Adventure, jungle, wildlife and beauty are the first words that spring to mind when I think of my travels in Borneo. This place should definitely be on the list of places to go for the adventure-hungry traveller. It's just waiting to be explored.
The island of Borneo is the third-largest in the world, which includes Malaysia, Indonesia and Brunei. The two provinces of Malaysian Borneo are Sarawak and Sabah, where I spent most of my time…Continue

I’ve been to Berlin numerous times so have already seen major sights such as the Brandenburger Gate or the Reichstag. For that reason I was keen to do some sightseeing in Berlin that was off the beaten tourist path. When I heard about a free street art tour by Alternative Berlin Tours which promised to show a different side of Berlin, I was very excited.
Until this point I thought that graffiti and street art were pretty much the same thing, but during the tour I learned that there…Continue

I already mentioned in my last post about the Holi Festival of Colours that I have fallen completely in love with Kathmandu, Nepal’s wonderful capital. When I drove from Kathmandu airport to our hotel I didn’t think I would like Kathmandu as much actually. It was so dusty that I had to wear a facemask. Poverty and homelessness was omnipresent. Most of the roads were undrivable and there were loads of crumbling or…Continue

Holi is a religious festival mostly practised in India and Nepal which celebrates the beginning of spring. Originally, it was a festival that commemorated good harvests and fertile land. Hindus believe it is a time for enjoying spring’s abundant colors and saying farewell to winter. It also has a religious purpose, commemorating events present in Hinduism. But in reality much of this holiness seemed, to the untrained eye, as an excuse for children (and a good many adults) to roam the streets…Continue

A few years ago I did an Amazon Jungle Tour in Ecuador where I was trying to fulfill my dream of being an explorer. In true explorer fashion we embarked on a trip to an indigenous village, somewhere in the middle of the jungle. The locals were really friendly, but I couldn’t help but see them whispering to each other and our guide as we arrived. They were giggling and when…Continue

“Make sure you put all of your valuables into the dry bag, because it’s gonna be wet.” We were about to board a speed boat to drive up close to a massive waterfall that was famous well before it featured in the latest Indiana Jones movie, Kingdom of the Crystal Skull – the magnificent Iguassu Falls at the border of Argentina and Brazil.

I’ve been pulling the levers and switches behind the scenes at Vagabondish.com for more than six and a half years. Today – May 21, 2013 – marks my 2,418th day of travel blogging.
I’ve made a lot of mistakes in that time. Like, a lot. (Bah … this Twitter thing’ll never catch on!) But thankfully it’s taught me a lot too. While I can’t tell you everything I’ve learned (because I’ve forgotten much of it), here are the ten most important things I think every travel…Continue

The East End of Long Island is less than two hours from New York City and suprisingly rural, so parents often ask me what there is to do out there with kids. Unfortunately, everything I know about the Hamptons I’ve learned from watching Sex and the City and Revenge, which tend focus on adult pursuits like drinking, back-stabbing and adultery.
To find some better answers, 5-year-old Tiny Traveler and I headed out to the Riverhead and the South Fork over spring break.…Continue

The cost can easily equal to two or more major travel expense. Those who want to experience it can look for discounted first class tickets offered by many airlines and travel agencies.

Anyone that has been to Nice knows that the Cours Saleya is the heart of Old Nice and is host to the daily food and flower market, except for Monday’s antique market. Being a highly touristic area, the restaurants, situated along each side of this corridor, compete for customers, as they try to verbally lure you into theirs.
I hadn’t eaten seafood in a while, so decided to try “Chez Freddy,”…Continue
