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 […]

Tulum

Tulum

Posted from Quintana Roo, Mexico. We left Cancun around 11 a.m., not really in a rush to get to Tulum, but not wanting to waste the entire day. Tulum is about two to three hours from Cancun and is synonymous with hippies, yoga retreats, and people who live on spirituality and once a week showers. […]

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 […]

liveaboard to Richelieu Rock

liveaboard to Richelieu Rock

Richelieu Rock. That’s what I’d heard. That’s what they said. If you’re a diver in Thailand, that’s the place you need to see. And so began my quest to find the right liveaboard to see this and a few other sites in the Andaman Sea – the Similan Islands, including Koh Bon and Koh Tachai. […]

quiet Koh Tao (and I saw a whale shark!)

quiet Koh Tao (and I saw a whale shark!)

From Bangkok’s Hualamphong Train Station I caught the #85 train (departs 7:30 p.m.) to Chumphon, securing myself an upper berth and a joint on-going bus (from the train station to the pier) and ferry transfer with the Lomprayah company to Koh Tao for 1,200 Baht. There are buses to Chumphon, but after reading many mixed […]

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 […]

back to Canada

back to Canada

Posted from Farnham, Quebec, Canada. After an overnight bus ride where a teenage boy kept falling asleep on my shoulder, I got to spend eight exhausting and terribly boring hours in Orly Airport before I finally got on my Corsair Flight and made my way from Paris to Montreal. There really is nothing to do […]

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 […]
