Pare Ginard Museum, Mallorca

There’s a new house-museum opened up in Mallorca, called the Casa Pare Ginard Museu de la Paraula, Father Ginard House Museum of the word. Interesting name, huh? What do you think it’s about? It opened just a year ago and Toni, Marga and I went to have a little look during the first week it […]

Where to Stay in Habarana

Before I left for Sri Lanka I did plenty of research about where to stay in Habarana and where to stay in Sri Lanka in general, because I knew that we would be booking accommodation as we went along rather than in advance.

Wild Elephants at Hurulu Eco Park, Sri Lanka

I’m very pleased to announce that we did see wild elephants at Hurulu Eco Park in Sri Lanka! We had been in Sri Lanka for a grand total of twenty hours and so far we had: stayed with a local family in Colombo, conquered Colombo Fort Station, travelled on a train through the lush Sri Lankan […]

How to get from Colombo to Habarana

Back in Spain, before we even set off for Sri Lanka, I stressed myself out about how to get from Colombo to Habarana. I read so many conflicting reports about whether or not the 06:05am train from Colombo to Habarana does or does not exist and found a whole network of buses with no timetable.

My Sri Lanka Itinerary

This post is about my exact itinerary in Sri Lanka including costs. This is exactly where we went and what we did. If you would like to read about how to begin planning an itinerary around Sri Lanka, read here.

Maria Salinas Restaurant, Mallorca

Chef Maria Salinas has branched out on her own and opened a restaurant in the small town of Mancor de la Vall in Mallorca. And I met some friends there for lunch a few weeks ago.

    Off to Find Komodo Dragons!

    We were finally setting off on quite an adventure to hopefully catch a glimpse of the Komodo Dragons, found in the wild only in Komodo National Park in Indonesia. We were in Labuan Bajo on Flores Island and the day before we had contracted a boat and a local crew to take just me and […]

    Beneath Mallorca’s Surface – The Cova Tancada

    Did you know that this cave, the Cova Tancada, existed in the north of Mallorca, near Alcudia? Cova Tancada means the closed cave, and is one of Mallorca’s real treasures and best kept secrets, with huge dramatic underground chambers that just keep opening up and seem to go on forever.

    Only The Brave Join The Borneo Night Trek

    Is that how it went? Only the brave join the Borneo Night Trek? Or was it only the stupid join the Borneo Night Trek? I had read about night treks before I went to Borneo and even then I was thinking why would anyone want to do that?

    The Whole Rainforest Blog

    Searching for tarantulas on the night trek, being almost abducted by an over-friendly orangutan, sleeping in the open-air on an Indonesian river boat, and having the time of our lives in the jungle… These are just a few things that I have shared with you on this rainforest blog.

    Why Stay On A Klotok For Three Nights

    Okay, this is why stay on a klotok for three nights as opposed to two or four, not why stay on a klotok for three nights (or any number of nights for that matter) at all. Why would you choose to stay on a klotok in Kalimantan for three nights instead of two nights?

    Colombo Airport

    What to do when you arrive at Colombo Airport This is just a short, practical post about exactly what happens when you first land at Colombo Airport for people who are planning to visit Sri Lanka. Colombo Airport First of all, Colombo airport is small and modern.

    Colombo

    In my opinion there’s only one reason to stay in Colombo and that’s because you need a place to rest your weary head after back to back long-haul flights before you set off the next day on your real Sri Lanka adventure.

    How I Devised My Sri Lanka Backpacking Itinerary

    For me the hardest part of planning a backpacking trip around a country is the first part; the getting started part. The part where you know you want to see all the highlights but have done so little research that you don’t even know what the highlights are yet.

    My First Impressions of Sri Lanka

    Hi all! I’m just sitting on a stunning beach in Sri Lanka sipping a surprisingly good cocktail and listening to the crashing waves. Toni is off playing in said crashing waves, which you’re not supposed to do because the current is strong, but I can hear him laughing manically as he gets drenched so he’s alright.

    I hope you enjoyed the last few posts of my Indonesia backpacking trip, which we’ve just more or less finished with. There might be a few more concluding articles to add but I think Indonesia is more or less done. So, moving on…

    Did The Geckos Eat My Soap?

    I’m not 100% sure that it was the geckos. But I am pretty sure. And I’m not 100% sure that they actually ate it. But I didn’t hear the shower go on in the middle of the night so I don’t think they were using it.

    Kanawa Snorkelling in Photos

    I found Indonesia in general to be a great place for snorkelling, but Kanawa Island was possibly the best of all. Or perhaps it was a tie between Kanawa and the Gili Islands. Not sure now!

    What to do in Kanawa

    I was lucky enough to stay on Kanawa Island in Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia for four days. When you go to Kanawa Island, you should prepare yourself mentally for what you are going to find there. On Kanawa you will find all or nothing. Or perhaps a bit of both.

    Kanawa Island: Before You Go

    You cannot take the decision to go to Kanawa Island lightly, nor can you make the decision on the spur of the moment; it is something that must be planned in advance. This is because on Kanawa Island there is only one place to stay.
