Our visit to the rehabilitation center. It is still raining harder than ever…we wondered if the feeding area would be closed. The feeding area is open with only a couple of other visitors. We were delighted to see a Mama Orangutan and her baby. A couple of large Orangutans arrive and once they eat their […]

Cruising around Wreck Cove we see Devils Island in the distance.
Monsoon Season Travelling to Borneo during Monsoon season is probably not the wisest option. However in many ways it added to our adventure. On our first night the rains were pounding down and we feared we could be washed away. The water was roaring down the hill behind us all night long. On a positive […]
We are told that Orangutans have a 96% match genetically to humans. Seeing them in action, it is easy to believe they are a match to humans. Rangers place food on a platform a short way from us. Within minutes it attracts two young Orangutans. They swing above our heads like trapeze artists. All of […]
Peggy’s Cove – They look like wild roses but I had climb down over the rocks to see what that these are . I am thinking maybe roses?? I will name them Rock Flowers. LOL!

Cruising towards the MacDonald Bridge, Halifax NS
With no doubt, this is one of those sites that describes mankind at its worst. So hauntingly quiet. Between 1975-1978, these years of horror, my senses can not take this all in. The leader of the Communist Party ,Pol Pot, pushed Cambodia towards communism. It resulted in the deaths of 1.5 to 2 million people from […]
I am haunted by this place. I wish I had never gone. I wake sometimes in the night and think of some of the things I saw and learnt here. I was aware that as a tourist I only touched on the slightest fragment of the suffering that went on here but the trauma of […]
