Etosha Park in Namibia – Wildlife Safari and Adventure

Tuesday, March 1st, 2011

If you have a week or so and want to really experience Africa you should consider Namibia. I once spent only one week there but it felt like a lot longer because I filled this week with so many exciting activities. You fly into Windhoek and take a rental car if you want to be independent. Of course you can take a guided tour like a safari tour as well. The most important place to see would be Etosha National Park. Click to continue »

National parks in Costa Rica

Sunday, February 20th, 2011

Costa Rica is a must-do for any nature lover. There are numerous national parks in the small country and they are organized a bit like the national parks in the US. There are rangers and maps and hiking trails through the jungle or up volcanoes, and you can actually feel quite safe. Especially if you are interested in birds Click to continue »

Hiking in Patagonia – Chile – Argentina

Monday, February 14th, 2011

One of the most beautiful hiking I have ever done was in Patagonia. You fly into Santiago, Chile and from there you can fly on to Punta Arenas and take a bus to Torres del Paine. If you are adventurous you can also take a luxury bus from Santiago past the stunning volcanoes to Puerto Montt, one very lovely coastal town at the end of the Panamericana. From there take a boat down to Punta Arenas through the fiords and brave the waves. In Punta Arenas don’t forget to watch the cute little Magellan penguins hurrying from Click to continue »

San Francisco Stopover – Cheap Flights to Europe

Friday, February 4th, 2011

For those who don’t like to fly around the world via Los Angeles but want to book a flight to Europe via the USA San Francisco is a great stopover city. The airport is smaller than Los Angeles and somehow nicer all around. And then San Francisco is such an interesting place to visit. It’s best to stay in a nice downtown hotel such as the Carlton Hotel or the Holiday Inn Fisherman’s Wharf. From there you can…

Skiing in Utah – Powder Packages Airfares Hotels Car Rentals Ski Passes

Tuesday, February 1st, 2011

Utah is the place to be. There is so much so see. When you fly into Salt Lake City you can already see its exceptional location. There are mountains everywhere. Go to Salt Lake City in the summer and you will love its dry heat and the pleasant climate in the mountains all around. But get a rental car and drive out to Park City or to Alta and you will get a whole new perspective on the joys of skiing. The air is very dry – after all you are in a desert. That means that the snow is dry, too. Imagine powder wherever you go. Virgin slopes covered in powder snow, blue sky and very few skiers, that’s Utah. I was amazed at the easy Click to continue »

Westin Denarau Island Resort, Nadi Fiji

Friday, January 28th, 2011

I stayed at the Westin in Denarau before going on an island cruise in the Mamanukas. Absolutely loved this hotel. Best breakfast with lots of choices including selfmade vegetable juice and champagne. Also loved the atmosphere everywhere in the hotel and the beautiful lap pool in a lush tropical garden. Such tranquility. Nice rooms with very stylish bathroom. It is different from the other Denarau hotels because it retains the Fijian style with lots of wood etc. Click to continue »

Fiji Malolo Island Beach Resort, Mamanucas

Monday, January 24th, 2011

This is a truly Fijian experience: a resort on a beautiful white beach, turquoise-coloured water, coral reefs and coconut palm trees lining the beach. The bures are tastefully furnished in beautiful Fijian style, so that when you enter your bure you immediately feel at home and never want to leave again. This is real paradise. You can snorkel or go canoeing or sailing, or you just hang out on the beach and enjoy. Loved the restaurant up in the jungle and also the kids’ area. Reminded me of Tarzan and Jane and what an adventurous place for the kids. The service is good and the women are so great with the little ones, too. Not too far from Denarau, only about 2 hours on the ferry, and it is an awesome ride through the Mamanuca islands.

