Seoul searching, border of North Korea

Story behind the picture

“While visiting friends in South Korea, I jumped at the chance to see North Korea via a guided bus tour from Seoul. I found the prospect of crossing the border both fascinating and a little scary. This gift shop was the last in a series of bizarre stops from Seoul into Keasong, an hour’s drive across the Demilitarized Zone into North Korea. The shop assistant’s expression is what most appealed to me. It’s hard to tell if she is bored, hungry, tired, or just distrustful of me.” We’d love to include your best new travel photos (at 300dpi) and the inspiring stories behind them. Send them with a pic of yourself to postcards@lptraveller.co.uk
