The first few Walkie Talkies of the year will be on flat or gently undulating paths which should be kept ice-free, and we will start a little later, at 10.30 by when it should hopefully be a little warmer!  The first walk will be an easy circular walk around the island of Yeouido - the Ecological Park on the South side and the Hangang Park to the North. The full circuit is just over 9km.
