Kangaroo Island, Australia

Kangaroo Island is located of the coast of southern Australia. The nearest major city is Adelaide and is easily accessible by ferry or plane. If you are taking a rental car to the island by ferry be sure to make a reservation. I have listed the ferry service contacts at the end of the article. The Island boasts 318 miles of coastline and 1680 square miles of very diverse terrain. A population of 4259 friendly laidback residents gives the Island an atmosphere of a sleepy small town. Every time we passed a local driver coming the opposite direction they would wave, something I am definitely not accustomed to here in NYC.

Shanklands: Rainforest Eco-Resort, Guyana

We left our hotel in Georgetown and traveled though the city by cab. The drive was very surreal. We saw cows standing next to pumps at a gas station. We crossed the worlds longest floating bridge, which seemed to be metal plates not joined together in any particular way, held up by various floating debris. At one point we drove along the dykes that separate the ocean from the city. Apparently the Dutch only like to make settlements below sea level. We also saw farmers drying their rice on the shoulder of the road.

Kaieteur Falls, Guyana

We left Shanklands eco-resort and traveled up the Essequibo river by boat. We arrived at an incredibly small airstrip. Our boat captain dropped us off and then sped away. One thing about traveling in Guyana is that the people are not very forth coming with information on itineraries. Although we had no problems, being dropped off at a jungle airstrip where the only structure is basically a bus stop with a windsock on top can be a little disconcerting. We waited a little while until an incredibly small plane arrived.

Moody’s Namena, Fiji

Photograph by Eric Scott

Moody’s Namena is a one-resort island, owned and operated by Tom and Joan Moody. The resort consists of six bures that sit a top the islands cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Each bure or Fijian cottage is an hexagon with double doors on three walls that lead onto a wrap around porch. So, whether you are on the deck or laying in your king size bed you always have a fantastic view, and at night you have the ocean waves to lull you to sleep.
