From kayaking and trekking in sanctuaries and national parks she falls in love with Sarawak and Sabah -she also loves the music at the Rainforest World Music and Borneo Jazz Festivals along the way. Food features high on her interests but of course its the animals that draw us to the region: orangutans, endemic Proboscis monkeys, the naughty macaque, the Bornean gibbon, slow loris, and she even sees a clouded leopard beside a palm oil plantation: they all feature in this small book.The uncomfortable truth about travel is, bloggers, like this writer, are helping destroy the very world we long to see and protect. Its a double-edged sword, we need to love it to protect it and to love it we want to see it and read about it. The kiwitravelwriter certainly loves to travel and this book will encourage both armchair and actual travellers to travel, and to tread as softly as possible. After reading this, Borneo will be high on your bucket list.
