November 9, 2012: This was the beginning stage of an epic tour of Asia that would completely change the way I looked at the world forever. Our journey begins in a quaint little country known as Taiwan. This place was really just a layover to the real start of the trip that would start up in Bangkok, but it was still a damn good place to start. In a previous post I went into my buddy James and my first stop at the Taipei 101, which was at one point the tallest building in the world. Almost right after we left there James was practically foaming at the mouth to go to this little village known as Jiufen. I was wondering what the excitement was about this little village here in Taiwan before we arrived, up until he hit me with this cool little piece of trivia: Jiufen actually inspired Hayao Miyazaki to create the epic piece of awesomeness that is this movie: Yes, Jiufen was the place that inspired the massive bath house in the incredible Japanese animated movie, Spirited Away.

So Why Would I Be Interested in North Korea In The First Place? I have always enjoyed traveling to the farthest regions of the world, like Germany, The Netherlands, Hong Kong, and Thailand. They are all very beautiful places that I wish to see again very soon. But the kinds of places I have always truly been intrigued with are the hotspots of the world, the places that we as Americans know very little about, other than what fear mongering tales that the mainstream media decides to throw at us on a daily basis.

I strongly recommend watching this documentary on North Korea all the way through. This video was created by Etherium Sky Films. Check out some
What if you only have a small amount of time in your South Korea trip, and you want to squeeze as much enjoyment out of it as possible before going on to your next destination? Photo: Stuck in Customs/Flickr under Creative Commons License 2.0 This is the question that I have just recently been hit with, for a very sad reason. I have a dear friend who lives in Seoul that I was hoping to meet and catch up with while I was out visiting. Unfortunately for both of us, the company he works for can’t let him off for the days that I’m going there. Therefore I’ll be flying there solo for this South Korea trip. Though it isn’t the end of the world, traveling to a foreign place (hell, anywhere really) isn’t meant to be a one man/woman experience. Sure, you can go see the different monuments of the world and see different and amazing cultures, but what makes travel as amazing as it can be is the people that you meet and the experiences that you share along the way. It’s an opportunity
