North Korea…an aspirational destination?

North Korea has fascinated me. While it’s not everyone’s ideal destination, it definitely seems…nice for a week-long stay.

Pyongyang (the capital of North Korea)

I mean, what’s going to be a better trip report than Air Koryo from Beijing to Pyongyang and then a review of the Koryo Hotel/Hyangsan Hotel/Kaechon Political Prison Camp?

On a slightly unrelated note, I’ll be going to Seoul, *South* Korea next April. I have no idea where I’ll be staying (I can’t confirm they’re all chain hotels), and I have no idea which airline I’m flying, and I have no idea about the duration. Updates by next March!
