There’s never been a better time to explore Sarawak. Between their award-winning annual Rainforest World Music Festival in June and unparalleled year-round outdoor adventure, this Malaysian destination is bursting with culture, flavor, and activity.
Lakes and streams teem with brown trout, pike, catfish, and carp. Rare herbs and mushrooms grow in this region and make plant identification a great way to spend the afternoon. Aside from the natural wonders, the friendly hosts who welcome visitors from around the world make this an especially memorable place. Here, folklore and customs are very much alive and offer an extra special perspective into the culture of Serbia. Plus, the food is delicious.
My travels have taken me near and far these past few years. The top of Australia’s Sydney Harbor Bridge at sunset, swimming with wild dolphins off the shores of the Galapagos Islands, and most recently mountain biking to a remote waterfall in the mountains of Colombia. But what makes travel so special isn’t just epic destinations or experiences—it’s the people and cultures who bring them to life. For this, there is one place that stands out in my memory. Ponta do Ouro, Mozambique.
