I’ve had my hiking pack for over three years now and it’s certainly been places. That pack and I have been to Everest Base Camp twice and it’s had lots of ‘stuff’ stuffed into it. It’s been drenched in the Himalayan monsoon, it’s been covered in snow and it’s been... read more
I live in Perth and, up till recently, I’d never set foot on the Bibbulmun Track. I’m a trekker, I’ve trekked to Everest Base camp – twice – yet I’ve never walked on the closest long distance track to my home. The Bibbulmun Track... read more
As some of you may know I was in Nepal when the country was rocked by the major earthquake on 25th April this year. I’d completed my trek and was sitting in the lobby of my hotel when the earth, quite literally, moved and it’s not an experience I’d ever want to... read more

The countdown is definitely on. It’s nearly two years now since I did the Everest Base Camp Trek and would you believe, it’s only 30 days now till I head back up into the Himalayas to have a go at the slightly more strenuous Everest Circuit Trek. Fingers... read more
Continuing on from my post on ‘What to pack for your Everest Base Camp Trek: Part 1′ in which I gave you a list of the tops that I took with me on my trek a couple of years ago, and which I’m intending to take with me when I head into the Himalayas... read more
It’s 7 weeks today till I fly out to Kathmandu and 8 weeks today till I step onto a little plane that will navigate its way up through the lower slopes of the Himalayas to deposit me on a little runway in Lukla, 2,860 metres above the height that I normally... read more
