Published

Laying down on a beach and getting tanned is never an option for you? Are you looking for something more than that and want to experience something truly unique somewhere far away? No problem! Read the article and start dreaming of the adventure of the lifetime in the following six travel destinations just for you!

fourjandalscom-Nepal

  1. Secret paths and ancient villages in Nepal

After a massive 2015 year’s earthquake, Nepal stands again. Right now all hotels, restaurants and travel agencies are running again, and they are ready to welcome all tourists who lack some spirit of adventure.

Visit Annapurna Mountains and walk Nar Phu secret paths in remote villages. Some villages like Meta, Nar, and Phu Phedi opened to outsiders just in 2003, so you might be one of the very first tourists they ever saw. This beautiful and wild land, with its architecture and religious buildings, seem to be a lot inspired by Tibetan culture. Therefore, you can experience a bit of Tibet essence in Nepal as well.

fourjandalscom-Maine

  1. 100 miles of wildlife in Maine, America

For many it might seem that a road trip, which is about 2180-miles long, during which travelers will cross 14 states, from Georgia to Maine is way too long. But you can take a shorter version of it, and still enjoy beautiful nature of North America.

The 100-mile-long trip you should make really is not that long. The journey should start at Monson and continue through charming pine trails through mountains peaks, with alongside streaming rivers and large lakes. There is a huge chance that you are going to see a lot of wild animals like grizzlies or moose too, so charge your camera well! End your adventurous trip at Abol Bridge and never forget this amazing trip you had!

fourjandalscom-Venezuela

  1. Enjoy lightning in Venezuela

Catatumbo’s lightning is a phenomenon found only in Venezuela. In here, you can see how one small area is being stricken with hundreds of lightning for several hours. But this is not everything that Catabumbo can offer you.

It is necessary to climb the mountains of Merida, admire Los Llanos wetland’s wildlife, take a boat ride on the Orinoco River’s delta and meet Wara tribal people. For the perfect finale, stop by at Angels Falls, which is the highest waterfall in the entire world.

fourjandalscom-Greenland

  1. Explore new lands of Greenland

During this trip in Greenland – one of the most spectacular places on Earth, not yet ruined by global warming or masses of tourists, you can visit the Eskimo community, see polar bears, whales, seals, and seabirds. In such remote corner of the world, the weather and the sea are unpredictable, but that will be more fun and definitely more adventurous!

fourjandalscom-Indonesia

  1. Climbing volcanoes in Indonesia

This trip promises you a chance to explore exotic cultures but still have plenty of action. How? You can climb into five major volcanoes in Java, Bali and Lombok! Mountain rivers you can take a swim at, sleeping in tents and many other kinds of adventurous experience are waiting for you in Indonesia.

It is also worth mentioning that you should also make a visit to the largest Buddhist temple – Borobudur, which will take your breath away with its spectacular architecture and magical atmosphere around.

fourjandalscom-Siberia Russia

  1. Trans-Siberian Safari in Russia

Last, but not least – the Trans-Siberian railway, stretching from Moscow to Vladivostok. This year this incredible railway route will celebrate the 100-year anniversary of the installation, so you might be one of the lucky ones, who got a seat on this fantastic train.

There may be many vacation options if you choose to explore Siberia too. You can take the train, fly a plane, sail a boat, or even drive a car. During this trip, you will visit secluded villages, see the Baikal Lake and Ural Cannes and enjoy real and untouched by human hands nature.

    Isn’t it crazy that these places even exist here on Earth? I certainly think it is. They are also extremely different from one another, but share a similarity- they all attract the most adventurous! From all different corners of the world you can experience the journey Mother Nature has to offer. I sure hope to visit one of these places in my lifetime!

    Such beautiful photos! I went to the Annapurna Mountains a few years ago and can’t wait to get back there and take some of the paths less traveled. The circuit and sanctuary were quite busy.

    Is it accurate to say that it isn’t insane that these spots even exist here on Earth? I positively think it is. From every diverse corner of the world you can encounter the excursion Mother Nature brings to the table. I beyond any doubt would like to visit one of these spots in my lifetime!
    Great post with travel pics.

