    A Home Far Away From Home (Vietnam)

    One of my last holidays was when i was traveling with my friends to Vietnam. After seeing bustling Hanoi and the surrounding areas we needed to get out to a more quiet and relaxing place. But where to go? We were reading in the guidebook about one Place called Sapa, a place nobody of us had ever heard before. The things we were reading sounded fine but the downside was that we had to go with the train for 16 hours followed by a bus trip of another 4 hours to get there. So we were really considering whether we do this trip or not because we didn´t have so much time especially no time for wasting.

    Braving the Winter Cold: Hiking at Yongmunsan Mountain (용문산) in the Snow

    Want to be hardcore? Want to test your endurance? Then why not climb a 1,157.2 m (3,797 ft) mountain in the middle of the snowy winter cold. And why not get lost in the mountain while you are at it, hiking through the fresh snow only to end up at a Buddhist temple where monks proceed to give you chocolate and drive you off the mountain. Yup, my hike on Yongmunsan Mountain (용문산) just 45km out of Seoul, definitely gave us an exciting day trip away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

    Mount Pinatubo Adventure Trek

    As we worked our way through the ashen gullies of Mount Pinatubo's shoulder, I admired the signs of rebirth underway: the steady stream of water that skipped over horsetails, tadpoles and pumice stones painted with sulfur and iron; the moss, thickets and tree ferns carpeting the ravines beneath distant avian cawing; and Aeta children keenly observing our ascent into the gaping cerulean mouth of Apo Namallari-- the almighty god of this sacred mountain, whose pyroclastic power the world witnessed during the eruption of June 1991, the largest in living memory.

    Selmun - Perfect for that Lazy Sunday Afternoon Walk

    Sundays in Malta, especially in winter (when hitting the beach is not an option), can turn out to be quite a bit of a drag. You can’t shop 'til you drop or head to the amusement park (cause there isn’t one) so what I suggest you do is grab your dog and your camera and head out for a walk in the countryside. There are various interesting rural areas to choose from, but today I’m going to focus on one in particular on the northern part of the island: Selmun.

    Bukit Tabur; Rainy n' Misty

    29th December 2008, this is where I was, I went to Bukit Tabur to get myself away from the city, far away from work, I just wanted to breathe with empty mind, thinking of nothing but to reach to the peak of this hill. It was raining when we arrived the hillside, 7am. We were 50/50 to decide whether to go for it or not. Well, we decided to take a special opportunity of this rainy trip up. Wet, slippery, cold and misty... Definitely adventurous than normal.

    Kuala Kubu Bharu Waterfall

    This waterfall is cool, the water flushing is really strong and fun. The idea of going to this waterfall is to get the total jungle adventures kind of feeling. Being out of the big city, traveling and trekking up hill. Listening to the beautiful sounds of nature. When we were trekking up looking for the waterfall, the water splashing sounds were already been heard and brought all the excitement even before we actually saw the waterfall. Kuala Kubu Bharu itself, is quite a small country sites, where there are still people and community there maintaining the whole place.
