SPAIN | Thu, 22 Jun 2017 | By guild_family_of_3 | Views [955]

The People We Met We had plenty of neighbors in Vera, but we only ever met one of our neighbors in our own apartment building (not counting the occasional “Hola” as you pass by in the halls). He was an older gentleman named Carlo who lived ... Read more >

Vibhuti - Cow Dung Initiation

INDIA | Fri, 5 Aug 2016 | By butterfly-freed | Views [938]

The time has come to step outside of what feels comfortable. Life in the retreat is a very sanitised version of what lies outside, but we're pretty comfortable with that. However, We came to see India and are not going to do that unless we get the local ... Read more >

Welcome to Marrakech, the Red City of European, African and Arabic Roots

UNITED ARAB EMIRATES | Tue, 21 Jun 2016 | By zeetravels | Views [444]

If you put aside the throngs of tourists with their selfie sticks in the old district of Marrakech, you could be forgiven for thinking that you’ve travelled back in time. Old men in their traditional garbs, women sporting Berber-inspired jewellery ... Read more >

Pens vs. Clothes: which is really more necessary?

JAPAN | Sat, 6 Feb 2016 | By kakimono | Views [337]

Saturday, I caught a train to Umeda for lunch and some probably-needed clothes shopping. Even though I could have sworn I'd exited the train part the same way I had last week, I emerged somewhere completely different. Which kind of ruined my plan of ... Read more >

Not Facing Mount Kanchenjunga

INDIA | Wed, 23 Dec 2015 | By davidford | Views [379]

Today I asked Kamal, the caretaker at Deki Lodge, where Mount Kanchenjunga lay. Not to my surprise he pointed behind me. So it seems that, unlike the title of one of Sangharakshita's memoirs, I am backing on to Mount Kanchenjunga of which I have only ... Read more >

Between France and Germany

AUSTRIA | Mon, 30 Nov 2015 | By kakimono | Views [486]

I'd booked my flight to Vienna knowing that a 7:10 flight would involve leaving my apartment extremely early. I hadn't known what would happen one week before I left. So I was waking up Saturday before I'd gone to sleep the week before. It had been ... Read more >

Mondays, Mondays

FRANCE | Thu, 17 Sep 2015 | By kakimono | Views [385]

Since I’d designed my schedule to not have classes on Monday, I didn’t have anything I needed to do when I woke up in my own apartment the next morning. So I decided to finally get around to something I’d been meaning to do for a while:... Read more >

A Saturday to call my own

FRANCE | Wed, 9 Sep 2015 | By kakimono | Views [379]

There was absolutely nothing I had to do on Saturday. No group activities or meetings with my landlady. No apartments to visit or courses to register for. Not even any homework, since the course with Christine had ended and the regular university classes ... Read more >

15th Day in China: Bad Air, Good Day

CHINA | Mon, 20 Apr 2015 | By chinaho | Views [349]

The day begins with the bad air headache, windows closed, yet a good sleep. It is obvious that people here have accommodated the shifting quality of the air they breathe, just as they accommodate the smell of sewage, the new towering buildings and disintegrating ... Read more >

The Art of the Sale

INDIA | Wed, 15 Apr 2015 | By lucitravels | Views [444]

There is a dance in India that is done in shops every single day. It’s the perpetual dance between the seller and the buyer, otherwise known as the ever-frustrating barter. India, I’m on to you. Being a white, American shopper in this ... Read more >

Singapore: A Vacation from My Vacation.

SINGAPORE | Mon, 16 Mar 2015 | By wtarmstrong | Views [533]

I’d love to tell you many interesting facts and anecdotes about Singapore, but I can’t. The stop in Singapore was not about Singapore, per se. It was about a break from Southeast Asian grit. Laundry. Shopping. Photo editing. Writing. Travel ... Read more >

A day that epitomises why I travel.

TURKEY | Tue, 17 Feb 2015 | By homeless_harry | Views [809] | Comments [1]

Judging Istabul by Istiklal street is like going to the Taj Mahal and judging it by the garden out the front. I may have been a bit too premature with my praise for Istanbul, literally, but after a couple of days in Sultanahment, I don't think my approbation ... Read more >

THAILAND | Mon, 3 Nov 2014 | By dinagosse | Views [490]

Ok!  Let's get caught up. Halloween found us bound for Chiang Mai on the overnight train.  Train #13, as it turned out, which we thought was pretty cool for the holiday. I wore a string of light-up pumpkin beads for my costume. We got to the ... Read more >

Thailand - Bangkok, Ayutthaya and Sukhothai

THAILAND | Fri, 24 Oct 2014 | By megandrob | Views [395]

After an uneventful flight and taxi ride we arrived in Bangkok. Our hostel was a bit grubby but the location was excellent and we have no real complaints. We were only 30 seconds from Khao San Road so we wandered onto the strip to see what was happening.... Read more >

Packing up a bag

USA | Wed, 13 Aug 2014 | By schmodude | Views [363]

Today I finished my packing list and went out to buy a few missing items. As it turned out, I don’t need much to survive. Most days my bags are full of textbooks for school or documents for work. It was refreshing to prep a bag and leave space ... Read more >

On My Own

MOROCCO | Wed, 30 Jul 2014 | By kakimono | Views [451]

I still had some last-minute shopping I needed to do. At this point, it was only a couple specific things that didn't match the couple of specific things that other people needed. So I decided to test myself and go shopping in the Mdina alone. The ... Read more >
