Trip to Geoje Island

We have had family to stay so am a bit behind in my blogging. So, a bit later than usual is our trip last weekend to Geoje Island. Geoje is a reasonable sized island off the coast of Busan, and connected to the mainland with a fantastic series of tunnel under the sea, then a short bridge, tunnel though a mountain (on a intermediate island) before the long span bridge over to Geoje itself.

We stayed the night in Okpo, on the many small towns, which is home to the Samsung ship yards (they also have oil rigs yards but they are on the other side of the island.) Katrine enjoyed taking some photos of the boats.IMG_0808The next day we headed for the beach,which is the main reason we came to Geoje, we went to Gujora Beach on the South-east coast and it was stunning and the sand was soft and very fine.

Not the best sand castle sand but great fun to play in.

You can even camp right of the edge of the beach - one for next time!

Gregor very quickly made friends with this group of boys - the fact they couldn't speak the same language didn't bother then at all.

It was an incredibly beautiful cove, a great place to relax and read my book.

We had planned on spending two nights on the island, but Katrine came down with a stinking cold and the forecast was for heavy rain on the Sunday so we headed home.

And hit the worst traffic I have been in since we got here! We were just sat in queue after queue, it took about 5 hours to get home, nearly double what it should have taken.
