Costa Rica Traverse

I don't think my feet have touched the ground since I've returned from Costa Rica so any relaxation achieved on the trip is rapidly disappearing sadly. However, just a quick note to say that it was the most amazing trip I've ever done. Danny our guide was phenomenal - his ability to keep us upbeat and motivated and telling us information on a need to know basis was fantastic - I wish he could be our guide on every trip I do in the future! The rest of his team was also fantastic - the logistics behind the trip were critical but totally seemless as we trudged through the rainforest and up vertical mud slopes in the rain. I was going to go on a Patagonia trek but delighted that I was advised to do this trip - it really was a challenge and I was nervous about my levels of fitness but I realise now that I'm fitter than I thought I was - long may I continue to keep the fitness up although last week I took it easy. Thanks again to WE for their excellent advice to do this trip - I'm so happy I did and have met some great people as a result!

Sri Lanka is Soaring

27/02/2013

Elephants in Sri LankaSri Lanka is soaring as a destination in its own right, now elevated into the spotlight after landing in the #1 spot on the coveted Lonely Planet Best Country List in 2013. More than just an extension or stop over from India, Sri Lanka has its own unique charm that should not be overlooked.

After over two decades of civil war and political turmoil this magical island is now open for international travellers to discover. Low-cost flights and affordable prices offer amazing value for money and allow you to truly get off the beaten track while exploring divine ancient cities, pristine natural landscapes and diverse national parks.

Cycle through misty highlands and dense jungles, take a wildlife safari in Minneriya National Park to spot wild elephants, white water raft down the Kelani River, trek through tea plantations and rice paddies, relax on divine coastlines, tour the breathtaking grandeur of the ancient city of Anuradhapura, or sample delectable dishes with chef escort Peter Kuruvita.
