...On Comments...

Hey friends, just a little message on commenting on this website. Please read this before you leave comments within this space.

First of all, your comments won't automatically be published when you submit them. Why is that? Simply because we need to check them to make sure they're OK to be published. Now, OK doesn't mean that only positive feedback will be published. Your comments and constructive criticism are always welcome. We're all different individuals and have a right to have different opinions, at least within this space. We also have a right and responsibility to treat each other with respect and kindness, no matter the background.

This is why, any comments including any of the below (or may easily be interpreted as so) won't be published:

  • Racist or bigoted or discriminative speech
  • Anything that is abusive to another individual
  • Sexually explicit content
  • Descriptions of violent or criminal acts
  • Any comments that seem to have only been left for the purpose of advertisement or promotion
  • Unlicensed copyrighted material
  • Threats, harassment, or personal privacy violations

In fact, as soon as I come across them, it will give me the outmost joy to delete them - especially if they offend anyone else - so all the negativity turns right into digital dust. As the owner of this website, I reserve myself the right to remove and not publish any comments I don't see fit at any given time.

I believe we can have discussions, give feedback and constructive criticism, etc. without always being on the same page. It is in keeping calm that we can create understanding. It is understanding we can use to make this world a wee bit of a better place. Don't let fear and hatred guide the creation of your words and actions.

Sendero Cerro Guanaco, Tierra del Fuego

This was the first hike to really challenge me. I would get first glimpses of what Patagonian weather can be like.
The views of Tierra del Fuego, the experience hiking to the summit of Cerro Guanaco were simply humbling.

Avalanche Peak Loop via Avalanche Peak and Scott’s Track

Arthur's Pass is one of my favorite areas in the South Island of New Zealand which puts Avalanche Peak Trail on the list of my personal hiking treasures in the country so far.
Lovely early autumn weather made this a nice, steep but relaxing trekking experience.

Pinnacles Summit via Webb Creek and Pinnacles Track (Kauaeranga Kauri Trail)

This track was my very first dive into New Zealand's world of tramping:
Rainforest vibes, very old trees, a staircase to heaven,...
Well, not heaven but to the summit of the Pinnacles, at least.
Oh, and views that expand over almost the entire Coromandel peninsula.
