Experiencing Australia's Kimberley

Visiting Australia is surely at the top of most traveler’s bucket list. But with so much to see and do, planning a trip “Down Under” can be daunting. Surprisingly, the remote Kimberley region is often overlooked, although it is known to many Australians as one of the most remote and mysterious regions of the country. International Expeditions’ Senior Art Director, Charlie Boyd recently had a chance to...

Explore the natural and cultural wonders of Indochina
July 2, 2018
Blog Post

Indochina– the geographical area of Southeast Asia that’s bordered by India to the west and China to the north– offers a melting pot of indigenous cultures.

Comprised of Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia, and Singapore, this area was deeply influenced by its neighbors, as well as by French colonizers. However, the name of the region didn’t originate until the early 1800s.

When you travel to Indochina today, there are an array of deep and rich cultural,...

As travelers, we always tell ourselves: “It’ll never happen to me.” It’s a comforting thought! But thousands of travelers each year experience some kind of trouble overseas, whether that be dealing with lost luggage, last-minute trip cancellations, or something more serious which requires emergency medical treatment.

Yet still many travelers question if travel insurance is worth it; some people dismiss the importance of travel insurance and think of it as an...

Earlier this year, we embarked on a brand-new journey to the Philippines. It was one of my absolute favorite trips so far and I can’t wait to return in 2016! To get you as excited as I am, here are my top 10 favorite experiences from the Philippines:

October, 2012

With the largest concentrations of penguins, seals, and albatross to be found anywhere on the planet, South Georgia has been dubbed, “The Serengeti of the Southern Ocean.” And, while large birdlife usually takes center stage on South Georgia, the island was once a thriving small-bird community as well, comprised of storm petrels, prions, blue petrels, and pipits. However, with the introduction of rats by whalers and sealers, the small-bird population is being devastated...

Pennant-tailed Nightjar
August 24, 2012
Blog Post

Prior to the trip, I emailed Jonathan Rossouw and mentioned that my target bird for Uganda was the pennant-tailed nightjar. This is a pretty tough get. A well camouflaged night bird, it is nearly impossible to see during the day unless you step on one and, of course, it is tough to see in the dark at night. Rossouw replied: "Prayer is the only answer, but I will do my damnedest to put you in the right place so that if our prayers are answered, you will see the bird." We got to the...
