The journey to Lima

PERU | Mon, 8 Oct 2018 | By mattso | Views [109]

A Hub of Terrifying Traffic.

VIETNAM | Wed, 19 Apr 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [388]

Hanoi is a crazy hub of culture. There are streets of market stalls and vendors packed with locals, then roads over run by travellers. The buildings here are unusual compared to anywhere else. They are narrow but really tall. And when I say narrow, they ... Read more >

Learning to Love Laos

THAILAND | Sat, 8 Apr 2017 | By tigerlillytravels | Views [634]

I would never tell someone not to visit a place, but Vientiane isn't somewhere we see ourselves visiting again. It's beautiful, full of South East Asian/French culture and some lovely things to see, but it's not as welcoming as other places we have visited.... Read more >

Eating and Sleeping

INDIA | Mon, 19 Jan 2015 | By lucitravels | Views [219]

India is everything and nothing that I thought it would be. I’ve only gotten a taste at this point, but that taste is pretty strong. Traveling there was intense. From Minneapolis to France it was an eight hour flight, and I had a two hour layover ... Read more >

To Munich!

GERMANY | Fri, 19 Sep 2014 | By schmodude | Views [288]

We had to wake up early and take some trains to the west side of Berlin. Our bus was departing from the central bus station to bring us to Oktoberfest. The ride was pretty awful. Bad traffic made for over a 9 hour bus ride to Munich. Matt and I went ... Read more >

Transient Nha Trang

VIETNAM | Wed, 14 May 2014 | By goingsolo | Views [271] | Comments [2]

I savour the taste of the Vietnamese coffee.  It is nutty and sweet and strong but not bitter at all.  I sip it slowly because every mouthful gives me brief moments of bountiful happiness.  The dry iced coffee is also a welcome contradiction ... Read more >

KENYA | Fri, 3 Jan 2014 | By butterfly-freed | Views [2352]

New Years Eve is an all-inclusive event at the Turtle Bay Hotel and fairly fully subscribed despite the £70 adult admission price. The buffet is massive and I can't begin to imagine the amount of work and stress that goes on behind the scenes to ... Read more >

On second thought, Kolkata

INDIA | Sun, 29 Sep 2013 | By tjrossi | Views [539]

To the uninitiated Kolkata seems a city of pure chaos.  At least that was my first impression.     Every type of transport jockeys for position on narrow streets with little or no pavements.  To get from A to B on foot you experience ... Read more >

Pak and his Anjing

INDONESIA | Wed, 11 Apr 2012 | By tracie | Views [1146]

Just a quick post today so I can share one of my favourite pics from my Bali life. Most of the time, I don't notice what us Westerners would call the 'unorganised' and 'disorderly' ways of Bali anymore. For example, the traffic is ... Read more >

The Road Less Traveled

CHINA | Wed, 12 Oct 2011 | By jaydizzle | Views [505]

In America, you never think "boy, I'm glad they have laws against driving on the sidewalk."  For most of us, it would never occur to us to drive on a sidewalk, down a median, through a walking path, or any other such surface.  In fact, I often ... Read more >
