About this blog

Welcome to the travel blog of the Mountain Nomad!

2008 - The Journey begins!

I'll start in Kenya & Tanzania in January, climb Kilimanjaro and go on Safari, then onto India, Kashmir and Nepal where I'll do some trekking in the Everest Region. Overland through Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam. Then onto Hong Kong and Macau. A short stay in Seoul then a flight to Singapore which I'll use as a base to visit Borneo, Brunei, Malaysia and Indonesia. Three months in Australia and New Zealand (The big hobo road trip!!!), then over the pacific via Fiji to LA where I fly back to the UK in December 2008 in time for Christmas. After my short stay at home, phase 2 in South America will commence in 2009 (If I last that long?).

2009 - An American odyssey, more adventures on another continent!

I'll take no flights within south America this year, just overland forms of transport allowed. I suspect many hours will be spent on crappy buses and boats over the next 6 months. In January I'll climb Aconcagua in Argentina, the highest mountain outside the Himalayas! Then to Uruguay, into Brazil for carnival in Salvador, upstream by boat on the Amazon to it's source in Peru, then Bolivia and finally I'll return to Argentina to fly back to Europe in the summer. I'll spent a couple of months at home seeing family and friends across Europe. I fly to San Francisco in August to begin another massive road trip across the States. More hobo travelling, sleeping in my car and washing in rivers just like my Australian and New Zealand adventure! I plan to drive through all the lower 48 states and do a bit of a national park tour but my first stop will be the Black Rock desert for Burning Man. I'll finish 2009 by spending the winter in western Canada.

2010 - America (Again!) & the holy-lands of the Middle East

The New Year was spent in Egypt following in the footsteps of the Pharoahs. Then my 2nd US trip will start in similar fashion with Burning Man. Followed by another coast to coast road trip to visit the places I didn't see last year and to re-visit the places I loved.

Then to the Middle East and beyond to explore the holylands and the cradle of civilazation. Cyprus, Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Northern Iraq, Turkey and the Caspian Sea countries. Then I'll return back to the UK overland from Turkey (TBC).
