- Have Baby. Will Travel. I've gotten slightly disheartened lately by all of my single friends posts about not having babies. Everyone makes their own decision, or life decides it for them, and I know I shouldn’t take it personally.

- Our Magical Hideaway in Bocas Del ToroWe arrived in Bocas Town starving, in our rush to leave the bug attack we hadn't really thought of food.

- Stomach Bugs, Ruins & a MASSIVE Electrical Storm In-BetweenWe survived our first overnight bus. The driver drove like a maniac and took the corners way to tight but we managed to get us to San Cristobal an hour early…Which wasn’t so great for Lewis and his sore stomach Posted by chellebelle in Nil Responsibilities 'Til 30 | Jun 14, 2015
- Free Door!!With the rise of consumerism, Chinese people love a good deal, especially if it is free. Even if this bus is missing some safety features like seat belts, the free door makes up more than enough for it.

It's a fantastic, airport departure lounge type of place, with everything super organised for the ten of buses that depart here every day!

If like us you rely on wifi, and you get there before the shops open in the morning so you can't buy a map, you're in trouble.
Baku is incredibly badly signposted.

For the most part, the busing system in Ecuador is wonderful. The buses are cheap, very well maintained, clean and run smoothly. Please note the caveat “for the most part”. Now, note it again! Night buses and the buses Posted by misskailyn in Miss Kailyn: An American in Gap Year | Sep 23, 2014
