UNITED KINGDOM | Sun, 12 Oct 2014 | By kakimono | Views [319]

Although there are exceptions, the times that I procrastinate the worst aren't the times I hate the task I need to do. However little I might like the topic of a paper I need to write, it's easier to sit down with a coffee and stumble through a first ... Read more >

Kenyan Karibu

KENYA | Sun, 22 Dec 2013 | By butterfly-freed | Views [713]

I mentioned that Kenya was not on my original itinerary but what is a 20,000km detour when it provides the opportunity to return to your teenage homeland and spend the holiday season with friends who I count as my extended family. All that is missing ... Read more >

Chapters of my life

USA | Wed, 5 Jun 2013 | By fiddlegirl8 | Views [475]

I am now sitting on a train that will take me to NY, my final destination before I leave the states. This past week has been an interesting one; already I am realizing that self relization is going to be a theme for this trip. To make my next thoughts ... Read more >

Bali Magic

INDONESIA | Fri, 3 May 2013 | By paul_meet_world | Views [780]

Bali's kind of a magical place, I thought to myself as I hurtled at frightening speed down the motorway one night. This thought threatened to be edged out by the realization of how precarious my continued good health was. Flip-flops, shorts and a tank ... Read more >

10 Days to go!

CANADA | Sun, 17 Feb 2013 | By swinginggirl | Views [520]

“It’s an irritating reality that many places and events defy description. Angkor Wat and Machu Picchu, for instance, seem to demand silence, like a love affair you can never talk about. For a while after, you fumble for words, trying vainly ... Read more >

Photos: "Trapped" - Photo scholarship 2011 entry

PHILIPPINES | Mon, 7 Nov 2011 | By stalkerinstinct | Photo Gallery | Scholarship Entry

One of my most treasured memories was when my family and I visited a local zoo - aptly named, Manila Zoo - in which me and my father had a picture with a giraffe. Almost 20 years later, I came back there and saw that it has degraded a bit. The cages are ... Read more >

Hello. Goodbye. One Chat

MYANMAR | Fri, 10 Jun 2011 | By simon_monk | Views [3590]

The little girl must have been perhaps four years old, was wearing what looked suspiciously like an old sack converted into a dress with no underwear let alone shoes, and was rolling around the rusted deck of the old river ferry excitedly screaming ... Read more >

My Photo scholarship 2010 entry

BRAZIL | Sun, 17 Oct 2010 | By mauriciothomsen | Photo Gallery | Scholarship Entry

When I was a teenager and started learning – and loving – photography with my father, I've always said that my dream job would be to be a National Geographic's photographer. Really. Not a cop, a soccer player or an astronaut. I wanted to be a NatGeo ... Read more >

Life lived on the street

VIETNAM | Sun, 20 Apr 2008 | By simon_monk | Views [1503] | Video

Cantho and the nearby town of Soc Trang are the source of some of our strongest memories of the country: being turned away from every hotel because they just didn't have a policy on what to do with tourists who fronted up at the front desk; when we ... Read more >

Return to Saigon

VIETNAM | Mon, 14 Apr 2008 | By simon_monk | Views [1463]

We dozed in the back of the shagged out 1940's bus for sleep definitely wasn't possible. Rumble, bump, rattle, and thump, all night long. As the first rays of dawn glimmered outside, I mentally forced myself out of the slumber, as stretching definitely ... Read more >

Return to Shanghai

CHINA | Sat, 12 May 2007 | By simon_monk | Views [3613]

A quarter of a lifetime ago I stood on the Bund. As I gazed out from the shabby youth hostel in a grand old building right on the waterfront there was nothing but grey mud flats, swarms of bicycles, a handful of 'friendship stores' where the service ... Read more >

Once when I was a boy ...

AUSTRALIA | Tue, 13 Mar 2007 | By simon_monk | Views [3605] | Comments [1]

Once when I was a boy growing up in the south of England in the 1960's the hedgerows and gardens would support a wonderful butterfly every summer called a Red Admiral. I have no idea if this still exists or if it is now, sadly, almost extinct, but it ... Read more >

Then and now

VIETNAM | Tue, 10 Jan 2006 | By simon_monk | Views [1644] | Comments [2]

Inevitably returning after 15 years we are making comparisons. It's impossible to say better or worse; just that things have changed. Some things we miss, others we don't (definitely!) Probably the biggest single difference is the noise and pollution.... Read more >
