Ipoh Fun!

MALAYSIA | Mon, 26 Mar 2018 | By rutttroy | Views [706]

A couple of hours north of KL lies the city of Ipoh.  I was reliably informed it is known for its beansprouts, which quite frankly did not sound that appealing.  I eat my words (well beansprouts), they are delicious.  Juicy and full of ... Read more >

Hellooooooooo! I've finally managed to get hold of some internet time at school to update my blog...being connected at home on Thursday (fingers crossed). So much to report so I will probably forget some things. I have a place to live!  ... Read more >

HongKong Redefined

SINGAPORE | Fri, 11 Apr 2014 | By chinglee | Views [471]

I remember how I was swearing by the time I reached Tsim Tsa Tsui in HongKong on New Year's Eve of 2012. I had paid a huge deposit for my overweight luggage at the airport from Shanghai, and took the public train to our "cheap" hostel at the Chung King ... Read more >

Malaga, Straciatella, and the art of tourist watching

SPAIN | Tue, 7 May 2013 | By anuon2r | Views [583]

And so travelimg begins once again. I missed this for so long, but I must say that leaving home has gotten harder. And that is albeit the fact that I have been longing to "just get away from here, see places and be with myself" for a while now. It's bittersweet, ... Read more >

BHUTAN | Sat, 30 Mar 2013 | By mountaingirl0602 | Views [567]

Second day: My morning trip to the bathroom was interesting. No plumbing, just a room on the same level (second floor), with a squat toilet and a pipe draining somewhere to the outside. You flush by scooping up some water from the bucket. Hey, but I ... Read more >

Cyrano at the Folger Shakespeare Library

USA | Sun, 5 Jun 2011 | By kurenai | Views [824]

For some D.C. culture I would highly recommend the Folger Shakespeare Library (which also doubles as a theater). Located centrally on Capitol Hill near the Supreme Court and a short walk away from the Capitol Building this is a place worth popping into ... Read more >

Back from beyond

FRANCE | Mon, 16 Aug 2010 | By daisy | Views [513]

Well, I’m back from the far reaches of the globe. To catch you up, I did indeed go to Fremont and the Burke Memorial Museum. The Burke was great, very ‘together’ exhibitions that were local to the area. There was also an exhibition of photographs around ... Read more >

Reality Check 101

CHILE | Wed, 22 Apr 2009 | By melissamain | Views [742]

She swings dramatically between two camps: 1) wanting to go home now and 2) to keep travelling, finding new homes and new friends forever . These two extremes oscillate with the time of day, amount of food in her belly, liquid in her head, how many ... Read more >
