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 !!!!

Dolomites Family Walk

The Italian Dolomites are a playground waiting to be explored, with thousands of trails winding their way between the characteristic jagged mountains. High in the cliffs are tunnels and bunkers from WWI when the mountains were the setting of fierce fighting. This innovative adventure has been designed to appeal to all members of the family with plenty of opportunity to explore the high mountains and lush valleys, with donkeys carrying your luggage and a local mountain guide sharing the stories of the peaks as you walk. Children as young as 6 can participate if they have a head for heights, like being in charge of donkeys and are keen for the adventure of walking for up to 5 hours a day.
