In May of 2010, Calvin started The Monsoon Diaries as his personal travel blog where he would post daily updates to let the world (and his mother) know he was okay. As his readership expanded, a large humble following of good people asked if they could join on his adventures.

So what began with a trip for a few friends now has blossomed 5 years later into the popularly recognized travel style known as monsooning, and has featured on TEDx, The Huffington Post, USA Today, National Geographic, Business Insider, and Rachel Maddow. Every few months Calvin himself, and some of his most dedicated repeat monsooners, will lead scores of international young-at-heart travelers on their premier expeditions around the world.

Take a look at any of the offered trips below and sign up even if you’re just curious about travel; we will take care of the rest!

Winter 2017

In the winter of 2017, we plan to tick off the continent that has long eluded us: Australia.

Although our 2014 trip to East-Timor Leste counts as a visit to Oceania and thus ensuring that we’ve been to all 7 continents, we all know that doesn’t hold us up to snuff until we’ve been to the mainlands of Australia and New Zealand. So come join us on a dream trip of a lifetime as we start our trip by celebrating New Year’s Eve in Sydney before heading off to visit the Great Barrier Reef at Cairns. Then it’s off to see the enigmatic Ayers Rock (aka “Uluru”) in Alice Springs to finish off our week in Australia.

For week 2 we begin north in Auckland, New Zealand from where we’ll take a quintessential road trip southwards, visiting Rotorua, Wellington, Christchurch and Queenstown along the way. Then we cap off 2 epic weeks with a visit to one of the most photogenic and beautiful places on the planet: Milford Sound.

  • December 30-January 2: Sydney, Australia
  • January 2-5: Cairns, Australia & The Great Barrier Reef
  • January 5-6: Alice Springs, Australia & Ayers Rock
  • January 6-8: Sydney, Australia

  • January 13-15: Queenstown, New Zealand
  • January 15: Milford Sound
  • January 15-16: Queenstown, New Zealand

How do I pay?

A 30% down payment is needed to secure your spot on the trip. We accept credit cards, cash (in person), mailed check, PayPal, Chase Quickpay, Square Cash, or Venmo.

What if I have dietary restrictions?

Let us know if you have any dietary restrictions beforehand and we can totally accommodate.

What are accommodations like?

Boutique, top-end hostels, or boutique hotels all with running hot water, good people, and great amenities.

What days should I book my flights to arrive?

Depends on what part of the trip you sign up for; please confirm with Calvin directly before purchasing tickets!

Do you provide flight advice/support to get the cheapest flights?

Yep! We boast expertise in this area and would be happy to assist you in booking the cheapest flights, finding hack fares, or work with loyalty mile programs to getting you free economy, business class, or first class flights.

I’d love to come, but I’m limited on budget.

Contact us anyway and we can come up with a deal or financial aid packages.

Can I come alone?

Yes, many of our monsooners have joined our trip by themselves and end up meeting a whole new group of friends. We usually attract people who come from a range of backgrounds and have different levels of experience with travel.

What if I don’t usually like traveling with people?

Our trips are designed by independent travelers with independent travel in mind — we want to provide everyone with the opportunity and experience of traveling alone should they choose to. Therefore, there’s zero pressure to stick with the group anytime.

So if you want to venture off to a museum or try a different restaurant, by all means: Do it! The group will only be expected to stay together for transportation between cities.

Will you accommodate food restrictions (vegetarian, vegan, kosher, halal, cardiac, diabetic, lactose intolerant, peanut allergies, etc.)?

Of course. Just tell us ahead of time when you sign up and we can make accommodations easily.

Do I need visas?

Depends on your nationality and type of passport. People with USA and EU nationalities do not need visas. Otherwise, we can help you with this if you need any visas. Please ask!

Will someone provide me with a list of tasks I need to complete for visas or pre-entry credentials

Yes, of course!

Do I need travel insurance?

