South Korea is a country swathed in green, prodding its stony fingers skyward, and the Koreans are a people obsessed with nature, and with mountains in particular. Wherever you travel, you'll see Koreans out in the open air, clad in the latest adventure fashions, pushing ever onward and upward. With China looming to its west and Japan nudging it from the east, it's no wonder the country has played unwilling host to centuries of war games. But no matter how many times its neighbours try to swallow it, South Korea manages to survive intact.

Busan to Daegu

Mon, 16 Nov 2015 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [1056]

My time in Korea is winding down and in less than 24 hours I'll be in the DPRK. Victoria and Josh would host me after running into them coincidently on the train a couple of nights ago, and since I had stored some gear at Carlsen's house I had went there ... Read more >

Poetry with Dried Fish

Sat, 14 Nov 2015 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [907]

Poetry, fish markets, and open sewers would be the story of my day. None of them go together but the last two sure smell. As I left Carlsen's flat with he and a Dane named David, I had difficulty deciding what I wanted to do today. David hitchhiked from ... Read more >

Within a short bus ride of Busan is Beomeosa Temple. Modern high-rises exist a 10-minute bus ride away but Beomeosa Temple dates back to the 7th century! Monks practice their prostration and people come to offer prayers. As I was on a packed bus mostly ... Read more >

There's always that "ahhhh" feeling when you visit a new country for the first time. That's how I feel being here in Korea as it's definitely a place that hasn't disappointed. For simplicity's sake, in my blog I'm referring to South Korea as "Korea" ... Read more >

Miracle to the 34th Country

Mon, 9 Nov 2015 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [749]

The past 24 hours have been another major test of my travel endurance, and I sure hope when I'm 50 or even only a few years from now I can endure this type of experience and laugh about it with a friend over a coffee or a glass of wine. In the past 24 ... Read more >

Terry grew up forty minutes north of Baltimore City, though you wouldn’t know it, from all the farms, pastures, and corn. His parents were horse trainers, and his brother loved to ride; Terry was the strange one who didn’t. The family pony once bucked ... Read more >
