5 Hiking trails to experience in your lifetime

Spending time outside can bring health benefits not just to the body, but even to the mind and soul. One of the best ways to get in touch with nature is through hiking. If you’re looking for your next big adventure, check out some of the trails that you would not want to miss below.


1. Everest Base Camp Trek in Nepal – the highest point on planet Earth is practically on every hiker’s bucket list. There’s no denying the breathtaking scenery that you will encounter, and the fact that you will be on the highest place on earth will make it a glorious experience. But aside from that, you also get to experience the culture of the locals by visiting places such as the village of Namche Bazaar or the Buddhist monastery at Pangboche.


2. Tour Du  Mont Blanc – if you’re looking for an adventure that will be you to three countries, then circle the Mont Blanc. It can take as fast as 3 days, but if you want the full experience, it will take 7 to 10 days. This adventure of a lifetime will bring you to France, Italy, and Switzerland. Prepare yourself to see the dramatic glaciers of the Swiss Alps and of course the Mont Blanc. If you’re not in a hurry, take the time to enjoy the villages you will be passing through. Get to know the locals and don’t forget to enjoy the delicacies each place has to offer.


3. Te Araroa Trail in New Zealand – the country has some of the most diverse landscapes on earth. When you go on the TE Araroa Trail, you will not only get a glimpse of an active volcano but even a forest that looks like it belongs in another world. Get to know the culture of the Maori as you go through the river valleys. Book your tour around October through April which is the peak season for traveling there.


4. Overland Track in Tasmania – if you’re looking for a place that will offer not only the beautiful landscape but wildlife as well, the Overland Track is Australia is perfect. This place offers everything you could ask for in a hike. You’ll not only experience solitude but a variety of landscapes, from a rainforest, alpine lakes and mountains. You’ll also get the chance to see animals like the Tasmanian devil, the platypus, and the wombat. Allot around six days for this kind of adventure that can take you around Australia’s deepest lake, Lake St. Clair.


5. Inca Trail in Peru  - if you want a trail that will take you to one of the most beautiful sceneries in the world, choose to go on the Inca Trail. The hike will go through 26 miles of mountain scenery, ruins, a jungle and of course at the very end, you will get to behold one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, the Machu Picchu. The best time to go travel to the Inca trail and other Machu Picchu treks would be from May to September.

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
