Axis of Evil Ski Tour Part 2, DPRK DAY 1

A travel blog entry by gisnoborders

... br> This one week tour will take us around possibly the most fearsome of the axis of evil countries at the moment, whilst also forcing us to quit the internet cold turkey. €400 3G sim cards are available but for obvious reasons we gave them a miss. Quite different from the 3GB sim I got for 5 Omani Rials last week!

Whilst the guides, Puk and Chon, did say to present flowers at the monument marking their victory over ...

Into the DPRK

A travel blog entry by richardcowley


We all meet at Koryos office at 10am to catch the bus to the airport to take us on our 1 hour 30 mins plane ride to Pyongyang. Getting through immigration having the 72 hour transit visa was a breeze and we experienced no problems at all.

The flight was fine and we got our first taste of North Korea when they showed throughout the whole flight a concert to honour their country and the great leader, the burger they provided was ...
