GREECE | Thu, 19 Nov 2015 | By iain_and_tamara | Views [854] | Comments [1]

Ever since I had heard that the inhabitants of Crete were called Cretins I wanted to meet them as they would doubtless be close cousins to anyone on our school rugger team who met with the disfavour of the sports master Mr Horrobin. It did not take long ... Read more >

Path to Decision

NEW ZEALAND | Thu, 8 Jan 2015 | By nesrin | Views [313] | Comments [1]

It feels so good to finally say "I don't know exactly. May be three months, may be more, we'll see!" when people ask me for how long I am traveling. Before, the answer would be, and it always has been; "just two weeks, becauseI need to go back to work".... Read more >

Tony and I just spent about 2 weeks wwoofing on a coffee farm with a family in the remote village of Bhatkuwa, Nepal. I will be processing all of my thoughts and reactions for many days to come. It was like returning to Africa, where I am the only white ... Read more >

Well, my second workaway stint and it couldn’t be more wonderful. I’m staying at a health retreat and even though I’m working, I feel as though I’m also on a mini health retreat myself. I am definitely benefiting form the healthy eating and the ... Read more >

Qdos – My Ten-Day Stay in an Artist's Paradise (Lorne, Great Ocean Road)

AUSTRALIA | Sun, 14 Sep 2008 | By laurfish | Views [2180] | Comments [1]

The Dogs of the Bush

AUSTRALIA | Wed, 2 Jul 2008 | By cam2yogi | Views [941]

A steady machine came tumbling out of the forest.  Gears grinded shifting to a higher speed.  Eucalyptus branches crunched and disintegrated beneath the tires.  Birds scattered in flocks.  Wallabies bounced through the roughage.  And the smell of burning ... Read more >

USA | Thu, 29 May 2008 | By jomel | Views [565]

After Kings Valley we headed for Banks, Oregon where we were going to stay with TJ, who we'd only just met a few days earlier, but as it turned out that's the direction we were driving and she was just so nice and invited us. She may have been joking ... Read more >

USA | Wed, 21 May 2008 | By jomel | Views [1654]

Our 3rd organic farm was in Kings Valley, near Corvalis in Oregon. It was a beautiful 7 hour drive to Kings Valley- so green! It was cool though, a little more sunshine separating the rain would have been nice. We arrived on 21st May. Andrea and John ... Read more >
