• 3 ghoulish festivals around the world!

    In honour of the upcoming Halloween celebrations, we look at three festivals around the world that celebrate the dead. They're not as morbid as you think!

    Near Death Festival 
    Every year in Las Nieves, Spain, people who have suffered a near death experience in the past year attend the Fiesta de Santa Marta de Ribarteme. This is a Mass in celebration of the Patron Saint of resurrection.

  • Wildlife in the Galápagos Islands


    Our Galapagos tour leaders, Annie and Woody Inglis, take us through what you can expect as you explore this living evolutionary laboratory:

    It's clear why the Galápagos Islands are also known as the Enchanted Isles. The varied and dramatic landscapes provide habitat for diverse and abundant wildlife. No pictures, books or documentary films can prepare you for what will be seen and experienced.

  • Cat versus bird: The grand final edition

    We all know cats and birds don't get along. So expect a ferocious battle when the Geelong Cats take on the Collingwood Magpies in the 2011 AFL Grand Final this weekend.

    In honour of these two tough teams, we take a look at some of the world's most formidable cats and birds.

  • Five of the best in Argentina

    Argentina is such a feast for the senses that it can be hard to know where to start. There's so much to see and do, but you could just as easily find yourself whiling away the hours people-watching at a local cafe. 
    Keep this list handy and you'll make enough memories to last a lifetime...and still have enough time left over to enjoy that coffee!

  • 58 countries and counting: One family's quest for adventure!

    David Gibbons is a single dad devoted to showing his two boys, Sam (aged 16) and Harry (14), the most spectacular places on earth. The Gibbons’ are frequent Peregrine travellers and together they’ve conquered over 58 countries!

  • Flavours of Oaxaca, Mexico

    Antonina Indomenico is a tourism student who is undertaking work experience in the Peregrine office.

  • Would you rather: Eat cautiously or try everything?

    We recently asked our Facebook fans to take part in a travel debate.

    The topic:
    Are you overly cautious with food when travelling or do you throw caution to the wind and try the lot?

    Try everything:
    Most people were keen to try the local cuisine, but also understood the risks. Despite a few reports of Bali Belly and the odd dodgy tummy, it seems our Facebook fans are a pretty adventurous lot:

    The Galapagos is an archipelago of 18 main islands just west off Ecuador in South America.

  • How to write your own travel blog

    The word ‘blog’ originated from the term ‘web log’ and was initially taken up only by those web savvy enough or with the funds to dedicate to the idea. Today, however, it’s easy. You don’t need to know anything about source code or HTML and you don’t need a cent. If you have the time and the motivation to write about anything you can easily set up your own blog.

    Mike Wood, Manager of the Peregrine Travel Centre in Perth recently experienced the Galapagos on a Peregrine trip. We caught up with him to ask him for some of his favourite moments.

So where else to trek if you’re short on time but long on adventure? Take a walk through our recommendations.
