El desenlace. Colombia: árboles, "motochorros" y más sorpresas

COLOMBIA | Sun, 4 Mar 2018 | By nortina | Views [203] | Comments [4]

Retomemos. Santa Marta. Pulga. Picaduras por doquier en las piernas. Verdaderos cototos. Picazón. Calor. Mucho calor. Humedad. A pesar de todo eso, no puedo ser malagradecida porque lo pasé bien allí. Creo que diosito me ... Read more >

IRELAND | Sat, 3 Mar 2018 | By nortina | Views [184] | Comments [4]

*Capítulo viajero escrito en el aeropuerto de Santiago, camino a Colombia, octubre de 2017. A veces me cuesta creer que viví en Irlanda, país de James Joyce, Oscar Wilde, U2 y The Cranberries. Que, de hecho, trabajé... Read more >

Colombia, la parte triste de la historia aunque incompleta

COLOMBIA | Tue, 20 Feb 2018 | By nortina | Views [172] | Comments [3]

Mi viaje por Colombia fue una aventura de esas que parece n sacadas de una cámara indiscreta. Me pasó de todo. Zancudos, pulgas, ladrones/asalto, rayos X, inyección, tarjetas bancarias que no funcionaban, "beca" en Panamá... Read more >

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 >

  Queridos fans:  Deben saber que muchas cosas –buenas y malas- han sucedido en mi vida desde que escribí la primera parte de esta linda (?) historia (el 10.09.2017). Entre ellas: la postulación a una visa para vivir ... Read more >

Fishing Villages in Lan Ha Bay

VIETNAM | Sat, 17 Feb 2018 | By mirlingabroad | Views [359] | Comments [1]

What is the most different type of lifestyle you can imagine? I'm guessing that many people reading this post have a home in a city, either go to school or to work from 9 to 5, and buy their food in a grocery store. I know that until January 2018, I ... Read more >

An Oslo Stroll

NORWAY | Mon, 10 Dec 2018 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [58] | Comments [1]

For much of this trip I was dreading having to spend time in Oslo. The Norwegian capital just doesn't stand out the same way as London, Rome, or Vienna. People travel to France just to go to Paris and to the Netherlands to go to Amsterdam but you'd be ... Read more >

A Day At The Beach

USA | Sat, 12 Jan 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [28]

THERE IS SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE AT THE BEACH.  And the Fort Myers area has a number of beaches to choose from.  The most costly are, appropriately, located on Sanibel Island.  Beach access is actually free but a combination of the $6 ... Read more >

It Was A(nother) Very Good Year

USA | Tue, 1 Jan 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [49]

THE HOLIDAYS PASSED WITHOUT MUCH FANFARE.  And nary a flake of snow.  Except for a few golf carts decked out in lights blaring carols and some half-hearted fireworks, Christmas and New Year weren’t much different than any other day in ... Read more >

The Same Old Song

USA | Sun, 6 Jan 2019 | By vagabonds3 | Views [29]

EXCEPT TO THOSE WHO ARE WORKING WITHOUT PAY, the government shutdown is hardly noticeable here in Fort Myers.  It’s not like much work has been getting done recently anyway.  The Ding Darling National Wildlife Reserve on Sanibel Island, ... Read more >

Sushi, Craft Beer and Hungover Hikes

CANADA | Thu, 18 Jan 2018 | By mirlingabroad | Views [462]

Our first week away from home was an easy introduction to the backpacking year. We had friends and family put us up, take us out, and show us an incredible Canadian West Coast experience! Vancouver has a great bus system. We were able to travel ... Read more >

Travel by Motorbike in Vietnam

VIETNAM | Mon, 29 Jan 2018 | By mirlingabroad | Views [453]

I thought I was going to die today. Careening down the steep mountainside on the back of our rickety rented hostel motorbike, whipping around curve after curve of thin roadway hugging the cliffs, facing multiple moments of certain head-on destruction ... Read more >

Where the Runway Meets the Sea

MALDIVES | Wed, 28 Feb 2018 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [315]

