Around Catarina

NICARAGUA | Saturday, 29 Mar 2008 | Views [993]

Around 3 times a week we go on activities, and a few of us have paid for extra trips too.  Butterfly and seed collecting, walks around the laguna seeing monkeys and birds, trips to nearby towns and museums, a fiesta in Masaya with lots of dancing and ... Read more >

Isla de Ometepe

NICARAGUA | Tuesday, 4 Mar 2008 | Views [3498]

A small island made up of two volcanoes in the middle of a big, freshwater lake that contains bull sharks - it sounds a bit surreal right? I couldn't miss the opportunity to see this place, my mistake was heading for the beach area called Santo Domingo.... Read more >

La Fortuna

COSTA RICA | Friday, 29 Feb 2008 | Views [1389]

Arenal volcano is the most captive one in Costa Rica - it was a tough decision to come here and not head east to climb Costa Rica's highest one - Cerro Chirripo.  After an easy 4.5 hour, $3.5 bus ride and I'm liking my choice.  Arenal is one of those ... Read more >

O'ahu continued

USA | Saturday, 23 Feb 2008 | Views [1019]

My time in Hawaii is coming to an end - I've already extended my onward flights twice.  I really didn't want to leave, and Darren and his girlfriend Kalei have been extremely generous and obliging hosts, considering my disruption to their lives. Darren ... Read more >

USA | Wednesday, 13 Feb 2008 | Views [1030]

Maui is a small island with a big volcano.  Haleakala may only be 10,023 feet (3055m) high, but it would be a lot taller than Mt Everest if measured from the ocean floor.  The road up also allows the biggest change in elevation in the shortest distance ... Read more >

Big Island

USA | Monday, 11 Feb 2008 | Views [1144] | Comments [1]

It's been dark an hour, I'm clambering over volcanic rocks in the middle of seemingly nowhere.  A little LED torch with the power of a baby glow worm is lighting my way, the noise of the ocean is to my right, the glow of flowing lava is up ahead - i ... Read more >

Aloha Hawai'i - the island of O'ahu

USA | Friday, 8 Feb 2008 | Views [1959]

Da-da da-da daaaa-da, da-da da-da daaaa Hawaii five-o? - no? I never originally thought I'd reach here on this trip, i wasn't even sure I'd make it here after catching my flight from New Zealand to Sydney (bizarrely it was cheaper to go this route).... Read more >

Tongariro Crossing

NEW ZEALAND | Tuesday, 20 Nov 2007 | Views [1710] | Comments [1]

The northern circuit is one of the 9 great walks of NZ.  A 4 day trek past stunning volcanic peaks (Mt Doom from LOR's), azure blue lakes, sulphurous hot springs and knackered fellow trekkers.  I'll ignore the fact that my fellow trekkers are nearly ... Read more >

The Not So Bad Ocean Road

AUSTRALIA | Tuesday, 2 Oct 2007 | Views [1670]

I've got a nice blue (the colour is important) hire car at $28 a day for the next 9 days.  Wow, am i excited.  It's been over a year since I've driven a car...but I'm not worried.  Complete freedom, a huge country to lose myself in, places to discover, ... Read more >

Gunung bromo

INDONESIA | Monday, 20 Aug 2007 | Views [3480]

It's a 03:30 start, but i don't feel particularly tired considering I've only had about 2 hours sleep and nearly 12 hours of travelling.  What did i say about no more dawn starts!  This ones for an active volcano, not a mountain and I'm being driven, ... Read more >

Naples and Vesuvius

ITALY | Thursday, 14 Dec 2006 | Views [1414] | Comments [1]

It doesn't sound good for Naples - the descriptions are 'dirty' and 'crime ridden'.  Well dirty it definitely is, full of scooters pumping out fumes, rubbish on the streets and grubby grey scenery.  But it has such a vibe, it's bursting with life and ... Read more >
