Wild Cambodian Sticky Rice Recipe For many years now I’ve been a lover of sticky rice, but on a recent trip to Cambodia I experienced a new take on this delicious dessert. In the streets of a very small and remote town, a man hovered over a large fire meticulously rotating stuffed banana leaves. Our guide handed the man some coins and two very charred pouches were handed over, still steaming hot from the fire. Inside I found a perfectly crisp, golden brown lump of sticky rice. I was amazed and inspired by the taste and texture of this treat and decided I needed to find a way to make it at home. The ingredients and supplies needed for this sticky rice are as follows: 1 C Thai Glutinous Rice 1 C Canned Coconut Milk 1/3 C Organic Sugar 1 Bag Frozen Banana Leaves Toothpicks Aluminum Foil You will also need either a rice steamer...

My Favorite Spanish Pintxos Recipe Pintxos? Pinchos? Tapas? There is a difference! Pintxo is the Basque take on the Spanish word pincho. The difference between pinxtos and tapas depends on your Spain locale. First and most important - you never dine on pintxos alone. These delightful morsels are best enjoyed in crowded bars - also known as pintxo hopping - while trading stories about your day. Most people move around on a pub crawl enjoying one or two pintxos in each place. On my recent trip to Northern Spain our guide patiently explained the art of the pintxo which originated in the Basque region in the charming town of San Sebastian. Without rules and limits chefs freely create and the possibilities are endless. We dined on traditional pintxos with combinations of chorizo or bacon with manchego or blue cheese along with simple easy to assemble varieties pairing pickled vegetables and anchovies. The more elegant Michelin-style...

The Entire Trip Was Amazing Listen to this solo female traveler share her experience of hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu!   “I had always wanted to see Machu Picchu, and for this trip I wanted something adventurous and physically challenging and Wildland Adventure’s Inca Trail Trek was the best I found!   I loved the hike. The camp sites were awesome- I've never been so spoiled while hiking!     Our guide, Elkin was awesome! Very knowledgeable, professional, and made sure that we all had everything we needed.   The food on the trek was the most amazing- better than restaurant meals! I really appreciated that they made me vegetarian meals that were delicious.   The entire trip was amazing. The people, the culture, the views, the trek... everything was wonderful.”     To learn more about our Inca Trail Trek feel free to contact me.   Your friendly South America Program Director,...

Mystical, Magical, Mysterious and Awe Inspiring This couple just returned from almost a month of travel on a custom trip to Argentina and Peru.  Gary recounts some of their favorite moments while in South America.   “We had heard great feedback from my wife’s sister who went to Peru in the preceding year with Wildland. Wildland’s open approach, the low key nature of their interactions interspersed with enthusiasm at the highest level, and the feedback from more than one person were enough to ensure that we were going with "like minded" folks in selecting Wildland. It turned out to be absolutely the case.   The entire itinerary was a fantastically put together sequence that we all worked together on. Great collaboration throughout.   Our favorite memories of the trip were:  [In chronological order as they happened on the trip]: (1) Roaming around freestyle in Buenos Aires and staying at Legado Mitico while doing so. It's a...

Our Guides Were Phenomenal! After invited by her friends to join them on the Machu Picchu Mountain Lodges Trek, Marian decided to go for it! Here she shares some of the highlights of her high Andean adventure while trekking to Machu Picchu!   “The main highlights, besides Machu Picchu ,for me was the fact that the Inca ruins everywhere! Cusco was incredible and our guides were phenomenal! We couldn't have had better service and attention. We were greeted in Cusco in the middle of a transportation strike and your staff took excellent care to see that we made it to our hotels. They did an excellent job. Eddie Pisaro, our guide, and his assistant, Claudio were absolutely fantastic.   Every meal at the mountain lodges stood out! The accommodations were AMAZING, I wish I lived there! My favorites were: the JW Marriott in Cusco, all of the mountain lodges and Machu Picchu Pueblo in...
