DMZ Tour Part 3: The Third Tunnel

At Paju, Panny and I were able to go into the third tunnel. This “work of art” was allegedly built by the North Koreans to gain a secret access and gateway into South Korea, one of many that have been found. You can wear what you like, as long as you have a blue hard Read more about DMZ Tour Part 3: The Third Tunnel[…]

DMZ Tour Part 2: Paju

Apart from the fact that “Paju” is a city of apparently 375,000, I sensed it’s real purpose could be as a northern protection point for Seoul in case of any attempted invasion or attack from North Korea. However, the city itself appears to be rather “fake”, and a lot of this is owed to the Read more about DMZ Tour Part 2: Paju[…]

DMZ Tour Part 1: Leaving My Seoul For Paju

Christmas Eve has always been a special day for me, as Christmas is a time for family, fun and not working. Especially in Christian countries.

First night in South Korea was going to be special no matter what.

God Give Me Seoul In Your Rock’n’Roll Babe!

Arrival in South Korea’s Seoul was another of life’s journeys that you have no reason why you take. My 6013 Airport Limosine (which by the way is merely a an elaborate name for a bus) strolled its way through darkness and a chilly air to lead me back to my good old friend Millwall Neil.

Arrival into South Korea: Inching Into Incheon

My Christmas trip of 2011 began properly when I touched down in Incheon. It was first time in South Korea. I’m one for milestones and in some records this was my 60th country, in others it was my 58th (or even my 63rd if you go by the Traveller’s Hundred Club list). The more important Read more about Arrival into South Korea: Inching Into Incheon[…]

World Borders: Panmunjom – Crossing The Border Into North Korea

To say you have been to North Korea is one thing. To say you simply did it with ease in a blue hut accompanied by a tour group and some members of the army stationed in the JSA (Joint Security Area) at Panmunjom (or Panmunjoeom) is not quite the same as eating a bit of Read more about World Borders: Panmunjom – Crossing The Border Into North Korea[…]
