Since I was going to conquer the mountain alone, I decided to sign up for the geological tour that was hosted by the Mount St. Helen’s Institute

“If you are a hiker in good shape, this hike will tear you apart. All you’ll be able to say is, “I can’t take it much longer!” However, if you are a hiker in excellent shape, who has hiked Mount Defiance the hard way, you may have so much fun you’ll barely realize how sore you are hiking this mountain.”

In 2003, UNESCO gave Harar the “City of Peace Prize” for the peaceful co-existence of its ethnic and religious communities

Khat, chat or qat, depending on the spelling, is classified as an illegal drug in most of the western world but it’s perfectly acceptable in the Horn of Africa, where it’s seen as a mild stimulant or, jokingly, a coffee substitute. In Harar, where the world’s best quality is grown due to its perfect altitude and soil, it’s not only acceptable but as I was to discover, a part of daily life.

Day Trips from Ho Chi Minh city to Mekong River Delta and Cu Chi Tunnels

Keywords: travel, adventure, vietnam

We had a couple of individual days away from the city for these excursion and they were such eye-openers and a very different perspective on this region of Vietnam. With an early start one day and a late evening return to our hotel the other, we felt the trips were such a contrast to the other experiences we had on our stay in Ho Chi Minh and added such depth to our overall stay.

As it is currently pouring over Bogota, I thought now was as good a time as any to tell you what I was up to last week-end, which was extra long for me as Colombia also celebrates Columbus Day as Dia de la Raza y la Hispanidad, literally Race and Hispanicity Day. Controversies surrounding genocidal maniac Christopher Columbus aside, with that Monday off, and since I don’t have class on Tuesdays and my first class is at 5 P.M. on Wednesdays, I jetted off to the area of Santa Marta, in the North of Colombia.

Why Santa Marta? Well, because I already had arranged for accommodation up there since before I even left Europe. How? Because I stayed with a Couchsurfing member who I had already interacted with a few times on the website’s forums, and who had extended me an invitation up north whenever I would get…

Hola!

Good Morning Beautiful Humans. I hope you’re having a wonderful morning so far.

I recently went on a trip to Las Vegas. My first time there with my boyfriend. It was a rocky start, but it ended in the most positive way possible. We woke up dark and dreary at 2:30 AM! The beginning of the trip held a few snags, a few tears, and an anxiety attack on the airplane. Once we landed it, everything that happened in the air was forgotten. I grabbed my lover’s hand and we moved forward as one.

We stayed at the Paris Hotel, sharing a room with his parents. I was very anxious and nervous about this vacation. I wasn’t sure how it was going to go or what exactly was going to happen. I was pleasantly surprised that I had an amazing time with my love. The first day we had…
