Lokobe Park in Nosy Be, Madagascar

Madagascar is the kind of place where you stop in for a visit and have NO IDEA what you are getting yourself into. It’s a challenging place to plan to visit, and there isn’t THAT much information available online. That’s how I found myself as one of four gringos...

Hiking Nosy Komba, Madagascar

When David and I get an invitation to go hiking, we just can’t turn it down. Our friends Kimi and Trevor on Slow Flight invited us to hike to the top of Nosy Komba with them just two days after we officially arrived into Madagascar. The morning we were due to set off, Kimi...

Hiking the Copolia Trail in Mahe, Seychelles

We love a hike with a great view, and thankfully there’s plenty of elevation in Seychelles to keep us entertained.  We arrived on our boat to cruise the Seychelles islands and spent almost three months there. While in Seychelles, we welcomed our first set of guests onboard,...
