Where In The World


NEPAL | Thursday, 8 Nov 2007 | Views [752]

Previously Reb was struck by intense diahorrea, or the Ring of Fire as Mark likes to call it, which forced us to stay in the camp of Yak Kharka instead of Letdar.  Normally this early stop wouldn't be problematic but we wanted to spend the following ... Read more >

Glimpse of Heaven

NEPAL | Monday, 5 Nov 2007 | Views [970]

Our 'rest day' began with us waking at 0500, enjoying a hearty breakfast, and heading off to conquer the climb to Ice Lake at an all time high elevation of 4600m (or 15,091 ft).  When preparing to climb at high elevation, like the Thorung La Pass at ... Read more >

Call of the Wild

NEPAL | Sunday, 4 Nov 2007 | Views [634]

Today, day 10, we begin with us emerging from our dust covered room ( I say dust covered because everything in the town of Gyaru is covered in a think layer of fine dirt or dust, including the people!)  and invigorated by the view in front of us.  We ... Read more >

Awe & Wonder

NEPAL | Saturday, 3 Nov 2007 | Views [679]

In just another day or two we will finally have our day of rest, my sore and achy muscles are screaming YAY!  The past few days have been a constant uphill battle with no slack or rest for the wreary.  Day 7 proved to be the most challenging, of course ... Read more >

Big Girls Don't Cry

But They Have Communist Boyfriends? Today I learned the hard way that sleep is essential for trekking. For unknown reasons the past three nights have been sleepless, leaving me to struggle behind the others. I felt as though I couldn't move my ... Read more >

Rat Race

HUNGARY | Tuesday, 30 Oct 2007 | Views [701]

It was only our first day and we could already see a difference between the paths we'd just traveled and those that lay ahead of us. While eating breakfast in Bhule Bhule we'd already lost count of the numerous trekkers that passed us with their porters ... Read more >

Unmarked Trails

NEPAL | Sunday, 28 Oct 2007 | Views [855]

Our goal was Baglung Pani, at an elevation of 1595 meters, a minor speck in comparison to what lay ahead once we reached the official start of 'the Circuit'. However, we would still be climbing over 1,000 meters, no easy feat when you don't know where ... Read more >

And They All Fall Down

NEPAL | Saturday, 27 Oct 2007 | Views [627]

Or At Least Sharon Does.... A fresh new start and today's goal was to reach yesterday's desired destination (I was slightly afraid to see how many inches it was between start and finsih). Although it's October the temperature in the valley is very ... Read more >

How Long to Travel an Inch?

NEPAL | Friday, 26 Oct 2007 | Views [1634]

An early morning rise and a local bus to Begnas Tal...now what?! We weren't sure either. After a minor "detour", the first of many I'm sure, we began to follow a gravel road which we hoped would take us to our first stop...Sheklung. What ... Read more >

The Smoke that Thunders (Vic Falls)

ZAMBIA | Wednesday, 26 Sep 2007 | Views [790]

We arrived in Zambia with both excitement and sadness. Though it is home to Africa's famous Victoria Falls, a spectacular sight known around the world, it was also the final destination of our overland tour. As soon as we entered Zambia our first ... Read more >

We'd left the waters of the Okavango Delta and made our way to Chobe River National Park where we'd be spending the last of our Botswana days and nights. We began with another incredibly early morning rise (it was still pitch black when we awoke) ... Read more >

The Okavango Delta is one of the world's largest inland water systems.  It can expand to over 16,000 square kilometres and plays a major role in supporting the area's wildlife and we had the opportunity to explore it on mokoro canoes.  This little, ... Read more >

With the Click of a Tongue

BOTSWANA | Wednesday, 19 Sep 2007 | Views [13438] | Comments [2]

We'd crossed the border and had entered into Botswana where, after an incredibly long bus ride, we stayed in Ghanzi.  The next morning we woke early and had a Bushman walk with the San Bushmen of the Kalahari.  I'm a huge fan of the films 'The Gods Must ... Read more >

Lions, Elephants, & Rhino...OH MY!

NAMIBIA | Monday, 17 Sep 2007 | Views [854]

Our second night in Etosha and it was still exciting to see and watch all the animals.  A majority of our Acacia team was comfortably seated in the benches or leaning against the game-proof fence.  That night the elephants were at it again with their ... Read more >

We pulled into camp unsure of what to expect but we knew that we'd be seeing wild animals!  The entry drive into the park already presented zebra, giraffee, oryx, and 'boks' (springbok, gemsboks, etc.) so we were ecstatic as to what the floodlit watering ... Read more >
