Route 17, our final stage, is quite a nice walk. It descends 6km following a river to the sea then along the coast to Jeju City.
After 23 days and about 400km we are back where we stated having circumnavigated the island of Jeju. Thank you Olle volunteers who explore the routes, waymarking and cleaning and made it possible.
Time to crack open the Cava! Found a nice 2011 Vintage too.
