Slovenia - Ljubljana Culture

SLOVENIA | Fri, 4 Aug 2017 | By guild_family_of_3 | Views [55]

Slovenia was a different experience for us because this was the first leg of our journey where we didn’t have a car. Because of that almost all of our experience in Slovenia was in Ljubljana. And that’s ok! Wow, what a city. Natural beauty, ... Read more >

Awaji-Shima. Small Island - Big Dreams.

JAPAN | Mon, 17 Jul 2017 | By lan | Views [222] | Comments [1]

“Culture hides more than it reveals, and strangely enough what it hides, it hides most effectively from its own participants.” Edward T. Hall. I have never been quite content to travel to a destination, take a snap shot and leave with ... Read more >

Family Time in South Korea

SOUTH KOREA | Mon, 10 Jul 2017 | By sorkoo | Views [114]

Our trip to South Korea was all about seeing the family. This was a special treat for me as it would be the first time I met any of Danny's extended family. Over our 10 days in Korea we would stay at the home of Danny's Uncle who he shares with his ... Read more >

Killing Fields & S21

CAMBODIA | Wed, 5 Jul 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [59]

The main 'tourist attractions' in Phnom Penh are known as the Killing Fields and S21 Prison. No matter how tough you think these places will be, they are worse. It's barely worth me explaining as it won't give you an understanding of the depth of these ... Read more >

Propaganda, Palaces and Poverty

VIETNAM | Fri, 28 Apr 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [98]

Before our next bus adventure we had one more day to spend in Hanoi. We had heard of a Military museum so we decided to head there. The walk there was quite a long one and on the way the traffic was as bonkers as ever. The worst thing about it is the ... Read more >

Celebration of Women and War

VIETNAM | Fri, 28 Apr 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [64]

A lot of the sights in Hanoi you can see just walking around the city. The traffic alone is a sight in itself, the real hustle and bustle draws you in and it's unnerving how quickly you become a part of it. A few days ago the need to cross a road had ... Read more >

Learning to Love Laos

THAILAND | Sat, 8 Apr 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [191]

I would never tell someone not to visit a place, but Vientiane isn't somewhere we see ourselves visiting again. It's beautiful, full of South East Asian/French culture and some lovely things to see, but it's not as welcoming as other places we have visited.... Read more >

Long journeys, Borders and Culture Shocks

LAOS | Mon, 3 Apr 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [302]

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 >

Impressive temples & Buddhist blessings

THAILAND | Thu, 16 Mar 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [138]

As I told you in an earlier blog post, inside the wall in Chiang Mai is full of temples, lots and lots of temples. So we made a day out of exploring them. The Temples or Wat's, all require modest dress so shoulders must be covered, nothing with a low ... Read more >

Romance and Ping Pong balls

THAILAND | Sun, 12 Feb 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [204]

It all began on Monday. What should of been an early night to be rested for travel, turned into an all nighter, packing and panicking. The nerves had official set in. Early hours Tuesday morning we packed our bags into the car and after a few teary ... Read more >

If you've never been to the  Italy's south autonomous region , you might want to make it your next stop. Sicily is one of my favourite destinations of all times, since it's the place where throughout the history, civilizations and cultures have ... Read more >

Touristing in Toledo and Segovia, Spain

SPAIN | Wed, 21 Sep 2016 | By kurenai | Views [169]

Spain has been a fascinating city to explore – which is good because my flight to Madrid from the US was so late that I missed my separately ticketed flight to London, much to my dismay and my wallet! This led me to have more days in and around ... Read more >

Less than one month from departure

VIETNAM | Sun, 21 Aug 2016 | By lazimmerman | Views [159]

I have less than 1 month to go before traveling to Vietnam to help with a Food Outreach Program through IVHQ and local organization Green Lion in Ho Chi Minh City. It still sounds crazy when I say it out loud or put it in writing but I think I want ... Read more >

Cyprus

CYPRUS | Fri, 15 Apr 2016 | By iain_and_tamara | Views [583] | Comments [1]

If there is a land that I have been exposed to most without ever having visited it must be the tormented paradise of Cyprus. Tamara is one quarter Cypriot and her Yaya (Greek for grandmother) is a passionate full blooded Cypriot. In addition my cousin-... Read more >

This Seems Like It Should Explain Something

JAPAN | Fri, 11 Mar 2016 | By kakimono | Views [226]

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 >

Britishisms

UNITED KINGDOM | Thu, 11 Feb 2016 | By wanderlustgail | Views [295]

England does not feel very strange to me, maybe because I've been there a few times before, or because of our shared cultural roots, or because of our common language. In cultures that feel different, and especially when you do not speak the language, ... Read more >

Varanasi

INDIA | Sat, 26 Dec 2015 | By elcastleberry | Views [131]

   Our boat was surrounded by others just like it: rickety, in a word, with peeling paint and shoddily assembled wooden planks. I could feel my whiteness in the empty space between us and our boatman, where the other boats were packed to the ... Read more >

Delhi

INDIA | Mon, 21 Dec 2015 | By elcastleberry | Views [169]

The chaos of the developing world, all of its stark contrast, reigns here. A child's grimy hand tugs my skirt. I hear the tap-tap-tap of a woman's fingernail on the taxi window, and turn to see her kissing gathered fingers to her mouth in a begging gesture, ... Read more >

Beyond the "Wild Beauty"

MONTENEGRO | Sun, 8 Nov 2015 | By elcastleberry | Views [239]

It felt unbalanced to post about Montenegro's glorious natural spaces without mentioning my experience with the cuisine, people and history, as these factors shape a place as much as geography, if not more. It's worth mentioning the powerful factor ... Read more >
