South Africa – the Rainbow Nation, located at the very bottom of the African continent, with a population in the vicinity of 58 million.

Our plan was to have 3 nights in Cape Town, drive the Garden Route from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth via various points then fly from Port Elizabeth via Johannesburg to Kruger National Park. So here we go……

Ecuador – Latitude Zero

Breakfast on the Pacific coast, lunch at a snow-covered volcano and dinner in the Amazon?

This might sound impossible but in one of the smallest countries in South America you can do this in a day – welcome to Ecuador, Republic of the Equator – a country straddling the equator on South America’s northwest coast. Its diverse landscape encompasses jungle, Andean highlands and the wildlife rich Galapagos Islands.

Adventure Cruising – Hawaiian Islands

Small ship, big adventures!! The adventure for me started at Kaunakakai on the island of Molokai with a demonstration of the traditional dance of Hawaii, the hula. Young and old, dressed in grass skirts and lei’s, swaying their hips, moving their arms and changing the expression on their face that tell stories passed down by their ancestors. → Read more

Antarctica Dream becomes a Reality

In December I returned from an expedition and it’s incredibly difficult to put into words the sights, the sounds, the smells and the emotions that I experienced. A fellow traveller said that she wasn’t sure what to expect, but her expectations were certainly exceeded – I would have to agree.

Central Australia

In July I travelled to Central Australia for a short break. We arrived in Alice Springs to unseasonal warm weather – 27 degrees, and after collecting a 4WD at the airport we headed through “The Gap” to the town proper. A number of years ago I lived in Alice Springs for 6 months over the summer, so the first thing that struck me was how green it is. The contrast with the red landscape and blue sky is stunning and the view of the MacDonnell Ranges from Anzac Hill quite spectacular.

A taste of Colombia!

Colombia has a, perhaps, colourful history – cocaine trafficking, drug cartels, kidnappings, guerrilla armies to name a few, however I didn’t ever feel uncomfortable or unsafe in the towns/cities we visited (Bogota, Salento, the coffee estansia, Medellin, Cartagena).

Sabah

In July 2014 I travelled to Sabah, Malaysia on the island of Borneo. My itinerary was private throughout. From Kota Kinabalu, KK as it is locally referred to, Mt Kinabalu quickly came into view as a dominant feature – 4,095 metres, the tallest mountain on the island of Borneo. The national park has very well marked walks and this is where you start the trek to the summit of Mt Kinabalu.
