Desperation is Political

You can find my full review of Daniel Gawthrop's Rice Queen Diaries here. One of the things I loved about this book was how powerfully it evoked the locations Gawthrop travels too and so I wanted to include something from Daniel's travels to Vietnam as well. What was I doing here? When I landed at [...]

Greetings from Hanoi and Ha Long Bay

Photos from Hanoi (6 photos) Cleaning up at the Ho Chi Minh Museum I'm typing this from an Internet shop almost within throwing distance of Ho Chi Minh's mausoleumóthe shift key on this keyboard takes almost Herculean strength to press, so I hope you appreciate the effort. The mausoleum is closed, so we didn't get [...]

Close Encounters with Nature

Please Pass the Olives

There is only one way to drive in Italy. I mean technique, not direction, although all roads do lead to Rome. Put your foot to the floor and pretend you know exactly where you're going. This is necessary because no matter at what breakneck speed you are driving, an expensive German car with Italian plates [...]

Bathing at Dawn in Saturnia, Tuscany

Steam rising from Saturnia hot spring It's best not to argue with a local. If one tells you that you must get up at half past five to drive for an hour so you can have a bath, your best course of action is to believe them. Sabine said we needed to be there at [...]

Vietnamese Mountain Butt Sledding

Probably the oldest, fattest American ever to climb it, and I can hardly believe I did, but I did.  We have pictures and videos to prove it. We signed up [...]

    • A Girl and Her Thumb Blog profile

      The thumb. A very useful part of the anatomy, especially when you decide to head out into the world, hitchhike and use other modes of transportation. For Jo Magpie, it (both actually) have served her well in her travels – always heading east. She’s once again on the move. Yup, east.

    • Home and Away Blog profile

      Naomi, David and their two sons are ‘on a slow roam around the world’. Though both successful, David didn’t want his children to view him as the dad who was always working. So, with the business and house sold, possessions relocated – the four set off to explore. Their style of travel allows them to live/work in comfort while spending quality time with Lucas and Easy (Ezekiel).

    • Kiwi Blog Bus Blog profile

      In 2008, the Annison family moved from the UK to New Zealand and bought a boat. In 2010, they upgraded to a camper van to explore the country. Though the cats stay home to help the elder son with the yard work and house, the remainder of the family (including the dogs) traverse the open roads of Kiwidom, searching for hidden treasures.
