When we got there, our bus to Tongyeon didn't leave for a few hours. It was raining and miserable when we finally got to the ferry terminal. As I suspected, none of the good boats were leaving anyway. Only one ferry to an island about 20 minutes from the mainland was leaving in about an hour. So we took that one.
The city of Tongyeong is really pretty and tropical, as are the islands southwards
When we got there, there was absolutely nothing around. A bus took off before we even figured out where it was going, so we walked down the empty road until we came to a small pension (minbak).
It was all really confusing. I didn't feel like trying to communicate. All I wanted was a room and a map of the island, but this lady kept jabbering on. Good thing that Mandy was so patient with the crazy lady, who eventually managed to tell us some important information about the ferry, and also that there were no stores, saunas or restaurants nearby. I think it was probably only because of Mandy that we actually got any dinner or breakfast the next day. (Rice and kimchi and spam/jelly/peanut better sandwich)
For the rest of the night, we just lounged around. I finished the book I bought, drank some "maple rice wine" and half watched like, three hours of Law & Order, then went to bed.
