Iceland

Iceland, a volcanic rock in the North Atlantic, is home to many natural wonders. Explore volcanoes, geysers, stinking mud holes, glaciers; you can even make black sand castles… My only advice would be to plan your trip over two weeks, the weather is changeable at best! For photos click the pic below.

The hike to Hochiss (2299m) in Austria is not very long or demanding, but offers spectacular views for little effort. A favourite with locals and tourists alike, this walk makes a great day out. If you have plenty of time, there are plenty of other summits to conquer. Click for more info.

Seekarspitze and Seebergspitze, Austria

By · Comments Comments Off on Seekarspitze and Seebergspitze, Austria

The stunning turquoise lake of Achensee, north east of Innsbruck, Austria is overlooked by the 2000m peaks of Seekarspitze and Seebergspitze. Together they form a lovely ridge walk, which if you start at the northern end, finishes at the small holiday town of Pertisau. There is a footpath along the lake shore for the return journey or a ferry, if like me, you leave it too late to return on foot. I had a great day out but just make sure you pick better weather!

Hochkönig Matrashaus, Austria

In September 2011, I spent a couple of weeks exploring the delights of the Austrian Alps. One great day walk was to Hochkönig Matrashaus at 2941m. 1500m of ascent made it a long but very satisfying day in the Austrian heat. To read how I got on and some photos, click the link. Hochkönig Matrashaus

I never knew that

This article made me realize what little we know about the places we visit. Nepal is now landmine free after the end of the civil war. After visiting Nepal twice, I never knew they had landmines but apparently they were to protect strategic sites. Full story click here.
