Korea Strait Horseshoe: South Korea to Japan
I recently ventured to South Korea with the American Red Cross' Service to the Armed Forces (SAF) program to facilitate workshops on Communication for children and adults on military bases. During my free time, I traveled around South Korea, and even visited the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), the border between North and South Korea. This was a little nerve-wracking, considering I was present for two of North Korea's failed missile tests. Once our program was over in South Korea (based in Daegu), I hopped on a train to the southern city of South Korea, Busan and took a 3-hour ferry across the Sea of Japan to the southern city of Fukuoka. This was so much fun, and much less expensive than a flight. From there, we took the train to Kyoto and later Tokyo, to explore and enjoy the culture, food and amazing surroundings Japan has to offer. It was a blast, and I look forward to returning back and exploring more of both countries in the future.
