Onward to Bocas del Toro

Onward to Bocas del Toro

Posted from Guabito, Bocas del Toro Province, Panama. After a short visit in San Jose to see an old friend, I decided to make my way to Bocas del Toro, a pristine beach paradise in Panama. Plus, there was the added fact that immigration only gave me eight days in Costa Rica, so I had […]

Flores – the gateway to Tikal

Flores – the gateway to Tikal

Posted from Tikal, Petén Department, Guatemala. Everyone said Flores was special. The old part of town is an ancient city on an island, in the middle of a lake, just across the border from Belize. If you ever find yourself in Guatemala and happen across Flores, do not miss the ancient Mayan city of Tikal. The […]

Iceland stopover

Iceland stopover

Just south of the Arctic Circle, in the middle of the north Atlantic lays Iceland, an old country filled with vikings, volcanoes, and sheep. This northern land is most recently famous for the eruption of Eyjafjallajökull volcano in 2010 that caused air traffic chaos, but it has other claims of fame like singer Björk, and the Blue Lagoon, […]

serene Doubtful Sound

serene Doubtful Sound

Posted from Fiordland National Park, Southland, New Zealand. There are moments when I travel. Moments so real I know leaving my house, taking time off work, and making my way halfway around the world to explore some minuscule location were the right choices. These moments are what we live for, aren’t they? Well, they’re one […]

winter begins in Queenstown

Posted from Queenstown Hill, Otago, New Zealand. It took seven years, but here I am, in July, sipping coffee in a (remarkably) quiet coffee shop at the Remarkables Shopping Center in Frankton, New Zealand, looking at a vista of snow-strewn mountains (also called the Remarkables) wondering if I’ll ever be warm again. My flat white […]

killer flies of Sweden

killer flies of Sweden

Posted from Gryttjom, Uppsala County, Sweden. First came the mosquitoes. I’m not gonna lie, I’m fairly used to these inconvenient blood-suckers having grown up in Canada. But the mosquitoes in Sweden are like some hybrid ninja-hulk mosquitoes. They’re huge and they’re vicious. So when one of these decides to come buzzing in your face while […]

Milford Sound

Milford Sound

Posted from Milford Sound, Southland, New Zealand. New Zealand never fails to provide when it comes to scenery – and Milford Sound helps this country maintain its title of the most beautiful and special place on earth. Located some 41km northwest of Glenorchy (as the crow flies) – just over the towering Southern Alps, this […]

trails around Wakatipu

trails around Wakatipu

Posted from Lower Hutt, Wellington, New Zealand. It’s touted as one of the most beautiful countries on the planet, and if you spend a few hours outside here, it’s easy to see why. Much of the land is unspoiled, untouched by the hand of man, left to its own wild inclinations, free to develop as […]

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 […]
