Annapurna Trek

This was my second time to Nepal with World Expeditions and previously trekked to Mardi Himal Base Camp. This trip I saw it through my fiancé’s eyes and it gave me such joy to see her so engaged with the culture and natural beauty of Nepal. From being a little apprehensive she has, through the whole WE and Nepalese experience, been converted to an adventure traveller. Ramesh and the team made us feel so special at Christmas and baked all of us a cake for Christmas Eve. A Christmas filled with so much joy and spirit – very special indeed.

I have already started to look at the latest brochure and planning future treks and have been reading with interest about the work you have been undertaking on the camp sites in the Everest region. Congratulations on such a great initiative. As the Head of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability for one of Australia’s largest property groups (DEXUS Property Group) I take a keen interest in the work that you do in this area.

Black Sea and Cappadocia

There is plenty of spice in this itinerary that traces Istanbul to the Black Sea and into Turkey's exquisite Cappadocia. A smorgasbord of Istanbuls' best historic sites sets the tone for this remarkable journey that travels east to Amasra, where we'll enjoy the old town. But it is at Safranbolu where we are mesmerised by the well preserved Ottoman era houses and architecture together with mosques, fountains and Turkish baths. Along the Black Sea our journey takes in Sinop with its old castle and Amasya, famed for its apple orhards, poets and the tombs of Pontus Kings. Spilling further historic intrigue are Bogazkale, the ancient capital of the Hittite Empire till the late 13th century BC. Leaving this behind we travel into the heart of Turkey to the fascinating region of Cappadocia with its rock hewn landscapes where chimneys, churches and scenic valleys characterise the area. Following some day walks that will immerse us in the natural landscapes and to observe quaint villages, we fly from Kayseri to Istanbul.
