Innsbruck, Austria – Part 2 (April 14th – 16th, 2018)

April 14th The day was shaping up to be another beauty and so I knew it was the day to go up to the top of mountain that was across town. There is the Nordkette cable car that will bring you from the main town level up past the Alpine Zoo to the Hungerburg station … Continue reading Innsbruck, Austria – Part 2 (April 14th – 16th, 2018)

Post-Greenstone/Routeburn Recovery Process & Milford Sound (January 8th – 14th, 2018)

January 8th We were basically out of food at this point. We had two pretty small granola bars so we each ate one. We got a late start since we were both exhausted from our 44 kilometers hiked over the last two days. We didn't have very far to go (we thought about 7 kilometers … Continue reading Post-Greenstone/Routeburn Recovery Process & Milford Sound (January 8th – 14th, 2018)

Abel Tasman National Park (December 20th, 2017)

While I was in Paihia doing the Hole in the Rock Cruise, I met that couple from the UK and the lady told me I should take the water taxi in the morning and then walk back to the campground. I had planned on doing that until I saw an option called "Walk, Sail, and … Continue reading Abel Tasman National Park (December 20th, 2017)

Luang Prabang and Boat Trip, Laos (November 6th through 8th, 2017)

November 6th Today we were driving from Vangvieng to Luang Prabang, a city further northwest. Our guides had forwarned us that the road, the whole trip, would be very hilly and curvy and to be aware that motion sickness might rear its ugly head if not careful. Well, they weren't kidding. I've been to Puerto … Continue reading Luang Prabang and Boat Trip, Laos (November 6th through 8th, 2017)

Cambodia (October 16th, 17th, and… To Be Continued)

October 16th I feel like I've experienced so much already and this trip is only two days in!! Driving to Cambodia: we left the Bangkok Center Hotel and 6:30AM. It took a while to get outside the metropolitan area that is Bangkok. As we drove, the area became more and more rural. On a side … Continue reading Cambodia (October 16th, 17th, and… To Be Continued)

Tour Group Gathering

Sunday, October 15th, I went down for breakfast, anxious to see what the day would bring. As I sat there and ate, I noticed several foreigner-looking folks (meaning not Thai people) who I thought must be here for the G Adventure tour.  Apparently there are four or five tours leaving today or tomorrow. My tour … Continue reading Tour Group Gathering

Zion National Park, Springdale, Utah (September 6 and 7)

Zion National Park is only about 45 minutes from St. George so we didn't rush our morning. Come to think of it, we really didn't rush many of our mornings at all! :-p Anyway, we had dinner the previous evening at Chili's and our server said we should have breakfast at Oscar's Cafe in Springdale, … Continue reading Zion National Park, Springdale, Utah (September 6 and 7)

California (August 31 – September 3)

August 31 My stomach was in a huge knot... I hardly ate any breakfast What I did eat I had to choke down. I hadn't slept well AT ALL; I was up several times over the course of the night trying to figure out how to avoid wildfires while making a justifiable (to myself) quick … Continue reading California (August 31 – September 3)
