Bolzano: naked Germans, flash floods & gelato for days

AUSTRALIA | Sun, 19 Jun 2016 | By anaontheroad | Views [64]

German is a harsh language. It is spat at me through a large smile as I step out of my tent. I reply with a nod and smile, I know he only said good morning, but it sounded like he was insulting me (not to mention just yesterday I was greeted with some ... Read more >

How it all began

IRELAND | Fri, 4 Mar 2016 | By liveanddream | Views [123]

Back in 2014 I attended a talk on trekking to Everest Base Camp with Ian Taylor from Iantaylortrekking and was really intrigued but thought -oh yeah! - that's for other people to do, but maybe not for me - not yet anyway! So, the seed was planted and ... Read more >

INDIA | Sun, 27 Dec 2015 | By davidford | Views [129]

Live Young and Free is just one of many 'slogans' you can see around here stuck to the top of the windscreens of lorries, jeeps and the small people carriers that are so popular. Others read like 'Jai Ganesh', 'Om Mani Padme Hum', 'Siddartha' and so ... Read more >

In Kalimpong a day too long?

INDIA | Fri, 25 Dec 2015 | By davidford | Views [135] | Comments [1]

I am probably at my lowest ebb yet on this trip. Nothing terrible but I'm feeling a bit lost and lonely.  I could have titlled this blog Facing Mount Kanchenjunga but fear it lacks originality. Yesterday I took a taxi (300 rupees) to the top ... Read more >

Namaste Nepal- “I honour the place in you of which is love”.

NEPAL | Mon, 7 Dec 2015 | By gemma_laing | Views [467]

I have to admit, I was never keen to go to Nepal. On reflection, I guess it was a bit of ignorance. Perhaps ignorance is my biggest secret. I knew nothing about the country, the culture or the people, and for some reason I had no great desire to find ... Read more >

AUSTRIA | Mon, 30 Nov 2015 | By kakimono | Views [186]

Sunday, on Ashley's recommendation, we headed to a nearby mountain to get good views of the city and stop at a cafe he recommended. It is possible to climb the mountain, but it's also possible to take a bus. Guess which of the ways we took? (Hint: it ... Read more >

MOROCCO | Fri, 13 Nov 2015 | By nesrin | Views [158]

Cascades du Dard

FRANCE | Tue, 20 Oct 2015 | By elcastleberry | Views [77]

The trail turned sharply left, away from the highway. Within moments, the roar of passing trucks was muted, then swallowed by the heavy fog that engulfed the Chamonix Valley. The forest floor was a carpet of wet moss over boulders, an undulating sea ... Read more >
