  • 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...]

In the latest issue of Globerovers Magazine (Dec 2017), we travel around North Korea from the China border in the north to the capital Pyongyang and all the way south to the South Korea border.

I recently spent over two months travelling around South Africa, Lesotho, and Indonesia, so stories and photos will appear in future issues of the magazine.

Soon I will be back in Myanmar, and then for a long journey through the Greek Islands, Cyprus, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Kosovo, and Albania. Should be good!

  • It has taken me almost a month since returning from the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK or North Korea) to start writing this article. All this time I have been mulling over how to start this very first paragraph in which I should explain why I visited this country. I am not sure if I should write purely about my travel experiences, or tell it like it is – everything I was told by my local … Read [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.

    El Jadida, Morocco

    June 28, 2017

    North along the coast from Essaouira, past the interesting town of Safi, lies the coastal bastion of El Jadida. While it is free of all but a few tourists for most of the year, in July and August the town transforms into a bustling holiday haven popular with Moroccan families mainly from Casablanca and Rabat. Their most compelling reason to visit is the UNESCO-listed 16th-century Cité Portugaise at the Fortress of Mazagan, the Grand Mosque, Church of the Assumption, and the Portuguese Cistern. Portuguese fortified city walls [MORE...]