Up to you! Some credit cards already include some sort of travel insurance (check with them). We tend to find the cheapest ones at: http://www.travelinsurance.com/

Buada Lagoon

Tarawa, Kiribati

Honiara, Solomon Islands

The Edge Of The World / Least Visited Countries Tour

Winter 2018

Join us and our longtime partners at YPT for an essential adventure for all country collectors. Thanks to planning initially done by YPT we’ll visit #15, #7, #4, and #1 of the least visited countries in the world: the Marshall Islands, Kiribati, Nauru (which is the #1 least visited at ~150 tourists a year), and the Solomon Islands. These destinations are all unique, beautiful and in vintage Monsoon Diaries style, very off the beaten track.

Our trip begins in the US pseudo-colony of the Marshall Islands, where we check out the capital before going camping on an island that was fraudulently declared “independent” in the 90’s.

After that we head to Nauru for New Year’s Eve, heading straight into a Pacific island paradise to welcome in the new year! For the next five days, we explore every inch of this island, smugly relaxing in the friendly tropical paradise as everyone else gears up to head back to the office.

Following this, we’ll have two nights and three days in Kiribati, another island paradise, and home to some of the fiercest fighting of WW2 – a very interesting place for history buffs.

We then finish our trip at the 15th least visited country in the world – the Solomon Islands, which lies next to Papua New Guinea, but is thankfully much safer. Whilst the Solomon Islands has had its fair share of domestic strife, it’s now overcoming that, and is the perfect off the beaten track to finish our journey, with flight options to many other places after.

These are some of the hardest to reach, and most untouched places in the world. There’s off the beaten track, and then there’s this.

Friday 29th December

  • Arrival at own leisure to Majuro, the capital of the US freely associated state of the Marshall Islands! We will arrange or pickup to take you to Hotel Reimers
  • Once all the group arrive we will have a quick orientation at 4pm before heading out for dinner
  • We take the very short journey to the Tide Table Restaurant, a popular place with locals and expats alike for a dinner, drinks and a chance to make some new local friends and learn about life here
  • Overnight at Hotel Reimers

Saturday 30th December

  • We head out for a day trip via boat to the tropical island of Eneko, also known as Picnic Island. This island gained infamy in the 90s when a fraudulent new country project claimed it as an independent state. Fraud aside the island is very relaxing with public space for BBQs and drinking that we will make the most of for lunch and dinner
  • BBQ lunch on Eneko Island
  • We have lots of options for stuff to do for the rest of the day on the island, with kayaks, a pontoon to jump from, snorkelling, and of course pristine beaches to simply hang out on
  • BBQ Dinner on Eneko Island
  • We spend the evening here in the private cottages by the beach (weather permitting)

Sunday 31st December

  • Very early start to take the boat from Eneko to Majuro and transfer to the airport for the next part of our journey
  • We board our 3 hour 40 minute flight from the Marshall Islands to country number 2, and theworld’s least visited nation, the Republic of Nauru, at 9.25am arriving at 13.05
  • Met by our driver for the very short journey to Od’n Aiwo Hotel in the Aiwo district of Nauru where we will have a chance to freshen up before the night’s festivities
  • Lunch at the hotel
  • NEW YEAR’S EVE – We take a cool walk down by the waterfront to enjoy sunset before heading to the Reef Bar, a cool 30 minutes walk from our hotel. This was formerly the only bar on the island, and is thus a great place for us to party our way into 2018, accompanied by locally played live music. At midnight we head outside to watch the fireworks and lanterns being set off, and start 2018 in style on a tropical beach in Nauru
  • Overnight at Od’n Aiwo Hotel

Monday 1st January

  • After our busy new year’s eve, we start new year’s day in relaxed fashion with a late start, or for early risers a chance to explore the island at your own leisure
  • Lunch at Od’n Aiwo Hotel
  • After lunch we grab our supplies and head on a short hike to the Buada Lagoon, the only fresh water lagoon on the island, a beautiful place surrounded by palm trees, and offering great photo opportunities, and a great place for us to hang out and start the new year.
  • Nauru is famous for its street side BBQ, so we have that for dinner before heading back towards our hotel, with optional pit stops on the way back
  • Overnight at Od’n Aiwo Hotel

