The Mountain Fortress City of Namhansanseong

Shannon and I had a free day as the rest of the family was rather tired of walking everywhere and Heather *gasp* had to work. We decided to take advantage and explore something not on our normal list.

We had discovered the fortress during our research of things to do while in Korea two years ago, but we never made it. Turns out it was a TON of walking, but some of the more beautiful old buildings we had seen. We walked for hours around the South wall and city fortress buildings. It was especially nice to see the clear(ish) sky being slightly above the ever-present smog around Seoul.

Gangnam 360° Style

Lots of what we did in Korea involved just wandering around and seeing where things would take us. Our afternoon wandering around Gangnam was a perfect example of that. Our mission of the morning was to go to the Samsung Building and buy this 360° camera (cant seem to get them in the US yet, and it was a LOT cheaper there). With that mission obviously successful, we had a few hours to wait for the rest of the family so we did some wondering. I really think this camera captures quite a bit of the experience. There’s always a lot going on in every direction there in Seoul.

Prologue

I have been slowly organizing the many hours of footage we captured over our 3 week adventure to Korea and Thailand. I think we have enough footage to put out 5-6 decent length videos, and probably about 6-8 shorter 360 videos. I hope to create a video a week, but I cant promise anything at this point.

So, with that in mind, here’s the Prologue chapter of the trip. Its not much, just our travel to Korea all thrown together, but it will do.

Ko Hong 360 Video

We have made it back home, and have started to decompress from the trip.

I have completed what is to be the first of MANY 360 Videos from the trip.  Its a tour around Ko Hong, an island in Phang Nga bay Thailand. This was our first night on the sailboat, and our guide took us on a diny through a cave to the interior of the island. We had no idea what to expect and were blown away.

And this is just the beginning!
