4 dicembre 2013: in viaggio con Emma, emozioni e paranoie di una madre...

UGANDA | Wed, 24 Jun 2015 | By mwendemma | Views [22]

Ricordo un giorno di novembre in cui, rientrando in casa con Emma ho pensato...anzi, non era solo un pensiero, era un forte istinto, un suggerimento ad alta voce della mia mente, un bisogno corporeo, dell'anima...ho  pensato  che avrei voluto ... Read more >

Ass-umptions

USA | Sat, 16 May 2015 | By less_is_more | Views [13]

Yesterday we headed up to our local AAA office to take care of vehicle registration before we take off.  The two other reasons we went there was to get a set of passport photos taken for each of us for any visa needs we might encounter, and to get ... Read more >

A Mild and Well Managed Freak Out

USA | Thu, 14 May 2015 | By less_is_more | Views [32]

So we had an interesting moment the other morning when our geriatric lab ate the fourth (out of four) Typhoid pill that our daughter dropped onto the floor in the kitchen during breakfast.  As soon as it hit the floor so many new problems and stressors ... Read more >

Getting Closer

USA | Mon, 11 May 2015 | By less_is_more | Views [9]

We're flying out in 10 days.  We're no more prepared than we were at my last post.  We've made another REI run but only for things we had to purchase anyway like shoes for the kids.  I sent a followup email to the only WWOOF that we have ... Read more >

The other night we sat around reading

USA | Thu, 9 Apr 2015 | By less_is_more | Views [18]

The other night we sat around reading the Lonely Planet 'East Africa' travel book trying to decide what things we don't want to miss.  The list (for me) is quite long actually.  Because we are tent camping for a lot of the trip it only seems ... Read more >

Whelmed

USA | Tue, 7 Apr 2015 | By less_is_more | Views [14]

Dated:7 April 2015 (from blogger) I am definitely feeling whelmed by the planning involved for our 7-½ week Africa trip.  This is ridiculous to say  because we haven't planned anything.  It's not just that we haven't planned ... Read more >

1 off the Bucket List of Travel: Africa (Nairobi, Kenya)

PAPUA NEW GUINEA | Thu, 31 Jul 2014 | By carolepng | Views [112]

Even today 2 weeks later, I still can not believe that I have travelled to the other side of the world from where I am typing from.  I never thought I'd ever see the other side, let alone a continent that is so close to heart as it is also known ... Read more >

Crawling

RWANDA | Fri, 11 Jul 2014 | By jennpete | Views [80]

Kigali is starting to make a bit more sense.  I've gotten lost about three times in the past two days which just means that I know my way around even that much better now. Luckily Rwanda is a really safe place so I don't have to worry so much about ... Read more >

Here

RWANDA | Wed, 9 Jul 2014 | By jennpete | Views [80]

This is the official start of my fourth day in Africa. The people and landscape of Rwanda are beautiful so far. It's really lush and mountainous, the perfect contradiction to NYC's noise and tumult. I'm finding myself a bit overwhelmed, which is to be ... Read more >

A week in Mozambique

MOZAMBIQUE | Thu, 12 Jun 2014 | By jellybean | Views [127]

The yellowed interior of the dishevelled airport arrivals terminal did nothing to improve our growing concerns.  Only an hour ago we had been brimming with excited anticipation as the doors of a small jet opened on Maputo, the capital of exotic ... Read more >

There in their home

ZIMBABWE | Sat, 3 May 2014 | By sophiew | Views [69]

When she smiled at me for the first time, my stomach twisted and something rushed up into my throat that made me feel like I was choking. I blinked and realised my eyes were wet. Not the emotion I was hoping for. 'Shap!' she said to me, ... Read more >

Travel Namibia - Sandboarding in Swakopmund

NAMIBIA | Thu, 10 Oct 2013 | By extraordinaryexperiences | Views [4922] | Video

The Challenge They say that you should do one thing each day that scares you. I couldn’t agree more. Or as I like to say, if not scares you, challenges you. I love putting myself out of my comfort zone. Often. I find that each time I do, ... Read more >

Land of a Thousand Hills - Kigali to the Virunga Mountains

RWANDA | Mon, 7 Oct 2013 | By yvonnebooth | Views [2220] | Video

As the plane descended into Kigali I expected the black night to be lit up by a soft orange haze, a mix of dust and exhaust fumes illuminated by street light pollution just like I've seen in most developing country cities that I've visited. I expected ... Read more >

A mountain in the sky

TANZANIA | Sun, 29 Sep 2013 | By izzyabraham | Views [152]

I'm used to looking up at mountains, wondering if I'll ever feel energetic enough to climb them. However in a dull afternoon, I unexpectedly found myself at the top of one without any effort. And the highest mountain in Africa, no less. The flight ... Read more >
