Cool Jamaica

A travel blog entry by s_sarkardei


... rather puzzled by the guys sitting next to me, as the first thing he told me as he took his seat, was that he is afraid of flying! I had to remind him that he was sitting on an emergency exit seat and he replied with "I am fully aware of that and the airline is fully aware of that too!" I guess in the case of emergency, he would be the first one to get out. He then continued drinking quite heavily and I was still puzzled by how much alcohol the airline fed him, knowing that he ...

Blue Mountain Coffee Insight

A travel blog entry by annarapp


Thanks to the coffee contact in Kingston I had received through my relatives in Switzerland who are in the coffee business, I was invited to a visit a farm and a factory in the famous Blue Mountains where some of the world's best coffee is grown.

What I Have Failed to Mention: I'm a Nerd.

A travel blog entry by smiling_nomad


... I'm a human stationary store ("Heather, can I borrow your mini-stapler, hole punch, highlighter...."), the girl that always hands in assignments (typed, double-spaced, APA-appropriate) on time or in advance of due dates, the student that wakes up next to oddly creased textbook pages, the bus passenger that has a book cover instead of a nose and mouth. I'm a total and utter nerd. ;) For the first time in my life, I care about my studies, and about how each ...
