Come with!

In 2021 I travel to Borneo with Live the Journey. With rainforests older than the Amazon, and home to nose monkeys and orangutans, it is one of the most biodiverse areas on earth.

It’s cramped, hot and wet – soaking wet – because the island receives more than 2,000 mm of rain a year.

Every morning – every day – one is overwhelmed by the strangeness of everything around you.

Butterflies as big as birds, more than 2,000 species of orchids and super-rare birds like the “Frogmouth”.

On the Kinabatagan River we sail upstream, between overhanging vegetation with snakes, nose monkeys, fireflies and bearded pigs.

Borneo is a must on the life dream list of all travelers, as the rainforests are quickly being replaced by palm oil plantations.

Come along and experience one of the natural wonders of our planet.
