Magical journey!
Staying in a Bedouin camp in the vast, red desert, visiting the fabled St. Catherine's and hiking up and meeting a seeker on Mt Sinai--it doesn't get much better than that. I used to focus on my inner journey during my travels but had lost sight of that recently. Your words, "we all travel to try and make sense of our world and of our place within it," remind me to take the time to look within--thank you!

Magical Journey!
Hi Tara, thanks for your comment and so glad you liked the article. Trips like this one are often a reminder that sometimes... maybe we're missing the point. An easy place to feel like that though, I think it would be difficult to be somewhere like Sinai and not feel touched by the experience of being there.

Great read
Fascinating, as always. You were lucky to meet a hermit up there, just for that added dimension. Hmm wonder if I will ever get there...

Sinai
Your blog describes the heartbeat in the heart of the Sinai. We're eager to follow in your footsteps. Love the rich golden colors. It makes you wonder if the boarder guards practice this show of studying the passports. I'm sure they do that time and time again all day. Loved the camel train. What great adventures. We are eager to read more.

Sinai
Thanks guys and yes, it was an amazing adventure. I love deserts anyway; the light, the intensity of the colours but in that part of Sinai there's that added dimension... the feeling that you're in a very special place... there can't be anywhere else like it.

FANTASTIC
Thanks Dave... in terms of size, it doesn't really compare to anything in Tassie but even so - it's not a bad place to have on your doorstep.

Malls
I'm not much of a shopper myself but that's more because in my country, "malling" has been a national pastime! For the same reason.... Escape from hot afternoons. I will certainly develop migraines when out battling the heat. The only time I'm out there is when I'm in the beach. So yes, i perfectly understand your confession!

Malls
Thanks Liliram, They're a mixed blessing aren't they? Penang is such a marvellous place, I absolutely love it and with so much to see, do and explore... I felt rather guilty about hanging out in the malls at all. But it so was hot... and they were so deliciously cool: we just sold out! Thank you for dropping by and for the absolution as well - much appreciated.

Tor-rific!
Hi Laurie, enjoying your blog. You know I love Poldark country! It looks so mysterious and atmospheric. Your photos are outstanding. Good to see you are still hitting the road!

Tor-rific!
Thanks Haze, really lovely to hear from you and glad you're enjoying the blogs. Had forgotten what an Anglophile you were. You always did have a penchant for dark moorland Inns with stuffed deer heads mounted above the fireplace, didn't you? Hope to be in touch soon - Laurie

Stowes Hill Sunrise

Great panoramas!
Wow, how lucky to live near such a gorgeous, unpopulated spot so full of history, mystery, majesty, trails and wortle berries! Very impressive landscape with its tors, standing stones, bleak moors and mossy valleys. How lovely to watch it all change with the season. Nice link, too--thanks.

Great Panoramas
Thanks for that Tara and yeah we do consider ourselves very lucky to live here. We love travelling abroad and visiting 'far away' places but no matter where else we go in the world, it will never be a trial to come back home.

The View from Agios Georgios

Great blogs!
In this and your Turkish blog, I love the combination of fabulous photos, excellent historical information and hiking exploration. I was in the Greek Isles one year off season and had wonderful ruins all to myself. I can hardly wait to see where you'll go this year!

Cyprus
A holiday in Cyprus sounds perfect and you enjoyed the oldies. I do wish you'd gotten up to sing for them. Your blog is a lovely balance of historical information, story telling and your impressions of the area. We will be following along on your adventures.

Dave & Merry
Thanks for your kind comments guys and yeah, Cyprus is an interesting place.. As for me singing karaoke; well, I'm always up for a laugh but you haven't heard my singing voice. Dogs usually start howling and babies cry when I strike up a chord. May be best I leave that one for the 'oldies' in Paphos.

Thank You Kali...
Great to hear from you and so glad you liked the article - particularly as it was intended as a tribute to all the hard work you and the other members of HCT have put in over the years. Thanks too for the update on what's happening. I was especially delighted to hear Obla's news, sounds like she has fallen on her feet! Keep up the good work. Love and best wishes to all. Laurie & Viv
