Ormiston Gorge Trekking

Trekking with the T-Team—Ormiston Gorge

135km east of Alice Springs, nestled in the Central Australian MacDonnell Ranges is a scenic treasure, Ormiston gorge.
Again, thank you Mohamad Al Karbi for the opportunity to share this T-Team adventure as they explore Ormiston Gorge and then camp on the other side in the Pound.

Trekking With the T-Team

CHALLENGE—MT. CONNER

On the way to Uluru, a mesa rises from the plains—Mount Conner. Mysterious, and seemingly inaccessible, yet the manager of Curtain Springs Station granted the T-Team permission to explore this rise above the terrain.

I noticed on our trip to Central Australia in 2013, Mount Conner tours were available.

Again, many thanks to Mahamad Al Karbi for offering the opportunity to share my outback Aussie adventures on his site.

Tunisia – a far away land.

Ladies and gentlemen,

it is an honor to be read by you this fine day. A big “thank you” goes to the owner of this site – Mohamad, who was gracious enough to invite me to write a guest post. My blog mainly consists of news related opinion pieces and creative writing, so I thought this post would be a nice change of scenery. Without further ado, I invite you to take a journey with me to Tunisia, a country which I visited over a decade ago, but still remember fondly.

Glen Helen, Northern Territory

Friday, July 12

Central Australia had changed since I last trekked it in 1981. The landscape seemed greener, lusher, compared to 32 years ago. Good rains and buffel grass had made it so.
But, some things never change.

Mr K paced the gravel Strehlow Centre (art gallery and museum) car park. ‘I don’t want to be setting up camp in the dark,’ he muttered. ‘They’re late; we’ll have to go without them.’

A Year in the Forest of Dean

A secret gem, sitting in South West England, nestles in hills between the southern mountains of Wales and the wide River Severn. The Forest of Dean is a location many around the world may recognise, since it’s been a location used in several popular movies, including Star Wars and the Harry Potter franchise.

You’ll find it easily on Google Maps.

My wife and I moved here around 3 years ago, when we fell in love with the place during our search for a new home in which to spend our retirement. The following pictures depict a small portion of the forest through a year. All were taken within a mile radius of our house.

Espanya: A Fusion of Everything!

For three years in a row, I could not miss a summer without visiting beautiful Spain <3. Espanya, as called by the Catalan, has a special place in my heart. While I believe that people should not be the same to get along, such differences could be problematic when friends of different tastes travel together. This may not be an issue if Spain was the destination. Spain has a lot to offer to everyone who is interested in history, culture, sports, nature, or nightlife. Oh and I will not forget the great food and the great people.
