Nicaragua Diary

After 36 hours of traveling, I have finally arrived on Little Corn Island, Nicaragua. The (almost) last leg was with a short flight on a 12-seat “puddle jumper” from Managua to Big Corn – view over the pilot’s shoulder included – followed by a 1-hour..

CITY

Shanghai

At the beginning of November I had the opportunity to visit Shanghai for work – 24 years after my first visit in 1988. Needless to say, it is a completely different place today. Back then, I stayed in a 20-bed dormitory close to the Bund in what was then called the Pujiang Hotel.

Piranha Fishing in the Pantanal

“Just chase them away,” Laercio shouts from the car. We are on a little dirt road in the Brazilian Pantanal and I had got out to open a cattle gate. There is only one minor problem: blocking the gate are half a dozen caiman alligators, basking in the sun…

Taxi Brousse Extreme

We had been warned! The “road” hardly deserved the name, and the journey on the back of the pickup truck would be cramped and painful. But all the warnings we had heard and read failed to prepare us for how tough the ten hour journey for the 114km from Maroantsetra to Mananara would be…

The Vanilla Coast

Located in the remote tropical northeast of Madagascar, the Vanilla Coast is every bit as exotic as it sounds. Arriving on the twice-weekly flight from Tana (short for Antananarivo, the capital), we caught a whiff of vanilla, clove, and other exotic scents as soon as…
