Hungry Crab At Galapagos Islands

Image Crab-Galapagos-Islands.jpg

The hungry crab at the Galapagos Islands is probably one of the coolest things I have ever seen. I don’t think that anyone (besides a crab researcher or a beach bum) has seen a crab actually eating.  Most of us have seen crabs just running away from us. While at the Galapagos Islands with Quasar Expeditions we were roaming... (c) WanderingTrader: Travel Blog. Living Overseas. Day Trading. - Read entire story here. … [Read more]

Interview with Mountaineer Wim Smets

Image Mount-Everest-Climb.jpg

Next month I will do the Mount Everest Base Camp Trek and will go till the top of Kala Patthar located at an altitude of 18,193 ft (5,545 m). Climbing to the Roof of the World - the top of the Mount Everest - is an incredible achievement; one that definitely fascinates me. I will probably never make it to the top myself but one of my fellow citizens - Wim Smets - did. This adventurous spirit climbed the highest mountains in the world, did a North Pole expedition, ran the Sahara marathon ... When we met for a drink...

Spun: Down and Out in Bangkok Part 2

Spun. The fever dream is on me, has me in it’s clutches. I’ll black out for three days and stumble about Bangkok but to me it will feel like a week.

But I’ve never experienced anything like this. I’m going down. And I’m going down hard. The first nightmare is the weirdest. My backpack keeps morphing into an ...

Afternoon on a Sailing Yacht Charter Off Malta

Image sailing_yacht_fun_malta-720x540.jpg

Good day, Today I want to share with you a video from an afternoon sailing on a yacht off the coast of Malta. While I was on the plane approaching the island I was involved in some light banter with one of the flight attendants and they said you positively have to go sailing. Turns out they couldn’t be more correct and if you do come, I highly recommend this activity for those that are traveling as a couple, group or family. I went with a group of new friends and loved every minute of it. You’ll get picked up in the harbor and go for a little sail while enjoying some fine wine; afterward you’ll pull into a bay and eat a delicious lunch with all the flavors of the Mediterranean that you can imagine. Following that it’s back to sailing and if you’re lucky, will get to experience the Grand Habour in all its splendor. I was there in April and the weather was great but definitely recommend bringing a sweater as it can get cooler at sea. Should you be going to … [Read more]

The Top 9 Myths About West Africa

Image africa_ndvi_200409.jpg

What comes to mind when you think about West Africa? Most people would struggle to answer that question. They would probably cite the same ideas they have about Africa in general. If you’re a bit more knowledgeable, you might have a few specific ideas, but how accurate are they? When I entered Africa in March 2013, I knew little about the continent. I had never set foot in Africa, yet I was starting a four-year trip to all 54 Africa countries (see image on the right). I began with spending three months in Morocco (which is considered North Africa, so we won’t cover it here), and then I spent the next year in every West African country. Here are 9 commonly held beliefs about West Africa. I’ll confessed that I believed a few of them before coming here. Learn why they’re false. The Top 9 Myths About West Africa 9.

Surviving New Zealand’s Hardest Hike

Image dusky-track-river.jpg

The Dusky Track is only accessible by boat; South Island, New Zealand; Photograph by Eric Liefer Fiordland National Park, tucked away far within New Zealand’s South Island, has the notorious claim to fame as one of the wettest locations in the southern hemisphere; and with a mean annual rainfall of 268 inches, it is not just a claim but a rudely saturated reality. For those who wish to experience the spectacle, your options are quite limited, for the vast majority of the place is simply inaccessible. The most common option: Take the path of least resistance and make the pilgrimage to Milford Sound. Just follow the well-marked road signs, souvenir shops, and the rest of the camper vans and tourists. The much less common decision: Throw yourself off the deep end by accepting the challenge of the country’s hardest trail, the infamous Dusky Track, an 84-kilometer route that impossibly forces its way through this impermeable landscape. Just follow the little orange triangles. … [Read more]

Shackleton’s Legacy: Antarctic Exploration a Century After Endurance

Image Shack1.jpg

1914-2014: An historic anniversary for Antarctic exploration This year marks the 100th anniversary of an event celebrated by historians, explorers and Antarctic enthusiasts around the world. In 1914, Sir Ernest Shackleton and his crew of 27 brave souls set out aboard The Endurance in hopes of becoming the first explorers to traverse the Antarctic continent. Their aptly named ship became frozen in ice before reaching shore, and although Shackleton and his crew never had the chance to fulfill their mission, the events that followed would come to be regarded as one of the most extraordinary examples of leadership and exploration in history. Endurance: A Triumph of the Human Spirit Locked in the grips of the Antarctic’s unyielding elements, with minimal supplies and no hope of rescue, Shackleton and his crew persevered through insurmountable obstacles. The Endurance was eventually crushed by the Antarctic’s melting ice pack, and the crew was forced to set up camp on ice floes. Eventually … [Read more]
