"Hiking Canada, Europe and Asia" izsak02's Profile

Ontario, Canada

What we did:
Camping in Ontario Provincial and National Parks.

Ontario Parks are mostly near the Great Lakes of Ontario. Visiting any of these beautiful and well maintained parks is the best way to enjoy Ontario, and to get away from a busy Toronto life.

Highlight:
Backpacking the Highland Trail in Algonquin Provincial Park.
This particular trail has 19km and 35km loops. The campgrounds are well maintained and you'll always be near the lakes.


Alberta, Canada

What we did:
Scrambling in the Canadian Rockies.

Mountains in the Rockies are spectacular. Witnessing the views in this area for even a short time will be tattooed in your mind forever.
Take a short hike, camp, or scramble the mountains for best experience.

Highlight:
Backpacking in the Skoki area of Lake Louise.
For this trip, we set a base camp and bagged a few summits. It's a less crowded area of Lake Louise. Very quiet and very beautiful.
Lodges are also available in the area if you choose not to camp.


South Korea

What we did:
Work, Travel, Hike and Camp.

Highlight:
Backpacking the island of Jeju-Do.
This island is in the southern tip of Korea, and it's a 'must visit' place.
We toured the entire island in 6 days and camped on the beaches for 4 nights.


Philippines 2007

What we did:
Hike, Camp and Travel.

So what was new in Manila after 11 years? More people and more diesel fumes.

Highlights:
Camping on the beaches of Pundaquit, Zambales, hiking on Batad Rice Terraces, and traveling around Bohol Island.


Thailand

This Thailand travel included a visit to the temples of Bangkok, a trip to the island of Koh Samui, a short hike in Khao Sok National Park, and an adventure trek in Chiang Mai.
It was also our entry and exit points to our trip to IndoChina.


IndoChina - same same... but different

What we did:
Backpacking in Laos, Vietnam, and Cambodia.

Highlites:
2-day boat trip on the Mekong River in Laos,
2-day boat cruise in Halong Bay in Vietnam,
3-day tour of Angkor Wat in Cambodia.


Germany

For my day trip in Germany, I only planned to see Frankfurt Main area and nothing else. The rest of my journey was just all about jumping from one train to another, and lots and lots of walking. Then I spent the night at the airport to wait for my morning flight.


Poland

Scrambling on Poland's highest point - Mt. Rysy.
