United Arab Emirates – 2013

One of the first things we did was exit our hotel and walked a few blocks in the sweltering 113ºF (45ºC) heat in search of the Big Bus Tour. We aren’t tour people but this tour was a great way to get our bearings in such a new and spread out city. Sadly, the best part about the bus tour for myself was the soundtrack which played between commentary. It was that good I spent a bit of time in search for it online but couldn’t track it down. My success rate for tracking things down is usually quite high.

Island Peak – Nepal 2013

A lot of training and gear selection went towards the preparation of a hopeful summit of Island Peak (Imja Tse) 20,305ft. With the biggest snowfall Nepal had experienced in almost a century, our dreams of climbing our first peak above 6000m vanished overnight. We were trekking towards Gokyo Lakes when the snow started to fall. At first the snow was light and made for great photos, but three hours later it was falling in sheets.
