Dogsledding with Green Dog Svalbard

Dogsledding with Green Dog Svalbard

Horse riding – check! Camel riding – check! Elephant riding – check! And now, dogsledding – check! When I was planning my trip up to Longyearbyen, I had a hard time figuring out what I could actually do there since I was only visiting for a day. The usual activities involve snowmobiling trips, glacier excursions, mine explorations, and even flights and cruises up to the north pole. Sure, they all sound awesome, but none of them could be done in a day so I was stuck scratching my head. And then I stumbled upon a four hour dogsledding excursions by […]

A Day In Pai

A Day In Pai

Set in a particularly picturesque valley north of Chiang Mai, Pai is a predominantly tourism-oriented town, offering a relaxed atmosphere with a broad traveller and backpacker scene. The town’s permanent residents are a seemingly harmonious mix of Western hippies and Thai rastas which gives the place a unique vibe which is appealing even if it isn’t authentic. — WikiTravel Many people said that if I liked Chiang Mai (which I did), I should check out Pai. Since Niclas and I also wanted to visit Mae Hong Son, we only had a day and a half to spend in Pai. After […]

Diving With The Great White Sharks

One of the must-do’s when visiting Cape Town is going diving with the Great White sharks – the largest predators of the sea. The town of Gansbaai is located about two hours drive from Cape Town and has two distinct islands off shore – Geyser Rock Island populated by a large colony (50,000-60,000) of seals and Dyer Island which is home to a colony of African penguins. Both species are the prime targets for Great Whites so the channel between the two islands is known as the Shark Alley. That is the spot where a number of dive companies are taking the […]
