We like a good hike but we’re not hardcore climbers seeking to scale every highest peak we come across. One of Ella’s walking highlights is Little Adams Peak. At 1141 meters high,…

After a couple of nights acclimatising in Negombo, we were ready to catch the Negombo to Kandy bus and explore the real Sri Lanka. Negombo was fine but there wasn’t much in the way of Sri Lankan culture, sights, landscape and proper Sri Lankan food. We had just one day planned in Kandy city due…

Must See Places in Kerala - Kerala Backwaters

One of the massive advantages of travelling around India is, of course, the low cost of transport, food and accommodation. Your local western currency can go a long way in this part of the world. We found this to be truer while visiting one of the many must see places in Kerala. We had the…

Malaysia Wildlife On Borneo's Kinabatangan River

As we approached Nature Lodge Kinabatangan we could see dark wood structures poking out of the lush greenery. Houses and huts hiding in the trees like shy jungle animals. All set in a garden that overlooks the muddy Kinabatangan River. It looked exactly like we were hoping. A tropical hideaway, a remote retreat, miles away…
