One of our favorites of the great apes is the Orangutan! Once we had decided to visit Indonesia it was not possible to come without seeing the Orangutans. We searched the internet and even local Indonesian groups for suggestions and recommendations. We came upon Siti purely by chance and as luck would have it we… Continue reading Siti’ tanjungputing Orangutan Tour
We were met at the airport after a day of travel by our local guide from Siti’stanjungputing Tour - Desi. Desi got us ensconced in a local hotel (see below review about our experiences with the Grand Kecubung Hotel) and gave us a quick synopsis of our tour to begin the next day. Desi was… Continue reading Welcome to the wilds of Borneo!
Our arrival at Denpasar airport was uneventful after 36 hours of travelling from Canada! We were met at the airport by our host, Ayen, from Praba Guest House, just a few minutes away.

A UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the largest sites we have been to in Greece this site is downright boastful as one of the most important cities of ancient times.

Could not have asked for more…and… Continue reading Aggelos Hotel
After a 43 hour journey we arrived back home from Greece early October... with oh so many things to do to catch up.

But, we managed to get everything… Continue reading Whirlwind travel to home base! And back to travel again!
