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 !!!!

Maldives

Maldives

Take an adventure sailing holiday to the MALDIVES with World Expeditions, one of the world’s leading travel companies.


The Maldives are located southwest of Sri Lanka, on the equator and consist of 1,190 coral islands, forming an archipelago of 26 major atolls. The Maldives stretch 820 kilometers north to south and 120 kilometers east to west. Only 202 of the 1190 islands are inhabited and of these 87 are exclusive resort islands.

The origins of the Maldivian’s are lost in antiquity, but history reveals that the islands have been populated for over 3,000 years ago. Early settlers were travellers on the Silk Route and from the Indus Valley Civilization. Inherently warm, friendly and hospitable by nature, it is easy to feel comfortable and relaxed with a Maldivian.

On World Expeditions sailing adventures in the Maldives you will swim and snorkel the magical waters coming face to face with the amazing plethora of sea life. During the day your boat will cruise between islands, and at night your boat will moore off remote islands with small settlements, a world away from the resorts.

The Weather in Maldives

The Maldives enjoys a hot tropical climate. There are two monsoons, the southwest from May to October and the northeast from November to April. Generally the southwest brings more wind and rain in June and July. The temperature of Maldives ranges between 24°C and 33°C throughout the year. Although the humidity is relatively high, the constant sea breezes help to keep the air moving.

The best time to visit is November to April. It is advised to wear lightweight cottons and linens throughout the year and pack light waterproofs are advised during the rainy season.
