In 522 goddess Benzaiten emerged the island of Enoshima from the sea and chased a dragon away. We don’t know if that’s true, but Enoshima is a top spot for tourists and nature lovers today 🙂
Japan in Brief
In Fall 2017 I traveled through Japan for three and a half weeks. How are the country and the people? How do you get around? Do you really have to be rich to see Japan? All the questions and all the answers are in this post 🙂
Busan Cat Cafè and Jagalchi Fish Market
What do you do when the sky is gray all the time, it’s raining, and your mood isn’t at its best level? Right, you go pet a cat. Or fish. There’s no shortag of both in these two attractions in Busan 😉
Train to Busan
After the last two long-distance bus rides I was not too interested in covering the last leg of my trip through South Korea by bus again. So I took the train from Gyeongju to Busan. Wait, Train to Busan? I hope it also works without all the Zombies… 😉
Gyeongju: Of (Grave-)Hills and Mountains
Gyeongju was the capital of the Korean Peninsula for several hundred years. It is a small city, but very popular among Koreans due to its historical significance.
Andong: Of Masks and Confucius
Andong is a town for South Korean standards. Why did I go to a town? To experience traditional Korean culture 🙂
One Day… in the Demilitarized Zone between North and South Korea
When the media report about South Korea, it is rarely about the beautiful things. Sometimes it’s about the most recent high-tech toy from Samsung or LG, but most of the time about the still ongoing conflict with North Korea.
Seoul: Oppan Raccoon Style!
Seoul – that doesn’t just mean Gangnam Style, shopping and neon lights, but also racoons and temples 😉
After 61 days on the road I’m finally back home. Want to know how it all went? Read all the details here 🙂
