Everest Base Camp

It sounded straightforward. Put one foot in front of another, repeat for six hours. Replenish with copious amounts of black tea and restless sleep, repeat for eight days. Get to Everest, take photo, turn around and scoot back down, making up for every beer that you denied yourself on the way up. Easy.

We made it!

Altitude is an intriguing leveller: it’s better to be more Chris Moyles than Olympic machine. So I’d imagined that I’d be fine. Yet, the next morning, minutes after leaving the lodge my head felt like it was in a vice, my legs had turned to lead and my stomach was doing flip flops. As the team looked back in mild sympathy, Doctor Deaglan trotted up alongside me with unfair ease, sparked up a Malboro Light and murmured in my ear: “Aspirin, anti-emetic, Diamox?” Near the top of the world, things clearly get back to front: not smoking bad, drugs good.

Antarctica - The Circle Quest

Family fun in Croatia

It was here at last It had seemed such a long way off when I booked it the previous November. It was our first holiday just the 3 of us, I was both nervous and excited. My 2 girls aged then 8 and 9 couldn’t wait to set off.

Lands of the Mekong

This trip is a great introduction to S.E. Asia, and was a wonderful way to celebrate Christmas and New Year! It starts and finishes in Thailand, and takes in seldom-visited Laos and Cambodia, a country that dominated the news bulletins in my youth. It was fascinating to sail down the Mekong, which is totally devoid of wildlife, and to see day to day life on its banks. Luang Prabang is delightful, with lots to see and do, and the trek and homestay we did over Christmas, introducing the Lao to the delights of Christmas Cake!

Desert Adventure

This was my first trip with the Adventure company and i loved every moment of the trip.

Our guide,cook,camel drivers were all fantastic and nothing was to much trouble. Tea on top of a sand dune to watch the sun go down in the Sahara . The sound of camels milling around the tent in the early morning and traditional song and dance in the desert night are all things i will remember.

Being able to walk or ride was nice but be warned if you walk a sand dune section as its hard going!!

Ait Benhaddau was a great place to visit and what a view from the top!

Try a canoe holiday in Croatia

Essentially a water based holiday, and a fabulous experience. Having been left to fend for ourselves whilst my husband and 2 other sons went off on a Scout trip, myself and our youngest boy decided to go and have our own adventure.
Being only 2 in a group of 14 was no problem as the other 3 families were very welcoming and friendly, and the overall group size worked very well.

Costa Rica Adventure Holiday: My Experience

The Costa Rica adventure holiday was my first with the Adventure Company - it was so well organised, our Guide Denis was fabulous - his knowledge and enthusiasm was second to none. My expectations were greatly exceeded, Denis spotted so much wildlife - I wouldn't have seen any of it if it wasn't for his finely tuned eye sight. The rainforest was amazing, the rafting on the Pacura river was out of this world - so much to see, and very exhilarating! It made my decade seeing Two and Three-Toed Sloth's. The diversity of flora and fauna was truly breathtaking.

Delhi to Kathmandu

The only way to describe the Delhi to Kathmandu trip is as an action packed journey through India and Nepal and something akin to a `Planes, Trains and Automobiles`, with the odd Ox cart, Elephant, rickshaw, dug out boat and light aircraft thrown in for fun!

Delhi
Having arrived into Delhi airport at 5am we said a quick hello to the rest of the group and headed off for a few hours rest before formal introductions to Abhi our tour leader (and soon to be friend) and other members of the group. 

Kyrenia Trails

Day 1

Arriving after a comfortable flight with Cyprus Airlines we were met and driven to our hotel about an hour away. The comfortable hotel with 2 great swimming pools was a welcome sight at the end of our journey. After being met by our Group Leader, Roz, with a drink and a short introduction to Cyprus and the week ahead, we had time to unpack and freshen up before getting to know the rest of our group over a relaxed dinner.
