Coffee Kopi Luwak Bali. Civet Poop Coffee!

The most expensive coffee in the world, coffee Kopi Luwak, starts with a Civet in Bali. These little civets are hard at work processing coffee beans to make Kopi Luwak.

What Are Small Group Adventure Holidays Like?

I’m a big fan of small group adventure holidays, the more adventure the better, usually. I’ve trekked with the Hill-Tribes in Thailand, toured Tibet, sailed up the Nile on a felucca and hiked the Inca trail with one particular group holiday company.

Camping in Cooktown by Four Wheel Drive

That’s along the beautiful coast road, only suitable for four-wheel drives for most of the way. There is a sealed road further inland, but it takes slightly longer and, arguably, isn’t nearly as …

Reasons To Take A Round The World Trip

12 Reasons to take a round the world trip (RTW). Only 12? There are far more, but I’ve tried to condense them into an even dozen. Our primary reason for travelling is education, learning, and understanding. I’ve always been driven by my thirst for knowledge in the areas that interest me, this is why I’ve …
