Fishing In Colombia
My friends and I fishing in Tayrona National Park

While in Colombia I made friends with a guy from Buenos Aires. He ended up traveling with us for 9 or 10 days so we visited a lot of the same places. He carried one of the little Go Pro cameras with him and made this video when he got home. The video is pretty cool, and I really like the song he chose, "Good As Gold" by Tiga.

The New7Wonders Foundation has recently provisionally nominated the New 7 Wonders of Nature from Zurich, Switzerland. The list was selected by a combination of votes and "expert judging" from a group of 28 finalists. There are some big ones missing like the Grand Canyon and Great Barrier Reef. I'm not sure I like this list very much, but I thought it was worth posting.

Visit Kravice Waterfalls in Bosnia

Kravice Falls
A wide view of the Kravice Waterfalls

The Kravice Waterfalls on the Trebizat River in Bosnia are some of the coolest I've been to. Tucked away in the trees just across the border from Crotia, the waterfall spans 120m (~390 feet) and falls 25m (~80 feet). The Kravice Falls area also has a little cafe, a rope swing, a picnic area, and a place to camp if you like. I had never heard of these waterfalls before arriving in Dubrovnik, I suppose Bosnia is not the most traveled of places, but these falls were well worth the visit.

Everest Base Camp Trek Journal – Day 10

Crossing Flooded River Everest
Crossing a river which flooded and overtook the trail during the monsoon rains of day 10

When we woke up it was still raining heavily. There's nothing to do in Pangboche so the idea of staying there sounded worse than walking in the rain. Once we got confirmation from Boo that we could move our flight back up, it was worth pushing through to get to Namche today. Out into the rain we went, shortly before 11 AM. The rain meant that small streams were now gushing rivers, and there were massive waterfalls everywhere. Rivers were overflowing to the point that rocks that you used to be able to walk across were completely underwater. Jit was picking up rocks and carrying them across the rivers to make paths for us. It was crazy.

Everest Base Camp Trek Journal – Day 1

Start Everest Trek
The start of the Everest Base Camp Trail in Lukla

Sam and I arrived late last night into Kathmandu where we met up with Dan, Andrew, and Mike. We had a 4:30 AM wake up call so that we could make our 6 AM flight to Lukla and start our trek! The flight had gorgeous views but was decidedly one of the sketchiest flights we had ever been on. We got situated in Lukla then started off. We hiked for about 4 1/2 hours with stops for photos and a long lunch. Today was the easy day. Only about 3 hours of actual hiking and a lot of downhill. Our guide is named Bhuwan, and he agreed to let us call him Boo. We also have 3 porters - Jit, Case, and Milar.

Arenal Volcano National Park Tour, Costa Rica

Arenal Volcano & The Jungle Around It, Costa Rica
Views of Arenal Volcano surrounded by jungle

A opportunity to have an up close and personal encounter with one of the top 10 most active volcanos in the world may be an alarming and somewhat daunting prospect to many, but combining spectacular and breathtaking surroundings with a chance to witness a volcano in full flow (excuse the pun!), results in the Arenal Volcano National Park being a place definately worth checking out.  The Volcano itself, set amongst a wildlife infested rainforest, is located roughly 16km west of La Fortuna, the areas most popular and well catered for local town. This is in fact where the majority of tours operate from and due to the number of hostels and budget hotels it provides an ideal location for any visitor who wishes to spend some time in the area.

Climbing Mt. Whitney In the Snow Trip Report & Guide

Struggling At the End of the Chute
Me struggling as I finish the hike up the Mt. Whitney snow chute

Mt. Whitney, the tallest point in the Sierra Nevadas and continental United States, is a popular climb during the California summer months. At around 21 miles round trip, climbing 6,132ft up to the peak at 14,497ft (4,418.69m), the hike is a doable in a day, but a challenge for those not in good shape (like me).  As if it weren't enough of a challenge already, we attempted the summit early in the season while it still had a lot of snow cover.

Blue Mountains, Just Outside of Sydney

Wentworth Falls, Australia
Wentworth Falls from the viewpoint across the canyon. You can't even see the entire thing!

The Blue Mountains are just a couple hours away from Central Sydney, and worth a visit if you have a few days. There are several tours operating out of Sydney, they cost about $70 aud and provide round trip transport, a guide, tea and cookies. The tour we went on included a boat cruise from Olympic Park Wharf to Circular Quay as well, stopping at Darling Harbor. This was a pleasant surprise as it meant we got a quick overview of Olympic Park also which was pretty cool, and saved me the train ride and time doing it myself.