Tuesday 2nd January

  • Ever walked around a country? Ok Maybe you have, but have you ever done it in one day? Nauru is the only country in the world where it is genuinely possible to do this, so we take a day walking around Republic of Nauru stopping in various tourists attractions such as Parliament House, Government House, Anibare Bay and Harbour, as well various other things we might discover on the way, but with our main aim being to walk around the country!
  • We will stop for lunch at our own leisure at one of the many street food snack options that Nauru has
  • At night we head to “Jules”, one of the newest bars on the island for seafood dinner and drinks, accompanied by great views. The locals are very friendly in this bar, and it will offer us a great opportunity to make friends and learn about what life is like to live in a place like Nauru
  • Overnight at Od’n Aiwo Hotel

Wednesday 3rd January

  • Get up relatively early and head out after breakfast to explore World War 2 relics In Yaren. Spot the remains of Japanese guns, bunkers and pillboxes left over from the Pacific Theatre of the war!
  • Outside lunch
  • We head to Anibare Bay, which is where the best beaches are to make the most of this tropical island with swimming and beach time
  • Go for dinner and drinks at our leisure around the bay before heading back towards the hotel
  • Overnight in Od’n Aiwo Hotel

Thursday 4th January

  • Seeing as we are on a tropical island surrounded by water, we rent a boat for the day and head out for some sea fishing, snorkelling and diving for those inclined
  • BBQ lunch at the beach
  • We continue the day at sea, until we witness a real island sunset
  • Dinner and drinks in town
  • Overnight in Od’n Aiwo Hotel..

Friday 5th January

  • Up early for the 5.15am one hour flight from the world’s least visited country to the 3rd least visited – Kiribati, arriving at 6.30am. Kiribati was formerly the Gilbert and Elise Islands before it gained independence, with Tarawa the capital island/city
  • Picked up at the airport and transfer directly to Mary’s Motel for a relax and freshen up before we head out to explore
  • Tarawa was where one of the bloodiest battles of WW2 occurred, so we meet our local guide and head out to explore the island’s WW2 past and see some of the many relics of the war, such as coastal defence guns, bunkers and pillboxes, tanks, shipwrecks, as well as having the history explained to us
  • Lunch in Tarawa
  • We do a quaint walking tour of the capital including the government buildings, and other sites of interest
  • Dinner and drinks at the Lagoon Club
  • Overnight at Mary’s Motel

Saturday 6th January

  • After an early breakfast we take a boat over to Abaiang island not too far from Tarawa. We’ll be met and given the traditional welcome ceremony and then taken on a walk, anticlockwise, around Ribono village.
  • Then we have a whole day to explore the island, it’s shrines and churches, villages, lagoons and beaches, either by motorbike or on foot. The locals here hardly see any foreigners but they’re amongst the most friendly people in the world!
  • Boat back to Tarawa
  • Head out for a dinner and few last drinks on Kiribati
  • Overnight at Mary’s Motel

Sunday 7th January

  • We get up early for the 11.50am 3 hour flight to Honiara, the capital city of the world’s 15th least visited country – the Solomon Islands, arriving at 3pm
  • Met at the airport and transfer to the Honiara Hotel where we will have a chance to freshen up
  • Honiara is a small city, and easy to walk around by foot from our hotel, so we head into the centre to see the main sites, such as the parliament, as well as a few optional museums
  • We head for dinner and drinks at the vibrant Chinatown which is within easy walking distance from our hotel
  • Overnight at Honiara Hotel

Monday 8th January

  • Up early to explore Honiara central market, which is where real Soloman life occurs, and where we will have a chance to buy local souvenirs
  • We then meet our guide before spending the rest of the day trekking to the Matanikau Falls, a superb waterfall where we will get a chance to swim and generally relax after the hike. On the way we will stop for lunch.
  • After the hike we return to our hotel in Honiara for a shower and a relax before heading out for our last night
  • All good things must come to an end, including tours to the least visited countries in the world, so we head to the Honiara Casino for dinner, drinks and to try our luck on the tables
  • Farewell drinks at wherever takes our fancy, whilst celebrating the end of our trip that has taken in 4 of the most beautiful, but least visited countries in the world
  • Overnight at Honiara Hotel
