Lazy Borders & Livestock

VIETNAM | Sat, 10 Jun 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [514]

Ho Chi Minh also has a Military Museum (lots of places in Vietnam have them and we visited one in Hanoi.) We decided to check it out after being dropped off from the tunnels, and with an entrance fee of 50p each it was worth a look. It started very ... Read more >

Cold Cabbage Soup & Crazy Bus Drivers

VIETNAM | Thu, 8 Jun 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [547]

The next morning we checked into our next hotel. We only had one night here. And thank God! The place was awful. It had damp on 3 of the walls, you could see the mould patches. You could even smell the damp the second you walked through the door. Thankfully ... Read more >

Long journeys, Borders and Culture Shocks

LAOS | Mon, 3 Apr 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [704]

We boarded the bus and were shown to the top deck and taken to our seats. The seats were pretty huge. They were about a seat and a half of a regular coach seat, if not wider, they reclined to about a 45 degree angle and had a foot rest that came up as ... Read more >

Assisi & Perugia

ITALY | Sat, 10 Jan 2015 | By crobbins | Views [446] | Comments [1]

Today was long day! Ooofda! We woke up very early to get ready for our day. We grabbed some breakfast and headed for the bus stop. We missed the #62 by like 5 seconds, the #60 didn't come, and so we just took the next #62. At least we had left ... Read more >

Yo soy Iron Man

COLOMBIA | Thu, 8 Jan 2015 | By peacepigs | Views [355]

Alas, the bus ride from Medellin to Armenia (large city closest to Salento, our destination) was much better. First of all, the movie of choice was Iron Man 3, which was entertaining even in badly dubbed Spanish.    The ride wasn't ... Read more >

Bus to Jiri

NEPAL | Mon, 30 Sep 2013 | By joannawong | Views [2508]

Altitude: 1951m We woke up early today to catch the bus to Jiri where we'll start our trekking adventure to Everest Base Camp. We're doing it a little different to most who usually just fly into Lukla and start the trek from there. We're walking in ... Read more >

Koh Phi Phi and The Beach

THAILAND | Tue, 27 Aug 2013 | By rutha90 | Views [1332]

Well since I last wrote, my closest friend out here (Julia) has left, which has been pretty tough. She travelled to Bangkok with Kat and I, when I went to meet Sophie, and we had a night out in Bangkok. The next morning (after only about a forty minute ... Read more >

Issues, Issues and More Issues

UNITED KINGDOM | Fri, 23 Aug 2013 | By joannawong | Views [466]

Considering I did an excellent job with catching trains in Europe, I'm having an awful time with the transport in the UK. It's not that it's substandard and terrible here - it's just that I seem to have a running streak of issues. First, there was ... Read more >

A Pleasant Day in Provence

FRANCE | Wed, 12 Jun 2013 | By joannawong | Views [533]

I had a fabulous afternoon. After a nice sleep in today, I walked into the city centre to catch a bus to St. Remy de Provence. After doing some research last night and the long day I had, I decided against my original plan of seeing Aix-en-Provence, ... Read more >

Visiting Iguazu and Beyond

BRAZIL | Tue, 30 Apr 2013 | By joannawong | Views [651]

The Iguazu falls were a spectacle to behold from both sides. Unbelievable in every regard - huge, plenty and powerful - perfectly framed with rainbows and butterflies. It was just as you would picture paradise to be. It reminded me so much of my favourite ... Read more >

Living La Vida Boca

ARGENTINA | Thu, 25 Apr 2013 | By joannawong | Views [1008]

I'm on my way to Iguazu on a 17 hour bus with Via Bariloche. Sitting in a cama seat is like business class on a bus. Leaving Buenos Aires was difficult. I made a wise choice picking Federico's home on AirBnB. Not only was I blown away by his very ... Read more >

Taxes, buses and PB & J!

CANADA | Sun, 11 Mar 2012 | By jamesshanks | Views [808] | Comments [1]

These are three things that have found their way into my daily activities, without fail! Every day before I head out, I make a peanut butter and jam sandwich. They are super delicious and what I would consider a staple food group for any backpacker.... Read more >

So, I decided to take the scenic route from Saigon to Bangkok. I always wanted to sail along the Mekong from Vietnam to Cambodia, and see the locals’ daily life unfold before my eyes. I decided on the 3 day, 2 night tour from Saigon to Phnom Penh. From ... Read more >

Vinh - Welcome to Vietnam

VIETNAM | Thu, 19 Feb 2009 | By jciecko | Views [820]

After 11 hours on a bus, we made it to our first stop in Vietnam. The border crossing was a breeze and the scenery coming down from the mountains was as beautiful as expected. Compared to Laos, Vietnam is loud, fast-paced, and aggressive. The change ... Read more >

THAILAND | Fri, 9 Jan 2009 | By jciecko | Views [1117]

It took 2 buses, 4 taxis, a boat, and 20 hours for us to travel from Chiang Mai to our last destination in Thailand - Koh Chang. It probably wasn't the best of itinerary choices, but we were committed thanks to our Bangkok travel agent. Fortunately ... Read more >
