Borneo Orangutans

Posted by Mikecowlan on 22/12/2012 at 12:30

http://www.lbah.com/word/wildlife-photography/ The web site is from a veterinarian that has been to Camp Leakey 2x. His photos, especially of baby orangutans at the rehabilitation center are the best I have ever seen. There is even a picture of an orangutan giving the finger! I found this while researching an Africa trip. His web site is the best I have seen so far regarding explanations and pictures of many travels around the world that include nature and wildlife. Since he is a veterinarian ...

Hey everybody. I hope someone can help. My girlfriend and I are teaching in South Korea. We have a one week holiday at the end of July. We really want to go somewhere awesome in South East Asia. I've heard one of the only places to travel in S.E.A. in July without hitting a rainy season is Eastern Malaysia. Is this true? Could someone recommend an island relatively easy to get to with good beach and good food? We only have one week, so we don't want to waste too much time getting there. We ...

Mount Kinabalu 10 - 11th March

Posted by lhannah on 16/11/2012 at 08:26

I will be climbing Mount Kinabalu 10th - 11th March 2013. If I can can find 2 more people to climb I can get the price down from 1000+ RM (£200) to 500RM (£100) each. My local friends are organising it - so all you would need to do would be to turn up (we could collect you from KK). The booking needs to be made in December so the sooner anyone can get in touch - the better. Let me know if you are interested. Cheers Hannah ...