Explore Auckland’s Coasts With One Exquisite Walking Hike

Published

on

There is a wonderful place found in the far southwest of the Pacific Ocean. It is a place called Auckland, and it is found in the amazing terrain of New Zealand. It is a place that commands the attention of over 1 million people who prefer to live and reside in this majestic city.

Did you know that Auckland claims the top spot in New Zealand with its wide range of people and the most concentrated number of people within a city in New Zealand?

But why do so many people come to Auckland, New Zealand, and live there? What do they appreciate the most?

The truth is that the answer may vary, and it may differ from person to person, but it is hard to deny that nature is not a crucial part of their decision making. The beautiful city has fantastic places that offer great adventure and recreational activity.

You can take advantage of the diverse coasts, hidden coves, and more of the northern area in the North Island. It is known for its various boats, and some believe that it has more ships than any other city in the entire world.

It is a city that resides between two large fantastic natural harbors.

Let us find out more about how you can explore this majestic city with one fantastic walking hike.

The Auckland Coast

For those who want to stay near to Auckland’s city and travel well, it is necessary to start your journey with the Auckland Coast’s breathtaking area.

Did you know that Auckland’s coast ranges over 15km, will take over four hours to traverse, and is somewhat challenging to navigate? But the truth is that it is worth it. Why is it worth it? Well, you can seemingly walk the length of an entire nation within the span of a few hours. If you wake up early in the morning and go on this journey, you can finish your hike by noon or an hour past noon.

But in that brief timeframe, you can experience several oceans, notice a slew of volcanoes, and have a glimpse into people’s regular lives in the New Zealand area.

This fantastic walk is excellent because of its duration and because you are able to experience lush greenery and park settings over 30% of the time. It is a great way to clear your head, get to know more about the people you are traveling with, and experience the refreshing Auckland air.

Experts suggest beginning your journey at the less intriguing Onehunga area and then moving forward with public transportation at the Britomart stop. You will find that you can travel east to take in the water sights with a bit of work.

When your walk is over, you can grab a fresh beverage at the Waitemata Harbour, a premium harbor.

You will want to make sure to bring some healthy snacks along for the walk because you may not notice different places to eat as you go on this part of the hike.

It is best to ensure that you understand that you must input the Ferry Building into your mobile device or ensure to use the local municipal iSITE for further guidance.

If you are limited on time, I would suggest that you go on this route because it lets you take in the entire area and understand this excellent place.

Hiking Adventures in Bryce Canyon National Park

Published

on

 

If you are on the lookout for the perfect environment for an adventurous and challenging hike, look no further. Located in the Southern Utah region is the best park that is most suitable for your hiking adventure, the Bryce Canyon National Park. This is a great option to relaxed after you are through playing in $5 minimum deposit casinos.

This park hosts hike lovers from time to time and people even come from other countries in the world to experience the wonder of this park. The landscape and beautiful trails make this a choice venue. There is a rental service at this location if you love to stay behind.

You can enjoy the priceless glimpse of the sunrise and sunset from the different landscape. The part also permits visitors to create traditional camps at different locations for a more adventurous experience.

There are a couple of trails that you can choose from for your hiking adventure, and no matter your level of experience in hiking, you will find a track that matches your taste. Even if you are totally new to hiking, there is something for you at the Bryce Canyon National Park . Below is a list of some of the trails to try when you take a trip to this park.

The Rim Trail

This is the most accessible trail at Bryce Canyon National Park. It is suitable for those who just want to have a good time walking around and savoring the magnificent scenery of the park. From any part of the park, you can connect to this trail as it goes all the way around the park.

When lodging at the Bryce Canyon Lodge, it is a good idea to start your hike from the place known as the sunrise point. Just as the name implies, if you wake up early to start your walk, you’ll be able to watch the sunrise. If you have a camera with you, you’ll take some fantastic pictures.

Also, you’ll get a clear view of the Bryce amphitheater from this point. Just like in an adventure movie, you have to find a way to link up to boat Mesa, and on your way, you walk through some sites like the Mormon temple and Queen garden. This hiking trail is easy, and all you have to deal with is a total of approximately 200 feet elevation. You will surely have a nice time on this trail.

