  • Remote Galapagos Islands of Ecuador

    Islas Galápagos, named after the shells of saddlebacked Galápagos tortoises, is an archipelago of volcanic islands distributed around the equator, almost 1,000 kilometers west of continental Ecuador. These islands are famed for their endemic species studied by Charles Darwin which supported his theory of evolution by natural selection back in the 1830’s. The most amazing experience at the Galapagos Islands is that the animals have little fear for humans. [MORE...]

Feature Articles

  • Myanmar has some 135 distinct ethnic groups. We travelled to the far eastern Shan State to meet with several of the friendly hill tribes. Trekking past the green rice terraces up to the remote villages is a pleasant challenge, only to be rewarded with some of the greatest hospitality on this planet. Base yourself in the peaceful town of Kyaingtong, neatly arranged around Naung Tung Lake, and from here take day trips in all directions! [MORE...]
  • The mountains in Shan State in the far east of Myanmar, near the borders with China, Laos, and Thailand, is home to several hill tribes including the Wa, Wa Ann, Palaung (Ta’ang), Akhu, Akha, Lisu, Lahu, Loi, Ann, and the Pa O. Base yourself in the pretty town called Kyaingtong (also referred to as Kengtung or Keng Tung), and from here take day trips in almost all directions. The hikes are challenging but not difficult. Spending time with these hill tribes is such a special experience. [MORE...]
  • When you look on the map you will understand why the Caucasus is described as “Where East meets West”. Georgia is right in the centre! The old city of Tbilisi, the capital, is reminiscent of a movie set, complete with old brick-built homes sporting colourful doorways and wooden balconies. Outside Tbilisi the countryside is beautiful with villages dotting the landscape. Look out for many old churches and monasteries. We travel from Tbilisi to Georgia's religions centre, Mtskheta, then up the small Georgian Military Highway to the Caucasus Mountains. [MORE...]
  • Norwegian Lapland
    Lapland or Sápmi, is an ethno-cultural region which stretches over northern Fenno-Scandinavia (northern regions of Sweden, Finland, Norway, and Russia). We are visiting the Lapland region across Norway, Sweden, and Finland. [MORE...]
  • El Jadida, Morocco
    Morocco is famous for its food, souks, ancient fortified citadels and kasbahs, beaches, mountains, and its Berber people. We start this journey at the foot of the High Atlas Mountains and continue along the rugged terrains and valleys to the ancient ksar of Aït Benhaddou. We follow the former caravan route through the Sahara Desert to the bustle of the old, colourful souks of Marrakech, and then head west to the cool winds of the Atlantic Ocean. From the wide beaches and whitewashed fortified walls of Essaouira, we go past the fortress [MORE...]
  • Myanmar-Globerovers Magazine
    Myanmar is one of the new cool travel destinations. A place that certainly will not disappoint you. One of the most memorable trips is to take the slow and shaky train from the city of Mandalay to the northern town of Naba from where a bus goes to the town of Katha where you go on board a large ship for the 16-hour sailing (in your private cabin) down the mighty Ayeyarwady River back to Mandalay. It's a great trip as the boat stops at many villages along the way. [MORE...]
  • Bangladesh-Globerovers Magazine
    Join us as we board the 100-year old "Rocket Steamer" to slowly drift down the Ganges River to the Sundarbans in search of the Bengal tigers of Bangladesh. We also spend time in the capital city, Dhaka, as well as the notorious and infamous Chittagong Ship Breaking Yards. We then take a small wooden boat to visit tiny remote villages where people never had Western visitors. This is the real Bangladesh and its incredibly friendly! [MORE...]
