Always Trekking

In search of thrills - sometimes it can mean slapping rambunctious monkeys or being chased by a snow storm in the Rockies on a bike. We are trying to explore the commonly overlooked corners of the world before they are taken over by franchises, smog and chainsaws. Currently living in Shanghai.

Hati! Hati! – Indonesia Trip Highlights

Recently Jonathan and I came back from a three and a half week whirlwind trip across Indonesia. We spent way too much money and too many nights on the move.  We managed to cross Sulawesi completely on land and water from Makassar to Manado. Travelling over 1200km in less than two weeks took a toll [...]

Climbing the Great Wall of China – Jiankou to Mutianyu, China

Climbing the Great Wall of China was never high on my list of things to see. Besides Tibet there are very few sights that I get excited about in China and even Tibet has been slipping. In fact, China as a whole has been slipping but more on that later. Anyway, in my mind the [...]

The Pollution Situation – Made in China
January 6th, 2014Asia, China, DestinationsNatalia 9 Comments

You’ve all seen it. Sipping your coffee and breathing in your fresh mountain air as you gaze upon the grey photographs of China. Is that a building that I see or  a person or is it just a denser smog? You ponder what it’s like living in China, living with that air. You think to [...]

What I Miss Most About Korea
January 2nd, 2014Asia, Destinations, KoreaNatalia 8 Comments

I have now hit the three month mark in my time in China and I find myself reminiscing about our wonderful year in Korea. All this reminiscing is because I’m just not having as a good time in China as I did in Korea.  That time in Korea still remains the best year of my life [...]

The Time My Heart Almost Exploded – Shanghai, China
December 24th, 2013Asia, China, Destinations, Featured PostsNatalia 2 Comments

On my third day in Shanghai I received a wake up call that was real China. I experienced what it is like to receive emergency medical attention in the world’s second most powerful nation.  I also saw with my own eyes the difference between being rich and being poor in China. I also learned that when your heart is about to explode [...]

Cycling Tours in Spain

Guest post by Maria Kruk, an author for Spain.net Favorable climate of Spain allows not to give up on cycling even in winter; moreover, summer heat is more of an obstacle for those, who adores going on long-distanced cycling or trekking tours. And cycling is quite popular in and across Spain, including island archipelagos in [...]

Diver’s Paradise – Derawan, East Kalimantan, Indonesia
December 12th, 2013Adventures, Asia, Destinations, Diving, IndonesiaNatalia 2 Comments

Derawan is the place to just be. It took us two full days of travel to reach Derawan, but it turned out to be my favourite spot in Borneo. Derawan was what I have been looking for in my search for a beautiful piece of Southeast Asian paradise.   After the disappointment that was Sipadan, discovering [...]

Searching for Orangutans – Kutai National Park, East Kalimantan, Indonesia

  Kutai National Park is home to tarantulas, thieving monkeys,  leaches, machete wielding park rangers and of course, the amazing orangutans. We ventured into Kutai National Park because we were looking for wild orangutans. We saw orangutans in the Sepilok Orang Utan Sanctuary and we were even surprised by an orangutan standing one meter away from us. However we wanted [...]

A Surprise on a Plank –  Huashan, Shaanxi, China

I built up the “idea” of hiking up Huashan for months on end. Weeks leading up to the climb, my palms would start sweating every time I thought about hiking in Huashan. Walking on a plank suspended hundreds of meters in the air was most terrifying. The fact the Huashan is an internet sensation did [...]

Motorbiking Around Coron and Busuanga – Palawan, Philippines

Traveling through Philippines was one of my favorite experiences. It is an incredible country where there is something for any traveler. I’m very saddened to see the devastation that the recent typhoon has caused to such a wonderful place. Having been in Negros months after a typhoon and an earthquake hit, I saw first hand [...]
