As my trip started in Korea and I had the chance to see my favourite K-Pop group there, I start my trip review in Korea as well. First the basics: Flight was on the 20th of Decembre, like always, with FinnAir and, also as always, I was glad when we finally landed at Seoul, Incheon Airport. There my sister, together with a friend, collected us and we were able to get ourselves some crazy tasty Ice Cream there. Mine was also shaped like a rose, to the dismay of my sister, who just got a regular cone. *heh heh* Also we received some lollies for free. Read carefully, not lolis but lollies! Not that I wouldn’t had appreciated the other ones as well – supposedly. Continue reading
Traveling back to Seoul from Tokyo was uneventful. As we were going IN the country there seemed to be no need for tighter security. A bit strange, if you think about it: When getting OUT of Korea, you and your luggage will be checked severely because of the Asian Games, but when you are entering and be an even more potential security risk, no ones cares. But I never had that much of a logical mind to understand such reasonings. Continue reading
As you already know, I was planning to fly from Seoul to Tokyo for spending some time there: Going to idol events, meeting Caio, going to idol events, show my sister the town, and yea, going to idol events. So what could be the worst happening: Nuclear break out in Japan? North Korea suddenly attacking South Korea? Hm, well yes. Sure. But I mean in my case. Think again.

I help you out here: It would be missing the flight, not because of my mistake but because of terrible mismanagement of a organization responsible for the planning of the ASIAN GAMES. But let’s start at the beginning, shall we? Continue reading
The next day we were meeting up with my studying sister, so that we could eat together. We decided for the obvious: Samgyeopsal. Always a pleasure, with all its pork! The rest this day was sightseeing in the inner city, giving my sister her luggage with winter clothes (finally getting rid of this as it was a hell uncomfortable running around with two big suitcases the day we arrived) and accompanying both my sisters this time to JYP. I had to this at least once. We arrived at the station Apgujeong and made our trip alongside all the noble boutiques to Baskin’ Donuts right opposite to the JYP building. But it was already full of female teenagers, even having a bunch of girls sitting outside on the pavement. Continue reading
My second trip to Japan and first to South Korea is now over. How I become to dislike Germany now. Comparing my small village and the German attitude in general to Tokyo and Seoul is quite demotivating. Lucky the next trip can be seen already on the horizon. Continue reading
My next trip to Japan is already around the corner: I will take off with my youngest sister to South Korea on Monday, the 15.09.2014, to visit my other sister there, who is a student in Seoul. One week later me and my younger sister will fly to Tokyo again, staying there for the duration of a week until I go back to Seoul for another 7 days. A lot of idol events are possible, some of them already planned. Here is my rough schedule: Continue reading
