Things have been busy around the Our Hiking Blog household.
We have just returned from Siem Reap, Cambodia and had a great break exploring many areas, in particular some beautiful temples. It is a terrific place to visit, wonderful people, fascinating culture and excellent food. Many things about Cambodia can be very confronting. There is a lot of government corruption or inaction, poverty, poor infrastructure and the ever present undertone of westerners preying on people who are looking for a way to make some money, no matter how… That being said, we really enjoyed our time.
It is great to be back in Australia. The complicated bit has been amid all the travel planning, journey and return to Australia, Frank has managed to secure a part time role as a guide with a local adventure travel company. Yep, commencing Thursday, he is the Raw Travel Great Ocean Walk “expert”and will be guiding groups on that spectacular coastal walk here in Victoria, Australia.
This is an interesting new challenge. The trips vary in length from 3 – 7 days and are based in off track accommodation either at Apollo Bay, Cape Otway or Port Campbell. Having just done a recky for a planned new eBook on the Great Ocean Walk it will be a pleasure to share this beautiful area with visitors from across the country.
When we get a chance, more details will be shared here. For example, he has purchased a new pack, clothing and completed a level 2 First Aid course. These should be the basis for some interesting articles that are relevant to many of you.
So, a new challenge beckons and mixing his existing IT work with some outdoor adventures seems like a great way to spend a few months!
