Sunday, January 3, 2010 - Belize City, Belize: Welcome to Belize! As we exited the airport and wound our way through the narrow streets of the older parts of Belize City, our first impression was that of moldering wooden shanties lining the streets. Upon closer inspection it becomes apparent that these merely reflect a tropical existence on a hurricane-prone coast.

When we reached our hotel in the historic district, the Radisson Fort George and Marina Hotel,...

Monday, March 25, 2013 - En Route / Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea: We all converged on the city of Port Moresby from distant reaches of the planet for the same reason: to embark on an expedition to experience the culture, wildlife, and landscapes of Melanesia.

Quito, Ecuador

Field Report

Wednesday, October 9, 2013 - Quito, Ecuador: Wherever you were coming from, or where your flight originated, it’s a safe bet that when your plane made its descent into Quito, it didn’t have to descend as far as it originally climbed. This is because Quito sits at 9,350 feet, on the lower slopes of the volcano Pichincha. If you were near a window during that descent, your first image of Quito was of a whitewashed colonial-style city with few tall buildings, sprawling across...

Tuesday & Wednesday, September 30 & October 1, 2014 - Papeete, Tahiti / Embark Caledonian Sky / Rangiroa, Tuamotu Islands: After long flights over the Pacific, we took day rooms at the InterContinental Resort Tahiti for some much-needed rest. Once up, we relished views of the saw-toothed silhouette of the island of Moorea. In Polynesian, the name "Moorea" refers to a yellow lizard found on the island. After brunch, we boarded buses and began our tour of...

The following year the French arrived, led by Louis-Antoine de Bougainville, on his circumnavigation of the globe. Bougainville, in addition to having one of the most popular tropical flowers named after him, wrote extensively about Tahiti and its people. He described a utopian paradise and innocent, beautiful...

Wednesday, September 17, 2014 - Nadi, Viti Levu, Fiji / Lautoka / Embark Caledonian Sky: After a long flight across the Pacific, we arrived in Fiji. We enjoyed a morning at leisure, sleeping, strolling, or swimming at our hotel on the beach, the Westin Denarau Island Resort & Spa. Red-faced parrotbills were quite tame near the pool, hopping in the lawn and eating grass seeds, showing off their emerald and scarlet plumage. After lunch, we set out in buses to...

Sunday, September 15, 2013 - Broome, Australia / Embark Caledonian Sky: We converged on the far-away outpost of Broome from distant reaches of the planet for the same reason—to embark on an expedition to experience the culture, wildlife, and landscapes of Australia’s Kimberley region. Following breakfast at the hotel, our birdwatching group headed out for an introduction to the birds of the region. The shorelines around Broome are of international importance for the...
