LYCIAN ACTIVITY WEEK

Lovely place to go and went to some amazing places. Met a nice group of people and mixed ages and backgrounds. Activities varied but not as strenuous as expected. The heat was the most challenging aspect.

MANALI TO LEH RIDE

It is important to understand in advance just how physically gruelling this trip is. I cycle 500-600 km per month but only managed to cycle up 2 of the 6 passes without assistance, and had to sit out one day completely due to a combination of altitude, heat stroke and diarrhoea. The scenery is great but you spend a lot of time looking at your front wheel.

IMPERIAL CHINA & YANGTZE RIVER CRUISE

In three weeks we covered more of China and got closer to the Chinese people than I could have imagined.They were amazingly open and friendly. This despite our lack of common language. This China is changing so fast. Go there. Soon.

MOSCOW TO ST PETERSBURG

A really excellent, safe and stress free way to explore a country I have always wanted to visit! This trip was one of my favourite holidays... Our excellent guide, Evgeniya, made sure we saw and did as much as possible in the 7 days. Both Evgeniya and local guides which she organised for us were so knowledgeable, and so I felt I learnt such a lot on guided tours of both cities, visits to the Kremlin, Armoury, Red Square and numerous beautiful palaces.This trip also gave us the opportunity to experience some real Russian culture as well, from the overnight train journey, a wide variety of Russian cuisine, visiting a Russian festival during a free afternoon in Moscow and exploring the backstreets on our St Petersburg walking tour. Both activities organised for some of our evenings; such as a midnight boat tour along the Neva to see the raising of the bridges and the Winter Palace illuminated against the backdrop of the 'white nights', or the night time cycling tour of St Petersburg, as well as just exploring Red Square at dusk made this trip feel really magical.

If you like walking, kayaking and exploring ancient ruins in a beautiful part of the world, this trip is for you! The walking is moderate but the uphills can be tough in the July heat! In addition to the trekking, I also really enjoyed exploring Kas which is a charming little town.

A brilliant trip with a fantastic guide and not such a bad group either! Niall (our guide) loved the Yukon and thanks to him so do I now!

CYCLING THE DANUBE - VIENNA TO BUDAPEST

This was a RadResein tour. It's a misnomer to say it was "cycling the Danube" as most of the time the Danube wasn't visible or accessible and we cycled through  lots of farmland. The promise of having the cycles available in Vienna didn't eventuate and when Tobias was asked (the Radresein person briefing us and handing out the cycles) he didn't make any effort to rectify this. Instructions in and out of the bigger cities were totally inadequate. Hotels mostly ok but the Vienne hotel, purportedly a 4 star, had no air conditioning in 38-40 degree heat - how can this star rating be?

MONT BLANC TO THE MATTERHORN

A fabioulous trip in the heart of Switzerland. Could not imagine a better trekking trip. If you have not your mountainerring skills 100% trained, this is a chance to do so. The way is very challenging and demanding route. The peaks vary from 1800 to 2900m above sea level. Views are astonishing and breathtaking if you never visited Switzerland before. (I am on the 5th picture in the "images" section far right with the white-red cap. Dated August-September 2006)
