Everything I read about climbing Mount Kinabalu said it was hard. Really hard. Even the Book of Opinion () includes an amusing section about the pain, physical and emotional, you go through during the climb.  But how about climbing Mount Kinabalu with kids? The internet told me that people from the age of seven, Read More

During our Kinabatangan River expedition, we went for a night time adventure into the jungle.  We limbo’d under the electrified elephant fence and followed a man with a machete into the dark.  Well, why wouldn’t you?? These are some of the photos taken by our fellow adventurer Alex.  

Of all the crazy things we’ve done, drifting down the swollen, crocodile infested Kinabatangan River in Malaysian Borneo in a little boat in the pouring rain, watching an orangutan building his nest thirty metres up in a jungle tree whilst hornbills circle above and pygmy elephants wander along the river bank has to be, Read More

The blurb on Bako National Park in Malaysian Borneo says it has bearded pigs, proboscis monkeys and winged lemurs. I didn’t really expect to see any of these things in the wild.  But I thought we’d have a lovely few days sleeping in a slightly damp hut and going for lovely walks. Bako was, Read More

Where to start with Laos? It’s crazy to think that we’ve been here a month, and this is the first time that I’ve found to write anything about the place. And it’s not like things have been mad-hectic busy either. We’ve properly relaxed into travelling, and have really only stayed in three places. But, Read More

Well, this adventure really started on Sunday as we got on a two hour bus ride from Luang Namtha to Ban Don Chai where we were dumped at the side of the road, opposite the petrol station with our bags right next door to Mr I Daeng’s house. Six days ago, we had been, Read More

The Kalaw to Inle Lake trek is a must-do experiences for travellers and backpackers in Myanmar.  Instead of travelling straight from Bagan to Inle Lake by bus or plane, why not get off the bus at the sleepy town of Kalaw and spend three days trekking through the beautiful Myanmar countryside, visiting remote hill, Read More

We’ve pretty much based the dates for the whole year’s adventure with the kids around the trekking seasons in Nepal, so, you can imagine the levels of excitement as we piled into our massively overpriced jeep (there’s a fuel shortage you know, and getting hold of petrol is becoming increasingly difficult and expensive) and, Read More

Today Evan got bitten by a leech.  A fly landed on his boot, he looked down and a leech was climbing out of his boot.  There was blood tricking down his foot!  We were in Kinche on the way to Annapurna Base Camp in Nepal when this one happened but it had happened before, Read More

  Today me and my dad went to Poon Hill (Spoon Hill as I call it).  I got woken up at four o ‘clock in the morning.  Then I was forced to put on my clothes (all of the clothes I owned), it was NOBLIN!!!  Plus, to add to this it was pitch black., Read More
