From stones to tar strips. Do you know where this famous place is?

Trains, planes and busses line up to take you on a tour across Vietnam from North to South, exploring this exotic land, while the remote Himalayan people of the Langtang region wait to meet you on this spectacular short trek in Nepal.

If you are looking for romance then head across to Italy on this stunning 8 day tour. Or for the avid gardeners, there is the Chelsea flower show to look forward to in 2019.

Odd weather in Africa is in the news, and our Q&A looks at adjusting to altitude.

Our picture of the month is of a bird over Island Peak and our photo series looks ways to make wheels work.

Last month's image seems to have been a tough image as not one person got it right. Though we do admire the guess work involved by some. The closest came from Annemarie Koekemoer who said it was a memorial to Hillary and Norgay but it is in fact the memorial to Mallory and Irvine. It is found at Everest Base Camp on the north face. We hope that this month will be a lot easier.

Question of the Month
How can I predict how I will cope with altitude?
To be honest, this is an 'unknown' factor as no-one can predict how your body will cope at altitude. People who have been to altitude many times in the past without problems, may suddenly develop problems. There are many factors that play a role. The way to help combat this, is to take all necessary precautions, and walk slowly, acclimatise correctly, don't ascend too quickly and drink plenty of water.
If you have a question you want answered, send it to us. We publish one per month.
