Coffee Tales

CYPRUS | Thu, 23 Mar 2017 | By charis | Views [667]

Not surprisingly, even the coffee in Cyprus has an identity crisis. Depending on where you sit on the island, you will be expected to say either Cypriot coffee or Turkish coffee to mean the same thing. [The citizens of Greece call it Greek coffee, ... Read more >

Spring break in Ireland

IRELAND | Wed, 11 May 2016 | By ruthygirl | Views [351]

So, I decided to go to Ireland for spring break and use up some airline miles. I had no idea what to expect but it was always one of those places that I wanted to visit so I took the advantage and went for spring break. I flew to Dublin Ireland for spring ... Read more >

Ferries and Shinkanesen, Everyone's Favorite Modes of Transportation

JAPAN | Thu, 21 Apr 2016 | By kakimono | Views [585]

Sunday morning, Rachel and I planned to catch ferry to Nokonomishma. This required catching a train, then either a bus or a ten minute walk, buying ferry tickets, and getting on the ferry. Which wasn’t all that complicated until the last step.... Read more >

On the Way to Kyushu

JAPAN | Wed, 6 Apr 2016 | By kakimono | Views [596]

“I want to go to Kyushu,” I heard myself say while video chatting with my parents. It was a weird thing for me to say. Like someone in Chicago saying “I want to go to Minnesota.” There’s nothing wrong with Minnesota, it’... Read more >

Tests, Plums, and Cats

JAPAN | Mon, 28 Mar 2016 | By kakimono | Views [428]

On Wednesday my religion and culture class was cancelled, which should have made the day seem shorter and better by comparison. It didn't. In part this was because we had our second Japanese test, immediately followed by two hours of project work.... Read more >

This Seems Like It Should Explain Something

JAPAN | Fri, 11 Mar 2016 | By kakimono | Views [589]

On Wednesday, I was exposed to several small but very odd things about Japanese culture. First of all, we were practicing new kanji. One of those kanji was the character for rice, which, for whatever reason, is also the character for America. So ... Read more >

The End of a Week

JAPAN | Sun, 6 Mar 2016 | By kakimono | Views [393]

We did have classes on Friday, which was a disturbing change of events after two consecutive three-day weekends. And, because we'd taken the test the day before, we were already well on our way to a new chapter. Complete with new grammars, new vocabulary, ... Read more >

A Day in the Life

JAPAN | Tue, 1 Mar 2016 | By kakimono | Views [338]

By Monday, it had become increasingly clear that we had settled into the pace of the class. Which is to say we were moving very quickly. To get some idea of that, consider our homework for Monday (and, per CET policy, homework assigned over the ... Read more >

Mondial Kaffee Revisited

JAPAN | Sun, 28 Feb 2016 | By kakimono | Views [347]

It was once again a warm but rainy Saturday, and Mondial Kaffee was already on my mind. So I decided to head out. As before, I didn’t have any difficulties getting on a train that brought me directly to the nearest train station. And from ... Read more >

Osaka Castle Park

JAPAN | Sat, 27 Feb 2016 | By kakimono | Views [506]

Last Monday, Yamaguchi-sensei had asked what we’d done over the weekend, and had been disappointed when none of us responded “I went to Osaka Castle!” Apparently the plum blossoms are supposed to be particularly beautiful this time ... Read more >

Mondial Kaffee (They're worldly because that have two different languages in their name)

JAPAN | Sat, 20 Feb 2016 | By kakimono | Views [449]

Saturday was another fake-spring day. I'm not sure if there's a real word for this, but it seems like there should be, because it's a phenomenon I'm very families with. In early March, or February, or sometimes even January, the weather will suddenly ... Read more >

Café Hunting

JAPAN | Fri, 19 Feb 2016 | By kakimono | Views [385]

We had a four day weekend starting on Thursday, which probably would have made for a decent reason to leave Osaka and go somewhere. Except that I didn't really want to leave, and I did have a lot of work to get done. So I just stayed in the vicinity ... Read more >

Hosts and Families

FRANCE | Tue, 15 Sep 2015 | By kakimono | Views [327]

After getting up on Saturday, Laure gave me a mission: to go to the bakery and pick up the viennoiseries she'd ordered. To help me with this mission, she drew me a map. Her theory with giving me this mission was that out would allow me to ... Read more >

Culinary and museum tours

TURKEY | Mon, 6 Apr 2015 | By gnome-san | Views [450]

The food of Istanbul is as varied as the sites: friendly pastry chefs with piles of sweets on a tray, spices in colorful display, coffee strongly brewed over charcoal on the street, dried fruits by the 100grams, Easter egg displays in the candy shop ... Read more >

Living life like a re-run.

AUSTRALIA | Mon, 12 Jan 2015 | By homeless_harry | Views [865]

December 31 st 2014 8:36pm. Such an unusual time to remember that I have an avid audience starved of my wordy goodness, (citation needed). And while the actual goodness of my ramblings is very much open to debate, there is no doubting that I have a ... Read more >

Rakija in Zagreb

CROATIA | Sun, 5 Oct 2014 | By schmodude | Views [611]

Cameron was feeling little better in the morning and all three of use went back to the same square. There was an antique market happening because it was Sunday. So many vendors were selling things related to the rocky history of Croatia. It was a fun ... Read more >

Exploring Zagreb

CROATIA | Sat, 4 Oct 2014 | By schmodude | Views [486]

I had ordered breakfast for my first morning at the hostel when I checked in. For it I got to try two HUGE Croatia spiral meat or veggie pie things called Börek. They were both great, but I could only eat one. I had to wake up a little early in ... Read more >

Vietnam - Hue

VIETNAM | Mon, 29 Sep 2014 | By megandrob | Views [369]

We arrived in Hue at around 4pm on Saturday, and headed off to our hostel. We got showered, and headed out for a couple of drinks at a bar, called Brown Eyes (Robin was giggling), near our hostel. They had the friendliest bar staff I have ever met, ... Read more >

Old Town Stockholm

SWEDEN | Tue, 9 Sep 2014 | By schmodude | Views [378]

I was thinking of joining the bicycle tour given by the hostel in the morning, but all the spots were booked by the time I checked. Instead I went to the Old Town borough of the city and did some exploring. It is a nice section of the city but very tourist ... Read more >
