The End of a Week

JAPAN | Sun, 6 Mar 2016 | By kakimono | Views [388]

We did have classes on Friday, which was a disturbing change of events after two consecutive three-day weekends. And, because we'd taken the test the day before, we were already well on our way to a new chapter. Complete with new grammars, new vocabulary, ... Read more >

It was once again a warm but rainy Saturday, and Mondial Kaffee was already on my mind. So I decided to head out. As before, I didn’t have any difficulties getting on a train that brought me directly to the nearest train station. And from ... Read more >

Mondial Kaffee (They're worldly because that have two different languages in their name)

JAPAN | Sat, 20 Feb 2016 | By kakimono | Views [443]

Saturday was another fake-spring day. I'm not sure if there's a real word for this, but it seems like there should be, because it's a phenomenon I'm very families with. In early March, or February, or sometimes even January, the weather will suddenly ... Read more >

From Paris to Dijon

FRANCE | Mon, 14 Sep 2015 | By kakimono | Views [326]

Friday morning was rather lazy. I packed for the weekend, sorted through papers, and cleaned the apartment. After lunch, I headed to the university for my last "math" course of the week. Really, my only history class, since if it was a math course, ... Read more >

Getting some sort of lovin' from Indonesia

INDONESIA | Fri, 30 Jan 2015 | By homeless_harry | Views [622]

For a place that sells non-alcoholic Guinness, Jakarta isn't too bad a city. Zero ABV stout is a grave insult to all I hold dear but if a place didn't have quirks, even offensive ones, there would be no reason to leave home at all. Being the size it ... Read more >

  Well, what a fun filled, exhausting, and beautiful weekend!   On Friday, upon arrival, we walked to our hotel. It was quite the walk with my duffel bag. The curse of this trip. Once we got to our hotel, we unpacked and rested for ... Read more >

Another day of trains…

ITALY | Sat, 3 Jan 2015 | By crobbins | Views [430] | Comments [1]

Here we are, on another train, yet again. This morning, I tossed and turned for several hours until the alarm went off at 7:00. It’s like my subconscious just wants to remind me “hey, you’re taking a train today, get nervous!”... Read more >

Once More for Hamburg

GERMANY | Fri, 10 Oct 2014 | By schmodude | Views [422]

Today I woke up and caught the shuttle bus to the Split airport. The airport is nice and it is very small. Instead of having a bus to take us from the terminal to the plane, they just had us walk out on the tarmac to the plane. My final destination was ... Read more >

To Berlin!

GERMANY | Sat, 13 Sep 2014 | By schmodude | Views [325]

I woke up and caught a S-bahn to the train station this morning.  My ICE train to bring me from Hamburg to Berlin was running a little behind, but it was not much of a problem. To be more precise, only half of the train was late. Since it is a more ... Read more >

Aberdeen, or City Fatigue

UNITED KINGDOM | Wed, 3 Sep 2014 | By kakimono | Views [351]

There's a point in any whirlwind tour where the whirlwind becomes tiring. I don't want to wander around a city for a couple of hours as I try and figure out what makes it unique and special. I don't want to have to check out of a hotel in the morning ... Read more >

Riding the rails

BELGIUM | Sat, 30 Aug 2014 | By schmodude | Views [336]

I woke up in time for breakfast today. It was OK, but still free. I found out that the Irishmen and most of the Australians I met were also on their way to Amsterdam at the same time. The Aussies booked a coach while the Irish guys were had an Interrail ... Read more >

Living the Pai Life

THAILAND | Tue, 27 Aug 2013 | By butterfly-freed | Views [3717]

I love this place! There is something about Pai that is totally different from any of the other places I have been in Thailand. It has a certain energy that comes perhaps from being nestled away in between all the mountains. Yes there are tourists here, ... Read more >

Issues, Issues and More Issues

UNITED KINGDOM | Fri, 23 Aug 2013 | By joannawong | Views [461]

Considering I did an excellent job with catching trains in Europe, I'm having an awful time with the transport in the UK. It's not that it's substandard and terrible here - it's just that I seem to have a running streak of issues. First, there was ... Read more >

Highland Times

UNITED KINGDOM | Thu, 15 Aug 2013 | By joannawong | Views [383]

The Scottish Highlands are really something. I traversed this amazing scenery this time by train. Unfortunately, even with a nearly solid nine hours sleep the night before, I found myself nodding off a lot, probably missing out on a lot of the scenic ... Read more >
