From London, Great Britain

In 2000 I was a London City Exective - and then I went on a holiday that changed my life. I visited some friends who were backpacking around SEA, and by coincidence the first place I stopped was Cambodia. The country capitivated me - in particular the warmth and sincerity of the local people, still recovering from the genocidal Khmer Rouge.I decided to take a year out, and returned to Cambodia where I became involved in voluntary work. ...

Heathrow Airport, England

Experienced By: lamundsen

The Champagne wine countryside is very beautiful and would lend itself well to cycle touring/wine tastings. Again for another year as our time was pressing. From there we headed north traversing a number of WW1 battlefields, as timing would have it just as the red poppies are in full colour .

Experienced By: d_weisk

Skiing Japan!(For more pictures and blogs of the rest of Japan, see previous blogs). Well another ski season has come and past and with that many great memories.
