Antarctic Explorer

Just a belated thank you to World Expeditions for the wonderful trip to the Antarctic my sister and I joined last December. From the first day, it was agreed that 1 day on a plane and 2 1/2 days on a ship was a small price to pay to have the chance to enjoy such an amazing experience. The ship was comfortable and crewed by an excellent staff; the size of the vessel was perfect to allow maximum opportunity for the four dozen or so passengers to enjoy the experience (contrasted to many of the other vessels we saw in port in Ushuaia).
Furthermore, the guides provided were professional, knowledgeable and friendly, adding to the great atmosphere of the journey. Our fellow travellers were an outgoing and welcoming bunch too, which made for a wonderful time. I wholeheartedly commend World Expeditions to anyone as a first rate provider of adventure travel - I can't wait for my next opportunity to try another experience (perhaps Kenya at a quiet moment). My sincere thanks to the team.

The Portuguese Road - Tui to Santiago

Whilst the vast majority of pilgrims to Santiago de Compostela follow the French route across northern Spain, a lesser known but equally impressive route approaches the cathedral from the south. This is the Portuguese pilgrim trail, which is considered to be the 'inspired' way. The sheer humble beauty of the paths and countryside provided many of its medieval walkers with inspiration for songs and verse. Today this trail is hardly ever used, so overcrowding will not be a problem. As the trail from Tui is more than 100km you will qualify for the Compostela certificate upon your arrival in Santiago.This is the last of four stages on our self-guided walking along the Portuguese Camino
