A delightfully unexpected day on the rock of Gibraltar

GIBRALTAR | Wed, 22 Mar 2017 | By jakemoffat | Views [24]

I am not sure that I can say that our experience of Gibraltar was totally unexpected, as I don’t think we had any idea of what to expect. This may be the result of the fact that I only think about Gibraltar in terms of sixteenth and seventeenth ... Read more >

Santiago Sacatepéquez: Home of the Giant Kites

GUATEMALA | Tue, 21 Mar 2017 | By compassrose | Views [18]

“¡Cuidado!” someone shouts, as a quetzal with a six metre wingspan catches a gust and soars upwards, rippling my hair as I duck. The giant bird lurches as her reins pull taught, and she begins to dance proudly back and forth on the ... Read more >
