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 […]

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. […]

visiting the Vatican Museums and beneath

Posted from Vatican City, Lazio, Italy. My three days in Rome began with the Vatican Museums. I’m not a religious person, but … when in Rome. My Airbnb host made me promise the night before that I would get a proper Roman breakfast before I headed to the Vatican. By proper, she meant a cappuccino […]

Chúc mừng năm mới (Happy New Year)

Chúc mừng năm mới (Happy New Year)

I had no clue about Tet when I started to plan my route through Southeast Asia. The lunar new year – also known as the Chinese New Year – happens in January or February – the time when most of us Westerners leave our snow-torn countries for the warmth of tropical and cheap locations. In […]

S-21 and the Killing Fields

S-21 and the Killing Fields

Posted from Phnom Penh, Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Day 12 Someone suggested I see the jail first. Then they said I should go to the Killing Fields. To be honest, these were only things I had heard of. I don’t know much about Cambodian history. I had heard of the Khmer Rouge, but to be fair […]

Wat Arun

Wat Arun

Posted from Bangkok, Bangkok, Thailand.   Steph and I took the Chao Phraya River up to Wat Arun. It was late afternoon and the sun was back-lighting the temple creating a familiar silhouette on the river’s edge. A lot of foreigners took the boat, but there are other ways to get there. Bangkok does have […]

two weeks

two weeks

Posted from Motueka, Tasman, New Zealand. I’m getting excited. In two weeks, for the first time in my life, I’m travelling to a tropical island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. The island – Fiji! This is going to be a lot of firsts for me. I’ve never been to a tropical island. I’ve […]

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 […]
