Travel Writers - Writing About Travel

The Olympic ceremony was on in Seoul, and the event was being transmitted live to the on-board television above the driver.

Next 1. Going to South Korea:
"You going to South Korea?" the American shouted across the platform at Shimonoseki.

2. Waiting With a Wad of Won:
A queue of locals waited at the other side of customs with a wad of Won to buy any surplus duty-free.S

3. Bus to Kyongju:
Kyongju was the home of the Shaman Kings. The valley is dotted with first to eighth century burial tombs, resembling giant-sized molehills.

4. Sightseeing in Kyongju:
A Saturday afternoon pastime of the local couples seemed to be to tour the well spread out cultural sights.

5. Nightlife in Kyongju:
A few cheap beers and a little musical entertainment, without a massage or a plate of cut melons, peaches, and grapes, was a little hard to find.

6. Changing Money:
When Dave returned, with change of ten thousand and two girls hanging on to him, I put seven in my pocket and handed over the initially agreed upon three.

7. Kimpo International Airport:
Everybody had a destination. The departure board flicked the flights away, new ones climbed the ladder towards boarding; my destination was Taipei.

8. The Seoul Olympics:
After ten days at the Olympics it was satisfying to be on the move again; to be a traveller looking for residence, rather than a resident among travellers.

9. Anonymous Solitude:
In Seoul there was never a quiet moment. Not even on the subway returning from the Sports Complex.

10. The Korean People:
The Korean people in Seoul seemed friendly and helpful, and the streets were clean; a necessity as much food trading was done at floor level.
