Live railway lines, rivers, farms, views and a steep incline. The two-hour hike to Ella Rock has it all and is an extremely rewarding hike when in Sri Lanka.
Sri Lanka is blessed with some fantastic medium difficulty hikes and there is no more unique hike than the one to Ella Rock!.... To get to Ella you would have most likely taken the scenic train route leaning out of the carriages to get that perfect picture for the gram, believe me when I say that I was really looking forward to this journey from Hapitale however the experience was a little lost on me due to the number of selfie sticks and tourist poses throughout the journey. It was not a journey that I could sit back and enjoy the fantastic views. That being said Ella was a perfect stop for a couple of nights and no more so than experiencing the Ella Rock Hike
You know those days when you are really bogged down at work and just want to get away from it all?
Well that happened to me in late September when I took a spontaneous decision to have a weekend away in Sardinia... Google told me Calgary was one of the cheapest places to fly to that weekend and Airbnb told me that I could get a secluded little apartment with sea views away from all the crowds. The only thing missing was a little hiking route to clear my head from all the life stress back home.
Monte Cresia is a scenic 1 hour drive from Calgary and is a great break away from the beach when in south Sardinia
When the boys and the dog decide to go for a stroll.
Peak District National Park is an underrated gem and somewhere I just had to visit . We created our own little route along Pennine Way leading us to Edale with the guidance of Poppy, our WorldHikingVlog guest hiker for the day.
Wow this is a leg burner! I guess there is no better way to start a hike that to be 15 minutes in before a dramatic incline up Jabobs Ladder (we learnt the hard way why they call it a ladder!) .. Jacobs ladder really is the best way to start Pennine Way.
If you are driving through Page in Arizona then Horseshoe Bend is somewhere that you have to take an hour out of your day to view... Here are my top 6 tips for visiting Horseshoe Bend.
When I got back to my car I was looking for something to do to fill the time until my tour around Antelope Canyon and en-route to the Glen Canyon Dam I stumbled across this little gem of a hike 'The Hanging Garden Trail'
Kew Gardens opens at 10 AM and I would advise arriving around this time to beat the queues that will no doubt be there a little later in the day.
From Clapham Junction we went to station number 5 and got on the train to Kew Bridge. Once at Kew Bridge, cross the road and then the bridge and then turn right walking alongside the cricket pitch which will lead you to the entrance of Kew Gardens.
This is hands-down one of the prettiest London day hikes I’ve organised. Quaint Tudor villages, historic churches, forests and castles combine with a gentle ambling pace that offers a slice of quintessential English countryside.
Direct trains from London Victoria will take you to the village of Chilham. Exit the station and head east, following signs for Chilham Castle.
Little has changed over the past few centuries in Chilham (minus the fancy SUVs), and it is easy to feel as if you have stepped back in time when wandering around its narrow lanes and wonky rows of Tudor buildings.
