The Road To Mandalay

MYANMAR | Mon, 23 Mar 2015 | By langkawi21 | Views [435] | Comments [2]

Myanmar (aka Burma) Minglabah. Neither of us really knew what to expect here and maybe we picked the wrong month to visit. Myanmar was hot, incredibly hot at 38C, it was dusty, so dusty and a smoky haze lay over the country the whole time we were ... Read more >

Bangkok Blues

THAILAND | Tue, 14 May 2013 | By paul_meet_world | Views [282]

I love Alaska!

USA | Tue, 5 Mar 2013 | By joannawong | Views [453]

I'll say it loud and proud, I love Alaska! Only 3% of tourists coming to Alaska make it into the Artic Circle and of that, an unknown but suspiciously small percentage bother to come during winter. I am in that very minority group and am happy where ... Read more >

Throat Trouble

USA | Thu, 20 Aug 2009 | By godohell | Views [427]

I realized how much of an innuendo my title was as I was typing it out. Then I realized that my throat still fucking hurts and I don't give a shit. I went to the Urgent Care. I figured if it was strep, I should take care of it *before* I get on the ... Read more >

The start of something small

AUSTRALIA | Fri, 22 Aug 2008 | By erinoc | Views [475]

I've been home (yes, home) and have had the day off work today.  I'm pretty sick and have been for a good 32 hours so far. I won't go into the details but I feel like I've been back to Vietnam and the constant trips to the bathroom would make you think ... Read more >

I'm still sick

CHINA | Wed, 19 Mar 2008 | By avant-garde_chauvintist | Views [527] | Comments [2]

It's getting ridiculous.  But I'm still sick.  I returned from Beijing on February...something I don't know the end of February.  And within two days, the noxious air had me with mucus filled lungs.  Now, about three weeks later, I'm still coughing.... Read more >
