Costa Rica Traverse

I don't think my feet have touched the ground since I've returned from Costa Rica so any relaxation achieved on the trip is rapidly disappearing sadly. However, just a quick note to say that it was the most amazing trip I've ever done. Danny our guide was phenomenal - his ability to keep us upbeat and motivated and telling us information on a need to know basis was fantastic - I wish he could be our guide on every trip I do in the future! The rest of his team was also fantastic - the logistics behind the trip were critical but totally seemless as we trudged through the rainforest and up vertical mud slopes in the rain. I was going to go on a Patagonia trek but delighted that I was advised to do this trip - it really was a challenge and I was nervous about my levels of fitness but I realise now that I'm fitter than I thought I was - long may I continue to keep the fitness up although last week I took it easy. Thanks again to WE for their excellent advice to do this trip - I'm so happy I did and have met some great people as a result!

South Korea by Bike

Situated on the Han River, Seoul is the capital and largest metropolis of South Korea, and the starting point for our tour. In Seoul, bicycle paths are available on both sides of the river and we leave the city on excellent new cycle paths as the Han river leads us into a tranquil rural countryside. Seventy percent of South Korea is covered in natural forest and as the cycle paths follow the rivers the terrain is mostly easy. Restaurants and cafes are located on these paths and you will meet many local cyclists who have embraced Korea's new cycling culture. Each day we will take in different sights, visit cultural icons, stay in a great variety of accommodation and taste a delicious variety of Korean cuisine. On our return to Seoul, which is ringed by mountains, if time allows, we will have the option to hike Mount Inwang, one of Korea's most sacred mountains.
