Sherpa Everest

The Sherpa Everest trip that I was on was just excellent. The Aussies , the leaders, cook, sherpas and porters were the best. I just wish we could have had one more beautiful day in Namche so we could have gone to the Everest Hotel. One of the days we walked through 7-8 inches of snow and unfortunately we did not see the mountains. That was a day to remember. The next day it was unbelievably clear in Namche but we had to start our return towards Lukla. All in all, it was great trip.

I was amazed how well I did on the Sherpa Everest trip and I believe the Aussies and the leader were amazed too. I believe it was the way the sherpas lead us up the hills. A nice slow and steady pace along with staying in Namche for two days. Keep up the good work.

Cork Coast Cycle

Quiet roads lined with wild, deeply scented flowers, plunging coastline and rural landscapes, this tour encapsulates the essence of southern Ireland, from rolling green fields to spectacular coastal rides. West Cork is also best known for its colourful villages all of which are brightly painted in a wonderful array of vibrant colours, with hanging baskets brimming with flowers out the front of every pub and shop. This is the more cosmopolitan part of rural Ireland with many choosing to settle in this idyllic setting. After a visit to the colourful town of Kinsale, where artists mingle with fishermen, the cycle route heads to Bantry. This town is situated beneath the sheltering hills at the head of famous Bantry Bay, one of the most beautiful bays along the Irish coasts. The route then heads inland to Killarney, the gateway to the Ring of Kerry. Staying in specially handpicked B&Bs and Inns, the trip offers a full Irish cultural experience.
