Mahabalipuram – Proceed with Caution

We went to Mahabalipuram after spending the morning with the Irula from the Madras Crocodile Bank on their snake walk.  We had hired a taxi for the day and even though we were tired and thought about just going back to the hotel he suggested we head over to Mahabalipuram.  On the one hand I […]

Berlin Street Art with Alternative Berlin

When we first read about the Alternative Berlin twilight tour we were very interested but because of the amount of mystery we were both reluctant and further intrigued but in the end we were both so glad that we decided to take a plunge in to the dark!

Visit the Beautiful ZooParc de Tregomeur

Visit Cleland Wildlife Park

If you come to Adelaide and have a few days to spare, make sure that Cleland Wildlife Park makes an appearance on your itinerary.  Cleland is certainly not as large as the Adelaide Zoo, and due to the obvious difference in funding between the two zoos, this is also maybe not as “advanced” as the main city […]

Fossil Hunting at Samphire Hoe

Samphire hoe is a nature reserve just west of Dover, and whilst its a lovely place to go for a walk and see adders, there’s more to it, if you head out of the western end and walk a little further along the beach.  Bring some tools with you, and have a go at fossil […]
