By way of Ferry

UNITED KINGDOM | Thu, 5 Apr 2018 | By shire_girl | Views [369]

From a lovely attic bedroom in Lochranza I overlooked the harbor with the lights glimmering out from the houses across the water at night, and the old castle somewhere down on the spit of land in the middle. To reach the Isle of Arran you must take about ... Read more >

A Long Drive?

FRANCE | Sat, 23 Jul 2016 | By john_and_lynne | Views [304]

How far can you drive in one trip? What is a same distance of time to have behind the wheel? I guess everyone is different. Friends of mine have had enough after a few hours. Others consider a trip across a continent as fair play.  What is the ... Read more >

Channel Ports - Which is best?

FRANCE | Sat, 23 Jul 2016 | By john_and_lynne | Views [273]

I’m going to be clever this time. The blog is not going to catch me out and delete my story as it has done twice before. The first time it disappeared I was editing my existing blog but the save was not saved. The second time I thought I had ... Read more >

On the hunt for Chivitos in Uruguay

UNITED KINGDOM | Sun, 26 Jun 2016 | By dancinnadz | Views [545]

Arriving in Uruguay was a stark contrast from Buenos Aires considering it's only 1 hour by ferry. It's a very green place with lots of farmland and reminded me much of home, seeming like a world away from the hectic, dirty city we had just left. The ... Read more >

Yvoire, France

FRANCE | Sun, 6 Sep 2015 | By elcastleberry | Views [384]

Last night, as I strolled through Lausanne with Sarina, Craig and Baby Malia, I felt the blissful, sudden on-set of euphoria that always appears shortly after I begin a new adventure. These moments are precious: the early stages of travel when bonds ... Read more >

New York the hotel-less way

USA | Tue, 23 Jun 2015 | By los4words | Views [433]

I’d not been to New York before and wondered how it could outdo Chicago for the drama of its urban landscape. Well (and mercifully), Chicago didn’t have a Ground Zero to give it the edge. Expect more hustle and bustle, noise and crowds ... Read more >

On the Elbe

GERMANY | Sat, 11 Oct 2014 | By schmodude | Views [367]

In the morning I found Simon and Sarah still awake and watching Sons of Anarchy in the other room.  I’ve decided young Germans do not sleep on the weekends. It was time for me to make American breakfast for the apartment, so Simon and I took ... Read more >

Ferries, Busses, Kayaks, and Campervans

NEW ZEALAND | Tue, 11 Feb 2014 | By elizabethkfmurphy | Views [539]

I think that moving between islands in New Zealand should be done the classic way, by ferry. We didn't even look in to flights because why not take the ferry? (I'm sure there are many good reasons based on how you are planning your trip, but it worked ... Read more >

Hawkes Bay

NEW ZEALAND | Sun, 21 Jul 2013 | By hannahhackett | Views [503]

We had planned a leisurely drive up to Hawkes Bay from the ferry but as it ended up leaving Picton about 3 hours late we didn’t get into Wellington and get the car unloaded until after 4:30pm.  At least we did get to see the Marlborough Sounds ... Read more >

New Zealand - A Land of Two Halves

NEW ZEALAND | Sun, 2 Jun 2013 | By butterfly-freed | Views [967]

I examine my expectations of New Zealand and find that I had envisaged seeing a few pretty sights and that just over 3 weeks would probably be more than sufficient time to do so. I couldn’t have been more wrong and I am ashamed by the almost flippant ... Read more >

Goodbye Malaysia!

MALAYSIA | Tue, 19 Feb 2013 | By nnninecountries | Views [707]

The last time I wrote, we were on our way to the bus station to catch a bus to Penang in the north of Malaysia. It turned out to be way easier said than done. When we got to the bus station, we went down to the terminals below the station to wait for ... Read more >

We arrived in Savannakhet, Laos in the evening. The air was warm and sticky. The people were friendly and helpful. After a week in Vietnam, Laos felt like a vacation from a vacation. In many parts of Laos there is no use in haggling and the ... Read more >

The morning is a bit hectic as I don't have an advance ticket to Penang and didn't set the alarm clock. It's 9.30 before I get to main bus station in Alor Setar and felt fortunate to be ushered onto the bus to Penang just as it was literally leaving.... Read more >
