When it comes to adventure travel the destination should be as adventurous as the activities planned. When the same destinations appearing again and again in your social media feed—coworkers headed to Tulum for a break from the cold? Friends posting selfies from the Blue Lagoon in Iceland?—you might have discovered a travel trend. Travel + Leisure’s writers and editors pay close attention not only to the latest in popular destinations, but also to industry-wide trends like the growth of peer-to-peer travel insurance rental services (such as Airbnb), the resumption of commercial flights between Cuba and the United States, or the shockingly high rates of unused paid time off for millennial workers. Learn about up-and-coming trends for consumers and for the industry. I’m trying to learn as much as I can about Nepal and Nepalese cultures before I go. It didn’t take long to realize, though the country isn’t very large, there is much diversity amongst its people, not to mention its landscape.

Temperature’s were getting up in the 50 degree Celsius now, and it was tuff going, so we didn’t spend much looking at the huge round boulder & sand formations at the Olga’s. From here on, we needed to use our compass. The made road had turned into a track, that sometimes disappeared into the bush. After zig zagging across the country side, we stumbled upon Lasseter’s Cave. I won’t go into details; you can read about that in my book. When we arrived at the Warburton Mission, nothing prepared us for the horrible conditions we encountered. Huts made from rusty corrugated iron leaning against trees where the aborigines lived. Terrible, and no wonder the Government would not allow photo’s to be taken. We filled at a petrol station manned by another AH who could have been a relative of that stupid Policeman from Coober Pedy. We reluctantly got some supplies and quickly got out from this horrid place.
