Greetings friends. In early October of this year myself and 2 friends will be leaving the US for a 4-5 month trip to mainland South East Asia.

Freelance guide/tour to Mongolia Gobi desert

Sat, 18 Mar 2017 23:48:17 GMT

Hello, I have 10 days to spend in Mongolia this upcoming Easter and I am interested in a trip in the desert. It is not hard to browse the net for Gobi desert tours, but I am a person who do not like if it is too touristy and carefully tailored for tourist needs, but rather have it more gritty and "real" experience even if its a bit uncomfortable and challenging. I would therefore be interested in locating something more of a ... [Posted by banders - Mar 18, 15:48]

Dushanbe Grand Mosque

Sat, 18 Mar 2017 20:37:26 GMT

Hey. Does anybody know if the Grand Mosque in Dushanbe has been completed / is open yet? I read one report that it was completed in 2016 and I've seen plenty of artists impressions - which look spectacular - but weirdly, there is not a single Google image of the mosque, nothing on Trip Advisor and there are no articles at all on the internet about it at all! It's supposedly the biggest mosque in Central Asia, yet there ... [Posted by Gecko - Mar 18, 12:37]

We're just a couple of incontinent, slightly chubby, aging women who struggle to believe that we're no longer 25. What the hell happened? We're travelling all over, wrapping up the experiences into memories that we can look back on with a smile in the brief interval between middle age and senility. Our rough route through India is very sketchy, but flying into Delhi, Agar, Dharamshala, McLeodganji, Shimla. Delhi. I can't work out how to get from McLeodganji to Shimla; ...

Do you have to be a strong swimmer to travel Thailand proper

It might sound like a strange question but... I've signed up to do a tour around the southeast of Thailand with Thai Intro, I'll be traveling around Koh Phangan, Koh Tao and Bangkok - I've never been a strong swimmer, in fact the thought of swimming does make me nervous.
