VIETNAM | Thu, 8 Jun 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [533]

VIETNAM | Wed, 7 Jun 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [854]

After 2 fantastic nights in the amazing hotel we really didn't want to leave. It was so comfortable, a little home from home luxury. But we had to move. We had a flight booked from Hue to Da Lat. The hotel provided an airport transfer and off we went.... Read more >

DAY 1. Top Bunk Sleeper

NEW ZEALAND | Thu, 27 Oct 2016 | By joyaroundtheworld | Views [643]

Finally departed LA after a frustrating but fortunate overnight layover. The flight to Fiji was long and hard to sleep through. Fiji was cloudy but humid and adorned a small, rundown airport. Grabbed a coffee and waited a few hours for the next flight.... Read more >

SPAIN | Sun, 31 Jan 2016 | By wanderlustgail | Views [643]

Flight from hell before the hostel from hell - Cancun stopover

MEXICO | Mon, 22 Jun 2015 | By sheree | Views [471]

I'm not the greatest on planes, usually slightly nervous before boarding and in the air but this flight I had reason to. It was an hour flight from Havana to Cancun and it ended up taking double that time. I like to have the window seat so I can see ... Read more >

Down Boy-the Sequel

SPAIN | Sun, 7 Jun 2015 | By davidpearlman | Views [470]

I returned to the hostel at about  1:15 last night-I was tired and looking forward to going to bed. My only concern is there used to be a top blanket which now was missing. I have no idea where it went-not that I needed it-again it is in the 90's ... Read more >

UNITED KINGDOM | Sun, 24 May 2015 | By davidpearlman | Views [613] | Comments [2]

I just checked out of my 4th hostel. In this one I  shared a room with 15 others. If you remember my first hostel post, I just about pledged I would never stay in another one. I was disgusted by the smells, the snoors, the everything about sharing ... Read more >

FIJI | Mon, 20 Jan 2014 | By elizabethkfmurphy | Views [519]

Day Two of Fiji was so much fun. Angela, Stacey and I had a market day. We took a bus into Nadi, which was really nice. The bus was pretty busted up but the roads are nicely paved so it's smooth and very open. Oh by the way Angela and Stacey are my dorm ... Read more >
