Left and Leaving

an alternative travel blog



The Santa Cruz Trek

Alongside climbing volcanoes at sunrise in East Java and walking with dragons on the island of Flores, the Santa Cruz trail immediately goes into my top three adventures of this year long trip thus far.

The Quilotoa Loop

It's three days and 30km of absolute beauty, of conversations with strangers not marred by smartphone interruptions, set to a soundtrack of silence only broken by the songs of exotic birds and rushing water...

Mount Bromo

As our planet turned to face its star, the valley turned to rust, chalk white clouds caressed its body forever and up towards Bromo, the primary colours of morning lit the trail of mist like stardust around the forest floor.

Salkantay to Machu Picchu.

Feeling like a god amongst men, but looking like a tramp that never even tried, I left the site alone.
