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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

sexy Pattaya

Posted from Pattaya, Chon Buri, Thailand. After diving on Koh Tao I decided to head back up to Bangkok for a few days to do some shopping I neglected to do two weeks before and spend some more time with my friend. Plus, since she has weekends off, we decided we would head to Pattaya […]

Posted from Pattaya, Chon Buri, Thailand. The Sanctuary of Truth is an all wood structure reaching 105m high. The carvings’ influences are mainly Buddhist and Hindi, taking from ancient stories and culture from parts of Asia. The four corners/towers have sculptures from ancient Thai, Khmer, Chinese and Indian beliefs and religions. From the website, “The purposes […]

Paris, sing me a song

Paris, sing me a song

Posted from Paris, Île-de-France, France. My whole life I’ve wanted to see Paris. I’d been to Charles de Gaulle Airport three times, all stop-overs, but I never had the window seat, or the plane took a round-about way on its approach impeding my view of the city of love, and thusly my desire to see […]

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 […]
