New and traditional ways of exploring the globe, and your own backyard.

Wednesday, July 6, 2011

It was announced today that the 2018 Winter Olympics will be in South Korea for the first time in the modern international sports competition's history (which had their start in 1896). This comes after two failed attempts to host the Olympics by South Korea.

The country, hosting in Pyeonchang, received 63 of 95 votes from the council, though they only needed 48. The Associated Press also reports that these will be the first winter games hosted in Asia outside of Japan.

Well..I have always wanted to go to this part of Asia.....
