Climbing a Volcano (Mt. Erciyes)

While traveling I feel the urge to climb the mountains around and if you ever travel to Kayseri Erciyes will tower over you taunting you to see if you can make it to the top. Erciyes is the 6th highest mountain in Turkey at 3,917 meters and is actually a dormant volcano believed to have last erupted in 6880 BC. Here is a summary of my day trip to the summit of Erciyes. 


Finding Adventure in the Unexpected

Recently I’ve put a lot of thought into what defines ‘adventure.’ It could be anything that you don’t normally do – staying in a hotel for the weekend; exploring parts of the city that you’ve never been to; backpacking through Africa; climbing Everest without extra oxygen. Really, an adventure is anything that puts you out of your comfort zone, an extraordinary experience. To me, an experience really becomes an adventure when plans change and unexpected things start to happen. Well see how our Bike trip became an adventure.
