Since I was going to conquer the mountain alone, I decided to sign up for the geological tour that was hosted by the Mount St. Helen’s Institute

“If you are a hiker in good shape, this hike will tear you apart. All you’ll be able to say is, “I can’t take it much longer!” However, if you are a hiker in excellent shape, who has hiked Mount Defiance the hard way, you may have so much fun you’ll barely realize how sore you are hiking this mountain.”

During other times, I would have considered that many people as very few, but the sight of other humans now is neither comforting nor very encouraging

While searching for a suitable place to set the tent, we drove past a village landing in an area almost devoid of humans.

It was just so strange and funny going to another country without any need to drive, take a train or a plane, but I must say that it was more relaxed and I wish it could always be like that

If you take a boat you will be able to see Switzerland on your left, with many beautiful houses right on the water and Germany on the right, with all the elegant restaurants of Costance.

In 2003, UNESCO gave Harar the “City of Peace Prize” for the peaceful co-existence of its ethnic and religious communities

Khat, chat or qat, depending on the spelling, is classified as an illegal drug in most of the western world but it’s perfectly acceptable in the Horn of Africa, where it’s seen as a mild stimulant or, jokingly, a coffee substitute. In Harar, where the world’s best quality is grown due to its perfect altitude and soil, it’s not only acceptable but as I was to discover, a part of daily life.

We here in Canada were lucky enough to escape the worst of the restrictions that other parts of the world saw

Keywords: Day Trips, Algonquin Park, Drummer Lake, Ragged Lake, Smoke Lake, Westward Lake, Wisp Lake

As part of the lockdown, all provincial parks were closed, including Algonquin. This stayed in effect until the end of May, when they opened again, first for day trip use and, as of June 1, for backcountry trips as well. Despite this loosening of restrictions, it’s likely going to be a while before I get out on an overnight trip.

Day Trips from Ho Chi Minh city to Mekong River Delta and Cu Chi Tunnels

Keywords: travel, adventure, vietnam

We had a couple of individual days away from the city for these excursion and they were such eye-openers and a very different perspective on this region of Vietnam. With an early start one day and a late evening return to our hotel the other, we felt the trips were such a contrast to the other experiences we had on our stay in Ho Chi Minh and added such depth to our overall stay.

“Tři oříšky pro Popelku” (English title “Three Wishes for Cinderella” [1973]) — created jointly by the film industries of the former Czechoslovakia and former East Germany, easily one of the most successful of Czech films as far as export is concerned, a Christmas classic — features Švihov castle, south of Plzeň in Czech Republic

Originally owned by the powerful noble house of Rýzmberk, the castle’s present appearance dates to a rebuilding that took place in the late 15th and early 16th centuries following the Hussite Wars.

That reconstruction was overseen by prominent architect of the time, Benedikt Rejt. Following the reconstruction, the castle was the most important and well fortified of its type in Bohemia. Consisting of inner and outer sections as well as two moats, it would have taken a very determined and well equiped adversary to stand a chance of successfully laying seige to it.

The castle changed hands in 1548. However, due to poor management, the House of Říčany who had purchased it were forced to sell it just fifty years later. The castle’s last noble owners, the venerable and prominent Czernin family, held the castle from 1598 until it was seized by the state following the Second World War.
