5 Things You Can't Leave Home Without

Here at Wildland we don't just love travel: we live, eat, breathe, talk, walk and dream adventure travel ! Knowing that, our Wild staff wanted to share 5 things they can't leave home without. Wildland's Top 5 Things You Can't Leave Home Without 1. Journal- Record all of your favorite memories, it makes it a lot easier to share them when you get home. 2.

5 Things a Mom Can't Leave Home Without

  As a traveling mom with two little adventurers, I always need to be prepared for almost anything and everything we encounter during  family travel . It is most definitely more work traveling with the family, but there's no greater pleasure than sharing somewhere amazing with the people I love most.   So mamas, here's 5 things you should think about bringing when traveling with the family. Essentials for traveling moms 1. A new bedtime story for the kids - We've read quite a few in the Magic Treehouse series and with nearly 50 books in the collection I can usually find something that’s topical for the trip. I also read some topical non-fiction with the kids before we go. 2. Wipes-  For the plane, for the car, for whatever my son has smeared on his face. 3. A cheap digital camera - So the kids can take their own pictures. We make...

Sailing the Nubian Sands

Sudan Travel Expedition March 2012   Guest Review: Alice Byers c ustom trip to Sudan   My friend Taddy and I were seeking another trip. We had loved travelling together last year in Ethiopia , just the two of us with a guide and some drivers on an itinerary arranged by my stalwart tour operator Wildland Adventures . It’s not easy for Taddy and I to find a trip that accommodates both of us! She has travelled in twice as many countries as I have, and we don’t entirely share areas of future interest. But last fall Taddy had identified a possible archaeological trip to Sudan that was to be led by two experts. It was to be very expensive and to accommodate a group as large as 17. We did not like that idea very much, but we liked the idea of traveling up and down the Nile River viewing...

10 Must Read Travel Books

  Most travelers relish a good read as enthusiastically as they book their next plane ticket, for when the body is forced to stay put, a book at least allows the mind to wander limitlessly. Our Wild staff members are no exception and when we aren’t traveling, creating a new trip or writing and talking about adventure travel, we’re reading about our destinations in the form of guide books, novels, conservation journals, poli-sci essays – you name it! Here are some of our must-reads, organized by region, for your next global adventure with Wildland!  India & Asia  1.  Hullabaloo in the Guava Orchard by Kirin Desai For a change of pace in Indian literature, which can often be depressing, I recommend this book. This is a humorous look at the eccentricities of India’s Hindu pilgrimage culture with a touch of family relationships and peek into village life. Add in excellent writing...

Going Wild!

  Hello fellow adventurers, My name is  Jonathan Burnham  and I am the newest member of the Wildand team. I will be the Marketing Manager here and I am ecstatic about going  Wild . Trust me when I say you are going to see plenty of blogs from me  covering  everything from my travels with Wildland to news about what's going on in the adventure travel world. I figured since I'm the new kid on the blog I'd give you a little background about myself. I was born and raised in Southern California. Family travel was real important growing up and my Dad took me to visit National and State Parks all over the country, giving me the opportunity to learn about the diversity of natural habitats and their importance firsthand. I can say from experience that getting the opportunity to actually see how icebergs are made by calving glaciers in ...