Navajo Loop Trail

On the order of difficulty, this trail comes next after the rim trail. The starting point of this trail begins from the sunset point around the southern area of the Bryce Canyon Lodge. Just like for the rim trail, the trail presents a nice view of the sunset, and with a good camera, you’ll be able to take exciting photo shoots.

Walking this route involves a visit to the Silent City, which is an aesthetic combination of limestone and urban expansion. During the hike, you will also walk through Wall Street, which happens to be a distinctive attraction at the Bryce Canyon park. You won’t ever want to miss the narrow walls. From this point, you may decide to go back to the sunset point or take other shorter hikes like the Peekaboo loop trail and Queen garden trail. Both routes are challenging and adventurous, but you will enjoy every bit of the challenge. After you have done this, you can then go ahead to have some fun in a $5 minimum deposit casino.

Mossy Cave Trail

This Trail presents an entirely different sight than the one that we have previously mentioned. From this trail, you will be able to catch the view of the towers in the park nearby without descending to the amphitheater. This hiking course begins at approximately 4 miles from the entrance to the Bryce Canyon park. However, if you visit this park and would like to enjoy something completely different from the other common tracks, then this is an exciting hiking trail for you to try.

Hiking is more than a walk, it is a fun and adventurous experience. All trails at the Bryce Canyon National Park are worth trying on your next visit. Whether you seek to have some fun or you just want to catch some beautiful scenery and feel close to nature, you will find the right place that suits you. Get ready to have an amazing hiking experience.

Walking the Camino de Santiago Photos

These are my favourite Camino de Santiago Photos from my pilgrimage along the French Way in March. A truly beautiful way to spend a few weeks.

Puenta La Reina Bridge Camino Arrow

El Camino de Santiago kicked my ass. Well technically it kicked my feet. Turns out my minimal preparation for the Camino de Santiago was terrible. After a miserable effort of only 4 days, the doctor in Legrono told me that I wasn’t allowed to go on until me feet healed. I had walked just over 100 km’s and my feet were bloodied and blistered.

To be honest, I was relieved.

The thought of putting back on my shoes made my shudder. For the last 9 km’s I had stumbled along in jandals and socks. One of the travelling fashion sins I vowed I would never break.

So while I have unfinished business with the Way of St James (an upcoming post), I did want to share with you some of my favourite photos from the Camino de Santiago. Because I had yet to reach some of the more “unsavoury” parts of the Camino that Sherry Ott had discovered, every step of my pilgrimage had been beautiful.

There is no way you can get lost on the Camino de Santiago. Arrows, scallop shells and signs point you in the right direction at every bridge, road crossing and intersection.

Reaching the top of Alto Pedron gave views back the way I had come from Pamplona, as well as views to where I was going. The rocky path on the way down proved to be my ultimate downfall, as my too small shoes caused my toes to smash into the front.

There were so many beautiful old churches along the Camino de Santiago. But since I was walking in early March, it seemed that most were yet to open for the busier summer season.

And between every small village the well-maintained pathways of the French Way wound across the spectacular Spanish countryside.

Puenta La Reina has one of the most amazing bridges I have ever seen. It was also the 1st village I had the pleasure of sleeping in after busy Pamplona.

Most mornings I was up and walking before the sun began to sprinkle across the horizon.

Every village and town was built on a small hill. Sure it looks beautiful until you realise you have to go back up again to go through them all!

While there were only about 20 pilgrims walking each section every day, it wasn’t uncommon for you to encounter them all. The people I met along the Camino de Santiago were some of the most inspiring and remarkable people I have ever spoken to. They are the ones that make the pilrgimage so special.

Every village had at least one ancient church and it wasn’t uncommon to find them dotting the landscape in remote locations either.

I have travelled through Spain in the past, including cycling in Costa Brava and surfing in San Sebastian with both independent planning and a vacation planner. But having the opportunity to walk at my own pace through some of the most beautiful scenery in Spain on the Camino de Santiago has so far topped them all.
