We entered Albania via Podgorico in Montenegro. I don’t know, there is something about the name “Montenegro” that made me think it would be stunningly beautiful – and the coastal area was, but then so are most coastal areas. The rest was not. Beautiful, that is.
We stayed the night in the one and only half-way decent hotel in Podgorico and in the morning wandered, caravan on tow, round various streets, none of which had any signs but all of which we were told led to the border in…Continue

Before I went to Borneo I had clocked up about 30 dives in places such as Fiji, Australia, Thailand and Egypt, but never had I been fortunate enough to see a Sea Turtle. It was one of the elusive creatures that I was so desperate to see in real life but it just hadn't happened yet. That all changed when I went to Malaysia and Borneo though. I saw my first turtle on my very first dive off of the Perhentian Islands...he was the resident turtle who frequented a particular spot, he sadly only…Continue

The Great British Weather always seems to get picked on; there either isn’t enough sunshine, or there is too much! Perhaps as a nation we just like to moan…?! Well not me, personally, I don’t think there could be too much sunshine! I decided to make the most of the little heatwave we had a couple of weeks ago so I booked a couple of days off work and headed to Bournemouth for a long weekend.
Not trusting the British weather 100% I booked a hotel with spa facilities – a back-up plan…Continue

Next stop: Perhentian Islands!
We hit the road again and headed Northwards...there was a lot of dodgy overtaking (something you kind of have to get used to!), an emergency stop to avoid hitting a rather large cow (...narrowly avoid!) and a couple of nights in a small town that was celebrating the beginning of Ramadan by singing the Qur'an throughout the night! I hadn't been warned about this so needless to say I had a couple of sleepless nights! Oh travelling!! I didn't mind too much…Continue

I recently traveled to Les Baux de Provence – specifically to see this year’s multimedia show, “Carrières de Lumières.” Located in the heart of Les Alpilles, this “Voyage around the Mediterranean” light and sound show was projected onto ~45 meter high walls and onto the flooring inside the limestone quarries – dug out to extract the stone needed to build the Château and the village of Les Baux. I was totally surrounded with mostly impressionist portraits and accompanying music, as well as…Continue

Hello Fellow Travel Bloggers,
This is my first post. It's actually a post from my website www.2atthebar.com. I'm trying a new venue to see how it goes. Please let me know and check out 2atthe bar. It's a little bit travel, out and about in Boston, restaurant reviews and my life. I usually write my blogs in chapters because I have so much to post.
My husband and I love to travel. Our most recent trip was Colombia - Bogota and…Continue

Now admittedly, I am a bit of a wimp… When it comes to thunder storms there is a part of me that gets a bit nervous, but I do find them incredibly fascinating as well. I have never seen storms like those I have experienced in South East Asia. These pictures were taken from the beach at Coral Bay on Perhentian Island in Malaysia, it’s great watching the storm roll in across the sea (though eventually it will arrive and you have to dash for cover!) luckily though they don’t always last very…Continue

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

“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

I was about to be dropped off a boat for some snorkling, a slightly scary distance off the coast of Santa Cruz Island in the Galapagos archipelago. As I have been somewhat traumatized by the film Jaws since the tender age of four I am not very…Continue
