Andaman Nicobar Islands

Though I have already written a couple of posts about traveling to the Andaman and Nicobar islands located in the Bay of Bengal, I think I left out some more outdoor activities in other islands in the archipelago apart from the main South Andaman Island where the capital city Port Blair is located. The Andaman archipelago comprises 572 islands and islets out of which only 35 islands are inhabited. Every single island is worth traveling to and […]

If you are a wildlife enthusiast, I am sure you would be interested in reading about rare birds and animals that live exclusively on remote islands in different parts of the world.

Borneo Island Wildlife Safari

Borneo Island

Malaysia and Singapore are the top two holiday destinations in Asia, if not the world. Both these nations are very tourist friendly. The attractions in Malaysia and Singapore are just too many.

We all want to see penguin but we think they can be seen only in Antarctic Circle. […]

5 Island Beaches in East Africa

Seychelles East Africa

East Africa is home not only to jungles and game parks but also to some of the world’s most beautiful beaches. As far as I have read, unlike the beaches in other parts of the world such the United States or India, the beaches in East Africa ooze totally a different culture that reflects the Africans’ belief, lifestyle, and culture. The life in and around the African beaches are slow paced and quite relaxed. In addition, the […]

Endemic Wildlife Watching in Galápagos Islands Yesterday, I dug out my camera to see if there is anything I can watch again to pass the time. One of the videos begged me to watch it again.

Some of the birds were stunningly beautiful and a few of them were huge in size. The […]
