Yes another post about sex museums and parks in South Korea. This time we go to Jeju Island famous for its many places devoted to sex. We managed to visit 2 of those places and I have some pictures and videos to share with you.
Be warned there is a lot of shocking content in the video's so if you are faint of heart you might have to skip this weeks update and come back next week for a more "friendly" update. ^^
Jeju Love Land is located right next to Mysterious Road. So you can see both of these attractions at the same time. ^^
The only other comment I could really make is once you have seen one sex museum or sex theme park you have seen them all. Nothing is really that different unless you have some particular interest in some historical nature regarding the museum piece.
All of these places are easy to find on Jeju. There are many pamphlets or tourist guide books with directions to hundreds of attractions all over Jeju Island.
Well that was a short update for this week. I hope you are having a good time and I will see you again next week with some new material. ^^
Ms Bikini Korea
Model Korea Championship
This weekend just past was the 2013 Musclemania Universe Korea held in Seoul at Kunkuk University.
Once again there were a lot of competitors and huge fan support.
I was there for a majority of the show but once again I left before the end. I was lucky to be seated in the VIP section maybe because I am a foreigner or I had a big camera I was left alone when everyone else was moved out of the area so other personalities and bodybuilders could sit in that section.
I took a few photo's and I made a couple of videos for you to have a look at. Here they are: - The lighting at this years event was unusual so the pictures are quite different from last year.
Some of the winners:
That's all for this week. I hope you are having a great time so far this week! ^^
I will see you next week with another Jeju update. ^^
Dam & Roo Resort Jeju Island South Korea
Continuing my Jeju island report I wanted to spend my time this week describing some of the different types of accommodation you can expect to find on Jeju.
I had the lovely pleasure of staying in a resort (Dam and Roo) and the luxury Lotte Hotel Jeju.
Lets have a look at the Lotte Hotel First. Right in the heart of Jeju is the Lotte Hotel. A huge complex with thousands of rooms, several pools, restaurants, pool bar, camping area, casino and even a Hello Kitty floor Lotte Hotel is a fantastic place to enjoy some fun and relaxation.
Have a few dollars handy if you want to eat on site as the restaurants are not cheap. We went to the buffet restaurant that served perfect steak, sushi and many other dishes and for 2 people it cost 164,000 won. After the buffet there is a fire show behind the restaurant (see below). Breakfast was also a little expensive at 80,000 won for 2 people....!
Lets Have a look at the place and also some YouTube videos:
One of the hotel guests was kind enough to let us come in and see what it was like inside one of the Hello Kitty rooms. ^^
Dam & Roo Resort Jeju Island South Korea
The other place I was lucky to stay at was the Dam & Roo resort. Far from Jeju city the resort is out in a quiet area with perhaps 20 rooms, some boasting there own private swimming pool! The meals here have a limited menu but are very reasonably priced not more than an average restaurant and the convenience store at the hotel is also cheaper than I expected. There is an outdoor pool area and barbecue area. The suites are very nice and it is very quiet so a great place to relax.
Here are a few pictures:
Well that's all from Jeju this week. Next week I may take a break from Jeju to bring you an update on the bodybuilding event taking place at Konkuk University this weekend. For more information check out this link: http://m.blog.naver.com/jpeee/150159977860
Until next week have a great time! ^^
** Also thank you for watching my YouTube video's. ^^ I now have more than 500,000 video views on my channel ** ^^
Over the next few weeks I will be posting various travels that we went on.
This being the first post I wanted to take you on a virtual tour by showing you some of the driving scenery. Jeju is quite different from the rest of Korea and traffic there is quite light in comparison.
We will also visit Mysterious Road or some people call it Ghost Road where the laws of physics seem to not apply....
So here we go. ^^
Mysterious Road is quite famous on Jeju and is quite a tourist attraction. The legend has it that if you stop your car on the road you will roll forward up the hill or roll backward up the hill (depending on which side of the road you stop on of course). Either rolling bottles or cans on the road or stopping your car to see if it rolls by itself is more common than you would imagine. Watching for several minutes I saw perhaps 5 cars stop and a bunch of Chinese tourists rolling bottles and jumping all over the road! The best way to locate this road is to find out where Jeju Love Land is. The road is right outside you will see the coffee shop and Mysterious Road is right there and runs for 50 - 100 meters past the coffee shop. Go past the coffee shop until you see a sign saying "Mysterious Road Start".
Renting a Kia K5 we drove to our first place of stay the resort Dam & Roo (more on that next week along with Lotte Hotel Jeju). Jeju seems to be the land of the K5 as there are dozens driving all over the island. I think it is a favourite car for all the rental car agencies.
Lets take a little drive on a typical Jeju road:
Well this is my quick update for this week. Next week I will show you a couple of the amazing places you can stay and perhaps something more. ^^
Over the coming weeks I will be sharing more from Jeju Island but I will take a break for a week to bring you Musclemania which will be happening on the 11 of May.
Until next time have a fantastic week! ^^
I managed to sneak past the border patrol and enter the mart carrying my sophisticated surveillance equipment. I am now reporting this to you in an encrypted broadcast.
It was a dangerous mission and several people almost uncovered my subterfuge as they glanced into my shopping trolley but by using escape and evasion techniques I was able to get out of there alive! Lets take a look at what kinds of hidden and unspoken about goodies South Koreans are enjoying that the rest of the world is unaware of!
(P.S. I was getting over a throat and chest infection this week so I chose to rest and recover rather than go out and get worse as I am going on holiday next week! ^^ but more on that later. Hope you enjoy this simple post this week though.) ^^
E-Mart is one of three (or four if you count Costco) major supermarket and retail outlets in South Korea. The other two are Home Plus and Lotte Mart. Selling not only food items, most E-Marts and other like stores sell clothing, toys, books, automotive, computing items, sports equipment, music and more. Its effectively a one stop shop for all your needs.
Check out the link below if you are curious about what you can buy in South Korea:
As I said before I will be on holiday for the longest time in 3 years! I will be taking 5 days off to enjoy South Korea so I will be posting late next week with a few highlights from my trip. So enjoy yourselves this week and if you are also on holiday next week have a fantastic time! ^^
Last weekend was the annual Coffee Show in COEX Seoul South Korea.
As per last year there were many coffee enthusiasts that attended to see and sample all the new and exciting coffee brands on show and also play with some of the coffee equipment.
As I am no coffee connoisseur I could not fully appreciate what there was to see or sample and I spent my time there just casually looking around and taking a few snaps now and then. The expo was quite big this year with many exhibitors from all over the world. The thing that caught my eye was this new way to brew coffee from a capsule. We have one of these machines at work but I saw 2 or 3 other variants at the show. Basically you insert a coffee capsule into the machine and the machine heats up the water forces it through the capsule and you have a better tasting coffee than instant.
Anyway as I said I am not much of a coffee drinker so check out a few pics and the slideshow and if you are excited mark it in your diary for next year. ^^
Well that's all for this week. I wonder what I will have for you next week? I don't even know myself. ^^ So until then have a great week!! ^^
