The Ultimate Women's Packing Guide for Southeast Asia Adventures

The Ultimate Women's Packing Guide for Southeast Asia Adventures
Southeast Asia is filled with breathtaking views, ancient temples and some of the friendliest people in the world. There are many great Southeast Asia adventures to be had in this culturally diverse area, so to maximize your enjoyment of these activities I’ve prepared a comprehensive packing list to help you prepare for this amazing experience.Travel skirts are a great way to stay comfortable and keep cool in the heat of the day; however, you need to be cautious with the length as many temples and other sites will not permit you to enter if your skirt is too short. Exofficio’s Go-To Stripe Skirt is quick drying, moisture wicking and even includes a hidden zippered pocket for your cash. This skirt is also modest in length, allowing you to wear it anywhere. I pair my skirt with the Techspressa Support Tank, which is also quick drying and has a built-in bra making...

Answering The Call of the Wild and Comfort in Zambia

Answering The Call of the Wild and Comfort in Zambia
This week our Wild Zambia Safari was featured in the New York Times as one of "10 African Adventures Answering the Call of the Wild and Comfort." Here's what the New York Times had to say: "For travelers seeking a more active safari than most drive-focused itineraries, Wildland Adventures has introduced a 10-day Wild Zambia Safari that includes long hikes and passage by canoe as well as four-wheel drive safari vehicles in visits to South Luangwa and Lower Zambezi National Parks. Trips start at Victoria Falls and are largely divided between two remote but comfortable wilderness camps. Travelers will walk the five miles between them (with luggage shuttled forward), tracking buffalo, giraffe and elephant en route. The adventurous can add an optional night of camping under the stars in South Luangwa to the itinerary."Our Wild Zambia Safari is truly a one-of-a-kind adventure. Wildland founders, Kurt and Anne Kutay, scouted this trip last spring.We're...

Breathtaking and Idyllic- The Machu Picchu Lodges Trek was Amazing!
Kim and a group of 11 friends just returned from their adventures in Peru and had a fabulous time on our Machu Picchu Mountain Lodges Trek. Here are some of her favorite memories:“The Machu Picchu Mountain Lodges Trek along the Salkantay Trail was amazing! Loved the diversity of the terrain along the way. The food and accommodations were outstanding. Liked the privacy and relative luxury of the lodges. The guides, staff, cook, etc. were all so professional and attentive to our every need.Wilfredo was a wonderful tour guide--so knowledgeable, attentive and focused on making the most of the trip for all of us. Danny was a lot of fun.Something that really stood out was the lunch in the tent (in the rain) after reaching the top of the Salkantay Trail--what a fun and much appreciated surprise. Loved Santos and Victor who did the traditional blessing at the lake. My favorite night was the...

Enchanted by Adventure in the Brazilian Amazon

Enchanted by Adventure in the Brazilian Amazon
Falling asleep to claps of thunder and waking up to howler monkeys calling in the canopy outside my window this August were just fragments of the beautiful dream I stepped into while spending almost 3 weeks in the Brazilian Amazon. Each morning, as the sun slowly reared its mighty head over the lush horizon, I woke up to run along miles of trails that wound in and out of the exotic jungle. Running before the intense heat of midday meant comingling with families of squirrel monkeys, dodging sleepy caimans and watching majestic white herons take flight. During the day we ascended ropes into the dense canopy to gain a new perspective from the tops of ancient Samauma trees and swam with powerful pink river dolphins. We paddled in the quiet off shooting rivers and lakes as the sun started to set and watched as the Milky Way painted the sky. The...

Beyond the Galapagos - Experience Raja Ampat and The Coral Triangle
The sun rises and sets at 6:30am and 6:30pm every day along the equator all year, every year where two stunning archipelagos of unique life and great marine biodiversity tempt adventure seekers to experience their natural wonders. Every sunrise and sunset is an inspiring and life-affirming sight to behold even if it only flirts with our senses for a fleeting moment at the center of the planet.On opposite sides of the globe sit the Galapagos, that Darwinian ecological mecca of rugged volcanic terrain and highly adapted animal life, and it’s lesser known sister nation in Natural Selection, Raja Ampat, Indonesia. Raja Ampat sits at the heart of The Coral Triangle and is home to the most diverse, exceptional and plentiful underwater species of coral and marine life in the world. So stunning, it has been dubbed “Heaven on Earth” for its paradisiacal beauty.“Bucket” lists and “Top-Islands-to-Visit” lists and “Best-Adventure-Ever” lists abound...
