Hiking in Valle de Ricote, MurciaFriday, February 10, 2017 Hiking and Walking by admin
Walking Murcia‘Buenos Dias James and Zach! How are you?’ Alejandro’s eyes are shining as his face cracks into a broad smile, as is usual for when he uses English my housemate and I have slowly been teaching him in class. He jumps out of the driver’s seat and slides open the back door to his mini-van, revealing the rest of our hiking companions, more students of ours. They have promised to show us one of the best-kept secrets in Murcia, Valle de Ricote.
Hiking in Hornstrandir, IcelandWednesday, November 02, 2016 Hiking and Walking by admin
Hornstrandir Nature Reserve is a remote wilderness lying in the north-west tip of Iceland. A gem of emerald green slopes and white glacier peninsulas, isolated and unspoilt, the edge of Europe. The Reserve is surrounded by water, caught between the Bay of Glaciers and the Greenland Sea. It is located in the remote district called the Westfjords, a dizzying cluster of fjords, capes, and glaciers slipping into saltwater. There is nothing for miles but green valleys, pebbled shores, and moist slopes of dandelions and herbs.
Hiking in Mexico: Nevado de ColimaThursday, September 15, 2016 Hiking and Walking by admin
It’s March and a big storm hits central Mexico covering with ice and snow the Zapotepetl, a mountain peak, also known as Nevado de Colima. “It never happens during this period”, the locals say. The case of a bad weather condition makes the rangers close the path to the summit, but you can still wander around and get an amazing view of the Volcan de Fuego, the neighbour active volcano.
St John and St Thomas: Virgin Islands hiking routesThursday, August 18, 2016 Hiking and Walking by admin
“O’win, oko, o’win, oko, o’win, oko” the cadence of the oars digging into the emerald green waters brings a whisper of change across the sea. The beat grows ever faster and faster as their target nears. “O’win, oko, o’win, oko”. There will be a feast this night. “O’win, oko, o’win, oko”. This raid will mark either the end for the Caribs or their foreign invaders who have come to claim these islands. Cries go out to their gods, to the pa’u – the island, the palana – the sea, and to a’talɨ, the cave. Fire shoots out of the side of the giant wooden beast – a galleon, and the chants fade away to jovial music.
