Trekking Diaries

Here you will find the diaries of our trekking/hiking holidays. Currently you can see diaries of (among other trips): "around the Annapurna" in Nepal, the Val d'Aran in Spain, the Cordillera Huayhuash in Peru and the Kenya & Tanzania holiday which included the summit of Mount Kenya and the Kilimanjaro and some safaris, Ladakh - Little Tibet, Patagonia, the Mera Peak expedition, Jordan, our trip to some of the National Parks near the west coast of the U.S.A. and my trip to Everest Base Camp.

In 2008, I raised money for VSO (more about that here). Many people that also started to raise funds have asked me what I did to raise money. So I finally decided to create a page with fundraising tips.




This is one of our hobbies. There are many tools available on the web to help you solve mysteries, but occasionally I run into a puzzle/task for which I can't find a tool. Recently I have built my first tool and in case there will be more, here's a page with my own geocaching tool(s).
