Not only is Borneo one of the few places in the world to see orangutans in the wild, it’s also fantastic for seeing endangered Sun Bears, proboscis monkeys, pygmy elephants, and monitor lizards, among other wild species. I saw them all and more in the Malaysian State of Sabah, on the island of Borneo, and managed to capture video of them all, despite having to shoot from a rocking boat some of the time.

Thank you for taking me to Borneo via your video! Awesome!
You’re very welcome Izy. So happy you liked it!
Thanks, Barbara, for a wonderful glimpse into Borneo. I LOVE your blog.
Thank you so much Nancy! I wish I could express how much your comment meant to me. It made my day 🙂
I honestly admire how you lead your life and I wished I had the courage to do so. All the best
Hi Jutta: My initial reaction was to reply to you, saying that I really believe anyone can do what I’m doing. I don’t necessarily mean run a blog, but anyone can travel long term and earn a living while doing so. But then I read your other comment, that you cannot travel because your husband is severely ill. I am so sorry to hear this, but I believe there is a special place in heaven for such caring people like you.
I love the idea of a buddy system and how they raise these awesome creatures. Excellent video!
Thanks so much Ryan! Video is not a talent I ever cultivated. Took it up because I thought my readers would enjoy seeing video. But the quality of my editing was so bad for so long! I finally think I’m beginning to get a feel for it, so I appreciate your kind words.
I too thought the buddy system was intriguing.
