Transit, snow and reunions

USA | Fri, 20 Apr 2012 | By nvogelpoel | Views [601]

Outside everything is white. The underneath hasn’t seen the sky for many months, hibernating beneath a horizontal curtain. I can’t quite see through my eyes. Time has begun to lose its pace. There is no day or night, only a tick-tock. I think we have ... Read more >

BULGARIA | Wed, 14 Apr 2010 | By tonielle_krisanski | Views [1396]

On the train today… all day from Sofia to Bucharest, then onto Brasov. As much as this is a bum-sore, it does give me plenty of time to reflect on my time in Bulgaria and “get that bloody blog done”. For the last five months, I’ve been in this frustrating, ... Read more >

14 hours is a damn long time. It's not quite the same as flying to Australia, but I've never had to do that, so 14 hours is the longest I've ever spent in one little, poxy seat. Flight was uneventful. Food was crap, barely slept, sat next to a frenchman.... Read more >
