First time in Borneo – Jungles and Orangutans!
 

  The first thing that used to come to my mind, when thinking of Borneo, was orangutans.

Brunei is also sandwiched in. I […]

  For my first Long Haul trip I was lucky enough to get Seoul, South Korea! The day got off to a rocky start. A combination of underestimating how much time I needed, late buses, a cancelled train and an unsympathetic taxi driver, I arrived at my briefing expecting to be met by the firing […]

Russian scientists discovered the desert in the 70’s and […]

My Canadian friends and I had met some Brazilians […]

Welcome to Doel – Belgium’...
