The POD Father and I were both well traveled before we met. I spent two years living and working in Australia in my twenties whilst my husband went back-packing around SE Asia, Australia, New Zealand and Fiji around the same time. He also went on holiday to Lebanon and Syria in 2002 – sadly not a trip you could repeat today.
Our holidays together were very much a combination of adventure and activity. We enjoyed some fantastic trips close to home and as far afield as New Zealand.
South America had been on our list of must visit places for a while when we took a holiday to Venezuela. The purpose of the trip was to see Angel Falls, the highest waterfall in the world and only accessible by boat and then a hike through the jungle.
Whilst in Canaima National Park, we also walked behind the waterfall (top right) thought to be the one featured in Last of the Mohicans.
When we visited New Zealand for a friend’s wedding we took the opportunity to experience one of the World’s top day walks – The Tongariro Crossing. It did practically finish us off though.
