NEXT TIME ON 180 STAYS…THE PHILLIPINES…
Often referred to as the ‘Eighth Wonder of the World’, the Banaue rice terraces were constructed over 2000 years ago by the native Ifugao people. Still in use today, these remarkable rice terraces stretch like stepping stones towards the sky – some reaching an altitude of 1500 m (4920 ft). The best way to view the terraces is from a nearby viewpoint, where the lush green terraces unfold below and sunlight reflects off the surface of the pools. There is an action packed 3 hour trek to visit the Hanging Coffins in Echo Valley and a visit to the town cemetery and then stop to view the hanging coffins. Dangling high up on the limestone cliffs, the coffins are both mystifying and eerie in their presence. Then I can continue on by crossing a shallow river, pass by a coffee plantation and a small waterfall to end at the Sagada weaving factory.
FOLLOW THIS WITH NEW ZEALAND, FIJI & MICRONESIA!THEN THE BALTIC COUNTRIES, PORTUGAL AND A LITTLE MORE NORWAY… MAYBE EVEN ANTARCTICA.
