This post will concentrate on the visit I made to the DMZ
When I initially booked the tour, it was for a visit to the DMZ and the Panmunjom peace village.

This was the tour I was most looking forward to on my visit to Seoul. I wanted to get as close as possible to North Korea and the border to see what it was really like. To see if it was really as it is shown on TV.
About 3(ish) weeks before I was due to leave, I got an email stating that the tour was cancelled owing to the current situation with the US and North Korea and the talks that were scheduled.
I was told that the tours would start again on June 12th. I though I was in luck – alas not. The next available tour was June 26th. I missed out. I was offered a DMZ and 3rd Tunnel tour instead and decided to take that.
It’s really hard to put in to words how awesome and sad this day was.
