I Miss the Mountains

MOROCCO | Thu, 24 Jul 2014 | By kakimono | Views [52]

 On Saturday morning, we got up for breakfast at 8:30. They brought out orange juice and coffee and Moroccan tea. If it weren't for the orange juice and tea, the fly in the coffee would have been even more upsetting than it was. They also had a ... Read more >

PERU | Tue, 3 Jun 2014 | By claudioula | Views [96]

The Impossibility of Halong Bay

VIETNAM | Fri, 30 May 2014 | By goingsolo | Views [31]

Sky scraping mountains erupted from the calm bay and were scattered about as far as my eyes could see. I couldn’t fathom how far Halong Bay stretched on for as we cruised throughout its vastness.  The sheer size put me in awe and made me ... Read more >

CHINA | Thu, 29 May 2014 | By mariazhig | Views [37]

It seemed like a good idea to spend a day in the park looking at amazingly beautiful red leaves. The place we chose was Fragrant Hills Park, one of the main tourist attractions in Beijing. When we got there, everything was perfect. We slowly walked through ... Read more >

Trekking in the Annapurna Foothills

NEPAL | Fri, 4 Apr 2014 | By lifeinthefoodlane | Views [119]

There is something about mountain hiking. It is liberating and energizing like few things are. I love mountain hiking, even if for me it comes with a good deal of huffing and puffing, a fair amount of under-the-breath swearing, and envious looks in the ... Read more >

VIETNAM | Wed, 2 Apr 2014 | By kpow | Views [62]

When we arrived in Dalat it was around 5AM and already clear we were at a higher altitude. I borrowed my friend's coat, not having my scarf handy. We were meant to have a free shuttlebus to our hostel but it looked like they were fillling up pretty quickly ... Read more >

A truly great wall

CHINA | Thu, 6 Feb 2014 | By kpow | Views [123]

This is a bit late, I know. I got a bit fed up with the computer at the hostel in Beijing (slow and restricted!) and stopped using it. Soz. So, it's confirmed. The Great Wall, is, in fact, great! One big tip for it though, no matter if you do a guided ... Read more >

Lovely in Laos

LAOS | Sat, 21 Dec 2013 | By lalo11 | Views [78]

Goodbye Nepal

NEPAL | Sat, 26 Oct 2013 | By joannawong | Views [113] | Comments [1]

The flight out of Kathmandu was probably one of the most picturesque I've been on - only comparable to our flight out of Lukla. Thanks to Dad secretly pre-booking the best seats again, I was treated one last time to a wonderful view of the Himalayas, ... Read more >

Back in Kathmandu!

NEPAL | Tue, 22 Oct 2013 | By joannawong | Views [119]

We're back safe and sound in the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu - constantly blazing horns, dusty roads, crowds of locals and tourists, and Nepali men trying to earn a quick rupee from five seconds of playing their traditional fiddle and calling it "Nepali ... Read more >

NEPAL | Fri, 18 Oct 2013 | By joannawong | Views [153]

Altitude: 3700m. We are making our way down. The sad news is we never made it to the top. The weather didn't look like it was getting better with what looked like a cold front heading towards Everest, suggesting another snow storm. There was also ... Read more >

Debuche

NEPAL | Mon, 14 Oct 2013 | By joannawong | Views [137]

Altitude: 3700m. We're at our first stop after Namche so I guess there's no turning back. It's only onward towards Everest Base Camp! It's been "PISSING" down like crazy today and I'm fully surprised that I, a true rain-hater, made it here without ... Read more >
