Things To Do In The Solomon Islands!

You know that place that looks like David Attenborough has visited for the first time, that no one else has? Well, the Solomon Islands sort of feels like that. And I really don’t want to tell too many people about it because if it appears on a popular travel show, then I’ve stuffed up the […]

Indoor Skydiving – Wind Tunnel Madness Now on TripAdvisor!

It’s thrill seeking time again! This time, it’s thanks to TripAdvisor – they asked me if I was interested in their¬†TripMaximizer campaign to show off the ‘Things To Do’ part of their enormous website. Yes, another perk of being a Z grade internet celebrity! The TripMaximizer campaign is about highlighting that trips, accommodation and experiences […]

Solomon Islands People Pics from the ‘Hapi’ Isles!

With any place in the world, the best thing about a country is it’s people. Once again, the people of the Solomon Islands proved this to me with their warmth, humour and happiness, like other places in the South Pacific. I found they were a little bit shy and reserved at first – but once […]

Battle of Guadalcanal – An ”Open Air” Museum!

One theme involving travel around the world is visiting the site of famous battles and wars throughout the years. I reckon the best thing about a history lesson is going to the place where a famous event actually happened. This makes you appreciate what actually went on and gives you a point of reference – […]

The Best World War 2 Museum Ever!

It’s museum time! But this is a museum with a difference. I’ve been to a few museums which are a little bit different than the most famous ones like the Louvre. Places like the International Spy Museum in Washington D.C, the Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg, South Africa, and the Robert Louis Stevensen Museum in Samoa. […]

How To Climb A Coconut Tree!

Let’s face it. When we were all kids before the internet came (long before digital times), we all used to try and climb the biggest tree we could find and climb up all the way to the top! That’s easy when you have well positioned branches that help you get there. But what if you […]

John F Kennedy History and Accomplishments – the World War 2 version

Here’s one of those stories that not many people know about, but it’s one of those things that probably changed the course of history! And it involves the life of one of the United States’ most celebrated presidents – John F Kennedy. It’s actually a pretty interesting tale of how he managed to cheat death […]

Skull Island – a Headhunter Confronter!

Here’s something a bit out there that’s a tad spooky, freakish and a little macabre. However, it’s worth a look to see how things were done in the past. It’s a place called Skull Island – and you’ll see the rather obvious name in the photos below. And I’m¬†not talking about the King Kong movie […]

World War 2 Jeeps. Some are still going!

Here’s one for the automotive buffs out there! Ever get annoyed that your car is a lemon that doesn’t last anywhere near as long as it should? Or that maybe it breaks down just after your warranty has expired? Well, cry and weep as you’re about to to come across a vehicle that’s been going […]

How to Eat Betel Nut – And Not Vomit!

I really love travelling because I like checking out all of the things that are different to my home country. That extends to trying what the locals get into. Even if it might seem a bit strange to your Western traditions. Actually, for the vast majority of the time, having a go at trying something […]
