Nepal - Community Project Travel

From beginning to the end the trip was fantastic. We had two wonderful guides with completely different strengths. Both leaders were very professional and caring. The trek was magnificent. It was well worth climbing to see the wonderful views once we reached Namche Bazaar. Our guides were wonderful. They did a great job of looking out for us on the trek and a fantastic job of looking after us in camp. The food was amazing. The porters were also really friendly and helpful and deserve medals for lugging all our gear around.


The local villagers at Jumbesi made us feel really welcome and put on a special dinner at the monastery. We were overwhelmed with the welcome they gave us and also the thank you. We had a great bunch of other trekkers on the trip and we were all matched up well with our room mates. We were very lucky with the weather and had day after day of awe inspiring views. There is not one bad thing that I can say about the trip. The trip was a life changing experience and I would love to do it all again. I would like to thank everyone involved. And I hope that one day I get to travel again with World Expeditions.

Utracks - Self Guided and Small Group Adventures :  Italy

From the colourful meadows of Tuscany to the rocky and dramatic coastline of Italy's south, this is a country that offers diversity on a plate.

Mountains feature prominently in Italy's topography. Italy's backbone is formed by the Apennines, from Genoa right down to Sicily. The Po River Valley in the country's northeast forms the largest lowland area. Italy is home to three active volcanoes - Stromboli in the Aeolian Islands, Vesuvius near Naples and Etna on Sicily.

Beauty simply abounds in Italy...
