Impressions of Muscat

OMAN | Sat, 23 Mar 2024 | By krodin | Views [58] | Comments [1]

Impressions of Muscat. (FYI - I can't get the photos to load,sorry!) For years, I have wanted to visit Oman, but the timing was never quite right.  This year I decided that waiting any longer to make my way to Australia and New Zealand was nonsense ... Read more >

Winding Down Our Oz Odyssey

AUSTRALIA | Sat, 10 Feb 2024 | By graynomadsusa | Views [224]

THE BEST PLACES TO STAY AREN’T ALWAYS at the beach. Tim’s AirBnB in the bush-town of Wandandian is idyllic; green fields, towering eucalyptus, chickens, horses—even Soxy, the affectionate English Chocolate Lab. I wish every host put ... Read more >

Walk Around Nauru

NAURU | Tue, 6 Feb 2024 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [221]

There aren’t many countries where you can walk around the entire country in less than a day. In fact, Nauru may be the only one. Even in Vatican City it’s not possible to walk all the way around (although it’s likely possible to walk ... Read more >

Luanda Highlights

ANGOLA | Mon, 19 Jun 2023 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [213]

Luanda gets an unfairly bad rep, and most people who criticise Angola's capital have never been here. Cranes and skyscrapers dominate the skyline but there are more highlights and standout sights than in many other capital cities. The other day after ... Read more >

Australia Day—Always Was Always Will Be

AUSTRALIA | Sat, 27 Jan 2024 | By graynomadsusa | Views [212]

OFFICIALLY AUSTRALIA DAY CELEBRATES the day Australia was “discovered,” January 26, 1788—roughly the equivalent of Columbus Day in the US. Indigenous Australians vehemently disagree—they have been in Australia for 60,000 years ... Read more >

Lion's Head

SOUTH AFRICA | Sat, 27 May 2023 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [210]

An absolutely gorgeous day it was today. Cape Town is up there with a place like Washington, D.C.; I can spend a few weeks here and still not be bored. There are many great hikes in the area. The two countries I've prepared for most in terms of safety ... Read more >

It's the Journey, Not the Destination

AUSTRALIA | Thu, 1 Feb 2024 | By graynomadsusa | Views [209]

SOMEONE FOLLOWING OUR ZIG-ZAG ROUTE might think we suffer from terminal Attention Deficit Disorder. Yes, it would have made more sense to come directly from Bairnsdale to Mallacoota near the Victoria-NSW border. But Mallacoota is a popular holiday destination ... Read more >

Bateman's Bay

AUSTRALIA | Mon, 5 Feb 2024 | By graynomadsusa | Views [209]

BATEMAN’S BAY IS ABOUT HALFWAY BETWEEN Mallacoota and Sydney. It also happens to be about the only place along the South Coast with halfway affordable lodging at this time of year. Our AirBnB is a bit shabby but works as a base for exploring South ... Read more >

Isle of Phosphate

NAURU | Sun, 4 Feb 2024 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [207]

Nauru! Another place where I’ve had to explain to everyone where it is. A tiny potato-shaped island 42 kilometres south of the Equator, Nauru is one of the smallest and least-visited countries in the world. Phosphate is what originally made Nauru ... Read more >

Adventures in Paradise

VANUATU | Fri, 16 Feb 2024 | By graynomadsusa | Views [190]

THE WIND PICKED UP ON FRIDAY EVENING and was blowing a gale by the time we arrived at the Majestic Princess. Circular Quay is a refreshing change from the commercial ports where cruise ships often dock and we spent the afternoon watching as ferries ... Read more >


NEW ZEALAND | Tue, 9 May 2023 | By nomad_kiwis | Views [179]

For my birthday we went to Rarotonga. It happened because Jetstar sent me an email saying I had a credit that had to be used within a couple of months! I panicked a bit and thought of a place and booked our tickets. I have always wanted to go there as ... Read more >

Geocaching Day Tour

BERMUDA | Thu, 4 May 2023 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [175]

It's my final full day in Bermuda, and I'm always really hard on myself when I set a goal. 100 geocaches I wanted to find in Bermuda in a week here, and I'm leaving tomorrow. Until today I'd searched for over a hundred but had only found 63. Last night ... Read more >

Taking on Angola

ANGOLA | Fri, 16 Jun 2023 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [171]

It looks like a creature struggling to be accepted but reaching out and asking for a hug or a handshake; that's what Angola is shaped like. It is one of my favourite country shapes. "Why would you want to go to Angola?" one may wonder. Firstly, it's ... Read more >

Bermuda, Ahoy!

