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 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 is a town for South Korean standards. Why did I go to a town? To experience traditional Korean culture 🙂
Seoul – that doesn’t just mean Gangnam Style, shopping and neon lights, but also racoons and temples 😉

The first ten days of my mini trip around the world have passed, and it’s time to post something again 🙂 My first stop to was Beijing, the capital of China, and in this post you can read what has happened while I was there.
Many people think that there are no white spaces on maps anymore. Tourists in the Himalayas seem to bump into each other at the top of Mount Everest and have been able to post to Instagram via a special mobile network for years.

The exact numbers differ, but most statistics agree that much less than 20.000 international tourists
After so much military stuff and underground sights I’ll write about some of the overground sights in this last article about Moscow. I’ve heard there are some nice ones 😉
After my visit to Bunker 42 I’ll just stay below ground and write about my experiences from the Moscow Metro. The Metro of Yekaterinburg had already left me quite impressed, but Moscow was in a different league 🙂
