Olle 19

Olle_19_1

Olle 19 travels 18.8 km along the north coast of Jeju, heading eastwards. That’s long enough to spend some hours gradually getting wetter in the morning and some more hours drying out in the afternoon, with help from the stiff breeze. This Olle has the same features as many others – a rocky coastline, little harbours and villages, the occasional oreum and tracks through farm land. And plenty of grave sites throughout the landscape, some with tombstones with Chinese inscriptions; I wonder what stories they tell?

Rest for the weary was provided in Bukchon village, but it would have been more appealing had it been dryer. Soon after Bukchon the trail turns inland and only reaches the coast again at the end point – and the start point for Olle 20, of course.
