In planning my RTW adventure, I have been giving considerable thought to the options of backpack solo, or booking into an organised tour. Ok, so we were really hungry after the airplane ride, and I for one couldn’t wait to hit the restaurants and EAT! The food at Meliá Cayo Santa María resort was very good. We found most everything we ate at the buffet restaurant to be tasty, well seasoned, largely healthy, and at times, bordering on delectable. The variety was a little repetitious, but the existent selection was more than sufficient, so as not to have to eat the exact same thing over and over again in a one week period, if one chose not to. My “winter vacation” in the Philippines is almost over. Yet, I wanted to visit one of the exciting and fascinating wonder of nature in my home country. The most talked about waterfalls in Bislig City, Surigao del Sur. The Tinuy-an Falls. For those that have seen it during its days before mass tourism. would a agree. One of the most beautiful places on earth. But we had to keep going, and it was always possible to come back sometime in the future.

Most of my time in Nepal will be during the rainy-or monsoon-season, when many of the country’s unpaved roads are impassable. So I expect I’ll be doing a lot of walking (trekking, that is), which is more than fine with me. I hope to explore as much as possible on foot. A simple strategy to cut costs is to avoid the most popular places. For instance, a European city like Paris can be so expensive, but there are other great alternatives that can be just as charming, such as Athens and Budapest. Alternatively, a trip to Costa Rica is typically quite pricey, but a neighboring country like Nicaragua may be a more attractive option. I know lots of people who have been to Nepal ( lots of my friends are keen walkers)- sadly I’m not one of them. I wish you ll the best for this great experience. Great lens.

OK so Kenya isn’t the great adventure it once was; it’s still pretty adventurous. The adrenaline levels for this trip can be bumped up a notch through a hot air balloon ride. Bump up the adrenaline even more and plan to go during the great migration in the dry season where millions of African migratory animals begin the move towards water. Check with a destination specialist to arrange for this experience. Want more adventure? Try a guided travel insurance camping safari in the bush. After loading up we headed for Port Pirie some 230 Km’s away. This coastal town sits between The Spencer Gulf and The Flinders Ranges. This is a very beautiful place to visit. But I’ll give you some stats on what roads are like. The whole Region has 1226 km’s of roads. Of which only 280 Km’s are sealed. And these figures were produced in 2009. Back in 1969, that would have been more like 20 Km’s sealed.

We enjoyed our ride home. The countryside of Venice is fertile farmland, but it looked like perhaps people have been selling their family farms. We saw as many as four or five ancient farm houses sitting in complete disrepair amidst well-tended fields. While relatively new to China, the sport of Kite Boarding has been adopted by the people of Fujian in a big way. If you’re new to the sport instruction is available. Other great adventures in China include mountain trekking in Tibet’s autonomous region, although proponents of ethical tourism may wish to consider where they stand on this point. Solitude, silence and the calls of the loons, the howls of wolves, and other abundant wildlife, pristine waters teeming with fish, thick forests in all shades of green, and time to slow down, breathe the fresh air and get in touch with yourself for a while – those are just some of the things I love about the land of 10,000 lakes and why I proposed this trip, my second time to the area.
