    Hi Rodrigo,
    Love your Blog.
    My wife and I are in our 60’s and we will be setting off around the world next year not quite backpacking as such but organising it ourselves with only two flights, Oz to Tokyo & Vancouver to Oz, the rest of our adventure from east to west will be overland or water.
    South Korea: Can anyone help with a map/schedule for buses in Seoul.
    China: Current map Beijing Subway.
    Any comments or advice on the other regions/countries we will be in would be welcome.
    Japan; SK; China: Central Asia; Russia; Nordic; Nth Europe; UK; Ireland; USA; Mexico & Canada.
    Thanks in advance.
    Keep writing great blogs.
    Dave.

      Hiking in Korea is probably the one thing I miss the most about living there, so I hope you get to enjoy the hike yourself 🙂

      And though the red leaves of fall are stunning, it can be quite lovely in the winter as well (although I think some of the trails are closed)
