What's On This Month:
Holidays, Events and Festivals.
The Online Edition of Nomadic Gatherings is being upgraded for mobile devices, with a new collection of specially selected 'Nomadic Photos' to illustrate each page.
Chapter 1 - Taking Off:
To Japan, where so much of Japanese life seemed uniformed with rules, rituals, and ceremony; keeping grace and saving face. I bowed; they giggled.
Chapter 2 - Kimchi and Gold Medals:
The Olympic ceremony was on in Seoul, and the event was being transmitted live to the on-board television above the driver.
Chapter 3 - Little Sister:
Taiwan was a brief stop en-route from Seoul to Hong Kong. They found it amusing that I was heading for China.
Chapter 4 - Colonial Gateway:
Between the modern financial offices of Central Hong Kong, old trams trundled along Des Voeux Road. No-one stood still. I had to get a visa for China.
Chapter 5 - China Travel:
Buying train tickets in China can often be a problem with five-day waits and people camped at the station. And what if you can't speak the Chinese language?
Chapter 6 - The Northern Capitals:
Japan invaded Manchuria in the early 1940s, and the Soviets followed in 1945. Some of the dome-shaped architecture still remains from the Russian period.
Travel and Tourism
We are constantly upgrading our country pages; checking links and removing the dead wood.
Link-checking software alone is not enough as a lot of resources we used to link to now look very tired, or have moved on.
This means checking everything by hand and making the necessary changes to our pages; along with correcting our own design elements.
If you see anything that doesn't look right, please let us know.
Invest in Travel
We are rolling back on display advertising across our Internet properties but could consider other sponsorship opportunities from interested Travel and Tourism Associates looking for a good return on their investment.
Prepare for your trip with essential travel tips and visitor guides from locals, travellers, travel guide writers and bloggers.
During 35 years of travel and living abroad Michel has visited over 120 countries, some 220 UNESCO World Heritage Sites and more than 100 of the World Heritage Cities. Michel's first Travel Book is available online.
Although casual readers can browse sample chapters for free, owning the book itself is not that expensive.
