- DURATION 60 mins
In the first of two talks, Sue Ablett, talks about her trip to North Korea. North Korea is the most secretive country in the world, and the least visited. So why on earth would you choose it for a holiday destination? And did you even know you could holiday there? Sue uses the word 'bizarre' more when talking about her experiences in North Korea than on any other trip she has ever done. At times it felt a bit like being in the Soviet Union in the early 70s, but far more strange. It was a very 'controlled' trip, as we knew it would be, and certainly a trip of many surprises, and perhaps just one or two anxious moments. Tune in to find out more!
