In planning my RTW adventure, I have been giving considerable thought to the options of backpack solo, or booking into an organised tour. We soon came to Giles Weather Station. This was another prohibited area, and no one could go there unless it was an emergency. I’m writing too much. Buy my book. So you can read about the water wind mill that we fixed at Blackstone camp, and how our trailer broke down. Laverton was still far away. It was also on this leg of the travel insurance journey, that a can of sardines may have saved our lives. Also in book. About 100 Km’s out of Laverton we hit a made road that belonged to a town called Malcolm. When we arrived, only a couple of building remained. The rest of the town was reduced to rumble. Today, NOTHING remains at all. We stayed over night in one of the abandoned and empty homes. The following morning we had crossed the Gibson dessert and after a couple of thousand Km’s arrived at Laverton.

A vacation should be a fun and exciting experience and not a source of stress. The key to making your vacation relaxing, fun and hassle free is to pay attention and learn how to travel smart. Tourists in Cuba can only use Cuban Convertible Pesos, abbreviated as CUC, for money. At the Melia Cayo Santa Mario there is no bank. There is a Cadeca, a money exchange office, located to one side of the lobby bar. It is open daily for most of the day. Well written and informative article about the winter resorts, around the World. We usually travel during this time of the year, but not this time. I have been to Switzerland and USA. The rest are on my list. Let’s see, when. We worked in Nepal for a while and really enjoyed our stay. We stayed in The Courtyard which is like an oasis in Thamel but what is unique about it is its Library where guests who want gather there and have drinks before dinner enjoying each other’s stories of their wanderings of the day. A great experience. Pokhara is truly beautiful and your pictures really capture this.