Fiji Mana Island Beach Resort

Monday, January 24th, 2011

Spent a night on Mana Island on an island hopper cruise.  Mana Island is very easy to reach from Denarau by ferry. Just a short ride and you are on Mana. The bures are quite nice and have some privacy. There are island bures and oceanfront. Nice outdoor showers. The food was very good and you can sit outside in the mild evenings and watch out over the water. The snorkeling was okay though it is tidal and you have to watch out for the sharp corals. Beautiful colorful fish everywhere and you can snorkel on both sides of the island. I also went up on a short walk onto the little hill from where you have nice views around all of Mana. Very beautiful wedding chapel with white beach in front and tropical surroundings. What a place to get married and spend your honeymoon. If you have a larger group it is well catered for and absolutely private. There is an airstrip so no problem to fly there if you are short of time. All in all very nice place and clear water to snorkel in.

Sydney Harbour Marriott AU$172 Stay3 Pay2

Monday, January 24th, 2011

Stayed 3 nights at the Sydney Harbour Marriott near the Opera House. We had a very nice room with city views. I recommend this Marriott (stay normally at Starwood hotels):  great Location – very good hotel.  Probably 4.5 stars.  I paid only 125 EUR (AU$172) per night (total: 375 EUR  for 3 nights incl. taxes).
I’ve booked a 3=2 deal thru viptrip but found it also online  –>>stay 3= pay 2<< (received a prepaid voucher – so no extra/hidden costs in Sydney at all!). Good hotel for my stopover in Australia.

Los Angeles Stopover

Friday, January 14th, 2011

A lot of flights from New Zealand to Europe go via Los Angeles and most people don’t care to stay there even for a day. But it sure is a fun city to spend a few days in. Hotels in the airport vicinity are quite reasonable. I have stayed at the Crowne Plaza once and that was very good. All hotels near the airport offer a free shuttle service. Recommendable are also the Sheraton Gateway Hotel and the Westin Los Angeles Airport. Click to continue »

Snorkeling at The Blue Lagoon – Fiji, Yasawas

Monday, January 10th, 2011

The Blue Lagoon lies in the Yasawas in Fiji. It is a beautiful place to go snorkeling. The water is very clear and the corals all shine in magnificent colours. There are millions of small but fascinating fish that all have different patterns that tell them apart. When i travelled there, I found so many different and  amazing things. There were always more interesting creatures to find in the calm sea. One of my favouites were a barracuda and some clownfish who were protecting their eggs.  It was really amazing experience and it was one of my favourite holiday places that i will never forget.

Kangaroo Island, Adelaide, South Australia – Visit!

Saturday, January 8th, 2011

A  few weeks ago I was in Adelaide and went to Kangaroo Island on a 3-day tour. Had an awesome time there. You can see kangaroos everywhere, of course. But not only that.  Driving around I saw koalas hanging in the trees, seals on the beach, and echidnas along the road – and they are so cute! The Remarkable Rocks are incredibly beautiful, with the red rock formations contrasting against the deep blue sea. Amazing history there, too, with the first settlers cut off from the mainland for months and being supplied over hundreds of steep steps up the cliff. Of course there is excellent hiking there in the Flinders Chase N.P.

I stayed in the Hotel Aurora Ozone in Kingscote, nice little hotel on the ocean front. Also recommendable is the K.I. Wilderness Retreat – comfort in the middle of nowhere. The most amazing hotel I have ever seen in my life however is the Southern Ocean Lodge – incredible location, tastefully done, worldclass views, amazing food. Pure luxury right in the wilderness with wildlife at your doorstep.

Beautiful North Side Surf Beaches – Oahu, Hawaii

Tuesday, January 4th, 2011

When we drove around Oahu to see all the sights of the Island we decided to have a quick break at a beach on the north side of Oahu. But once we all got into our swimming suits and went down to the water we found out that this wasn’t going to be a regular swim. The waves there were about 3-4 metres high which was huge for us. We had tons of fun bodysurfing and getting smashed around by the waves which was just an epic experience for me.  But this was not the highest these waves got we found out after. Because in the summer season these waves get to 6-8 metres high and surf competitions take place on beaches in that location. Even though the waves were not as big as they could get in winter. Back when I was there, they were big enough for me. I had so much fun in those waves and I think that it’s definitely a place to visit in Hawaii.
