This a picture from the Everland theme park in South Korea. So lets start from the beginning of the trip. So, i am 11th grade student studying in Aditya Birla World Academy in Mumbai. In the month of November, my school decided to take part in an international math competition and so they selected 6 people from 11th grade. Three boys and three girls. I was super-excited as I had never been to South Korea, especially for a Math competition. So our school bought the tickets of Singapore Airlines and so began day one of our trip. It was a connecting flight via Singapore and so I had converted Indian rupee to Singapore Dollar for shopping on the airport. TBH, the air hostesses were very beautiful and they flight was amazing. When I landed on the Singapore's Changi Airport, me and my friends straightaway went for shopping and returned after 3 hours when we had to board the flight again. Fast-forwarding the trip, we landed in South Korea, early in the morning and I was very sleepy and jet lagged. We rested the whole day and I woke up in the evening. Since we had nothing to do throughout the evening, my friends decided to go and have dinner in a restaurant. I know it seems damn cool, but trust me it was the worst decision of my life. As I am a vegetarian, it was impossible to eat food as there was no vegetarian food. It was even worse for my jain friends. there were two people who ate non-veg and they had the time of their lives with all the best sea-food in the city.So, we decided to do the craziest thing in the world. Eat ice-cream in -5 degree temperature. Trust me, the ice-cream was crazy as fuck. it was the tastiest ice-cream I have tasted in my life. The two days went the same way. We chilled throughout the night and slept in the day. the nights in South Korea were the best ones I have had.

Once a year inside the Hermit Kingdom, the government of North Korea opens up it’s doors, if only slightly, for foreigners to come in and run Pyongyang city. While you may get a false glimpse of what life is like north of the border it’s something to say you’ve stepped over into this mysterious nation. Of course, expect changes from the advertised route and tight regulations within the country. There’s a lot of fine print on their official website and even the dates of the event are subject to change last minute as per the demands of the Eternal General Secretary of the Party, Kim Jong-Il.
