Hampyeong and Naju Travel Troubles (Part Two)

After beating the odds of seedy cab ride roulette, our next destination was the Naju Image Theme Park - a popular set for filming historical Korean movies and television shows.  Potato and Sugar debated bus numbers and we searched for the right bus stop. "180?" "No, 160." "Are you sure?  We could take 106." 106 … Continue reading Hampyeong and Naju Travel Troubles (Part Two)

Meeting up with Scrabbles seemed especially … Continue reading Getting Weird in Gangjin (Part One)
