Kilimanjaro 2012

Adventure number four with the Adventure Company was a climb up Kilimanjaro on the Rongai route.

After meeting up with some of my fellow climbers at Heathrow we all set off for Africa. We all got to see the mighty mountain from the plane as it rose above the clouds from the plane window and it looks very big when you know you will be attempting to climb it in the next few days! After a mini bus journey to Marangu and a meal we had our first breifing from our guide Samuel. After the breifing it all felt very real!!

Impressions of Burma

I’ve been back from Burma now for just over a month and still finding myself dreaming about the things that I learnt, the people that I met and the images that I saw!

It’s hard to pick out the highlights on this trip...

Nightfall at Shedagon Pagoda?  The temples of Bagan?  Boating on Inle Lake? The people of Burma?

Tanzania offers an all-round holiday experience

When you embark on a safari holiday, you usually expect to spend most of your time patrolling vast swathes of land looking for some of the world's most exotic creatures.

However, this is not the case when you head to Tanzania. Of course, you can spend all of your time searching for the "big five" wild animals if you wish, but there are so many other fantastic things to see and do.

Rosie’s blog – Around the Bay of Naples

Let’s start with Naples itself. The third biggest city in Italy, Naples is a long way from the chocolate box that is Florence  - or the ‘living museum’ of Venice. Naples is chaotic, contemporary and lively. It takes you several moments before you remember that this was the original ‘New City’ (Neo polis) as christened by the Greeks. There is of course magnificent art and culture to be found in Naples. On one of our free mornings, I took a taxi (13 Euros)  to the spectacular Capodimonte museum, high above the city.

The things I liked about Italy were these.

Firstly, going up Vesuvius. This was quite scary because you felt like you could just topple off the edge (but nobody did). It was also quite cold, with lots of clouds around, so I would advise you to bring a jumper or fleece! Pompeii was another Awesome adventure. I never knew the Romans cooked fast food out on the streets in stone pots, for example. It was sad to see people who had died in the volcano, lying down looking just like us.
