Killing Fields & S21

CAMBODIA | Wed, 5 Jul 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [225]

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 [466]

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 [393]

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 >

The Journey began with a dream of downsizing and living a simpler, more mobile life. What we loved most about our former home was our open living area!     One great little home was replaced by an even smaller, fabulous living ... Read more >

Learning to Love Laos

THAILAND | Sat, 8 Apr 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [644]

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 >

Beyond the "Wild Beauty"

MONTENEGRO | Sun, 8 Nov 2015 | By elcastleberry | Views [389]

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 >

Is it the middle of the semester already? Because that would explain the midterms.

FRANCE | Wed, 4 Nov 2015 | By kakimono | Views [247]

Intégration was dedicated to proving the Monotone Convergence Theorem. The previous week, he’d given us a statement of the theorem, but said we didn’t have the time to prove it just then. But, with the entirety of a two hour class ... Read more >

Tests and Reviews

FRANCE | Tue, 20 Oct 2015 | By kakimono | Views [243]

In Integration, we started looking at integrals. On the first day of class, the CM professor had explained that the point of the class was not to teach us to integrate better. Which is good, because if that had been the point, spending five weeks without ... Read more >

From Paris to Dijon

FRANCE | Mon, 14 Sep 2015 | By kakimono | Views [212]

Friday morning was rather lazy. I packed for the weekend, sorted through papers, and cleaned the apartment. After lunch, I headed to the university for my last "math" course of the week. Really, my only history class, since if it was a math course, ... Read more >

Amsterdam to Marken on two Wheels

NETHERLANDS | Wed, 27 May 2015 | By curiousme | Views [239]

I loooove cycling. That's probably the main reason why visiting Amsterdam with my partner has left a deep footprint in my memory. The landscape is flat and full of fairy tale-like gems - definitely one of the best places to explore on two wheels. ... Read more >

Georgetown- Day 5-6

MALAYSIA | Mon, 25 May 2015 | By emiliepb | Views [191]

We only spent one full day on Penang island which we spent in Georgetown. As soon as we arrived we noticed Georgetown is such a mishmash of different cultures and architecture, driving down a road you could believe you were in London.   ... Read more >

A busker caught our attention as we stopped for a cuppa outside the Pump Room of the Baths. Somehow Ian always gets invited to participate. He demonstrated his throwing skills with a flaming torch.: by tregenza_family, Views[171]
