Recently, I had the chance to spend a few days in Seoul and Daejeon Korea to work directly with one of our customers. It had been about a year since I was overseas last, so my travel bug was starting to surface once again. So off I went, on a Delta 777 that sounded like it was about to fall apart. Most of my days were tied up in meetings being productive, which isn’t the best way to explore a new country. Next time I’ll have to see if I can stay for an extra few days. Korea was an interesting place. There are multiple alphabets in use, nearly everyone has a new car loaded with tons of after-market electronic gadgetry, and you can get by surprisingly well without knowing a single word of Korean! The food was a challenge at times for those who can’t deal with seafood well, but that’s no excuse to be rude….try it, you might like it. I had a chance to do a little geocaching while I was in Seoul. This included my first intercontinental transport of a travel bug!

Unfortunately the map no longer works. There have been significant changes to the Google Maps API as well as browser security that prohibit this project from living on.
Oh, and before I forget: Beware the toilets.
