Down

Wandering Mee was down for 8 days and I feel that I have to apologize to… everyone out there that expected this site to be alive. I felt bad. Imagine my mom, and all the googlers that were lost and looking for directions from some blog in the World Wide Web. Just my luck that […]

How to Pack Your Hand Luggage?

After travelling for almost a decade to countless places, for me packing hand luggage has almost become an obsession. How to pack hand luggage in the most efficient way is almost like an art on its own. Why hand luggage? Because unless you move country (as in moving your place of residence), it is best […]

Funkier Site for UNESCO World Heritage Sites

As regular readers know, I’m really into UNESCO World Heritage Sites, meaning I try to include them as much as possible in my travels. So this new interactive website done by folks at silk.co piqued my interest: https://unesco-world-heritage.silk.co/ I’ve been playing around with it a bit, and think it’s worth sharing. The UNESCO website is […]

Way back in high school, I used to hike mountains. The first time I did a real hike, after countless hours of exercising, it took us the total of twelve hours to get to the top. That was one of the easiest mountains in Indonesia. The longest hike I did was two days, with a […]

Free Online Courses – The Answer to World Problem?

What would you do if you won the lottery? People say your answer shows a lot of who you are. I would want to go back to school. Sure, I would want to travel the world, buy a house, or start my own business, but I would really love to go back to school. Though […]

Paul Noble Destination Courses, PressReader, and Jaktogo

Are you one of the 89% of Brits that cannot speak a foreign language? (by recent survey by TripAdvisor) I guess I wouldn’t completely blame you if your first language is English. If my mother tongue were spoken and learned by pretty much the entire world I probably would make little effort to learn other […]
