Almost all places I visit are gems in their own right, but the real ones — they’re often the ones that I either had no idea about or had little to no expectations of.
A few are frequently observed and seen on a daily basis but not considered impressive — SSDD to many eyes; other gems begin initially as merely figments of my imagination when they were mentioned in a novel or in classical and contemporary literature — only to become a-sort-of-fiction-turned-reality type experience.
Curiosity, wanderlust, and the yearning to explore and discover. To document what is not necessarily new to the world, but new to me.
KILIMANJARO, Lemosho Trek – Tanzania
Hike up to “the Roof of Africa” for New Years Day 2016? Potential altitude sickness? Experience the local latrines on the mountain? Why not? I joined a group to tackle the Lemosho Route back in December, and you can see what it was like.
BRUCE TRAIL – Ontario, Canada
So how long does it take to hike a trail that is close to 900km long? Well, we’re still going at it and you can follow along.
kumano Kodo – Japan
One summer, I decided to visit my friend in Osaka and along the way — take a long walk on an ancient pilgrimage trail.
