Namgang Expedition - 29 August 2008

Awesome trip down Nam River in Jinju, South Korea...what better to do at 4:30am than to glide gracefully down this beautiful river as Korea awakens with a stunning sunrise to greet a new a plastic toyboat...
A day filled with laughter and forgetting...bidding a dear friend farewell as her journey continues in her homeland ~ leaving future adventures behind and facing new ones.
Tamara - it's been SOOOOO awesome getting to know you!!!! God bless you warrior princess. You are absolutely one in a million...well...1 in 999,999...(it has to include crazy moi!)
Here are a few pics to commemorate the morning of August, 29.
As two 외국의's ("we-gugi's" = foreigners) make their way down Namriver in the wee hours of a lovely Friday morning (^o^) they are greeted with contradictory "anyeong's" and some killer stares from some of the more 'sour prudent' 아주마's (old ladies)...yip...crazy foreigners...gotta love them!

That's it Tamara!!!
All geared up and ready to launch!!!
Staring into time and space...where does this journey lead to...Namgang Tree.
Jinju-seong (Fortress)

Some keen skaters ...all in a row ^^,


Some funky Koreans greeted us as we passed this!!! "Fighting!!!"(saying that means 'go for it' / 'keep going' or just about any motivational slogan you need at the moment!) They also sent us hearts across the waters!!!

Taxi - Home please, 아조씨!!!

After...awesome morning!

caPtivating Pohang August 2008

Trip A.1
Check out this video clip of the fish martket

From possibly the biggest fish market in South Korea in Pohang to the magical lighthouse on the 'Tiger's tail' this beautiful east coast town has much to offer in sights, smells and scenic detours (^o^)

Trip A.2 with a Bibi & a Tam

From 15-16 August, Tamara, Bibi and I investigated the lighthouse at Homigot (literally the tiger's tip of its tail - the bit sticking out to the right of South Korea). Here's a few things we got up to captured on film (well...the digital kind in any case!)...

Trip B - the worx

On the 2nd of August we returned for an international fireworks festival during which we were entertained for about an hour non-stop with teams from China, South Korea and Spain - of course there was a grand finale at the end with an explosive combination of all three

Thanks to the awesomest people we got to see the awesomest places and experience the most awesomest things!!!!!!!!!!! Got to go home with a bang :)
