Borneo Adventure

Our recent trip to Borneo was fantastic. The country and its people and animals were amazing. We saw heaps of wildlife including four wild orangutans and a herd of eleven pygmy elephants, loads of proboscis monkeys, turtles, deer, lizards, snakes, monkeys, birds, butterflies, squirrels, cats, insects and fascinating plants and flowers...Our children thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Aged six, eight and ten they coped with all that we did. They enjoyed the traveling, plane trips and different destinations. They really got into looking for wildlife and even loved the guided tour of the botanical gardens at Kinabalu.

Catalonia by Bike

Catalonia in north eastern Spain has long been known for its colourful past, stunning coastline and rolling countryside. This remarkable landscape is ideally suited to cycle touring, where regular stops at medieval villages, ancient ruins and Mediterranean beaches are an essential part of the day. The pace is relaxed following flat to gently rolling terrain, from the green Catalonian countryside past fields of sunflowers and wheat, forests of pines and even rice fields into an ancient land inhabited by Iberians in pre-Roman times and once besieged by pirates. During the ride stay in three specially selected rural hotels (each with its own unique charm), where you'll enjoy hearty Catalan breakfasts each morning and dine out at any of the excellent local restaurants each evening.

traveller reviews

I was looking forward to a solo trip for quite some time now, and this trip surpassed all my expectations. There wasn't a single bad or unpleasant moment during the entire trip. The accommodation, the choice of destinations, the cycling routes were all wonderful and I had an incredible time in the Spanish countryside
