Lyon, France

FRANCE | Tue, 22 Sep 2015 | By elcastleberry | Views [126]

 Lyon was not a city on my (long) list of travel destinations. Were it not for the easy, cheap train from Rolle coupled with the easy, cheap flight from Madrid for Chris, I doubt I ever would have found myself here. In looking for a place to meet ... Read more >

Tango in the colourful streets of Buenos Aires

ARGENTINA | Fri, 11 Sep 2015 | By sheree | Views [269]

The worst part about arriving in a new city or place is figuring out where the hell you are and how to get to your hostel. It always calls for a little tension between Matt and I, trying to figure out directions and maps, trying to speak Spanish to locals ... Read more >

SPAIN | Wed, 25 Feb 2015 | By homeless_harry | Views [380] | Comments [1]

Something itched under my armpit. Before I knew it, there was a strange sensation of moisture on my skin. It was sweat, something my body had forgotten how to do. It's not like I had returned to Broome where sweating is as normal, and as necessary as ... Read more >

Out with a Bang

THAILAND | Mon, 9 Feb 2015 | By mtmmeyer | Views [240]
