Oh, Hello Sunshine

UNITED KINGDOM | Fri, 13 Mar 2015 | By the_life_of_lady_laura | Views [413]

Northern Lights Effect

USA | Fri, 16 Jan 2015 | By alaoueslati | Views [519]

He stole a small white memo pad from his host's house. He was hoping they would not mind. He just needed to write things down. He knew that by writing things down, he would avoid going crazy. That is what they said on the radio. As soon as he found ... Read more >

CZECH REPUBLIC | Tue, 21 Jan 2014 | By joannawong | Views [692]

It's snowing today!! Just when I thought I wouldn't see Prague in white this time and would have to come back. While walking in the rain yesterday was more ridiculous than romantic, walking in the snow today was just as magical as I imagined it to be.... Read more >

Prague just continues to amaze me. And life just continues to surprise me. Something like today where I was completely blown away at Vysehrad, where this beautiful city was prophesised. I hadn't expected too much of it, having seen it on a boat cruise ... Read more >

Hobart morphs into Gotham City.

AUSTRALIA | Fri, 21 Jun 2013 | By homeless_harry | Views [1781] | Video

Thanks to a gambler with more money than most African countries, Hobart is artier than an over-graffitied public toilet right now. And what the city offers is far more interesting than your Mum's phone number and the services she's highly skilled at.... Read more >

I love Alaska!

USA | Tue, 5 Mar 2013 | By joannawong | Views [500]

I'll say it loud and proud, I love Alaska! Only 3% of tourists coming to Alaska make it into the Artic Circle and of that, an unknown but suspiciously small percentage bother to come during winter. I am in that very minority group and am happy where ... Read more >

Below freezing in Fairbanks

USA | Mon, 4 Mar 2013 | By joannawong | Views [403]

You realize that Anchorage isn't cold when you come to Fairbanks. This is a completely different level of cold. I think my thermals, fleece and down are required every second I am out. If I could take a quilt with me, I'd be better. And yet, there ... Read more >
