Fluffy snow flakes drift past my face. The cool weather chilling my toes. I'm not dressed for this New England winter weather. Wearing a black Blink-182 hoodie, tan tech pants and flip flops, perhaps some boots or a puffy winter coat would have been ... Read more >

CANADA | Sat, 28 Mar 2009 | By aliciav | Views [439]

The flight was long and pretty uncomfortable. The only good thing was the food on Thai Airlines.. It puts Air Canada to shame. So we are finally at our hotel. There is particularly funky smell in this neighbourhood... it must be all the tourists. They ... Read more >

Day 0 - Zurich Airport layover - One of the smoothest landings ever got me into Europe, officially. Inside the airport, I enjoyed a bullet train shuttle that had cowbells and mooing sounds playing of the loudspeaker. A Swiss Miss milk maid smiled ... Read more >
