Costa Rica Traverse

The trip was an amazing experience. As expected it was physically tough but worth every drop of sweat and mud (no blood fortunately). For me personally, I found the heat hard to adjust to. I expected us to benefit from the shade of the rainforest more than we did and I guess going from a Scottish winter to an equatorial country didn't help. Having said that it didn't detract from my enjoyment, just made it harder work. We were also lucky because all 13 of us got on very well and it was a good mix of people. A special mention has to go to the guides and Danny in particular. I remember when we did the Cycling in the Andes that the guides were good but Danny was excellent. As well as being extraordinarily fit and knowledgeable about adventure stuff he was passionate about Costa Rica, it's environment and future. He had a great sense of humour and as if all that weren't enough he and his team were superb cooks. Although this wasn't everyone's idea of a relaxing holiday I came home envigorated and motivated with stacks of energy - apart from having to negotiate Terminal 5 on it's second day of chaos! I've already been on your website looking for the next potential challenge, if only work didn't get in the way.

Ireland

Ireland

An island in the Atlantic Ocean 80km to the west of Britain across the Irish Sea, Ireland stretches 500km from its northern to southern tips.  Full of fascinating myths and legends, Ireland is a land of rich history and culture. With a population of 3.96 million this is a land famous for its welcoming pubs, music and oratory tradition.

The interior is largely made up of flat countryside, raised bogs and gentle rolling hills.  Surrounded by rugged hills and low mountains, Ireland is home to a wealth of opportunities for day walkers and serious hikers alike.

The Weather in Ireland

The Atlantic Ocean is a dominant influence on Ireland's climate.  The average annual temperature is about 9 °C. Temperatures tend to be somewhat more extreme in the middle and east of the country than in other parts. 

July and August are very popular months to visit Ireland, with warm weather, longer days and lots of festivals going on!  Equally as delightful are spring and autumn.  In winter the temperature intermittently drops below freezing and snow is relatively scarce. However whatever the time of year it tends to rain alot in Ireland.  In places such as Kerry it rains on as many as 270 days of the year.
