Single Adventure Travel Tours – Triathlon Training In Mexico

Single Adventure Travel Tours – Growing-up in Upstate New York and not moving out to Arizona until the age of twenty-seven, I have come to realize just how diverse the Sonoran Desert really is. Living in Nogales, AZ, which borders Nogales, Sonora Mexico, I have come to realize that Mexico and Southern Arizona have both gotten an amazingly bad reputation.

Granted, Mexico has it’s issues, but to ignore the vast opportunities that this country offers to the multi-sport athlete would be an error. I am specifically speaking of a little fishing village about 5 hours south of Nogales, Arizona. San Carlos, Sonora, Mexico is a sport enthusiasts paradise.

I discovered this gem in the rough quite by accident and even before I even became interested in multi-sports. Working on the border for several years I finally got up enough courage to take the plunge and start exploring the vastness of Mexico. Sixteen years later and I have learned the language, traveled the entire Western Mexican Coast, and married a senorita from down there. The cultural experiences, adventures, and friendly people make this place too good to be scared away by the constant media barrage of reports of violence.

San Carlos offers year-round training. It is wise to avoid San Carlos in August and September if you are not an early morning riser but for those of you who want to train straight through the winter months with no worries about venues to swim, bike and run then San Carlos is your place.

The center of the village has a 20 kilometers road that loops around the village. Kilometers are marked by giant cement pillars which have the kilometer forged in giant metal numbers attached to each pillar so you always know how far you have gone even if your GPS …

I really enjoy the adventure of white water rafting and have previously been down the Snake River in the Teton’s National Park, Wyoming, as well as the Merced River in Yosemite National Park, California. I had heard about white water rafting trips down the Upper Salt River here in Arizona, however, I had never done it before because the season for running the Upper Salt is very unpredictable as well as very short. To time it just right when the perennial run off and water flow is at its optimum and peak, ideally you’re looking at about early-mid March. However, this is dependent on how much snow is received up in the mountains each winter. The season for running the Upper Salt they say actually extends from as early as February until mid May. …

Overseas Adventure Travel Vietnam Cambodia – Exploring Sapa – Vietnam’s Northern Mountains

Overseas Adventure Travel Vietnam Cambodia – The night is cool and crisp and we are boarding our train from Hanoi, Vietnam to the northern mountain town of Sapa. Our train is a modern overnight sleeper; clean, comfortable, and sparkling white. The rest of the station is like stepping back in time. Ancient boxcars darkened by time, are parked in the yard, and steam is rising in the air. People donning conical hats are huddled around open fires. Some squat on small plastic stools eating noodle soup with chopsticks. As I look out the window I feel as though it is 1969.

We are led to our bunks by a petite and quiet women from ODC Travel. The company based in Hanoi where we booked our four-day, three-night excursion. For $75 each, all meals accommodation and transportation are included in our trip to see the magnificent rice terraces and to experience the traditional lives of the hill tribes of Sapa.

We have arrived in Lao Cao, a small town on the Chinese border. As I step onto the platform a brisk, cold wind awakens my senses. Luckily, a van is waiting to take us the rest of the way, so we don’t have to wait in the morning chill for long.  It is a harrowing journey up the winding mountain road. We put our lives in the hands of our speeding driver who dodges herds of water buffalo, oncoming traffic and local villagers herding their oxen. Whizzing around each corner, we are thankful to not have plunged off of a …

Best Adventure Travel Camera 20 Must Remember’s – A Masterlist For ‘Off-Piste’ Photography Shoots

Best Adventure Travel Camera – Spending time in the field is a somewhat beautiful thing – you, your camera, nature and time – time to look, see, think, breathe. I shoot horses, but this list applies to anyone who is going ‘off-piste’ and heading for a photographic adventure.

The list is a starting point and can be honed according to your destination and type of shoot. So perhaps use my list as a starting point and build your own personalised list from it. You many need to tweak it each time you head off, but it will really help you to never forget those little essentials.

Here goes…

-Camera body

-Battery charger

-Spare batteries (2/3) – and AA batteries for flash if necessary

-Lenses (checked, cleaned and ready to go)

-Off-camera flash

-Memory – 2 x 4GB, 4 x 1GB cards

-Laptop/power lead

-External hard drive (Firewire 800)

-Blank DVDs for additional backup

-Card reader

-Camera/flash manuals

-Tripod

-Travel adaptors

-Lens cleaning kit plus soft cloth for wiping down

-Camera waterproof protector

-Polarising filter

-Waterproof trousers/jacket (especially great if you want to roll around in a field)

-Chewing gum or sweets (time disappears when out in the field – be prepared to get peckish SUDDENLY!)

-Fingerless gloves and a warm hat

-Email to insurers advising of trip (if necessary)

-Change voicemail message (you don’t want to miss out on any jobs whilst away)

-“Out of office” assistant on email (if away from internet for an extended period of time)

Constantly review the list and never rely on your in-built autopilot function to pack. There will always be something.

Also, never underestimate how cold you will become if you are outdoors for any length of time. Gloves, hats, scarves, layers.

I hope this is of use – happy shooting.…
