What, Where, Why, How?

UNITED KINGDOM | Sun, 17 Jan 2016 | By wanderlustgail | Views [140] | Comments [3]

Alone in Amsterdam

NETHERLANDS | Sun, 31 May 2015 | By emptynester | Views [246] | Comments [1]

The Complex Love of Lone Travel

CANADA | Mon, 29 Dec 2014 | By goingsolo | Views [78]

I love lone traveling because you can be anyone and no one at the same time. Anonymity is a beautiful but lonely state of being. Your past is irrelevant, your future is tenuous. You live on the edge, not knowing what the future holds, feeling anxious ... Read more >

MOROCCO | Tue, 8 Jul 2014 | By kakimono | Views [121]

 Whereas Friday was full of Americans, Saturday was not. I was running out shampoo and conditioner, so I decided that I should go get some more. Since shopping by myself in the Mdina was still a frightening prospect (so much noise and so many ... Read more >

So, what’s wrong with the life that I am having now? In theory, there is nothing wrong with my life now. The only thing is it is not quite the kind of life I really wish to live! I don’t deny that I am enjoying a life that within the common social criteria ... Read more >

El Nido, flying solo!

PHILIPPINES | Mon, 16 Nov 2009 | By missy_carrie_gee | Views [2306] | Comments [3]

I am now in El Nido. An island town with no ATM, and nobody takes credit cards. I took a 1 hour flight from Manila to Puerto Princessa, on the island of Palawan. Then took an 8+ hour bus ride to El Nido. A bumpy, dusty, cramped 8 hour bus ride. I ... Read more >

AUSTRALIA | Wed, 6 Aug 2008 | By allwelcome | Views [1303]

They say that the area west of Emerald, and compressed by the small townships of Sapphire, Rubyvale, Anakie and Willows are the largest gemfields in the world. And the world is a pretty big place, so I guess this must be quite a special feature. ... Read more >

SWITZERLAND | Wed, 1 Nov 2000 | By laura_tanja_king | Views [254]

I’m ice-cycling around Lake Lucerne - tracking car tyre tread, desperate to keep my balance because you will not readily find a bike helmet in this nation, for all of its otherwise upstanding approach. I’ll wear my own tread into the track until I leave ... Read more >
