For the past month, I've alternated between the unproductive wallowing in regret of not having taken a certain volunteer trip in the past and the equally unproductive daydreaming of my next travel location. Turning it over, I stroked the newness of the leather, and opened it up to document the first of eighty trains, sliding the ribbon into place.My companion flipped off the switch and wriggled around below for a few minutes until his even breathing told me he was asleep.

The party pours out the line they want to and tour operators are trying to encourage visitors, so it’s hard to find out what the country is actually like. You know when you’re travelling and you get stuck talking to that obnoxious person at the backpackers/pub/tour bus who tells you all about how they get absorbed in the culture and they’re not a tourist and it’s all about the authenticity and experience the real (country?
