Welcome to the Elephit House Richard Pendavingh 14.04.20

I knew it was going to be bad. I'd read all the one and two star reviews and looked at the pictures of weird murals and overgrown gardens but I kept circling back to the listing every time I looked for accommodation on Kauai.

The Hordes of Mt Doom Richard Pendavingh 28.12.16

The Tongariro Alpine Crossing on New Zealand's north island has a reputation as one of the most dangerous hikes in the country. On a good day it's a hard slog across 20km of rock and scree taking you up onto the desolate but spectacular plateau that forms the base of Mt Ngauruhoe.

The Devil’s Staircase Richard Pendavingh 18.10.16

Despite the spectacular views on offer around Mt Howitt it's clear from the map that early European explorers had a rough time surveying the region.

Unfinished Business Richard Pendavingh 20.09.16

Our first day on the bikes took us up the west coast from Negombo to Puttallam. It was a busy stretch of road and we were still a few days away from getting comfortable with the traffic so progress was slow.

It's hard to know when to visit Sri Lanka. December to April is officially the dry season but the weather conditions are somewhat complex with various monsoon seasons affecting different parts of the island at different times.

Adrift on Mt Myōkō Richard Pendavingh 25.02.15

Earlier this year I tagged along with the Australian/International off-pissed ski team to the slopes of Myokokogen.  Matt chose Myoko because the guidebook gave it four and half snowflakes out of five in the 'powder' category.  Also because our plan called for us to go from there to Kyoto and then onto Tokyo and we wanted to make sure our itinerary doubled as a tongue twister.
