Morella, a castle with a village

It was the afternoon of a hot day in early September in PenĂ­scola, we had two Orxates in front of the beach and had a rest while recovering from the heavy humid environment. The day was getting to an end but before we still had to drive eighty kilometres through mountain roads, from the mediterranean coast to one thousand metres high. We were getting closer to Morella when the sky got suddenly completely dark.

The Garden of Eden (Video)

Once in Borneo we took a short flight to Mulu. Only six people where in that flight that took us to one of the most pristine jungles in the world. Mulu, with more than 600 km of cave passages and all kind of forests is considered a World Heritage Site. Its remote place and protection makes it the best place for an adventure travel.

In our second day in Mulu we went to the Garden of Eden, a closed valley only reachable after hiking 2 km through the biggest underground passage in the world (The Deer Cave). You will find all the details of our adventure in the Garden of Eden in the following video. No music, just real sounds. Enjoy!

Narbonne: food and history in the south of France

We’ve already explained it in this blog. The first half of 2019 has been very intensive for us (with a move, our wedding and our honeymoon!), but fortunately at the end of February we could save a weekend for a French winter break. 🙂 The south of France has a lot of interesting sites and the best thing is that we can reach them with a few hours driving from Barcelona.

This was DĂ­dac’s first visit to Narbonne, but I (Laura) had already been there some years ago. At that time, I didn’t have the chance to visit the Abbey of Fontfroide, a Cistercian monastery that has been a reference for some other monasteries in the south of Europe. We love monastic architecture, so we couldn’t wait to visit the area.

Turtle island: saving lives

We slept in the Four Points by Sheraton in Sandakan after two short flights in the previous day: the first one from the remote jungle of Mulu to Kota Kinabalu, and the second one from KK to Sandakan. This is from west Borneo and Sarawak state to east Borneo and Sabah state of Malaysia. Sandakan is the base for tours going to Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre, to Sukau Wildlife Sanctuary and to Turtle island.

Next destination: Borneo!

There is a reason why we are not writing so often in the past months: our wedding. We are preparing everything and it takes so much time that we cannot find the moment to write in the blog. And the wedding has something associated which is the perfect gift for a traveling couple like us: the honeymoon. It’s been a long time since we decided to spend our honeymoon in Borneo but we have not written about it yet. We will depart in four weeks to the 3rd biggest and the wildest island in the world.
