Angela's Away is back for another exciting instalment. This entry is out of order for the current trip as i only just


Lunch in Luxemboug

Sunday, 30 Aug 2009 | Views [309]

For no other reason than to stop in a country neither of us had been to, we decided to drive through Luxembourg and stop for lunch before continuing to Switzerland. There was nothing particularly amazing about Luxembourg city, but it did provide an ... Read more >


First stop: Bruges, Belgium

Sunday, 30 Aug 2009 | Views [278]

After an uneventful ferry crossing from Dover to Dunkirk, we decided to drive through Belgium rather than France. In less than a couple of hours we arrived in Bruges, inspired by watching the film "In Bruges" recently (the film wasn`t much ... Read more >


The start of another journey

Sunday, 30 Aug 2009 | Views [330]

To continue from the last entry in my journal, the story goes something like this: Angela decides to leave the south of England after her travels, moves back to the Midlands into a tiny Leicestershire village, joins a capoeira club in Leicester and ... Read more >


The final phase - fun and frolics in Thailand and Laos

Wednesday, 14 May 2008 | Views [434]

Wow the last couple of weeks have really flown by, as time does when you`re having fun. The jungle trek in Chiang Mai was brilliant. Twelve of us travelled in a truck for a couple of hours to the start of the trek, and spent a couple of days walking ... Read more >


God its hot here!

Saturday, 3 May 2008 | Views [501]

Which was my first thought when I walked out of Bangkok airport after 9 hours on the plane from Melbourne. Really really hot and humid! A nice lady in an airconditioned taxi took me to Tavees Guesthouse, where I was staying on recommendation. It was ... Read more >


A short spell down under

Saturday, 26 Apr 2008 | Views [535]

Oops, I've been a bit sloppy with my blog entries lately so for completeness, a word or two about what I got up to in Australia... which wasn't a lot!  Doron met me from Melbourne airport and we went straight to the pub for a catch up on whats been ... Read more >


First impressions of New Zealand

Sunday, 23 Mar 2008 | Views [661]

After spending a day in Auckland, my first impression was: GET ME OUT OF THIS CITY! There's nothing wrong with Auckland itself, just that being back in a big city was horrible. Traffic, noise, huge busy streets lined with shops, people buzzing around ... Read more >


Leaving South America... the end of phase one

Wednesday, 19 Mar 2008 | Views [499]

I'm actually writing this from New Zealand, having arrived here at 3am this morning (Wednesday). I was really sad to be leaving South America, I've had such an amazing time and feel I have changed and learnt so much in the 4 months I spent there. I have ... Read more >


Stunning Uyuni

Sunday, 9 Mar 2008 | Views [711]

Oops I´m falling behind on this journal thing, having adventures quicker than I can write about them! I guess I shouldn´t complain... So I signed up for a 3 day tour, which would normally start with a visit to the salt flats and the dreaded salt hostel, ... Read more >

Madness in Iquitos

Tuesday, 18 Dec 2007 | Views [507] | Comments [1]

It really is time I left this place. I´ve been here 4 weeks now and realised today this is the closest I have to a home at the moment! The longer I stay, the more I realise the locals (or rather the expats who have settled here) are generally fruitcakes.... Read more >

Iquitos - deep in the jungle

Sunday, 2 Dec 2007 | Views [417] | Comments [1]

I have spent the last week in Iquitos which is right out in the Amazon jungle, accesible on by plane or by boat on the Amazon river. Its called a city, but not necessarily what I imagined. As you would expect, its very lush and tropical, huge palms everywhere, ... Read more >

Randomness in Lima

Tuesday, 20 Nov 2007 | Views [370] | Comments [1]

So today I arrived in Lima, had to get up at 4am for a 7:30am flight. I arrived at the airport and suddenly realised it was very different from Brazil, which I had started to get used to over the last 2 weeks. So an awkward hour or so hanging around ... Read more >

Salvador and Sao Paulo

Sunday, 18 Nov 2007 | Views [384] | Comments [1]

I love Salvador! I was gutted to leave on Saturday, and if I´d been able to change my flights and just stopped off at Sao Paulo on the way to Peru, I would´ve done. Had so much fun there - I met three girls at the hostel and we took off for 2 days to ... Read more >

Salvador - home of capoeira

Wednesday, 14 Nov 2007 | Views [290]

Well I´m obviously spending far too much time on the computer and not enough time travelling; 2 posts in as many days!  My excuse is I´m making the most of my free internet time at the new hostel whilst waiting for my new buddy to get changed.  So ... Read more >

News about photos

Monday, 12 Nov 2007 | Views [262]

Rather than uploading photos to about 300 different sites, I'm going to use Flickr to store them initially and will then copy links into this journal. It might mean you have to sign up for a Flickr account to see them, which isn't the easiest as the ... Read more >

SAMBA!

Monday, 12 Nov 2007 | Views [349]

Well the excitement stepped up a level on Friday night with a trip to Mangueira, a huge samba night near or in a favela (large areas of shanty type houses literally sitting on top of each other). We got there at about midnight and things were just getting ... Read more >

3 days in...

Saturday, 10 Nov 2007 | Views [381] | Comments [1]

Just a quick update with the story so far. I arrived safely at the hostel after an uneventful and sleepy flight. The hostel is very chilled and laid-back, and I spent my first day walking around boiling to death in jeans and my walking shoes desperately ... Read more >
