The Wide Wild West

When we started serious travel over 20 years ago the USA was never near the top of our agenda, to be honest it was never on our original list of must see places at all. However with the developing world reasonably well covered our time had come to visit our cousins across the pond. We started our holiday with a couple of added days in San Francisco. Highly recommended. It is a city easily negotiated with local transport and there are sights not to be missed. You can reach the Golden Gate Bridge from the city centre using local buses, ask for a transfer and, if a senior, accept a substantial discount and proffered seat. A return walk across the 1.7 mile span of the bridge is invigorating and gives magnificent views of the harbour. Have care for the trendy cyclists who, head down, pedal the pathway looking only to knock seconds off a previous best. Cable Cars are a nostalgic way of getting to and around downtown, the boardwalks and Chinatown. The Californian line, which is the least crowded, ends close to the Holiday Inn where day passes can be purchased. With stops every couple of blocks you can hop on and hold on as the locals always did but expect to queue in the most popular spots. The National Parks visited on the tour are magnificent and each very different with a range of walks and activities to be savoured individually depending upon fitness and ability. We cannot, as others, tell of the elation of reaching Angels Landing, wallowing waist deep in the Zion Narrows or descending perilous tracks into deep canyons. However we can recount we had some wonderful peaceful hikes in breath-taking locations at our own pace and distance. Free shuttle buses are operated by park authorities which make it possible to link easy-going and moderate hiking routes to viewpoints and to otherwise enjoy full days in the park. Monument Valley, Death Valley, Lakes, Dams and the sheer magnificence of scenery just kept rolling out ahead of us as we journeyed on through what is really just a small part of the west of this immense country. We are not hedonistic travellers, preferring natural wonders and historic edifices of an ancient world than modernity, so Las Vegas held little lure for us but we were to be dumfounded by its temples devoted to Lady Luck. Based in a prestigious central hotel we were well placed to explore every other luxurious resort on The Strip. We went to Paris, Venice, Rome and Egypt all in the course of one day and two evenings. Each vista faithfully reconstructed with no expense spared, such are the profits of the relentless gaming which epitomises this city. Unbelievable! We just loved it! The final day was a drive across desert to Los Angeles where this particular trip ended at Custom Hotel LAX with an immediate evening flight for UK participants. Again we added to the schedule, pre-booked two nights there and once more made use of local transport. We joined the old hippies and young things at Santa Monica Pier, the end of Route 66, and also chilled out on Venice Beach and Boardwalk. “They playing our song Gal?” “Yea Man!”

Kilimanjaro Rongai route, Tanzania

Tiring.........

The important thing to bear in mind with this trek is that, with the exception of the summit day, the walking is pretty dull. I've trekked extensively in Nepal, Europe and the UK and the scenery on Kili is less interesting and less varied than pretty much anywhere else I've been. If you took away the summit, no one would be that interested in walking there. Yes, the scenery does change from day to day - you start off in forest, then that becomes scrubland as you get higher - but there isn't the interest of variety which is present in other places. Therefore, I look at this trek as a challenge, rather than something to do for the sake of enjoyment. The summit day is very, very, very tough - six hours of steep climbing on gravel/scree, with an ascent of around 1200m, not much in the way of oxygen and in the dark, with the temperature comfortably below freezing. It's not so much about personal fitness as how well you cope with the altitude and how mentally tough you are. If you follow the advice from the guides, it'll certainly help though. The contribution of the guides to the success of our group cannot be underestimated - they were fantastic, particularly on the summit day.

Cycle the back Roads of Sri Lanka

This was my first cycling holiday and Exodus made it a fantastic experience, very well organised and what a fantastic island, the people are so friendly , the scenery out of this world and the roads although busy in some towns actually felt very safe as the other drivers are very courteous to a group of cyclists. Great choice of food and the accommodation was far better than I expected.

Nha Trang, Vietnam

Excellent introduction to a fascinating country

This is a great way to experience a lot of Vietnam in very short period of time. Using the bikes allows you to get to parts that you simply wouldn't get to on a more conventional coach-based tour; small lanes and roads that are just about wide enough to get a bike through. The trip shows aspects of recent and ancient Vietnamese history in equal measure and, if you ask the right questions, you can get a feel for life is like in Vietnam in the here and now.

Puglian feast

This was a great trip and wonderful introduction to a largely unspoilt area of Italy. The walks were easy and through some great agricultural and ancient landscapes. The food was lovely and very plentiful and unlike the cuisine of other areas I have visited. The hotels were very characterful especially the Hotel in Matera with stunning views of the old city.

A week in Jordan

This was the most amazing trip I have ever been on - just wonderful from every aspect! Our tour leader was fantastic - the best I have ever come across in terms of wealth of knowledge, personality and enthusiasm in helping us to get to know his country from every aspect; the food (which we were largely able to choose ourselves at restaurants each night) was fabulous and catered for every diet, value for money was outstanding as airport transfers and entry to all sites we visited was included in the trip fee, and the content was incredibly comprehensive - we covered so much ground and saw so many wonderful things in a week that we all said we felt as if we'd been in Jordan for 3-4 weeks! I cannot recommend this trip highly enough if you are interested in history, archaeology and lots of fabulous ruins!

Spanish Heartlands

Brilliant holiday. The walks were fabulous, good lengths that could be modified to suit different abilities, and very varied. The views were really amazing when we got onto the ridges. Eloi, the hotel owner, couldn't do enough to make us welcome, and the food was excellent.
