Day Trippin’ In Borneo: The Best Things to Do in Brunei

Brunei was never one of those countries that popped up on our ‘must see’ list. In fact, before we reached South East Asia I have to be honest and say I don’t think I’d ever even heard of it. When we decided to go to Borneo island, we realised it was just a 20 minute flight from where we were staying in Kota Kinabalu and well, it would have been rude not to visit really.

Discovering Dinosaur Footprints in Bolivia

Much to our surprise, Bolivia turned out to be one of our favourite countries. We didn’t know a lot about it before our visit except for understanding that it’s a very poor country, has some social and infrastructural challenges and tends to be a bit like marmite with travellers. As we’d journeyed through South America some people regaled us with stories of terrible food poisoning, scary experiences of theft and plenty of difficulties in travelling around Bolivia.

We absolutely loved the Galapagos. Even now, many months and adventures later, we love looking back on our photos of the Galapagos Islands and remembering what an incredible time we had. Whilst it’s pretty expensive as backpacking destinations go, and not exactly the easiest place to reach, I’d recommend it to any travellers who love nature and wildlife.
