USA | Tue, 12 May 2009 | By packlightwalkslow | Views [1104]

Traveller vs. Tourist. Freedom vs. Itineraries. Blaze your own way vs. the Tour. It's too bad the two don't get along.  So I'm going to Scotland, and I found this tour  that I think I'd really enjoy. It goes to the places I want to go, it's green, ... Read more >

USA | Wed, 29 Apr 2009 | By packlightwalkslow | Views [790]

Where to next? Scotland and England, May 17-29! Airfare is rediculously cheap right now, and my travel fund has been replenished from 2 years of hard work and saving, and yet, for some reason, it was incredibly difficult to hit "purchase" ... Read more >

Brisbane is another really nice city. I did plan on doing a few things from here, but time has been eaten up with nothing in particular and I'm more and more conscious of money (I'm spending too much!). I'm staying at another YHA hostel, which is not ... Read more >

My preparation for yet another trip usually begins here, in Michigan. As I have grown older (and wiser?) over the years my method and attitude for preparing for a trip has changed. In my early 20's I used to just pack what I had and just go, with ... Read more >

I have been exchanging emails with the director of my Peru trip trying to find out if I can bring my blowdryer on the plane or if my Milano cookies were going to be confiscated by Peruvian Customs Agents. After explaining the woes of lugging it around ... Read more >

Algo sobre NZ

BOLIVIA | Wed, 5 Mar 2008 | By marsrimbaud | Views [968]
