Arnhem Land Community Project Travel

It was such a great trip. Really rewarding to clean up the beautiful beaches up there - we found lots of ghost nets, which made us all feel glad to be there so we could get rid of them (didn't find any trapped turtles but saw lots of turtle tracks on the beaches) - and to hang out with the Dhimurru rangers and learn a bit about Yolngu culture. ....weather was sunny most days, and warm but not too hot - we even went swimming in the sea most days.

Sweden: Archipelago Cycle Adventure

Explore by bike Stockholm's southern archipelago with its more than 24,000 islands stretching 80km east of Stockholm to the Baltic Sea. With their abundant nature reserves, colourful wooden houses and sandy beaches, the islands offer exceptional cycling opportunities particularly in summer when the island life is buzzing. From Tyresta National Park where moose and deer roam freely, travel between the islands to take in the views, visit historic landmarks, swim or kayak and hike forest trails. Returning to Stockholm by boat, watch the transformation from uninhabited islands to the urban clusters of the city. At night stay in atmospheric hotels often with superb views over the islands and housed in historic buildings.
