Sherpa Everest

The Sherpa Everest trip that I was on was just excellent. The Aussies , the leaders, cook, sherpas and porters were the best. I just wish we could have had one more beautiful day in Namche so we could have gone to the Everest Hotel. One of the days we walked through 7-8 inches of snow and unfortunately we did not see the mountains. That was a day to remember. The next day it was unbelievably clear in Namche but we had to start our return towards Lukla. All in all, it was great trip.

I was amazed how well I did on the Sherpa Everest trip and I believe the Aussies and the leader were amazed too. I believe it was the way the sherpas lead us up the hills. A nice slow and steady pace along with staying in Namche for two days. Keep up the good work.

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.
