I wanted to split up my content in a neat and tidy way. I realised the easiest way to do this would be to split up my content by category.

Dandong and the Chinese People’s War Museum
The train from Pyongyang took us back to Dandong. The first order of business was to find a hotel.
We ended up staying at the last true Communist hotel in China. The staff ran it as a commune, with no one staff member being the manager.
When Plugins Collide
When making a new post one day I came across a bug in my website. I created a new post, attached a featured image, and hit preview. I got a messed up page that had two copies of my featured image above the page content.
Koryo Museum and the Road to Dandong
Before returning to Pyongyang we visited the Koryo Museum in Kaesong. This museum houses many relics from the Koryo period. At that time Kaesong was the capital of Korea (the whole peninsula).
The default excerpts in WordPress are, in my opinion, a bit crap. All images and subheadings are stripped out and it always stops in the middle of a sentence. It also ends in that “[…]” which I don’t li.
Ukraine versus THE Ukraine
Why do we English speaking folk insist on calling it THE Ukraine instead of just saying Ukraine. We don’t call it the France, so why does this happen?
What You Want: Ukraine
Ukraine is a country in Eastern Europe. It is the largest country contained entirely within Europe.
After leaving the DMZ our guides took us to Kaesong to have lunch. On our way their our guide explained how the culture of side dishes worked in the DPRK.
I spent the better part of last week improving my blog, and I figured I would write about my experiences. WordPress is a great platform and I’m having fun working with it.
Panmunjom: Demilitarised Zone
On our second day in North Korea we travelled to Panmunjom, the heart of the Demilitarised Zone. This would be the second time that I’d been here, the last time being from the South.
Road to Panmunjom
We had to set off early to get to Panmunjom.
