An old friend in San Jose

An old friend in San Jose

Posted from Heredia Province, Costa Rica. From Santa Teresa I headed to San Jose to see an old friend. I didn’t have much plans for San Jose, just two nights. My journey to the big city was a rather disappointing, and over-priced shuttle experience. Santa Teresa is a bit out of the way, making it a […]

Santa Teresa

Santa Teresa

Posted from Address not found. Friends of mine have been going to Costa Rica for years. Some particularly go to Santa Teresa, a surf destination on the west coast.  I’ve heard so many good things about this country, that it was a relief to finally step foot here and see what all the fuss was […]

Antigua to Leon

Antigua to Leon

Posted from León, León Department, Nicaragua. The trip from Antigua to Leon was long and trying. You never know what’s going to happen when you book yourself on a 17-hour van ride across Central America, but this was our experience. The shuttle we booked through BigFoot Hostel for $55 was meant to collect us at our […]

magical Egypt

magical Egypt

Posted from Giza Governorate, Egypt. We were packed into the van, glued to the windows like children at a candy shop. Our tour leader, Islam (yes, that’s his name,) was giving us advice and information about what would happen and how things work, but it was difficult to pay attention. The medley of traffic was […]

Beautiful Amsterdam

Beautiful Amsterdam

Posted from Amsterdam, North Holland, Netherlands. Amsterdam wasn’t what I expected. Anyone who who’s been to this famous Dutch town knows what I’m talking about. I’d seen the photos and I’d heard the stories. I was expecting Amsterdam to be filled with potheads and prostitutes lurking in alleys like some grim Tim Burton movie.  If there […]

crate day

crate day

Posted from Queenstown, Otago, New Zealand. Is it a holiday? Is it a glorified excuse to abuse alcohol? A remarkable journey into the vast capabilities of the human body? Is it just a reason to try to consume 9 litres of alcohol in one day? Or an excuse to be a bloody idiot all day? […]

Gili Trawangan

Gili Trawangan

Posted from West Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia. Oh, Gili Trawangan. How easy it is to do nothing and forget about everything when I am on such a laid-back and easy-going island. The hangovers contribute to my shiftlessness, but this island is also known as the party island, and I don’t plan on leaving without exploiting that […]

low season in Koh Lanta

low season in Koh Lanta

Posted from Ko Lanta, Krabi, Thailand. About a two-hour ferry ride from Ao Nang lies Koh Lanta, a seemingly unspoiled island in Thailand’s Andaman Sea. Sure, there’s resorts and bungalows absolutely everywhere, and maybe it’s because it’s low season, but it seems like Koh Lanta didn’t sell their soul to tourism the way so many […]

Vienna

Posted from Address not found. The train ride from Salzburg to Vienna is a short journey. There are a few train stations in Vienna, with trains departing and arriving from different locations. I wasn’t sure where my ticket would leave me, but the transportation system in the city is excellent and very straight forward to […]
