Aug 4, 2013 - Day 7 Walk through Cheolsan

On Sunday we were exhausted (at least I was!), and it was incredibly hot so we decided to have a more relaxed day and to check out Katie's neighborhood. We strolled up and down and main street and most importantly we explored the outdoor market which sells everything from an entire pigs head, to cooked meals, to shoes and homegoods.

Aug 2, 2013 - Day 5 Seoul and Insadong

After our trip to the DMZ, we decided to explore Seoul some more before heading back to Katie's apartment. We walked around the central area a bit before heading to Insadong to do some shopping. We walked down the main shopping stet in Insadong which was crowded and hot, but very interesting. Now would be a good time to point out that other than the guided tour of and an incident with an elderly gentleman in the Busan train station, no one had spoken English to us on this trip. However we had a number of interesting experiences with English...

Aug 1, 2013 - Day 4 Busan to Seoul

Today we took the trim back to Katie's apartment. But of course the journey could not begin without a trip for coffee (this time to Nescafé) before heading to the train. All of this time spent on public transportation gave me plent of time to ask Katie millions of questions about the city and people and for us to spend much time on wickipedia trying to find all of the answers. Once we returned to Katie's, we had a nice relaxing evening in of dinner prepared by Katie and American TV :) Aside from my bed (air matress) being in her kitchen as...

Jul 29, 2013 - Day 1 Cheolsan

I arrived at Incheon airport after a 14 hour flight so see Katie jumping up and waving from behind a group of people waiting for passengers. She promptly took my suitcase, led me to the bus stop, gave me a pre-loaded tmoney card, and we were off for an hour bus ride back to her apartment in Cheolsan. On the way I peppered her with a barrage of question: the most important being where are we eating? And how far away is the stone bridge? After dropping off my luggage, we set off in search of both. - Beth

Apr 3, 2013 - Seoul, South Korea

Seoul, the nation’s capital, is the heart and “soul” of South Korea. It is a mixture of chic shopping districts, traditional markets, historic palaces, towering office buildings and condominiums, crowded streets, and pulsating nightlife. When we flew in we were amazed to see literally hundreds of new high rise buildings, especially on the outer edge of the city. When our limo drove us through the city to our hotel, it still had many areas that had been rebuilt after the war and are now showing their age. Photos 1-3 An additional element of...

Feb 13, 2013 - DMZ

We took the USO Panmunjom tour. There was a strict dress code. We went to Camp Kim in Seoul at 8:30 am and had to present our passports to get our tickets. We board the bus at 8:45 and departed at 9 am. The drive was about an hour and we travelled along the barbed wire fenced highway that connects Seoul to Panmunjom called the "Freedom Road" or "Unification Road". The day was cloudy and really cold: -10 C. The first stop was the Third Infiltration Tunnel. This tunnel was discovered by South Korea in 1978 with help from a defector. When...