BERMUDA | Sat, 29 Apr 2023 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [170]

"You can go to heaven if you want to. I'd rather stay in Bermuda." -Mark Twain For the first time I've taken a journey where geocaching is my dominant goal as there are a lot of them in Bermuda. Upon landing yesterday on my Delta flight, I immediately ... Read more >

A Zoo in Reverse

NAMIBIA | Thu, 13 Jul 2023 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [164]

The Africa of my childhood imagination came to be today. With a private driver I was off into Etosha National Park, which is a land of thousands of animals that are symbolic of Africa. Shortly after entering through the Namutoni Gate, the first animal ... Read more >

Centre of Angola

ANGOLA | Tue, 4 Jul 2023 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [162]

Leaving Huambo behind, I wanted to take a trip to the geographical centre of Angola. A minibus would get me to Kuito which, from what I saw from the bus window, looks like an attractive town. Getting to Camacupa (sometimes spelled "Kamacupa") involved ... Read more >


BERMUDA | Tue, 2 May 2023 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [162]

The water screams with electric blue. Pastel-coloured homes gleam serenity upon the most jaded traveller. Wind drifts across your face with that calm feeling. Bermuda is truly a magical place! Juan de Bermudez, who discovered Bermuda in 1505, is who ... Read more >

The Bridges of Madison County

USA | Fri, 5 May 2023 | By graynomadsusa | Views [161]

A CONFESSION, “BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY” is one of my favorite Chick-flicks. So when we saw a sign for the “actual” bridges, we just had to see where Clint and Meryl fell in love. Only six of the original sixteen bridges remain ... Read more >

Bottom of Africa

SOUTH AFRICA | Thu, 25 May 2023 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [161]

Cape Town on a one-way ticket...yessir! After 2 1/2 months in the USA visiting family and spending the time with my Dad, I'm eager to be out exploring the world again. I'll be with all of them again in September when my sister, Ashley gets married. My ... Read more >

Pedras Negras

ANGOLA | Sat, 24 Jun 2023 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [158]

I’m still wondering…how the hell was I the only foreign visitor at Kalandula Falls? If it were Victoria Falls I’d be jockeying for space with many other visitors and I likely couldn’t fly Juliett (my drone). Yesterday I ended ... Read more >

Questioned and... Appreciated

ANGOLA | Sun, 18 Jun 2023 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [155]

Angola doesn't get many visitors. Most foreigners who are here are working, not taking pictures. Police, soldiers, and the average local wonder why someone would travel from all the way around the world to take a photo of a building. Today ... Read more >

Quedas de Kalandula

ANGOLA | Thu, 22 Jun 2023 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [149]

Luanda isn't as bad or as expensive as some people make it out to be, and I certainly felt safer walking round Luanda than round Cape Town or even Windhoek. However, I didn't come to Angola to spend all of my time in Luanda. After quickly arranging ... Read more >

Trekking the Larapinta Trail

AUSTRALIA | Sun, 23 Jul 2023 | By welcometomyworld | Views [145]

Trekking the Larapinta Trail- This was my first solo multiday hike trekking The Larapinta trail in the West Macdonnell Ranges on Arrernte Country.   Day 1 – Serpentine Gorge to Ellery Creek North  First day on the trail and was ... Read more >

Anikka and Me

AUSTRALIA | Tue, 15 Aug 2023 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [143]

Two of the most beautiful days of my life happened yesterday and today. I've mentioned her in several previous stories and I'm writing about her again. Anikka "Miss Double-K" is the absolute dearest lady in my life. When I arrived yesterday I ran with ... Read more >

Hell Creek Dino Dig—Part 2

USA | Wed, 19 Jul 2023 | By graynomadsusa | Views [137]

NOW THAT THE CAT’S OUT OF THE BAG—or rather the bones are almost out of the ground—it’s time to tell the real reason for our Denver Museum Hell Creek Road Trip.                 ... Read more >
