Larapinta Trek

I thought I would just drop you a note and let you know that the Larapinta Trek George & I did a couple of weeks ago was absolutely sensational. The group, the weather, the scenery, the terrain, the food, the campsites, the stars at night, and not to forget our fabulous 2 guides, Max S!! and Victor Trail was just a holiday that will stay with us for a long time. The group of people was just fantastic and everyone just got on well and as for Max & Victor, if I ever plan another Australian adventure I will do my utmost to ensure one of them if not both were the guides, the nicest, funniest and most of all very professional fellows, they kept the group in great spirits and the knowledge they both have is just outstanding, especially Max for such a young fellow. They did a great job in camp setting everything out for us, all we had to do was enjoy it. I can't sign off without mentioning the food, what these 2 guys whipped up for us everyday, breakfast, lunch on the track was just unbelievable what they carried and dinner - always 3 courses and always different, I doubt anyone lost too much wait on this trek. It was just a great pleasure to have meet 2 such great fun fellows.
Now to go off and think about what I will do next !!!!

Dubrovnik and the Dalmatian Coast

George Bernard Shaw said 'those who seek paradise on Earth should come to Dubrovnik', also describing it as 'the pearl of the Adriatic'. With its impressive old town and dominating position on the Adriatic coast, the city is visually stunning and deserving of both Shaw's remarks and its UNESCO World Heritage status. Based on a comfortable boat, the trip begins in Dubrovnik where time is set aside to explore the narrow streets and lively town. Extending westerly into the Mediterranean the islands of southern Dalmatia are best explored by bike. Highlights include visiting the islands of Korcula and Mljet. This trip also includes an excursion across the Bosnian border to the beautiful historic town of Mostar.

traveller reviews

This is well polished organization, with terrific, easy-going guides that were prepared! The boat was so accommodating and food always plentiful and delicious. That said, the guides made this trip. They were well informed and very committed to our vacation. They were extremely knowledgeable about their countries and willing to share it but not in the least boastful. I am almost afraid to try another trip as I am sure this one, with its guides, cannot be topped. The whole scenery, location, activity is extremely romantic in a rustic sense. The Croatian people are extremely hospitable and all have an excellent command of the English language among others. Although they are very used to tourists they are not yet spoiled and it is such a peaceful, serene, beautiful country. We always felt VERY safe.
