Tajikistan
We spent two weeks in Tajikistan and loved every minute of it. So much beauty.

How lucky you seem to be to take a jaunt in Tajikistan on a whim or a dream. For Denise and I when we joined Travel Camel and the Binkleys for our roadtrip into the High Pamir, it was not easy getting there from Oz...but so so worth it. This pic captures the coloured palette of incredible views that is await you there. I have heard the Fan Mountains are sensational and your pic gives just a taste. Understandable that you could not doze as you'd miss so much of the spectacular. Love the roads cut into the sides of mountains in your pic. I'll post it in our 'Follow that road' thread in the Photography Forum. For those that venture there those roads lead to Heaven in my book! Hope you have further hikes there.

Pamir!
Thank you so much! I would love to travel the Pamir Highway - it's still on my list. I would definitely return to Tajikistan for that.

London
London is one of the world's great cities and I'm always eager to go back. I will take Bridgett's Bakery Tour next time we are there. It sounds perfect.

Thanks for the memories...
we lived in Brussels from 1984 to 1995. I would love a Belgian waffle and a box of chocolates about now...

This could prove to be an interesting trip.

Disney
I should have mentioned that I think Disney would turn in his grave if he knew what an outrageously expensive place his kingdom had become. He wanted joy for families... he would not support the cost.

Disney's dream
Yeah, I agree. I don't mind paying money for quality (for visitors and staff) and experience, but the blatant money grubbing is really disgusting. It's still a nice place to visit, but I have been going my whole life, probably 30 times, and it is clear each and every time I go that it is all and only about money.

Family Time
Sorry your trip was delayed but looks like the smaller group of 4 had a lovely time in the land of Disney.

The last time our family was at Disney World was 2005.
My nephew works for them. He is getting married on 3 December so we thought we might go again. Another nephew was the chief structural engineer on the Star Wars ride, another reason to check it out. But you are not the only one from whom I have heard bad reports about the park. So we may just skip it. Although the weather won't be bad, the high prices are ridiculous! I also hate flying in the States!

Fabulous
Hi Alexis - How truly fantastic you must be 'over the moon' with your achievement - I remember the terrible feeling of altitude sickness when we visited Colca Canyon to see the Condors - no way near the height you have encountered so you have done extremely well to get nearly the whole way without feeling unwell. Loved all your photos and oh my what a super memory you have made. Best wishes Sheila

Thanks!!!
Thanks so much everyone for the compliments and congrats. It does feel great and is one of my favorite adventure ever. I actually think I would totally do it again, maybe another route with more time... Or maybe the Annapurna circuit. Too many choices!

Made it!

Everest
What an accomplishment! Fantastic.

Congratulations!!!
Altitude sickness can be a killer at any age. It took us a couple of months to adapt to the altitude where we now live in the Rocky Mountains...8400 ft.
