VIETNAM | Thu, 8 Jun 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [536]

The next morning we checked into our next hotel. We only had one night here. And thank God! The place was awful. It had damp on 3 of the walls, you could see the mould patches. You could even smell the damp the second you walked through the door. Thankfully ... Read more >

BRAZIL | Mon, 21 Sep 2015 | By sheree | Views [1553]

I don't think it's matters how long the bus ride is for if its a good ride or not, I think it matters if its comfy or not. It was a shorter ride from Iguazu to Florianopolis than BA to Iguazu but so much worse because our seats didn't recline all the ... Read more >

Getting some sort of lovin' from Indonesia

INDONESIA | Fri, 30 Jan 2015 | By homeless_harry | Views [623]

For a place that sells non-alcoholic Guinness, Jakarta isn't too bad a city. Zero ABV stout is a grave insult to all I hold dear but if a place didn't have quirks, even offensive ones, there would be no reason to leave home at all. Being the size it ... Read more >

We had to wake up early and take some trains to the west side of Berlin. Our bus was departing from the central bus station to bring us to Oktoberfest. The ride was pretty awful. Bad traffic made for over a 9 hour bus ride to Munich. Matt and I went ... Read more >

UNITED KINGDOM | Mon, 25 Aug 2014 | By schmodude | Views [354]

Vancouver a city to make you wet!

CANADA | Thu, 3 Oct 2013 | By farawayfromhome | Views [430]

We decided to man up and embrace the miserable overcast weather and see the city. With wrong one turn we ended up through Chinatown into the derelict/homeless part of town. On the bright side weed seems pretty cheap at $5 a quarter. Any takers? I can ... Read more >
