There are 6 countries that are home to the Himalayan mountain range: Nepal, China/Tibet, India, Bhutan, Pakistan and Myanmar. Without question or debate it is Nepal that stands out as the Himalayan Kingdom. Not only does it contain the highest number of peaks of any other country housing the Himalaya, it has the most peaks open for climbing and has by far the best infrastructure to support tourism and mountaineering. Nepal has seen mountaineering activity that dates back further than any other asian country with the early expeditions beginning in the 1890’s and early 19th century. The Himalaya in central Asia was the last and greatest mountain range to see exploration and eventually became the range where modern-day expedition assaults and tactics were developed by the early pioneers.

The Nepal government (Ministry of Tourism) and the Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA) earned $3.91 million USD in tourist revenue from mountaineering permits in 2013. This amount is cited from figures released by the Nepali government. Year to year this number fluctuates, but its fair to say that just by looking at the financial evidence, Nepal should be on your bucket list if you’re a mountain climber.

Tsavo Park is the largest park in Kenya and one of the biggest in the world. It is divided into Tsavo East and West. Tsavo river runs across the park but the railway line and the A 109 road divides the park into two. The famous railway line that was constructed in the 19th century also brought about the Tsavo man eaters that terrorized railway workers killing at least 35 of them. There is a lot to see in this park. You can choose to tour all of it at the same time or do it separately. Since it is divided into two, touring one section then crossing to the other section.

You will also note that the climate on both sides is very different. Tsavo East is very dry and hot while its counterpart is wetter and more humid. In Tsavo East, the main attraction is the big five, smaller animals, birds and the diverse terrain. You will encounter hundreds of animals as they go about their business in the park. The best time to adventure is late in the evening or very early in the morning. You will be able to find most animals in

I have less than a year until I reach the big FOUR-ZERO. Although many say that forty is the new thirty – after all, we are on a whole getting more health-conscious, spending countless hours at the gym getting toned and fit – the upcoming birthday is still a time for reflection. I watched a post on YouTube not so long ago about age and one’s career. According to the man being interviewed – a man born into a poor family in China whose net worth, at the age of 50, is into the billions (of US dollars) – one’s career should be set in stone and on a spiral upward by the time the age of forty comes along.

If I follow this rule, and with five months to go to my fortieth birthday, I think I may be in trouble where my career is concerned. But as I look back on my life, I realise I have many life experiences to be proud of. A unique one, particularly as a Sabahan, was the four years I spent roughing it in the African bush. Contrary to the notion many held that I was miles away from

Lake Bled is located in the Julian Alps in northwestern Slovenia. The natural landscapes surrounding the lake are amazing. It’s no surprise that Bled was a favorite destination for President Tito, who was spending a lot of time in his villa located on the lakeside.

The Lake Bled is the main touristic attraction in Slovenia, and one of the most prominent symbols of the country, along with the Triglav peak. It is a glacial lake on altitude of 475 meters. The total area of the lake is 1,438 square km. The astonishing natural beauty under the Alps can be reached in only 55 km from the Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia.

What makes the lake unique is the Church of the Assumption, which is located on the Bled Island on the lake. That is probably the most beautiful landscape that there ever was in whole Yugoslavia. It is an endlessly romantic place with a 99 stone-step staircase that show the way to the Church. Every young couple in Slovenia dreams of climbing that staircase in order to pronounce the faithful “yes” on a spectacular wedding on the Island.

Besides the Church, the Bled Island

Work and school drains the energy out of oneself. One works hard and earns money for his family’s wellbeing. They make sure to look after the basic needs of their family and also the latter’s wishes of travelling around the world. To travel around the best places in the world, one can approach their favorite tour operators and get their exotic booking done.

In places like Egypt where there is tourist abundance, these planners organize short and long trips for their bookies and make huge money for their services. Some of the most common tour circuits that are picturesque and speak about the bounties of Egypt that starts from the beautiful Sharm el-sheikh are discussed here:

Sharm el-Sheikh Tours

One can simply book a resort and enjoy the days and nights of Egypt staying close to the ocean. The Sharm el-sheikh tours of Egypt begin with arrival and checking in to a nice hotel or resort as

Waaaaaay back in May 2014, I sat in Sheila’s lounge room with Sheila and Christine to talk about an African adventure. They had travelled to South America a few years before and wanted to make the most of their Yellow Fever vaccination, so Africa was the logical next step for them.