After flying for hours over endless ocean, you spot a few atolls and sandbanks, and don't even see any presence of human habitation until about 15 seconds before the jumbo jet touches the runway. This isn't fantasy or a Robinson Crusoe-style castaway, ... Read more >

Tales from a Sleeper Bus

VIETNAM | Sat, 3 Feb 2018 | By mirlingabroad | Views [306]

 Riding the bus across Vietnam, there's a strange pattern, an ebb and flow. In my opinion, for travel to be worthwhile there needs to be enough time in a place to settle in, get to know the lay of the land, and have a couple of nights to get the ... Read more >

UNITED KINGDOM | Sun, 3 Jun 2018 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [224]

The weather was absolutely gorgeous today; not a cloud in the sky. I had the most difficult time sleeping due to another nuisance of a plant. Pennsylvania has poison ivy, yet Ireland has stinging nettles. During my miserable geocaching run yesterday ... Read more >

Howth Head

IRELAND | Thu, 31 May 2018 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [212]

It rhymes with "oath" and "growth." Dara, my CS host, suggested Howth Head after a long walk round Dublin yesterday as well as a good spot for flying Juliett. After a light brekkie and two cups of coffee, I was on the bus toward Howth. As in London and ... Read more >

The Emerald Isle

IRELAND | Wed, 30 May 2018 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [209]

What you see here is an emerald facade but here I am in the Land of Eire. Upon arriving in the Emerald Isle, I've come home to my motherland. My first photo is that of a door, and little did I know that the doors of Dublin are famous. Whilst ... Read more >

The Great Northern Light Chase

NORWAY | Tue, 4 Dec 2018 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [69]

After today I'll think twice about flying with Norwegian on a future trip to Norway. Though my flight wasn't until 12:30 PM, I was on the road at 7:30 AM after thanking Nina and Zeljko for their hospitality. Hønefoss is only about a 55-minute ... Read more >


NORWAY | Sun, 2 Dec 2018 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [67]

"Norway in December, you are a brave soul" -Sara Wall, fellow perpetual traveller About two months ago I had a dream: one where I was viewing the Northern Lights. As I woke up I thought "why have I not seen them?" Plenty of times I've thought of going ... Read more >

A Globetrotter in Harlem

USA | Fri, 30 Nov 2018 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [64]

Waking up in East Harlem, commonly called Spanish Harlem, I was ready to tackle my globetrotting spirit again. Walking through Manhattan you see how things change quickly. In Lower Manhattan you'll see guys with tailored suits and girls with designer ... Read more >

Dancing Lights!

SWEDEN | Fri, 7 Dec 2018 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [64]

Weeks ago I asked the Northern Lights on a date, and she accepted. However, she (the aurora) and the weather have both been, respectively, flaky and annoying. Three nights already I've been in the north of Scandinavia, and for three nights, no date with ... Read more >

Audubon Christmas Bird Count

USA | Sat, 15 Dec 2018 | By vagabonds3 | Views [30]

IF IT SEEMS LIKE WE ARE REPRISING the Winter of ’16, not only have you been following Vagabonds, you’ve been paying attention!  So it won’t come as a surprise that we are in Naples again.  We remember so much we could probably ... Read more >

Anzac Day Clash

AUSTRALIA | Wed, 25 Apr 2018 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [211]

It's Anzac Day, and I'd attend another event that a connoisseur of Australia should have on their radar: the Anzac Day Clash. The Essendon Bombers and Collingwood Magpies of the Australian Football League (AFL) play every year on Anzac Day, and is the ... Read more >

Die Reise auf der Nordinsel, Etappe: Paihia nach Auckland

NEW ZEALAND | Sun, 21 Jan 2018 | By domi_info | Views [210]

Tena koe! (Ich grüße dich!) Ich wollte etwas über meine Stationen schreiben, die ich nach meinem letzten Blogeintrag, wo ich Abenteuer in der Gegend um Paihia festhielt, erlebt habe. Die Idee mit dem Autokauf bekam ich schon in ... Read more >
