What: Petra, Wadi Rum & The Dead Sea
When: September 2013
With: On the Go (Totally Jordan)

When I first decided to go to Jordan, I was ready for a nice relaxing trip, with some lazy sightseeing and pretty picture taking. With little research, and wanting to go check out an Indiana Jones hot spot, little did I know, there was adventure around every corner. Don’t get me wrong, it was a fabulous surprise, but I definitely didn’t expect what I had found.

It doesn’t…

Extreme Fun: Everest Base Camp

on route to Everest (no it is not behind me- but the view is still pretty great)

Where: Nepal (Various)

What:   Everest Base Camp Trek
When:  May 2013
With:  G-Adventures (Everest Adventure ANEA)

 

 When I embarked on this journey, I had anticipated this trip to be something special, and was it ever!

I’m not all too sure what expectations I had- whether I would enjoy it, or if it would be quite as amazing as I hoped it would be- whatever they were though, everything I had imagined was exceeded and then some.

I am still trying to gather my feelings about this…

Nazca

Peru is a country filled with mystifying history. Not your standard destination, the kind of place you ask “how did this get here?” type of questions.

Some of these images are of monkeys, hummingbirds, spiders, lizards and other creatures. It is still questioned to this day what they symbolized.

Many of these shapes are massive, some over…

I decided to focus my magazine on off-beat travelling fun. This was about 6 years ago now. In that magazine I had written an article on sand boarding. I remember myself wanting to go out and do it so badly! Although now it is popping up in more and more destinations, South Africa was one of the starting places…

BUNGEE

I would like to think of myself as being adventurous. Testing my mental boundaries is a lot of fun. Those feelings of fear and adrenaline combined are so euphoric. Not too many things scare me- and as much as I want to say jumping off a bridge was not terrifying, it really was. When your heels are on the edge of the platform, your arms spread wide open, the only thing left to do is jump! It is such an exhilarating feeling. It gives you an…
