David Leonard

October 13, 2014

It’s bloody freezing today. The first proper autumnal day we’ve had this season. However, I don’t really care as I only have 3 weeks to go! It’s been a long time in coming but I feel we’re nearly there now. All the vaccinations are completed, the Ghanaian visa is here a...

Getting to Alona Beach Getting to Panglao Island is fairly easy, at least it was for us anyway. We flew into Cebu City and took a taxi from the airport to the ferry port, which is a quick 20-minute ride.

Rwanda: Mountain Gorillas and memorials

Jessica Monk

October 20, 2014

It was not lost on me that anyone I met in Rwanda from about the age of 20 onwards had experienced and survived one of the most unspeakably dark events of the 20th century. Was the man driving my taxi a Hutu or a Tutsi? What was his story? Did he lose loved ones? Did he still think about it each day...

The beers for the journey seemed like a good idea...what a mistake. Bumpy doesn't even come close, it was like a 1 hour roller-coaster ride, which in the beginning was hilarious, but with beer in your belly the comedy doesn't be long waring off!
