Video Diary: PyeongChang Winter Olympics
This years Olympic winter games were held in PyeongChang. I travelled together with my family to South Korea to be a part of this amazing experience. During my stay I made a video diary so I can show you a little bit what it looks like.
We flew from Amsterdam to Seoul and stayed there for one night. It was minus 10C degrees, but luckily we were prepared and had our hats and scarfs with us. The next day we took the high-speed train, specially made for the Olympics, to Gangneung.
This is a small town two hours away from the capital Seoul. There was a beach and lots of fish shops but for the rest there was nothing it’s very isolated from the rest of the world. The Olympic park was only 10 minutes away by taxi from our hotel. The snowboard and ski events were in the mountains of PyeongChang.
South Korea is famous for fried chicken and other delicious kinds of food. Korean people are very polite and do everything they can to make you feel at home.
Overall, it was an unforgettable experience to be at the 2018 Winter Olympics.
