      We’ve done the Jordan experience. We were in Petra for 2 days, to really absorb the atmosphere and hospitality of the Bedouins. Fantastic.
      I was one day short of reaching Everest first base camp, due to an incredible early snowstorm. It was just too tiring, walking through shoulder high snow, at an altitude over 4,500 metres. I was nearly 50, I think at the time.
      Another incredible walk, we did 4 years ago, was to walk across Engand, following Hadrian’s Wall. Just so historic and beautiful. I was 64, when we did that.
      Love your blog, Gail.

    2. I’ve obviously got a lot more hiking around the world to do as I’ve only done the Grand Canyon hike but what a beauty – especially if you do the full Rim to Rim to Rim. Patagonia is in the planning stages.

      So glad you included the Queen Charlotte — it was one of my favourites in NZ and the one I’ve written the most about. The post with my favourite photos is at http://www.bootsandabackpack.com/queen-charlotte-track-5-questions-answered/ .

      There’s so many other tracks in NZ that I enjoyed as well, like the Routeburn and Milford. Can’t wait to go back and try them again now that I have a proper camera!

      It’s also funny that you’d post these today…I’m about to head off on three days’ hiking along the Rhine (provided I can carry my pack that far)!

    4. I love your travel pinspiration posts. Although it always ads destinations and exciting activities to my neverending bucket list. :D

      This week was no exception. Jonas and I did a little hiking in Grand Canyon but we really need to go back and hike more of that amazing canyon.

      Patagonia, Everest and NZ looks quite tempting to, although Sweden is nearest to us here in Denmark…

      Amazing pics!

    5. As a Tasmanian who has also done two of those treks on your list (out the back of Petra and Everest base camp) the Tasmanian hikes hold their own. The lesser known Frenchmans Cap is an amazing (albeit tough) hike.

    7. These pictures were so inspiring Guys!

      I came across a book on Amazon that’s titled 50 Places to Hike Before you Die.

      Very tempted to purchase it and make it a major component of my new blog.

      I want to add a Travel Component and think Hiking would be a great central theme.

      These pics are so motivating.

      I live in Tokyo right now and want to get out and do some local hikes.

      I’ll bring my camera’s with me and do a proper write up next time.

      Glad I found you guys on Twitter!

      Take care and safe travels Craig

    10. Here’s one that few people do: High Tatra Mountains in Slovakia. Last month my wife and I hiked from chalet to chalet for five days, wishing it could have been fifteen…
