Watching Orangutans at Semenggoh Nature Reserve

Hello, everyone!

I’ve been procrastinating to continue my stories during Borneo trip for a lot of reasons. Somehow I’ve got the number of tasks in my job increased, and I think I’ve met my future husband. I know it sounds ridiculous, but seriously though. I think I have.

Okay, let’s move on… Because I really want to finish the series of my Borneo trip as soon as possible, only to realize that I’ve still got so many topics to schedule for the posts.

So, if there’s anything you should consider doing while in Borneo, I think it’s gonna be to see orangutans. According to this article, there are only two places left in the world where orangutans can be found in the wild, and it is only in the northern parts of Sumatra in Indonesia or throughout the island of Borneo.

What You Could Get in Izmir for $10 – Some Things That Also Make Me Want to Go Back to the City!

Hello, everyone! 😀

The second Wednesday of 2019, and my correspondence with Lindsay from My Trampoline Kids took me back to summer 2010 instead. Time flies so fast that I didn’t even notice that it’s almost 9 years already ever since I left Izmir.

Top 9 Active Vacation Destinations

Sometimes, we need a break. A proper break, from our lives and stresses, but also from activity. We need to lie by a pool for hours at a time, sipping cocktails and reading easy books. We need slow walks across the beach and afternoons in the spa. We need time to do as little as possible to recharge our batteries and catch up on our rest.

Sometimes, it’s good to be lazy, to chill out and to give ourselves time to relax and unwind. These kinds of vacations are ideal after a busy period of work, or when you’ve got a lot on your mind, and you need to take some time just to think. You can come home feeling refreshed and ready to get back into things.

But, these kinds of a trip aren’t for everyone all of the time. Sometimes relaxing by the beach all of the time feels like a waste. When you’ve got energy to burn you might want to spend your time being more active. Some people even find it easier to clear their minds when their bodies are moving. They find it easier to think and to sort through their thoughts when they are moving, seeing new sites and enjoying all that the world has to offer.
