Wild sea kayaking adventure in Sweden

On the third leg of his Scandi trip, Kevin Rushby and son kayak the fjords of a huge archipelago, camp on magical islands – and meet not a single other person• Scandi tour: part 2, part 1We round the headland and see the island for the first time: a distant ridge of bare granite with a lighthouse on one end. At the same time we hit the swell and the wind sizzles spray off the wave tops, whipping it into our faces as we drive the kayaks forward. For a moment I wonder if this island might be a little far out for us, too far from the safe inner channels that we have been following for two days now.Back at our starting point in a kayaking centre on the island of Tjörn, the owner, Patrik, had been very clear about our options, pointing out various camping spots on the 8,000...

My Himalayan journey – trekking to Shangri-La

A group walking holiday in the Indian Himalayas provides a rare chance to enjoy true solitude high above the cloudsAt the top of the Miyar Valley in the high Himalayas, a chain of seven tiny turquoise pools nestle below the snout of a formidable glacier. Each one looks deceptively inviting. We plunge in and our shouts, as we brave the icy water, echo off walls of rock into empty air; there is no one but our group around to hear. For miles in every direction there are only mountains; their white peaks, sheer slopes and pockets of high hidden valleys are filled with wild flowers for just a few months of the year, mainly June and July, when their cape of snow melts away.

Wild west Wales: beaches, birds and a brew

The coastline of Pembrokeshire’s Marloes peninsula is glorious and uncrowded, the wildlife on nearby Skomer island is superb, and a new cafe on the way to both is the icing on the cake At Musselwick beach, the yellow sand, hemmed in by black slate cliffs, is an idyllic picnic spot, as we discovered after persuading our two scowling boys to walk the 20 minutes from Marloes village. They duly built acomplicated sand fort just in time for the tide to roll in and destroy it – the beach is only accessible for four hours a day, two either side of low tide.As we puffed back up the steps, we passed a dreadlocked fisherman in black neoprene, clutching a harpoon, with a serious-looking knife strapped to his thigh. He was in search of sea bass. Continue reading...Original link

Summer on the lake: ‘It’s as Canadian as ice hockey’

In Canada, the summer ritual of decamping to the lakeside is passed down through generations – especially in Ontario ‘cottage country’, where our writer’s great-grandmother built a hideaway in the 1890sIt’s 9pm on a sweltering summer Friday. There’s neither a soul nor a breath of breeze on Lake Muskoka, 120 miles north-west of Toronto. On a long wooden dock, we load our scruffy 1966 Cutter, one of the first fibreglass runabouts on the lake. Ripples from the shifting weight erase its perfect reflection on these otherwise glassy waters. This is the final leg of our weekly 2½-hour pilgrimage from the city: we put in the groceries, then the overnight bags, and finally Belly the basset hound, who often misjudges the leap between the dock and the boat gunnels. Against a purple, orange and cyan sky, I take the helm and turn the key to fire up the old outboard. Then we...

A Day in Cuttack !

DSC_1289                                              Odisha, this east Indian state is one that I’ve been too quite a few times now both for business and leisure and while Bhubaneswar , the capital city is where I usually head too, the focus today is on the former capital of the state – Cuttack!  Cuttack and Bhubaneswar are often referred to as the twin cities and with less than 30 km separating the two its apt that they are called twins ! Here are a few places and eateries that I explored in a day in Cuttack !  Cuttack Chandi Temple Ask anyone what to see in Cuttack and this temple will be the first you’ll hear ! The temple is of the presiding deity of Cuttack – Goddess Chandi and hence the name. It’s a...
