I put together a 12 week fitness program for anyone looking to get into shape for a trek or expedition. I hope you find this useful.

Here is a 12 week fitness program I used to get fit for my expedition to climb volcanos in Kamchatka in the Russian Far East.

Kamchatka Peninsula, Russia from the International Space Station
If anyone is interested in climbing these volcanos, I am running an expedition to Kamchatka in July. Over 200km of trekking and climbing four or five volcanos. More details here: http://secretcompass.com/expeditions/land-fire-kamchatka-siberia/

Kamchatka Peninsula, Russia | International Space Station
April 22, 2014: As the International Space Station passed over the Bering Sea on Earth Day, one of the Expedition 39 crew members aboard the orbital outpost shot this panoramic scene looking toward Russia. The Kamchatka Peninsula can be seen in the foreground. Sunglint is visible on the left side of the frame.

Only two points of view from Earth orbit were better for taking in this scene than that of the crew member with the camera inside, and those belonged to the two spacewalking astronauts -- Flight Engineers Rick Mastracchio and Steve Swanson of NASA.

Samarkand - Madrassa on the Silk Road
In 2010 I took the "Golden road to Samarkand" and the other legendary towns of the Silk Road, Khiva and Bukhara, in Uzbekistan. Most of the monuments of Uzbekistan have undergone major restoration; one would even argue that they have been over restored. Whatever the case maybe they still make make an awe inspiring impression as you stand before them. There is so much history and so much to see. I would love to go back and spend some more time wandering the streets and bazaars of this lovely country.

I took this photograph in one of the many 15 century madrassas, or religious schools, of Samarkand. I tucked my self into a corner of the courtyard and used my Nikon 10.5mm fisheye lens to get this effect. More on my website www.amardevsingh.com

We travel not for trafficking alone;
By hotter winds our fiery hearts are fanned:
For lust of knowing what should not be known
We take the Golden Road to Samarkand.

My photograph of Mutnovsky volcano in Kamchatka was published in the Metro newspaper in London on Thursday 16 January 2014. I am sure the commuters squished in the Tube were very envious of the figure standing alone with all that space around her! 

Anyone inspired and wants to join my photo tour to the volcanos of Kamchatka in June 2014 visit my site for details: http://www.amardevsingh.com/tours/kamchatka-2014/
