Travelling By KTXToday was my last morning in Changwon before returning to Seoul and eventually moving on to Australia. For our trip back up north the South Korean peninsula we decided to take the train. On our way here we had flown down with Korean Air, this time the train suited our schedule a bit better. I have to be honest I wouldn’t catch the train again on this route, the plane was much more comfortable. For once I could say that in Italy something works better than in Korea. The South Korean KTX high speed train isn’t that fast on the Changwon Seoul route. We took about 3 hours to cover a 300 Km distance. Just to compare in Italy you can cover 650 Km in 2 hours 50 minutes on the high speed trains.
So my piece of advice just spend the extra 20 euro or so and catch a domestic flight which are significantly more comfortable.
Our Evening in SeoulOnce in Seoul after a quick pop in at the apartment to drop off our luggage, we continued sight seeing where we had left of a few days earlier. Our first stop was an important place in my wife’s life, the university she attended when she was a student in Seoul, Ewha University.
The university’s library has a truly unique architecture and has become a landmark that tourists from around the world come to visit.
