I, and I'm assuming most of you, have great memories of playing Monopoly. Hours of strategy, highs when you win, disappointments when you lose and for some people winning was all that mattered - no matter what it took to achieve this goal. So I was very excited when I stumbled across a set of Monopoly Deal Cards at the checkout of my local supermarket before I departed on my trip to Pakistan. I had been very concerned as to how I was going to keep myself occupied during the trek (limited weight and no electricity for 3 weeks) and this seemed like a great idea.

How do you describe a trek through one of the more remote places on earth for 13 days; seeing the worlds 2nd highest mountain and 48 hours driving on a road that has been referred to as the 9th wonder of the world? Awesome, amazing, awe-inspiring, an experience? How would the description change if during the above experience 3 people died and another 2 were seriously injured?

It has been a while - I know. I've been travelling in Pakistan and Indonesia for the past 6 weeks and its taken a little while to get used to staying in the same place (and organising photo's and writing the posts - which is happening so watch this space...) In the meanwhile, please enjoy some pictures from the amazing views that we experienced on our trek up the Baltoro Glacier in Pakistan.
