Taiwan, Vatican, New Zealand, Scotland…if I keep listing all the places that this article makes me want to go I will end up spontaneously buying an extremely expensive plane ticket.

Taking the train for the firat time in the States. Off to spend the weekend with my roommate/best friend from college in Virginia!
Actually, contrary to what I thought, the train seems to be pretty comparable to Korea in terms of convenience, comfort and even price. Of course lines only go around the East Coast, but I have a feeling my obsession with taking train pictures isn’t going away any time soon.

Photos from our DMZ Tour with the USO.

The tour was great, if exhausting. We started at noon and got back to Seoul around 7 p.m., and even though you’re not walking all that much throughout the day I could not keep my eyes open on the bus ride home.

The tour had all kinds of stuff that I hadn’t seen on my first tour. We got to climb down through a secret infiltration tunnel that North Korea dug in the 1970s. We visited Dorasan Station, the last station in South Korea that was built with the hope that sometime in the future people will be able to travel past the border. And, of course, we visited Panmunjeom, the area with the blue buildings up above where you can actually see North Korea and take a few steps across the border while inside one of the buildings.

This tour was another highlight of my mom’s trip to Korea, I highly recommend that you do a DMZ tour (whether with the USO or another guide company) if you get the chance.
