What the heck is

Destination: Taean-gun (Chungcheongnam-do)

You won’t confuse this area of Chungcheongnam-do with an active, happening getaway. That said, a night in a pension may be the cure for what ails you. The word pension implies a retiree’s monthly income, but can also refer to a family-owned guest houses not unlike a summer cottage or a bed-and-breakfast (without the breakfast, however). They’re a pleasant shift from a cheap love motel, albeit at a significantly higher price point. Thanks goes to an unnamed friend of Kiwi’s who had a reservation they ended up passing on to us.

Destination: Cheonan Postal Museum (Cheonan, Chungcheongnam-do)

I know what you’re thinking – a postal museum? – and have this to say: I love getting off the beaten path. Since people seem to cover the same places over and over again, I’ve made it a point to try seeing the places where most foreigners don’t venture.

The 우정박물관 (u-jeong bak-mul-gwan) was originally on the fourth floor of Seoul’s main post office. After the building was torn down, the postal museum moved here in February 2004, and is part of the Ministry of Information and Communication Officials Training Institute in Cheonan. The museum covers the entire history of the postal system, but covers it in a fairly swift fashion that doesn’t take long to see.
