Egypt | 5 Funny Phrases You’ll Hear!

Egypt introduced me to the phrase ‘culture shock‘. When I visited Egypt in December 2012 it was my first across seas trip. It was the one of the first literal eye-opening adventures I have had. Egypt has had its issues throughout the past years though if you get the chance to visit I guarantee the trip to the country, which is so rich in history, art and breathtaking architecture, is well worth it!

While you venture through Egypt you’re bound to here these hilarious phrases …

If I’m missing any that you encountered let me know in the comments!

**Disclaimer: Life, Love and Adventure & fellow collaborators are in no way recommending anyone to participate in potentially dangerous activities; as well, we in no way are responsible if injuries may occur during said activities. — Please evaluate your own physical capabilities before taking on a tasking or potentially dangerous activities.


In ‘Danger, should you let it hold you back? Part 1‘ we adventured through one of the most dangerous hikes, the Kalalau Trail, in Hawaii and then down the Carretera de la muerte (Death Road) in Bolivia. We bungee jumped in Cancun, Mexico, climbed up Angels Landing in Zion National Park, Utah and experienced a traumatizing bike ride through Ho Chi Mihn City, Vietnam!

This time we hear of more potentially dangerous adventures, ranging from surviving an avalanche on Mt. Everest to getting robbed in Africa .. and more!, around the world from fellow travel bloggers who have experienced fear, uncertainty and danger first hand!

The danger about it is not in the road itself, it’s in the Himalayas Region

When I was planning my trip around Asia I was looking for all kinds of adventures and challenges. I was talking with my work colleagues about my plan and one of them told me, “You should do the Everest Base Camp Trek.” I got intrigued by it, so I start planning with the idea of doing it.

All the things I read about it online said it was really doable for any person and it’s an easy walk all the way to the Base Camp … and it is, however the danger about it is not in the road itself, it’s in the Himalayas Region.

Have you ever looked danger in the eyes and said, “&^%$# it! I’m going to do this, even if it’s potentially dangerous and might scare me to death ?

I certainly have … I can’t say I regret a moment of it .. but I also can’t say I’d sign myself up for some adventures again, haha! Sometimes activities are given the title ‘dangerous’ because there is the potential hazard of injury but it’s not always the case especially if you are aware, use common sense and abide by the rules set in place.

Here are some potentially dangerous activities/places around the world that myself and fellow travel bloggers have experienced and completed safely.

Kalalau Trail, Kauai, Hawaii

The Kalalau Trail, located along the Na Pali Coastl on Hawaii’s island of Kauai, has been named one of the most dangerous hiking trail in the world. It is 11 miles long each way and typically takes a day to hike in and a day to hike out. There have been several known casualties and injuries along this hike; though, most are caused by disregarding signs or overconfidence when faced with a spot on the trail that is very hazardous and unpredictable. The most common fatality is drowning, over 100 lives have been lost swimming at the remote beaches along the hike because the currents are extremely unpredictable.

Be sure to obey each and every park sign you may pass, they are there for a reason!

During this hike there are three streams that must be crossed in order to advance further along the hike. These three streams can, and have been known to, Continue reading

Backyard Travel | Ancient Forest, British Columbia, Canada.

Ancient Forest, Prince George, British Coumbia

The Ancient Forest is now equipped with a wheel chair accessible boardwalk that offers gorgeous views of the forest.

In the works of becoming the next UNESCO World Heritage Site!

The Ancient Forest is located on Highway 16 about 1 hour and 30 minutes from Prince George, British Columbia. The Ancient Forest is a wet belt forest located in Northern BC. The most questionable thing about the forest, you will wonder the same thing if you live in this region, is how does it survive the super-hot, dry summers and long, snowy, freezing winters? It makes no sense to me! The forests are now being studied by students at the University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC). They answered this question for us,
