Often I am kind of jealous and wonder how the bugger he gets the money to do such a trip since he has been on the road for at least a decade! Ian Coates on the other hand is using his retirement money and has been out there for about 10 years now. Myself I could only afford to stay out there for a little under a year.
But this (series) may interest the Korean guy and others. Since S Koreans and Americans can't enter the DPRK. I can enter the DPRK since they don't care about my nationality only my £££ but I arrived in Seoul 2009 when they closed the border and only opened it a few days later. after I had left. I did however get within spitting distance in Russia heading for Zarubino port for the ferry to Korea. Also it seems rather poor value to travel into the DPRK for $3000 when $3000 can buy a shit load of other infinately more interesting experiences (TCG is a stickler for experiences rather than stuff though there is a blurred boundary between such things).
Enough rambling here is the trailer.
