My passion for travel and adventures are fueled by my curiosity for people, culture and seeing a way of life different to my own taking in every experience with an open heart and mind.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Malaysian Borneo - Sabah and Sarawak."

How did you get involved in travel?

"I started my career running expeditions for school groups and gap year students in Sabah with a UK based company. I've long been passionate about providing memorable experiences for my guests. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"My most memorable and unique travel experiences was from a trip to Myanmar staying with local tribes and viewing the beautiful ‘Bagan’ from a hot air balloon ride at sunrise. Embarking on a soul searching journey, I moved to Vietnam to immerse myself with the locals, learning the language, culture and how to survive the roads on a scooter. "

Borneo trip, Malaysia - Sep 10 - Sep 10, 2017

Traveler: Lola M. - Local specialist: Yanti Saman

Our guide was well informed but sometimes didn't seem very interested in answering our questions. He was a bit impatient when we wanted to wait to see animals. Otherwise, we loved it!

Hi Lola,

So thank you for leaving your review, it is much appreciated. Should you decide to come back to Borneo again in the near future, we would look forward to having you!
