I had got the bike that I mentioned in my Ilsan post back in late June, the 25th to be exact. Like any new toy you just get, I was taking out my bike all the time. Any and every opportunity I had, I used to ride my new bike. This was actually my first bike I’ve ever bought, so it has an extra sentimental value to it. It also opened a new world of freedom that I hadn’t experienced before. I have always had this distaste for walking – it took too long. With my bike, I could go further and faster and explore more of not just my neighborhood, but all of Seoul. It gave me access to places that I was just to lazy to reach via by foot.
