Cenotes, ruins by the beach and hippy vibes in Tulum

MEXICO | Mon, 22 Jun 2015 | By sheree | Views [562]

As soon as we arrived in Tulum, I breathed in deeply. It was a relief and I could tell I liked this place already! It had a real laid back, hippy vibe about the town and quite a few tourists/hippy travellers. We arrived in the morning and checked in ... Read more >

Ancient Athens

GREECE | Sun, 8 Jun 2014 | By goingsolo | Views [406] | Comments [2]

The touristy-part of Athens is scattered with ancient ruins and restaurants with all the mouth-watering foods that beg me to be a fatty: moussaka, stuffed vine leaves, stuffed tomatoes, gyros, baklava - and that’s only to name a few.  It ... Read more >

Clambering over ruins in Angkor (Siem Reap)

CAMBODIA | Sun, 23 Feb 2014 | By kpow | Views [544]

So, my original plan was Cambodia for maybe a week, tops, I pretty much just planned to hit the Angkor Temples and then pass on through. Well… I got a bit stuck. In a good way! Mostly. It didn’t start out great, honestly. My first meal in ... Read more >

Saturday, Sunday, Southwark

UNITED KINGDOM | Tue, 21 Jan 2014 | By cfleisch10 | Views [567]

I haven't been updating because, clearly, I have been spending every free minute walking aimlessly around London. Well, not aimlessly. I always start out with a plan! Take this Saturday, for instance. I took the tube to Southwark, down along the Thames ... Read more >

Salute to Christchurch

NEW ZEALAND | Sat, 18 May 2013 | By butterfly-freed | Views [797]

It is alleged that I brought the rain with me when I arrived in Christchurch. In fact it is only drizzle and, genuinely, I do not need it to feel at home! The striking thing about landing in Christchurch is noticing how completely flat the land is ... Read more >

GUATEMALA | Fri, 17 Feb 2012 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [1672]

Dark it was with the moon shining as I awoke at 4:30 AM to set out toward Tikal. I didn't need much: just my passport, money for admission and food, and my camera, and I was out the door. With a rock in hand (to ward off dogs) I hoped for some quick ... Read more >

Hello Honduras

HONDURAS | Fri, 6 Jan 2012 | By doodledawn | Views [959]

After a lengthy stay in Rio Dulce, Guatemala, I decided it was time to move on so I tagged along with a Toronto couple to Copan, Honduras.  With border formalities, it took about 8 hours.  Copan is only 10km into Honduras, but I definitely feel a different ... Read more >

Tikal, Guatemala

GUATEMALA | Wed, 4 Jan 2012 | By kirstykay | Views [405]

Simply Amazing. We camped in the grounds of one of the 3 hotels there and somehow ended up in bed by about 9.30.  We went on a rather unsuccessful jungle walk in the afternoon once we'd arrived on the first day - climbing the rickety Mirador lookout ... Read more >

Angkor Wat -- July 2008

USA | Sun, 7 Aug 2011 | By patdev | Views [1392]

Rounding the corner amid a tangle of motorbikes, tour buses, taxis, tuk-tuks, dogs, elephants and pony carts, I suppressed a sob as I saw the first towers of Angkor Wat. As a professed New World ruins freak, seeing Cambodia's 12th-century ... Read more >
