NZ Wilderness Misadventure

NEW ZEALAND | Wed, 10 Oct 2018 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [331] | Comments [1]

New Zealand is such a gorgeous place, and that's part of why it's my favourite country. I love tramping (hiking, to you folk from the rest of the world) and I've done many fabulous walks both in NZ and elsewhere. My favourite walk in all of NZ is the ... Read more >


SPAIN | Fri, 10 Aug 2018 | By misslynee | Views [261]

Heimweh (German): home isn’t something we can expect from a place, but something we find within ourselves ^ Saw this quote at the beginning of the documentary I watched on my first flight out of Sydney and feel like it’s a great way to ... Read more >

INDIA | Mon, 23 Jul 2018 | By sushil | Views [224]

A weekend trip to Nainital from Delhi is one of the most relaxing getaways when you are in Delhi. It is about rejuvenating in the lap of nature and have quick access to all the urban luxuries (shops, ATMs, restaurants, public transportation etc.) at ... Read more >

Switzerland: Zurich & Thun

SWITZERLAND | Thu, 16 Aug 2018 | By misslynee | Views [197]

Side note: Switzerland would be a MASSIVE place if all the mountains were ironed flat.  Leaving Barcelona we decided, because our flight was super early, we just wouldn’t sleep and would go out the night before. Clearly, that idea has some ... Read more >

From here to there; Panama City

PANAMA | Sat, 25 Aug 2018 | By mitann | Views [180]

  We are off on another adventure! Panama City, Panama. We have not travelled for a while, at least for personal reasons. Tim is on the move every other week with work; we are starting to feel some kick back perks from his status with airlines ... Read more >

The Story of One Tale, Two Spots; The Real Panama

PANAMA | Thu, 30 Aug 2018 | By mitann | Views [145]

Nine days in one place on vacations has benefits, but, at times it also feels like we should be making more of our time. Today, we planned to rest our legs, enjoy the nice hotel / pool. We did this by relaxing in bed for a while, sitting in the sun ... Read more >

The Nazca Plain

PERU | Thu, 11 Oct 2018 | By mattso | Views [145] | Comments [1]

Here was a day that I ticked off another item on my bucket list. After a delayed start that afforded us time to do some souvenir shopping, the clouds finally cleared enough for our little plane to take off. I calmed the nerves with some coca tea (which ... Read more >

Half-Wallis Endurance Walk

WALLIS AND FUTUNA ISLANDS | Wed, 19 Sep 2018 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [145]

Last night, Michel suggested walking around Wallis. With the stifling heat and humidity, Wallis isn't perceived as a walker's paradise. This morning I opted for a test of endurance on the last day of the 33rd year of my life, and that's going around ... Read more >

Is Nothing Normal in Panama

PANAMA | Mon, 27 Aug 2018 | By mitann | Views [143]

We woke up a bit late this morning; Tim has a cold and either snored more than normal or I was more sensitive being in a new place. Either way, we got up and enjoyed a couple hours just relaxing in the hotel. We posted the blog and skipped breakfast.... Read more >

Take Me Away to Taboga Bay

PANAMA | Sat, 1 Sep 2018 | By mitann | Views [137]

Anyone travelling to a tropical destination envisions beaches with lounge chairs and umbrellas. We also thought there was a beach in Panama City; not exactly true. Taboga Island is your closest choice; not necessarily the best choice. There ... Read more >

Hot, Wet and Wonderful day in Panama

PANAMA | Sun, 26 Aug 2018 | By mitann | Views [132]

We slept quite well but were up and at it by 6am. We completed the blog and set off to breakfast. The buffet is included in our hotel cost, either for the price of our room or another travel perk; not sure. Either way, we are not huge breakfast eaters ... Read more >

The Good, Bad and Ugly of Panama City

PANAMA | Fri, 31 Aug 2018 | By mitann | Views [127]

Every morning we wake up to the sound of bells. There is a beautiful church directly across the street from the hotel. They insistently ring the bells starting at 0600; a call to church. Although the church is nice looking and the bells are charming, ... Read more >

Wallis, Oui!

WALLIS AND FUTUNA ISLANDS | Sat, 15 Sep 2018 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [124]

Bonjour! With not much sleep after arriving last night I'm in Wallis & Futuna: one of the world's least-known countries. Coming from NZ with temperatures at or near zero to the tropics where it's 27 C with high humidity makes for a major shock. It's ... Read more >

A Ruined Day in Panama

PANAMA | Wed, 29 Aug 2018 | By mitann | Views [120]

We had a lazy start to the morning, called home and lazily got ready to go out. We had intended to go for the free breakfast but decided it was not worth our time. Better to have an appetite for lunch. Our plan was to visit Panama Viejo; the first ... Read more >

UNITED STATES OUTLYING ISLANDS | Sat, 25 Aug 2018 | By amandajournal | Views [112] | Video

Not everyone can drive, and not everyone has the money to afford the petrol for a long trip either, which is where coaches, trains, and even planes come in handy. They aren’t, however, known for being the most comfortable experiences out there.... Read more >

Panama Canal, an Uplifting Experience

PANAMA | Tue, 28 Aug 2018 | By mitann | Views [110]

We got up pretty early to go to the Panama Canal; a must do experience – or so we are told. Tim, as usual, wanted to get there how the locals do. Sure, you can pay for Hop-on-hop-off for $33, a private transfer for about $27 per person; or, you ... Read more >
