Friday Snapshot: Colorful Reefs of Sipadan

We still talk about our dive trip to Sipadan off the coast of Borneo. This has to be one of the most magical dive sites in the world. The colors of the coral, the reef sharks, fishes, turtles and the remote location all combine to make this one special place.        If you [...]

Friday Snapshot: Trees in the tides, Bako National Park

December 2011: Bako National Park, Malaysia Borneo     Visiting Bako National Park in Malaysia Borneo was one of the many highlights of our Malaysia Borneo trip.

Good Samaritan or Unlucky Benefactor?

Early one evening a light rain had passed and the roads were a little wet. I loaded up the motorbike with what seemed like a months’ worth of laundry and donned my poncho. I headed to the laundromat just north of the Thapae gate in Chiang Mai. I arrived safely and park in front of [...]

Friday Snapshot: Crabby in Bali

Friday Snapshot: Candidasa, Bali   This little crab lived in our indoor/outdoor bathroom in Candidasa, Bali. He hid most of the day and we spent the rest of the time trying to spy on him and coax him out. He’d watch me sitting on the toilet and never complain. One day I caught him out [...]

Life in a Borneo forest-photos on the path of the Paku Waterfall, Mulu National Park

With a bum ankle any kind of cave exploration seemed a few days off so we decided on the short hike to Paku Waterfall inside of Mulu National Park. Our bungalow was inside the park and on the same path as the waterfall- they made it easy for us.         It had [...]

Caving is not dangerous: Niah Caves in Borneo

The Niah Caves were our first cave system in Borneo. From our homestay on the outskirts of town we got a taxi bus to Niah National Park where we’d start a long, hot walk into the woods. I scoured the ground in front of me for insects to photograph. The Niah Caves are located in [...]

Night market in Kota Kinabalu: a (bloody) photo essay

Finding a cheap meal is an adventure worth undertaking. The night market in Kota Kinabalu is right along the water’s edge and seems to stay open incredibly late. You’ve got your tourist-y restaurant options, or you can walk along the smokey stalls until you find one with the fish you’d like to eat. It’s a seafood lover’s [...]

Inside the Chiang Dao cave, Thailand

Inside the Chiang Dao cave, Thailand

Riding the motorbike on a day trip from Chiang Mai, we landed in Chiang Dao looking for an alternative to ‘hippie’ Pai. I haven’t written about our week in Pai because I didn’t really have much to say besides what’s already been said. The Chiang Dao cave is one of the main attractions in Chiang [...]
