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.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
