Season of adventure

Feature : We're all going on a summer holiday … well, some of you are. At KS we are lashed to the desk writing about places our readers might like to try. Among the adventures we find out about this month, we have ballooning in Turkey, hanging with orang-utans in Sumatra, a fairy-tale town in Belguim, making the best of limited budgets in Thailand and Kyushu and more. There are quicker but no less fun getaways closer to home in Okinawa's exotic islands and Nara's forested depths, among others. Summer: the sweltering season of adventure. Go away and enjoy! We'll still be here when you get back.

Please direct any questions, comments or rants/raves about the KS site to the webmaster.
