Adventures in Egypt

It all started with a 'mum, can we go to Ancient Egypt?' My youngest had just started learning about the pharaohs at school and was absolutely enchanted with all the gory details, from pulling the brains out of mummies' noses to sacrificing cats. I had always wanted to see the pyramids myself, so when the chance came up to go on our Feluccas and Pharaohs trip, I knew what we would be doing in the October half term!

Safari

Once Africa has stolen your heart, there is no turning back. I first visited fifteen years ago and still dream of emigrating there to work on a safari. It's about as close to heaven as I'll ever come. Safaris are the closest most of us will ever get to wildlife in the natural world. They’re exciting because they are unpredictable. You never know what's going to happen or what you're going to see.

All along the Lycian Way!

As we touched down in Dalaman airport, the Turquoise Coast shimmering before us, I knew it was going to be a fantastic holiday.

We were going to do the Lycian Way, a 500km waymarked path, which I had read was listed by the Sunday Times as one of the world’s Top Ten Walks. Definitely worth a shot! Though we we’re going to do miss out some of the longer more remote mountainous stretches and concentrate on the villages and delicious bays that run along the coast.

Climate Week, 21-27 March 2011

Climate week is the largest environmental event of the year in the UK pulling together thousands of individuals and organisations across the country to run events and commit to actions which make us think about changing our daily behaviour to become more sustainable.

Essentially it’s collective small actions which become the catalyst for big changes.

At The Adventure Company we have a list of pledges which we are committing to. Please join us and make a pledge - and don't forget to tell your friends.

My trip to Iceland

I've just got back from an exciting trip to Iceland where I was lucky enough to see the Northern Lights. Seeing this magnificent natural wonder come to life before your eyes was amazing, I can't recommend it enough.

Seeing the Northern Lights

On the evening of 28th February our first Icelandic northern lights tour was treated to a superb display of the aurora borealis. Shortly after dinner Dr John Mason, our astronomy expert reported the arc of the lights in the north and the group put on their warm cloths and filed outside to the viewing area. As the evening continued the auroral activity increased and waves, rays and curtains of green and red light mesmerised us all. Under the crystal clear skies many stood watching until well after midnight. The sight of this truly wonderful spectacle was unforgettable.

Snowshoeing in the mountains

To be honest Bulgaria is a place which didn’t conjure up the most exciting expectations. I can not get away from its communist Eastern European block image, but I joined the trip thinking I knew nothing of the country or the region and was interested to get a truer perspective of what it’s like.

The flight is just over 2 hours from the UK and after another hour and a half transfer we arrived in our hotel for the night. As we arrived early evening we were surrounded by darkness so, so far I had seen nothing of the country apart from a shiny new airport.

Darn Camara

Hi Every body.

If there is any one who went on the Adventure nepal trip with us (Hana and Graham Warren, Honeymooners) in October 2010 could you please  help us. As you know our camara broke half way on the trip and were trying to track you all down (aha ha ha ha) to see if any one has any photos of us or particularly great scenic photo's that you may wish to share so we can finish up our Wedding/Honeymoon photo albums.

If any one could help we would really apprieciated. 

Love to you all and thanks again for the great memories.

Trains, plains and game drives

My first trip to Africa: I really wanted to avoid the crowds and see some real life before chilling out and doing nothing for a few days.

Cuba libre!

People have been saying for years now that you have to go to Cuba before it changes and this is definitely true.  Its culture and political system are completely unique in the modern world.  It is starting to change slowly bringing more positive changes for the Cuban people but it is still in a world of its own.  I was constantly amazed by all the elegant classic cars on the roads and how they are still running after all of this time!
