Most people want out of North Korea. Wendy Simmons wanted in.<br /><br />In My Holiday in North Korea: The Funniest/Worst Place on Earth, Wendy shares a glimpse of North Korea as it’s never been seen before. Even though it’s the scariest place on Earth, somehow Wendy forgot to check her sense of humor at the border.<br /><br />But Wendy’s initial amusement and bewilderment soon turned to frustration and growing paranoia. Before long, she learned the essential conundrum of “tourism” in North Korea: Travel is truly a love affair. But, just like love, it’s a two-way street. And North Korea deprives you of all this. They want you to fall in love with the singular vision of the country they’re willing to show you and nothing more.<br /><br />Through poignant, laugh-out-loud essays and 92 never-before-published color photographs of North Korea, Wendy chronicles one of the strangest vacations ever. Along the way, she bares all while undergoing an inner journey as convoluted as the country itself.

<b><em>A Family’s Past, a Nation’s History, and an Island’s Future</em></b><br /><br />From Hokkaido to Sakhalin: Part I sees author G. B. Hilton in Hokkaido, Japan, gazing out over the Sea of Okhotsk at far off Sakhalin Island. From that first glimpse of Russian soil, the seeds of adventure take root.<br /><br />Long disputed by two great nations technically still at war and prized for its rich natural resources, Sakhalin Island is an adventure travel destination unlike any other. The journey to Russia’s Sakhalin Island by ferry from Hokkaido Japan takes about six hours, but author G. B. Hilton and his wife discover that this voyage also spans decades.<br /><br />With history hanging in the air, they travel by sea to the birthplace of her father, who as a boy fled advancing Soviet forces at the end of the Second World War. Together, they explore southern Sakhalin (known as Karafuto in Japan) in an old 4X4 and discover a land of living history, stunning natural beauty, and unforgettable people. <br /><br />With keen observations and vivid writing, Hilton brings the geography and people of Sakhalin Island to life, resulting in two-part travel story that's moving, poignant, funny, and unforgettable.

The original title for this ebook edition of "My Disillusionment in Russia" was "My Two Years in Russia". The American publisher, without consent from Emma Goldman, took the liberty to change it.<br /><br />In addition, the original manuscript was copiously edited (or more accurately, bludgeoned in half) and the cover, as you can see in our edition, was left blank.<br /><br />Most online and ebook editions of this work are riddled with typographical errors which we painstakingly corrected so you will not need a hard-copy of the original book for a reference!<br /><br />Every effort has been made to maintain the original American publisher's integrity of their product. (By 'integrity', we mean a close to the original printing as possible, and nothing else.)<br /><br />So, sit back, relax and enjoy reading this book as it was unintended.
