New Zealand - South Island Part 3

NEW ZEALAND | Sun, 16 Apr 2017 | By guild_family_of_3 | Views [693]

THE FOOD I won’t say it’s quite the same as Europe, but Kiwis eat out a lot. They probably have more cafés per square km than Alaska has coffee shops. New Zealand also has a much greater Asian influence than I realized before our ... Read more >

Vanilla Manilla

PHILIPPINES | Mon, 5 May 2014 | By goingsolo | Views [419]

Manilla is a strange place. Admittedly, I only ventured outside the city once to a place called Tagatay, which had amazing views and an even more amazing zip-line you could ride to take full advantage of the views. What a rush. Perhaps if I had ventured ... Read more >

USA | Tue, 13 Mar 2012 | By connectlocally | Views [4718]

One of the first things you notice about New York City is that it’s incredibly diverse- bafflingly so - but no one ethnic group stands out. There are a lot of people and a lot of types of people, all packed in together within a few square miles. The ... Read more >
