We visited Egypt in 2008 and have wonderful memories of ancient mysteries, crowds and noise, street food, swimming, drinking sweet tea, exploring the Nile and riding camels to the top of Mt Sinai….

Here are some photos from our trip. Please feel free to share your experiences too!

We went with Intrepid Travel and would highly recommend them (Jordan and Egypt trip) www.intrepidtravel.com/au

Ecuador. Diversity at the Yasuni National Park.

Yasuni National Park in Ecuador’s North is arguably the most biologically diverse place on Earth. The park hosts an immense variety of tree species, birds, bats, insects, frogs, and fish and is also home to large populations of high food chain carnivores.

“Inhabiting the Yasuní are various different indigenous groups including the Waorani, Shuar and Amazonian Kichwa. Some of these peoples – such as the Tagaeri and Taromenane – still voluntarily maintain no contact with the rest of the world. These warrior-like hunter-gatherers have been living in harmony with nature for centuries. “(http://newint.org/yasuni/about/)
