Adrift on Mt Myōkō

Earlier this year I tagged along with the Australian/International off-pissed ski team to the slopes of Myokokogen.  Matt chose Myoko because the guidebook gave it four and half snowflakes out of five in the ‘powder’ category.  Also because our plan called for us to go from there to Kyoto and then onto Tokyo and we wanted to make sure our itinerary doubled as a tongue twister.

Mt Huashan, China

Huashan is a mountain located  about 120 kilometres east of Xi’an- China’s old capital.  It’s home to some very dicey walking tracks, a really spectacular set of cable cars, a tea house perched on a cliff face and a photo studio with some genuine occupational health and safety issues.

Chengdu & the Chinese Dream

The entry point for my brief tour of China was the southern Province of Sichuan-famed for its incredibly spicy food and baffling theatrical performances.  I flew into the capital Chengdu at the start of October and explored the city between bouts of rain before venturing out into the nearby mountains.

Demonstrations and civil unrest in Turkey began on 28 May 2013 in response to government plans to remove Gezi Park in Istanbul.  The violent response by authorities to the initial protest prompted greater crowds in the following days.  It's estimated that three and a half million people took part in demonstrations in a number of cities across Turkey.

One protestor holds a portrait of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk- seen as the founder of modern Turkey and a much more secular ruler than the current President Recep Erdoğan.
