KENYA & TANZANIA ADVENTURE

Wow I've done a safari and road trip - 2400 kilometres - in Africa. Zanzibar is a brilliant place for a beach holiday - loads of white sand and turquoise ,warm sea. The African sunsets and night skys were worth the trip in themselves. And that's before you get to the animals. And Kilimanjaro. I walked up the first stage of the mountain. Through rainforest. Uphill. Over very rough ground. Nearly killed me but I got there. We had to leave Kenya in a bit of a hurry because of fears of post election troubles. In the event nothing materialised but good to know that Exodus was looking after our wellbeing.   Camping wasn't much of a hardship though I'd definitely recommend paying the single supplement. The campsites ranged from well organised with a bar, to a fenced field with a guard with an AK47, to a night in the wilderness in the Serengetti where you have to have your wits about when you get up in the night. Erecting and dismantling the tents was hard work at first but we soon got the hang of it, helping each other. There were 6 of us.  The group worked well and we had lots of fun. The transport was fit for purpose with cool box, freezer, power sockets for UK plugs. It was comfortable enough. If group numbers meant you were restricted to just one locker each, there wouldn't be much storage space. The food is fine , given that it's cooked on just a couple of gas rings. There's plenty of opportunity to buy booze, though do plan ahead.

PETRA & WADI RUM TREK

A thoroughly enjoyable trip. Great desert and rock scenery on the Wadi Rum trek. Ruins of Petra were a lot bigger and more spectacular than I was expecting. Jordan felt a lot safer than I had been expecting, given the troubles in surrounding countries.

PATAGONIAN HIGHLIGHTS

Fully up to my expectations - we saw everything the brochure promised.   A big country in many ways - high peaks, huge glaciers, and vast open spaces.   It helped that we were lucky with the weather on the days when it really mattered!

PETRA & WADI RUM TREK

A very good trip to a fine (and safe) country. Give Jordan a try. The surrounding countries may be volatile but it is very different. Great walking.

KENYA & TANZANIA ADVENTURE

I'm very brown and really pleased with myself. I've done a safari and road trip - 2400 kilometres - in Africa.

CUBA: LA ISLA GRANDE

Cuba wasn't quite as I had expected. I didn't realise how big the island was, so there was a lot of time spent on the coach the first week, and how poor and run down many places are.  In retrospect, I might have just chosen the shorter tour and had a week relaxing on the beach and soaking up a bit more of the atmosphere in Havana. But I did love all the rum cocktails, we even had rum in the fruit juice drink at the rest stops en route, and we did see most of the island.

Tiger crossing the path, India

LAND OF THE TIGER

This trip was just what I had waited the best part of my life for - to see a tiger in its natural surroundings.  As usual, it was well organised and went without a hitch despite the "jobs worth" game reserve officials.

WALKING THE AMALFI COAST

Our group was excellent company so the fact that the walking was very slow didn't really matter, as with really interesting chat and amazing scenery, I had a really good time!
