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!

Kakadu – world of water and rock

Kakadu National Park is known for its water and rocks: incredible floods and waterfalls, rivers, pools and waterholes. There are beautiful places of rock and Indigenous art. Vistas that go on forever. Kakadu is listed as a World Heritage site, and is the largest national park in Australia, at nearly half the size of the country of Switzerland!

Roadtrip! Darwin to Uluru

Darwin to Alice Springs

We took a road trip from Darwin to Alice Springs. It was lots of fun! We discovered a few quirky little towns, and drove a road that was mostly pretty straight!

Not-so tall tales from the jungle!

Kinabatangan Jungle Camp

It’s our third day in the Borneo rain forest. Two boat trips down the Kinabatangan River each day. It’s a rain forest, and it seems to have set out to prove it! We’d been on a short trek into the forest surrounding our camp earlier that day, and had squelched through the rich brown mud in our borrowed wellies, almost losing them sometimes to the sucking of the land. We had brushed aside mosquitoes, gazed in awe at the second smallest frog in the world, and laughed at the white fluff bugs as they jumped around (I still don’t know what they’re called!)

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.

Ningaloo Nirvana

In early April we roadtripped up the coast of Western Australia from Perth to Exmouth, with the specific intention of spending a month scuba-diving on the Ningaloo reef. Everyone knows the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland but not many people outside the diving community have heard of the Ningaloo. Continue reading Ningaloo Nirvana

Wild Adventures!

~ 14 days from Broome to Darwin with Kimberley Wild

We don’t usually plan our travels in great detail, in advance. We have a general idea, and then research places as we go, talk to people we meet along the way, and get ideas. We don’t usually book organised tours either, but in this particular case, we realised that our complete lack of knowledge of the area and the wilderness, meant that if we tried to do it on our own, we would probably die!

Western Australia Roadtrip

We have seen the beginnings of life on Earth. In a secluded corner of Western Australia, within Shark Bay, near Useless Loop, is Hamelin Pool.  And here are stromatolites.
