Never say never.

The traditional fishing village and shipbuilding yards of Tongyeong is the last place I thought I would travel back to in this lifetime.

Needing ITU triathlon practice in preparation for Rio Olympic Games plus seeking a quality hit out before the following weekend’s Xterra World Championships in Maui.

I found myself roaming the live street markets once again with the bonus of racing success at the Tongyeong ITU Triathlon World Cup, South Korea.
