Only In Korea Podcast: Parking & Driving In The ROK

Chance & Travis discuss the recent appearance of the Parking Vigilantes of Korea website (http://PVK.website) that sells stickers to place on horribly parked cars.

The duo then share their experiences dealing with the ROK’s unsafe driving conditions while also highlighting statistical data that shows Korea has the worst driving among developed nations.


Yeongtong Just Got Better!

Believe it or not, Yeongtong-dong in Suwon has just increased its position on some quality of life scale somewhere in the world. Previously I was frustrated over the never ending subway works right outside my apartment, but the good news is that they have finally been completed! Celebrations are in process.

Driving Through the Cameron Highlands

The road was dusty and the road was hot. Inside the air-conditioned car much of this didn’t matter as much. From Ipoh, the highway curved steadily between limestone bastions that seemed to have risen from the earth like mushrooms. Eventually the road climbed and these individual giant outcrops melded into larger formations, and before long we were winding through these formations that were now the beginning of a larger mountain range.

The more the road climbed, the further it went from what would commonly be referred to as civilisation. With that, the jungle seemed to take over as the trees rose higher and the variety, from what I could see from the back seat, seemed to be changing every time we went another hundred metres above sea-level.
