Wow – What a month January has been. In just one month I was able to:
– Go on a weekend skiing trip with Bec, Kristina and Corey. We had an awesome time, where Corey learnt to ski and I…. tried. Still, it was good fun, and everyone had a great time. That night we had a great ‘home-cooked’ meal of Samgupsal and Ramyeon noodles, and then they all went out for a bit of karaoke! I was too tired and went to bed early, but they reported that good time were had by all. We ended the two days of skiing at a (warm) waterpark at the ski resort.
Technically North Korea also does tours to the DMZ, but I think it’s limited to high-ranking members of the North Korean military and their families.
– Go on a tour of the DMZ with my co-worker and her sister, and learn about the war between South and North Korea. A great tour. Very commercialized, but after having done that tour, I was a lot more worried about the situation. No matter what it actually is, the US soldiers guiding the tours truly believe there is a threat from the North. I would recommend everyone who visits South Korea to do the tour. Technically North Korea also does tours to the DMZ, but I think it’s limited to high-ranking members of the North Korean military and their families.
