Seoul and Deagu

After a very long flight (I still don't fare well on airplanes, since sleeping upright is just impossible for me), and then a 1 hour train ride, I was back in Hongdae, Seoul, South Korea.

The jetlag wasnt very cooperative, and I woke at 2 a.m. again.

Trying to minimize my air travel as much as possible (frankly, airplanes are just the most boring and tedious way to travel), I had to figure out another way to get from Japan to South Korea. At their closest, these 2 countries are still seperated by some 200 kilometers of water. Luckily, there exists a boat that can cover that distance in just 3 hours!
However, getting from the remote fisher village near Nagasaki that I stayed at to Fukuoka on time proved barely doable. Luckily, I managed to get to the harbor with a whole 10 minutes to spare!
