Toby and Tilly tell of their adventures in South Korea with Diddilydeedot and Daddy-Peter . xxx


TOBY AND TILLY TAKE TIME OUT TO GO TO SOUTH KOREA

WITH DIDDILYDEEDOT AND DADDY PETER

Toby Bucket
and his Dog

Hello Toby and Tilly here to tell you all about our holiday in South Korea. We were there for 3 weeks with DiddilydeeDot

and Daddy Peter and I am going to help them tell our story as wherever they went, we went. I hope you enjoy our story and pictures. Love Toby and Tilly

Hello, it is nice, of Tilly and Toby to ask us to help tell you of theirs and our holiday in South Korea last year. We had the most fabulous time you could possibly imagine. In fact I am still finding it hard not to cry about what we left behind us.

The people first and foremost, so warm, so wonderful, helpful and full of living. Tilly and Toby also met some wonderful Jindo Dogs, Tilly cried a little as she was missing her Sweetie Pie.

 The landscape, how can I describe it, breath-taking is too small a word. In many ways it is a lot like my Welsh homeland, with Mountains and Rivers, small villages way out in the wild, yet my Wales doesn't have at the center of each mountain cluster, a city or two, skyscraper apartments, growing upwards from the road.

Toby was surprised to find that the Korean people also had lots of dogs. Most of those kept by the people who lived in the apartments kept really small dogs as pets as big ones would take up to much room and they would need lots of walks.

 The Metro, the Korean Underground stations were amazing. they all contain  huge markets, as well as the tube trains. Because DiddilydeeDot  was in her wheelchair most of the time, she found it great because there where elevators on the road side that could take the older people and the disabled down to the inner markets and tube trains, the markets ran for miles within the totally enclosed area of shall we say Busan or Gwangju, Pohang or Gyeongju. Amazing feats of architecture and design so Daddy Peter kept saying.

 We went across huge bridges that stretched from island to island, Tunnels that travel through mountain ranges for miles, and more tunnels that were under the sea connecting towns and roadways. Incredible.

Tongyeong

We went for a huge walk one day with DiddilydeeDot and daddy Peter in a place called Tongyong, we walked from our hotel all the way round the harbour, through one of the tunnels running under the sea and after going on one of the biggest cable cars in the world , we then walked all the way back. Ooops I say we walked I should correct that my daddy Peter walked and pushed Tilly and myself  and DiddilydeeDot in the wheelchair. So many wonderful things to see, so many wonderful markets and rides, strange little buses and taxis that took us everywhere. Gosh was there ever a dull moment?  ..... No, there wasn't honest, it was fabulous.

     Cable cars that reach for miles to the top of the mountains to aid the aged and hundreds, no thousands of hikers that want to reach the pinnacle of this great country.

     That's it for our memories. DiddilyDeeDot is  making a special  holiday blog and she is going to post it to all over everywhere :)

     Have you ever travelled from the road side down into a huge market underground in a glass sided lift designed for the ancients and mums with little ones?  They are every 100 or so meters along the roadside of every large street in each and every city/town/province in South Korea.

Jeonju Festival of Lights

Tilly's and DiddilyDeeDot's one huge sadness is that whilst travelling from the East to the West side, from Busan to Jindo Island, Mokpo to Gwangju, Gyeongju and back to Busan and Gimhae Airport and then back up to Gimpo, Incheon, Paris and Manchester, was that I never had a cup of tea, (don't ask, in a tea reknown for its tea there was "Nay PG Tips" ) Hot chocolate became the drink of the day, but then after the 15 hours of travelling by plane we eventually reached the Welsh border and home to Pontybodkyn and a Mug of PG Tips made with Welsh Water, oh but you better believe it, it was well worth the wait, sheer nectar  xxx .

     P.S. It wasn't all paradise, oh no!!!! Food, Food, what is this food.... believe me finding something that looked edible without it moving was very difficult and wereas in the Seoul Area etc. you have many Western, Chinese, Japanese, even Italian but not down the bottom end of South Korea, its fish, shell, fish, eels, crabs and most of them wandering round in a huge tank. I think we managed 7 meals altogether in the three weeks we were there and two of them I made myself.


A Little Note from Diddily Dee Dot and some music from South Korea



It was FANTASTIC. WE LOVED EVERY SINGLE MINUTE AND INTEND TO RETURN AS SOON AS WE HAVE SAVED ENOUGH PENNIES (an awful lot of them.) WE LOVE YOU SOUTH KOREA.

We are also hoping to take Toby and Tilly with us again., but I'm afraid Candy and Sweetie Pie weren't very happy being left on their own with Auntie Sylvia, she looked after them well but there is no one as good as Mummy and Daddy is there? ♥
