My Extraordinary Guide to Guyana


When research began on the Guyana portion of my South America journey I immediately found information hard to come by. Often there is a complete lack of info, contacts, and the links only led to dead ends. With this in mind, I decided to create my own mini guidebook for travellers’ looking to come to this little tropical haven…READ MORE


Santigron, 2015, Surinam, www.wisdomtrails.com

What a difference a single river crossing makes. If you ever wonder why every country is worth a visit, no matter how small or unknown, then the stark contrast between the two tiny young nations of Guyana and Suriname would be an exemplary answer.

  • Happy Thai mother's day to my mom and my mom's mom. Missing you from Bangkok  #lovemom #lovemuaythai #rsmacademy

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
