CHINA

Culture Shock! The Chinese Driver, 2015, China, www.wisdomtrails.com

ARTICLE: Culture Shock! And The Chinese Driver

April and I are on our way to the Longji rice terraces of northern Guanxi province in China. It’s the rainy season, hot and humid since arrival, but so far we’ve been spared any downpours on our first week in this country. That hasn’t been the case in the mountains. The potholed, winding road, barely a lane and a half wide curls between rocky cliffs and a raging river belowREAD MORE

HONG KONG

Travel Rollercoaster: Journey from Guatemala to Hong Kong, 2015, www.wisdomtrails.com

ARTICLE: TRAVEL ROLLERCOASTER – A JOURNEY FROM GUATEMALA TO HONG KONG

The good news is we made it to Hong Kong in one piece. It was not nearly a perfect journey and the effects of the 3 days of travel plus a 12 time zone difference are still weighing heavy…READ MORE

ARTICLE: CULTURE SHOCK! AND THE SORRY COMPLEX – HONG KONG

LAOS

Freedom Rider, 2015, Loas, www.wisdomtrails.com

ARTICLE: FREEDOM RIDER -LAOS

It started like any other day, waking up in a strange world full of opportunity and discovery with no plans or expectations. What it became, a 2 day expedition; just me, my backpack and a shiny new rented Honda I recently learned to ride, into places seemingly unseen by any foreigner or wanderer…READ MORE

TAIWAN

Culture Shock! And the Sorry Complex, 2015, Hong Kong, www.wisdomtrails.com

ARTICLE: CULTURE SHOCK! AND THE PORCELAIN THRONE 

For those of you who have not yet experienced the shear adventure brought to you by ‘the squat toilet,’ allow me to paint the picture for you. I entered a restroom stall outside a temple in Lukang, Taiwan and in that moment, much to my horror, I was slapped with a very dark reality. Western style toilets were a thing of the pastREAD MORE

THAILAND

Deep Water Tornadoes, 2015, Southern Thialand, www.wisdomtrails.com

ARTICLE: DEEP WATER TORNADOES – THAILAND

I haven’t had the chance to do any climbing while here in tiny Ton Sai, a town, no, village, no… a spit of white sand crammed between enormous limestone peaks, jutting out of the earth and ocean. A few bungalows and restaurants have sprung back up since this place was decimated in the 2004 tsunami… READ MORE

Things To Do in Koh Tao, Thailand, 2015, www.wisdomtrails.com

ARTICLE: THINGS TO DO IN KOHTAO, ABOVE THE WATER

For decades, Koh Tao has been analogous with world class diving at bargain prices. Travelers have been coming to this slice of scuba heaven for the abundant sea life, but there is so much more to Turtle Island above the reefs and beyond the salty sweet coastline…READ MORE

VIETNAM

Rice Terrace Wanderings, Thailand, 2015, www.wisdomtrails.com

ARTICLE: RICE TERRACE WANDERINGS – VIETNAM

As if being set in a terrace laced village high in the mountains of Northern Vietnam wasn’t far removed enough already, I venture farther. Beyond the tracks of any road. Beyond the comfortable reach for many of the other daring travellers with whom I made the overnight train trip to the…READ MORE

  • The rust red waters of The tiered jungle falls of Maliau Basin contrast the evergreen grandness of the remote conservation area. Worth the effort spent trekking days into this untouched, unchanged, piece of our earth. #MaliauBasin #maliaufalls #sabah #borneoisland #thelostworld #waterfalls #trekking
  • When I speak about Maliau Basin being like an underwater paradise, these are the images that come to mind: A mushroom that protects itself into maturity by completely enveloping itself inside a jellyfish like creature. There are few places in the so untouched, so wild. Each of them holding untold keys to health and future of our planet. We must protect our world! #natureisbeautiful #earthfocus #awesomeearth #thelostworld #nakedplanet #ourplanetdaily #travelawesome #roadlesstraveled #borneo
  • This is Cowboy. Cowboy is a porter for researchers, officials and tourists crazy enough to come to the Lost World. Cowboy also helps make the meals at basic campgrounds along the way. So one day while I was away swimming at the blood red Maliau falls, Cowboy lovingly decided to treat the group to his local specialty: Wild Ginger sauce. Upon our return, Cowboy's entire left side, head and body was enormously swollen and bright pink with heat. I'll never know what got him out in the jungle but sauce was delightful and he never stopped smiling 😀 #maliaubasin @borneoecotours #sabah #ecotourism #travelgram #travelblogger  #thatface
  • So incredibly delicate. So difficult to capture in its metallic resplendence. • #dragonfly #wildernessculture #awesomeearth #nakedplanet #ourplanetdaily #welivetoexplore #awesomedreamplaces #optoutside #wanderout
  • He sat here deep in thought, barely a foot away. Trusting, comfortable, unbothered. His tummy full after an easy meal at Sepilok Orangutan Sanctuary. Sepilok is one of the organizations in Borneo helping to rescue orphaned, injured, caged and threatened Orangutans. At the feeding platform, admirers can come watch them swing in freely if they choose to visit as they journey to full recovery. #orangutan #sepilok #sanctuary #borneo #travelstoke @orangappealuk #wildlifephotography #endangeredspecies #ecofriendly
