Costa Rica Traverse

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 seamless as we trudged through the rainforest and up vertical mud slopes in the rain.
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!

Cycle Sicily

A stunning cycle in south-east Sicily, the largest island in the Mediterranean. Journey by bike through the Val di Noto, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and discover the most fascinating cities of the region. The tour starts in Caltagirone, where you can climb the 142 step ceramic staircase. Visit the small fishing town of Marzamemi, Noto, the most important Baroque city in Sicily, and Syracuse, the ancient Greek capital. Through the ages, Syracuse has been under Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Arab, Norman, Swabian, Angevin and Spanish rule. It is now home to a charming mix of people and outstanding monuments, some of which are still in use, such as the Greek Theatre. This is an active week which will see you immersed in the history, culture and unspoilt coastline of Sicily.
