Travel project winter 2022/2023.

 

A long awaited travel project is now scheduled for the end of this year. First destination will be Egypt, where I will take in all the major ancient historical sites, including many pyramids, Abu Simbel, sites along the Nile river and museums in Cairo. Having had my share of pharaohs and their monuments, Oman will follow. There I shall continue to have a  fast moving itinerary, designed to take in the most of the sites I would like to see, and I should be able to get some diving at the end of the Oman part of this project. From there I shall go to the UAE and Dubai for a week or so, basically seeing what its all about. Some more adrenaline pumping activities could take place, as well as diving. That's the first part of my project.


The second part of this travel project will shift to Colombia in South America, one of my favourite travel destinations! At the moment I'm arranging a climb on the volcano Nevado del Huila, 5,364 metres, the highest in Colombia and not often climbed. It would start and end in the city of Cali, Valle del Cauca. A visit to Colombia's great plains Los Llanos is also in the planning stages. Los Llanos is teeming with wildlife and harbors more than 100 species of mammals and more than 700 bird species, including some of the planet's most endangered! I'm also looking at Inírida, Guainía, in the Colombian Amazon forest. The 2015 movie El abrazo de la serpiente (Embrace of the Serpent) was largly filmed in the area with indigenous people acting. The final days might be in Amsterdam, Netherlands, a classic destination in Europe, full of arts, history, culture, museums and good cuisine.


There you have it: History, Cultures, Religions, Nature, Flora and Fauna, Diving, Climbing.. and a lot more. This project will take place on four continents and be ranging from tropical jungle to sandy deserts, from climbing the glaciers of the Andes mountain range to diving the Arabian Sea. Most locations from this project will feature on my YouTube channel Wanderlust I Ad Astra Jean Dar , starting during the trip at the end of this year, so subscribe to my YouTube channel!

My SRI LANKA YouTube playlist


In November-December 2021, I had another month-long trip. This time i went to the Maldives, Sri Lanka and Jordan.

My MALDIVES YouTube playlist


My MALDIVES YouTube playlist includes four videos. When i first visited the Maldives back in February 1990, never did I think this small nation would change so much so fast. China and Gulf countries have poured in a lot of money, large artificial islands have been constructed. Today the capital Malé is one of the most densely populated cities on the planet! I can only hope the world-class dive sites will not be affected, as this just would be such a loss. Watch my other YouTube videos at Wanderlust I Ad Astra Jean Dar.
