Trip Suggestions

Postby firemom » Thu Jul 13, 2017 11:11 am

ey everyone... I know this will probably open a can of worms (everyone has their own opinion) but I would like some suggestions on where I should go on my next adventure. Here are some background tidbits of info....
1. I am a 44 year old female from Canada
2. I love the outdoors and being active
3. Have previously done Everest Base camp and Mont Blanc trek, both of which I fully enjoyed!!
4. My 16 year old daughter will be graduating high school next june (2018) and she wants to come with me (she always wants to go). SHe is very athletic and adventurous!!

Please give me some suggestions as to where and what time of year is a good time to go based on your own personal experience...
I am having a hard time pinning down where we should go!!! I am looking at Annapurna Circuit, but am open to anywhere!!!

Thanks
Toni
Everest Base Camp April 2016
Mont Blanc June 2017
What's next??????

I did the New Zealand Best of the North Island last year (https://www.gadventures.com/trips/new-z ... land/3385/) and loved it! It is however a Yolo trip, which means it has an age limit, but there are quite a few other New Zealand trips which you could try such as the New Zealand North Island Multi Sport (https://www.gadventures.com/trips/new-z ... port/ONNA/)

Go to Indonesia, there is an amazing range of things to see from the fabulous culture and temples of Bali, to live volcanoes and and ancient historic sites in Java.

We took our daughter on the Inca Trail hike when she graduated from university. It was a challenging hike, and lots of time along the way to enjoy each other's company!

Umm, it does get hot here in Canada too...but at least our igloos have built-in air conditioning :roll: The sled dogs and moose might find it a bit 'shocking', but the rest of us Canucks can handle the heat just fine :P

Thailand and Cambodia are good choice. Phuket is an very exciting island where it has so many outdoor activities, such as Bungee. In Cambodia, there are so many interests like temple, mountain.
But if want to stay for a a bit more time, China is the best choice. But pay attention, don't have your meal in the tourist it's truly much more expensive than the place around.

Don't forget to take your power adapter if you come to Asia countries.
