From birds to plastic things. Any guesses as to what the red bag in the image alongside is of?

This month you can climb to the Roof of Africa along the Machame route to the summit of Kilimanjaro, or take a trip to some ancient ruins; Peru and the enigmatic ruins of Machu Picchu

 

For something complete different go to Cebu Island and the Chocolate Hills or take a trip to Europe with amazing Insight Vacation discounts.


An amputee with attitude is in the news, and our Q&A looks at diet on Kilimanjaro.

Our picture of the month is from the base camp trail and our photo series looks at paths to  nowhere.

 

A reminder that we do not send out a newsletter in January, so we will back in February.


Our beautiful bird last month received a lot of answers. Although everyone guessed it was a vulture, those that guessed the type of vulture were Tina Skinner, Tanya Gemperle, Alain Hocepied, Neil Marcus, Andre Verster and Vicky Adams . The bird was a male Andean Condor. They are among the largest in the world that are able to fly. Because they are so heavy (up to 33 pounds), even their enormous 10-foot wingspan needs some help to keep them aloft. For that reason, these birds prefer to live in windy areas where they can glide on air currents with little effort.
