SRI LANKA | Tue, 25 Aug 2015 | By lindsaylauren | Views [934]

SRI LANKA | Fri, 14 Aug 2015 | By lindsaylauren | Views [1063]

One morning in Kandy, we woke up very early – so early, the city’s many stray dogs were still sleeping, and the roads were not yet crowded with tuk tuks. We climbed into the van, and held on carefully to the containers of well-wrapped dishes ... Read more >

I missed being in Asia, having spent most of my recent travels on the other side of the ocean it was so nice to come back here. As soon as you land at the airport the humidity hits, the smells surround you and you find yourself in a completely different ... Read more >

Yesterday was eventful. After waking up a bit nauseas and with a headache I got to have a "western breakfast" that Fabian and Santiago made for us. But it still tasted Chinese because of the oil the locals have that they used to cook the eggs with. It ... Read more >

Captivatingly Spectacular Siem Reap

CAMBODIA | Thu, 26 May 2011 | By mpreece7 | Views [807]

Siem Reap has captivated me. I had a feeling it would, after all “OMG, I LOVED it there!” was a common response when I told other travelers where I was going. I can’t even tell you how long this quiet city has been on my MUST SEE list. I’m a sucker for ... Read more >

Punat, Croatia

CROATIA | Mon, 23 May 2011 | By cleolouise | Views [429]

      A two-headed pickled lamb floating in a mysteriously murky colored liquid and a traditionally-garbed monk, sitting blissfully in the shade, are certainly not sights one has the privilege of seeing everyday. However, in Punat, this is standard ... Read more >

Day 2 – Dec 5 2010 7.00 am – I didn’t sleep much, thanks to the dogs barking all night outside the hotel. It’s quite strange that you can see dogs almost everywhere around here. Anyway, a walk around the hotel shows me an interesting ... Read more >
