Trains, colourful people and street parties

A travel blog entry by andrewreed


After a rough nights sleep, where I woke up in panic that someones arms was on me, only to realise that it was mine (it went numb from me lying on it), we ate breakfast at 5:30am and got to the train station by 6.

Once at the station, I didn't know what to make of the train we were catching. It was a sort of mix between Truck, Bus and Tram …

A travel blog entry by sarah.nicholls

Never Say Never

A travel blog entry by dkoste01


... it was the cold season which is June, July and August. I am still usually cold here, but not as bad as that night, and there are a few hours in the afternoon when it is almost always close to 75 degrees. I really shouldn't complain, and am trying to stop :­) (Notice: all weather and geographic data subject to modification by my accuracy addicted husband - see below :) )

So why are we living here? It would take a whole blog post to explain ...
