In April 2017, we came to Indonesia. We started our travels in Bali, visiting Ubud, Sidemen, Amed, Munduk and Sanur, before heading off to Flores. After diving outside Maumere, then driving across the island of Flores, we did some extraordinary diving in Labuan Bajo, where we also saw Komodo Dragons! Followed by Yogyakarta, Borobodur, and the jungle in Sumatra!  Keep checking back, there’ll be more videos added as we continue through Indonesia.

Sumatra:

Bukit Lawang:

We spent a few days at the Bukit Lawang Hill Resort. We had an incredible time seeing some of the snakes that Bobi rescues, and also trekking in the jungle to see the orang utans. We finished the jungle trek with a fun river float!

We spent about 4 weeks in Borneo! Borneo is the name of an island, occupied by three separate countries: Brunei, Indonesia, and the states of Sarawak and Sabah of the federal constitutional monarchy of Malaysia. Malaysia consists of thirteen states and three federal territories, situated largely on two land masses: Peninsular Malaysia, and Eastern Malaysia (Borneo). We’re visiting the state of Sabah, first to see the terrestrial wildlife at Sepilok and Kinabatangan, and then to Semporna to do some diving off the east coast.

Semporna:

While we were in Semporna, the Regatta Lepa took place. This is an annual event – a magnificent display of the traditional wooden carved single-mast sailing boats of the Bajau people. The Bajau are a nomadic people, of various groups, clans and families, that traditionally live on the water in this region.

Vietnam Videos

*** We have many more posts on Vietnam still to come ~ watch this space! ***

We spent six weeks in Vietnam during February/March 2017. We very much enjoyed meeting the people, learning a little about the different cultures around the country, including some of the ethnic minorities in central and NW Vietnam. Oh and the food!

Sapa:

Sapa is a town in the mountains of NW Vietnam, near the Chinese border. The French used it as an escape from the heat of Hanoi. It’s now popular as a base for visiting the ethnic minority villages around: the Black Hmong, Flower Hmong, Red Dao and others. We very much enjoyed a two day motorbike tour with Sapa O’Chau, which included a homestay in a Red Dao village.

We love scuba diving, and have been fortunate to have enjoyed it in many beautiful locations. We don’t have video of every dive location we’ve been to, but we try! And yes, maybe we have a little adrenaline junky in us too, as we have really enjoyed bungy jumping in Queenstown, New Zealand, and ziplining in Belize and Costa Rica. Crazy? you decide 😉

We first visited Costa Rica in about 1994, and loved the diversity of landscape and animals to be found here. We were also impressed by the early conservation efforts made the government. We decided to come back in 2015, and spend some time volunteering on a turtle reserve: Pacuare Turtle Reserve, and then travel around the country.