Of course they had to come to Kenya, both to visit me and because it’s the place for the best safaris in the world (I’m not biased!). They also wanted to visit Botswana, being fans of the The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency, and Victoria Falls. They had three weeks to experience the best of the African continent and so we set to work planning an itinerary.

There were a couple of challenges. First of all, Kenya has so much and we wanted to show them all of it, but we had to narrow the safari down to just a week. Secondly was finding an affordable way to travel in Botswana. Botswana caters to the high-end luxury traveller, and lodges are typically US$400+ per person per night. For your average retired teacher, this is not affordable. The alternative is a mobile camping safari and our

For many people, the thought of traveling alone seems daunting and sometimes even overwhelming. Without a travel companion, they question who they’ll connect with, how they’ll have fun, and even, what they’ll be able to experience alone. But traveling alone is actually a rewarding and enriching pastime that can open up a world of possibilities for you. Here’s how traveling alone will make you a better person.

You’ll Learn More About Yourself

Striking out to travel by yourself means that, instead of relying on someone else’s skills or knowledge, you’ll be doing it all yourself. Through this experience, you’ll not only learn more about who you are currently, you’ll also learn more about what you’re capable of, while picking up new skills and experiences yourself.

You’ll Learn to be Alone

In our modern world, it sometimes feel easy to be “plugged in” all the time. It hardly seems like we get a moment to ourselves. But when you travel alone, you have the chance to become comfortable with the idea of being alone. Instead of worrying about intrusive friends or needy family members, you’ll have a chance to worry only about yourself.

Once school is out and summer rolls in, many families hit the roads for a small vacation. Visiting another party of your country is a good way to spend some quality time with the family and have some fun as well. The first choice is a road trip since that is more adventurous and has a freer feel to it.

However for families who wish to visit those corners of their country which are farther away, traveling by road is unfeasible and flying is the only option. Flights with your kids can be an arduous task, below are listed some tips which will help in making the trip smoother for you and your kids.

Considering taking a red-eye flight. These overnight flights can be very convenient. Your kids will be worn out from their activities during the day and after a late supper will probably fall asleep a little while after you board the plane. Don’t let them take a nap before the flight. Sleeping during the flight will make it pass by quicker, you’ll wake up a little more refreshed than you would have been otherwise and hopefully won’t lose a day to travel.

Beautiful South Africa. Africa is home to many wonderful cultures and experiences. One such sight to behold is the migration of the whales along 1,200 miles of coastline. Where two oceans meet at the southern tip of Africa, you will find a vast array of cultures that only the Western Cape can offer. This is where you can watch whales from both land and sea.

Every year Southern Right whales move through the waters in a mass migration. This is where you will be able to bear witness to the calving and feeding of their joyous and playful young. These beautiful creatures can be seen scant meters from the shore. Because the whales venture so close, this allows for some of the best whale watching in the entire world. When can you see this miracle take place? The best times to witness this event are between June and November. You can see other beautiful whales in the Western Cape as well. Humpback whales migrate through the same area between May and December and Bryde’s whales can be seen a bit further offshore all year.

The route that the whales follow begins in the south of Cape

ICE (information, communication, and entertainment) Age bestows good times, nurturing the global socializing, defying the time zone differences. As a result, individuality, honesty, a non-judgmental approach, expression, and exploration are the beautiful takeaways. We are growing fearless, in the right way. Say hello to the ‘global’ ‘YOLO’ generation believing in You Only Live Once! The dare and not the age is the identifier here. Aptly enough, adventure activities are ‘the’ core friend, philosopher, and guide of these adventure enthusiasts. Helping us inch closer to the nature and in turn life, adventure pursuits inculcate the values of adjustment and co-existence. Trekking is the starting point of this self-conclave at the physical, mental, and emotional level. Fitness is a beautiful side effect of this.

What is a trek?

A trek is a combination of walking and hiking through a terrain with varied ascents and descents punctuating it. Ranging from a day to multi-day trips, trek patches are remote or rural areas, inaccessible through transportation. Going unreachable is exactly the pull force for the trekkers.

Why the ‘YOLO’ Generation takes risk?

The enthusiasm of seeing the challenging, but virgin, beautiful lands, ‘enjoying’ the glories of the day
