Traveling in the Maldives

Traveling in the Maldives

For the average traveler, there's one way of commuting in the Maldives; the Maldivian way. My work takes me quite a few times to the Maldives. The plus side is that I get to sleep in really comfy beds. The down side is getting around. So I thought I'd share my experience which may give [...]

Fresh Water Dolphins in Kratie, Cambodia

This was without a doubt, the highlight of my trip to the old Khmer Empire. Confession: I haven't yet gone dolphin watching in Sri Lanka which is more or less one of the "big fives" of the island - but now I have seen fresh water dolphins instead - and what a beautiful sight it [...]

Long weekends in Sri Lanka are a plenty and locals make ultimate use of them. The city goes quiet, hotels get full. Families, friends and loved ones are off somewhere in some part of this dynamic little world of ours, having the time of their lives. Last weekend, so did we! My father bought himself [...]

Where the Dutch Ruled – Galle, Sri Lanka

It was a sunny Sunday morning we decided...road trip! We took the Southern Expressway to Galle, one of the main cities in southern Sri Lanka. About an hour's drive later, the smooth asphalt strips gave way to the known cobble-stoned ways of the town. Mustard-yellow and the Dutch emblem Renowned to be a major port [...]
