Day Trips from Bonito, Brazil & Rio da Prata & Other Eco Tourism Activities

Bonito is a must-see tourist destination if you are visiting Brazil, especially if you enjoy the great outdoors! Admittedly it’s a tad off the beaten track but is worth it to spend some time in the ecotourism capital of Brazil. It’s also not too far from South Pantanal so is easily combined with some wetlands wildlife spotting! Keep your eyes peeled for my new post coming soon about The Pantanal!... Read More...

Visiting Iguazu Falls – Facts & Advice for the Brazil & Argentina Side.

Foz de Igaucu Falls is the largest waterfall system in the WORLD and borders both Argentina and Brazil.

The Galapagos Islands part 2 – spectacular wildlife on the southern islands!

Back on the pangas we headed for some rocks to do some deep water snorkelling. This was my absolute favourite snorkelling experience so far - yes even better than the Great Barrier Reef! Firstly I have never encountered water so clear before - the visibility was un-real! Secondly, we were surrounded by younger more playful sea-lion pups that interacted with us even more than on the previous day off San Cristobal! They were spinning in circles and zooming up to us before diving beneath.... Read More...

The Galapagos Islands : Wildlife Paradise and a whole lot of boobies! Part 1 : The Eastern Islands

I can’t imagine any place so spectacular as the Galapagos Islands - the wildlife, the beaches, the geography, the natural history… It’s such a privilege to be here and experience it first hand after seeing it on so many wildlife documentaries. Do you remember the famous scene with the racing snakes and the iguanas in BBC one’s planet earth? It was so shocking it went viral across social media. It was in fact filmed in The Galapagos! ...

Interview with a Local : Pembrokeshire, Wales

My favourite thing to do is either walk along the coastal path, which hugs the coastline for 186 miles and passes 58 beaches, or find a new beach to explore. Pembrokeshire beaches are some of the best in the world, and because there are so many of them, they’re not usually crowded. One of my favourite beaches is Broad Haven. There’s a lovely walk from Bosherston to Broad Haven, which is an easy walk around Bosherston's beautiful lily ponds.... Read More...
