The Trials and Tribulations of Offseason Travel.

Offseason travel - this post has been in the making for a long time. In fact, ever since I realized how nice it is to swim in a deserted pool during a rainstorm in Sri Lanka. Green Dreams & Outdoor Showers. Without realizing it, I have done a lot of offseason...

Living in the Jungle Book.

Volcanos and I are not a match made in heaven. Which is sad because I like the idea of a volcano and getting close to one. However, so far it hasn't happened. Last year in Borneo, Mount Kinabalu was shaken by an earthquake a few weeks before my planned trip and roads...

Hello, I’m Annika!
