The last few days have been quite a departure from the normal Biathlon schedule! Rising early Saturday morning we departed Inzell, Germany and began a long trip to Pyeongchang, South Korea. Though it was only about 11 hours of flying, it took me to a different part of the world than I’ve been to before!
What can I say about Korea? Well, it’s different here that’s for sure! The people, the food, the language, it’s all definitely unlike anything I’ve experienced this far in my travels. But everyone is very friendly, and though I haven’t had kimchi for breakfast yet, I’m sure I will sooner or later!
Biathlon… It’s been quite warm the last week, so the snow has suffered. It’s been very soft for some of the training sessions, but our races are around 8 in the evening, so that will give it a chance to cool off. The course here is quite difficult, but I think it’s a course that suits me pretty well. Or so we’ll see in Friday!
Today I was able to get out and drive around the surrounding area. These are some of the sights, lots of construction going on still but the venues that are done look good so far!
