Out & About: My Top Travel Experiences In The Great Outdoors

Sometimes there’s no better feeling than getting out and about in a country and doing something active in the fresh air and the great outdoors. Often it’s the best way to get the feel for a place, and leaves you with memories you’re not going to forget any time soon. I’ve been lucky enough to have had many incredible once-in-a-lifetime outdoor travel experiences over the years and thought I’d do a rundown of my 5 most memorable.


1. Boating and wildlife spotting down the Kinabatangan river in Borneo

Kind of like your classic safari, except instead of in a 4×4, you are on a wooden boat on the river, and instead of spotting lions and elephants, you’re on the lookout for Proboscis monkeys and alligators. With a local tour guide and two safaris a day (both very early morning and late afternoon when the wildlife is most active), it’s truly incredible to see this wildlife, a few species of which are now endangered, in their natural rainforest environment.

An incredible day out cruising around the spectacular Bruny Island off the coast of Tasmania, we were lucky enough to spot pods of dolphins, seals sunning themselves on the rocks, albatrosses flying overhead and all with a beautiful backdrop of cliffs, caves, rugged coastline and deep blue waters.

Mountain trekking, traditional dance performances from the local villagers, Vietnamese cuisine, and chatting to the local women, my time in Sapa, a small mountain village in North Vietnam, will always remain one of the most unique, memorable and rewarding travel experiences I’ve had.

5. Sleeping under the stars and trekking Uluru, Kings Canyon and Kata Tjuta in the Australian outback

It will be hard to compete with the experience of sleeping on the ground and under the stars with my ‘swag’ as the only protection against the native dingoes and whatever other wildlife was around…The Outback is one of those places that you have to experience yourself in order to understand its beauty and uniqueness.
