California is a place of huge variety and incredible adaptation – from Whales and Sea Lions to soaring Condors and giant Redwoods, there truly is something here for everyone. Last year I spent a whirlwind 10 days travelling across California with a group of scientists – here are my favourite wildlife and biodiversity highlights of the trip.
There’s so much to love about Dubai, but what really makes me fall for this entertainment hub of the world is the fact that the city truly has something for everyone, even for the wildlife enthusiasts. Here’s a list of some of the best tourist destinations in Dubai for those who can’t do without wildlife.
From Kuching to Kota Kinabalu, Intrepid Best of Borneo took us down rivers, through caves, into mud baths and up mountains. It isn’t hard to make Borneo an interesting experience, but Intrepid made it unforgettable. My trip to Borneo was a 21-day tour beginning in Kuching, in Sarawak, and ending in Kota Kinabalu, in Sabah. Although I was signed up for the full 3 weeks, the trip actually divided into two parts; Wild Sarawak and Sabah Adventure. Borneo is somewhere I had wanted to come for years, and flying over the clusters of jungle-hugged islands scattered across aquamarine bays, I fell instantly in love.
I recently had the pleasure of spending just over a week travelling around Belgium. During this time I managed to visit Bruges and Brussels, with a whistle stop trip to Antwerp in between. Belgium is a country of contrasts, of two languages and of strong beer, waffles and chocolate. This is my list of great things to do in Belgium. It’s by no means an exhaustive list, but it ought to keep you going for a little while.
