"If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine. It's lethal",
by Paulo Coelho.
We love to trek and to climb mountains, and we look for trekking opportunities everywhere.
The treks that we chronicle are typically genuine expeditions with an objective at the core – to cover distance during an amazing hike or summit a peak.
We love to encounter the world and get a step closer to nature, and trekking gives us the opportunity and time to see and understand the reality.
Since progress is slow when we're trekking it brings us down to earth.
We feel the earth beneath us, hear the sounds, smell the scents, and digest impressions as we go along. In many ways trekking is therefore also an inner journey, a meeting with oneself in exotic climes and sometimes in extremely rough conditions.
This said, we tend to look for areas which have an interesting geographical location. This means that if a mere glance at the map arouses our wanderlust, there is a good chance that we've hit the spot.
