I was a teenager in my late 40's

PHILIPPINES | Mon, 14 Nov 2022 | By ritchiebasilio | Views [29] | Comments [1]

Looking back at those memories from when I was still in my teens and watching these two youthful, hyperbikers in action, I remember asking myself, 32 years ago, "How would I be then if I am almost at my 50s?" Many things come to me when I think about ... Read more >

Sea of Rippling Waters

NEW ZEALAND | Wed, 9 Nov 2022 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [27]

Four of the NZ Great Walks I've completed, so I've set out to complete my goal of walking at least five (eventually, I want to walk all of them). Meaning "sea of rippling waters" in Maori, Lake Waikaremoana is a spectacular lake. Stocked up on stuff ... Read more >

Rio de Janeiro

BRAZIL | Wed, 9 Nov 2022 | By graynomadsusa | Views [17]

WE DECIDED THAT A FEW DAYS IN RIO after the birding trip would give us a chance to rest up and regain control of our lives. We stayed at the Windsor California Hotel in Copacabana, an ideal choice with the best breakfast I’ve had in Brazil. The ... Read more >

Sonargaon

BANGLADESH | Mon, 7 Nov 2022 | By krodin | Views [43] | Comments [1]

Sonargaon After the Central Bangladesh tour mostly north and west of Dhaka, I decided to take a day trip to Sonargaon, 30 miles SE of the capital. We left at 7:30 to avoid some of the traffic. The fog in the city was so dense that the sky wasn’... Read more >

Central Bangladesh: Full of Contrasts

BANGLADESH | Mon, 7 Nov 2022 | By krodin | Views [33]

Central Bangladesh – Full of Contrasts I wasn’t sure what to expect on my tour to visit ancient Hindu and Buddhist sites through Central Bangladesh. As I made my way around, I was struck by the contrasting images confronting me. ... Read more >

Serra Cańastra and the Brazilian Merganser

BRAZIL | Thu, 3 Nov 2022 | By graynomadsusa | Views [9]

HAVING CHECKED OFF ALL THE TARGET SPECIES, we moved our vigil from the rainforests of southeastern Brazil to the grassland savannas around Cańastra National Park. We broke up another long drive with pee-breaks, lunch and a stop at a park in Belo Horizonte ... Read more >

Algulhus Negras National Park

BRAZIL | Wed, 2 Nov 2022 | By graynomadsusa | Views [15]

ALGULHUS NEGRAS NATIONAL PARK has some of the highest peaks in southern Brazil. The drive took us up to 7000 feet elevation on a truly terrible road several hours from Hotel do Ypâ and required a 4WD, not our luxury van. We crammed into the only ... Read more >

Dhaka

BANGLADESH | Wed, 2 Nov 2022 | By krodin | Views [32]

Dhaka I had wanted to come to Bangladesh for a couple of reasons: firstly, I know nothing about the country as a country, and secondly, there are a number of ancient Hindu and Buddhist sacred sites in this predominantly Muslim country, and I wanted ... Read more >

Itatiaia National Park— Hotel do Ypâ

BRAZIL | Tue, 1 Nov 2022 | By graynomadsusa | Views [16]

CHANGES TO THE ITINERARY MUST BE UNANIMOUS—unless all the target birds have been seen. So when Andres asked if we would be willing to forego the scheduled four-hour detour back to the steamy coast and then through Rio just to see another antwren ... Read more >

Giant's Playground

NEW ZEALAND | Sun, 30 Oct 2022 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [30]

The Roaring Forties pounded their windy fury this morning as I woke up, and I sure wouldn't want to be flying Juliett (my drone) today. A lot I had planned today yet all sorts of things would throw a spanner in my plans, and I know to absolutely never ... Read more >

How Many Ants Could an Antbird Eat if an Antbird Could Eat Ants?

BRAZIL | Sun, 30 Oct 2022 | By graynomadsusa | Views [21]

NOT ALL OF THE BIRDS IN BRAZIL are as amazing and colorful as hummingbirds, trogons, tanagers and toucans. Nor are they as easily spotted. Take “antbirds,” for instance, a group of small, dull-colored birds that skulk around on the shady ... Read more >

Misty Skies

NEW ZEALAND | Sat, 29 Oct 2022 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [12]

"Misty Skies" is what Rekohu means in Moriori, and it was misty and foul this morning. The wind dictates the shapes of trees here, as I've noticed a few oddly shaped trees. I know I mentioned the trees in my most recent story, but I can't stop ... Read more >

NEPAL | Fri, 28 Oct 2022 | By krodin | Views [47]

Beginning of the Trek to Tengboche Monastery  Tengboche is perhaps the most important monastery in the Solo Khumbu region. The lama at the monastery has traditionally been the person to bless those who attempt to climb the sacred mountain Sagarmatha, ... Read more >
