During the beginning of this week, I've been planning on tackling one of the last two courses of Haebyeongil. It is course number 5, which stretches from Mongsanpo to Baeksajang. According to my weather app. it appeared that Saturday was going to be a clear day with a scattered clouds which was perfect for trekking. Taking the 0650 bus heading to Namyeon, Dylan, Kevin and I headed off. After around a 20 minute bus ride, we arrived at our starting point; Mongsanpo Beach. The trail starts off along the boardwalk and then heads into the woodlands. From there on, we also passed through rice paddies, a weland and a salt farm. Unlike the other sections of Haebyeongil, this section was relatively level which made it easier on our feet. After 4 hours of walking, we arrived at the strait which separated the peninsula of Taean from the island of Anmyeondo.
I have to be honest; South Korea will always be my favorite country to visit. I’ve been there last 2017, winter season and everything was worth falling in love to. It is amazing how this country captured the heart of many. By the way, O’ve never been to Haebyeongil. But I booked a ticket this February 2020 and I am set to go back there. I will make sure to have it on my itinerary so I will get to see personally the stuff you are talking about. This is making me so excited.
