Llamas on the Inca Trail

If the pandemic threw your bucket list busting plans into disarray, 2022 is the year for making up for lost time. Before taking the plunge, it's worth remembering that some trips are best experienced if you're well prepared.

The Treasury, Petra, Jordan

From the striking carved Treasury in the Rose Red City of Petra to the other-worldly desert landscapes in the Wadi Rum, it comes as no surprise that Jordan has continued to enchant visitors for centuries. Inhabited by humans since the Palaeolithic period, you’ll find that every traveller has left their mark on this beautiful Middle Eastern gem. With most of their monuments remaining remarkably intact, you can still visit Roman amphitheatres, Crusader castles and cities filled with intricate Christian mosaics on our adventures in Jordan.

Pepper Trail: Bird Detective

Guinean Cock of the Rock

The setting: somewhere in New Mexico. Oil field waste pits have not been properly netted to protect wildlife from their toxic mixture. Migratory birds, mistaking these holding ponds for water, have become trapped and died. The oil companies are in clear violation of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, but Fish and Wildlife Special Agents need help in building their case. How many birds have been affected? How many species? Are any endangered? Time to call Pepper Trail, bird detective.

Pepper Trail, Ornithologist

Pepper grew up in the Finger Lakes region of New York State, on a wonderfully dilapidated 100-acre farm. A family trip to Mexico when he was 12 instilled a lifelong love of travel, which has taken him to all seven continents and across the oceans of the world. He earned his Ph.D. from Cornell University for his field study of the mating behavior of the spectacular Guianan cock-of-the-rock in Suriname, and he's since carried out fieldwork on bird behavior and conservation in the Caribbean, Panama, Polynesia, and Vietnam.
