  1. And here I go with Micronesia, a really remarkable set of islands, lost in the Pacific. I was mainly looking for birds, of course. I missed a number of the endemics, to my great regret, but I did what I could, considering I was with my family and couldn't just go off birding from dawn till dusk...
    Still, I encountered some very nice birds, which have been seen by very few Westerners :)

    1. Such modesty for what is an epic achievement. Not just a series of awesome endemics, also introducing an entirely new country! Posted 4 months ago
      1. Haha well like São Tomé last year, I was keen on us going to a reaally out of the way place for our annual family trip. I think I succeded ;) Posted 4 months ago
        1. You did! Just for fun, I sometimes zoom in a lot on Google Maps and then cross the oceans. To stumble upon obscure islands so absurdly remote. And of course, usually people do live there. I wonder what that must be like, to live in a place outside any continent, not known to even exist by most of the world's population. Posted 4 months ago
          1. Well even for us tourists, it was quite remarkable, that feeling of isolation.
            Unfortunately, it has been spoiled by globalization, and they are severely dependent on shitty imported food, which is really depressing. On one island, they ran out of bananas while we were there!

            1. Or Colombia, with a world of tropical fruit in the backyard, yet they import shitty apples and peers from Europe!?! Posted 4 months ago
              1. I know, right! You people have mangoes, passion fruit, lulo and guanabana! Why on Earth would you ever want to eat an apple?? Posted 4 months ago
