Cappadocia Turkey Cappadocia Turkey

The sun is still rising above the horizon when the hot-air balloon begins to gain altitude. As we do so the moonscape of Cappadocia, Tukey begins to take shape: a wide stark plain crossed by valleys and rock formations so bizarre they resemble some of Salvador Dalí’s famous paintings in which objects bend, melt and blend together challenging the rules of nature.


Switzerland is Breathtaking Take My Breath Away

Certainly one of the most poignant first impressions has been the mountains themselves. Imposingly tall and balefully glaciated, the Alps make it impossible for any first-time visitor to leave without having had at least three take-your-breath-away moments.

Anniversary of the First Ascent The First Ascent

On the 150th anniversary of the first ascent of the Matterhorn (4478m), there has been much celebrating in the streets of Zermatt. There has also been a more somber commemoration of the four climbers who died on the descent of that famous climb back in 1865.


Alpinism's Golden Age Alpinism's Golden Age

Much like the Vedas call the devout to the shores of the Ganges River and the Quran inspires Hajj to Mecca, the European Alps encourage, if not demand, even the least pious of mountain enthusiasts to make a pilgrimage to the hallowed mountains.
