Vienna

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 […]

Salzburg: and its music

Salzburg: and its music

Posted from Salzburg, Salzburg, Austria. If Salzburg has one claim to fame it’s being the setting for the Sound of Music. It’s next claim is being the birth place of Mozart. This little Austrian town sits on the edge of the Alps just over the border from Germany. It’s a short trip from Munich, being […]

Munich: and so much beer

Munich: and so much beer

Posted from Munich, Bavaria, Germany. I’ve been planning on visiting Germany for years, but I could never get out of the airport. I’d have connecting flights in Hamburg, Munich, orFrankfurt, but that’s all the interaction I’d get with this country. But then the opportunity presented itself. Following a trip to Egypt, which you can read […]

Panama City

Panama City

Posted from Panamá, Panama, Panama. The bus trip to Panama City from Bocas del Toro was rather uneventful. We stopped for lunch along the way, arriving around dinner time at a shopping centre that also posed as the bus terminal. Our mission was to find a way to our hostel, Villa Vento Surf. I had […]

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 […]

Lovely León

Lovely León

Posted from León, León Department, Nicaragua. After arriving rather late in León after 17 or 18 hours on the road, we were write-offs for the first night. There was some kind of a party going on in the bar at our hostel, but I think I was passed out by 10 p.m. The next day, however, […]

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 […]

Antigua

Antigua

Posted from Warsaw, Sacatepéquez Department, Guatemala. The drive to Antigua from Lake Atitlan was like all travel through Guatemala – unpredictable. About 10 minutes after leaving San Pedro we hit a road block. Construction was occurring, and we were told it could be hours until traffic would be allowed to pass. Luckily, there was a guy […]
