This is the path that goes all the way around the Spanish island of Menorca. It's about 180 kilometres long and you can travel by foot, by bike, or by horse.

For hikers, it's between 6-10 days. For bikers, between 3-6. You pass through such a variety of landscapes as the coast changes a lot. There are also towns and big cities along the way.

For help in organising a trip, I would recommend using +Camí de Cavalls 360º.

I know I've been showing you a lot of Menorca's coastline, but this Spanish island also has some fascinating history. This stone structure was made by an unknown civilisation more than 2500 years ago!

There are dozens of sites around the island that were made by ancient people - but we don't really know who they were or what these things represent. It's fascinating to visit some of them and marvel at the mystery!

With todays technology maybe it's possible to "finger print" the manner in which these stones were placed. Comparatively speaking.

Thousands of blue jellyfish, washed up on the beach in Menorca.

The coastline always has surprises for you here on this Spanish island. Even in summer, there are quiet beaches where you can get away from other tourists. But especially now in April, it's easy to have places like this all to yourself..

Cycling in Menorca. If you like an adventurous ride, then this Spanish island could be for you.

There are some flat bits and easy stretches but also some uphill and bumpy areas. Here, my local guide is showing the best way to do a tricky part.

The famous Cami de Cavalls trail goes around the edge of the entire island. You can do the whole thing in 3 - 6 days, depending on your experience.

Do you remember that I went to the Spanish island of Menorca last year? Well - I'm going back this weekend and can't wait!

Menorca is very close to Mallorca and Ibiza but I think it feels much more relaxed. The nature there is particularly special. So I'm going to be spending my time hiking, biking... and maybe swimming (is it warm enough yet?). Follow along!

In the empty sands, on the edge of California's Joshua Tree National Park, is the Noah Purifoy Desert Art Museum. This collection of art, mostly made of scrap, is the product of 15 years of work of artist Noah Purifoy.

He died in 2004 but his legacy lives on. There are about a hundred pieces placed together in the desert and it's free for you to just wander around and explore it however you want. A remarkable place!

Another little hidden bit of Menorca's coastline. This is Cales Coves.

You have to hike a little to get to this spot but it's worth it for the views. These bays also have historical significance. The cliffs have dozens of caves dug into them that were used as burial places by an unknown civilisation that lived on the Spanish island thousands of years ago!

Today I'm on the south coast of Menorca, seeing a bit more of the trail that goes all the way around the island.

My hiking has brought me to Macarelleta, the little beach you can see in the middle there. Completely empty, it's just me on the sand. If the wind wasn't so cold, I might consider a swim!

The trail that runs all around the edge of Menorca has brought me here - to Pregonda Beach.

This Spanish island has some magnificent views, especially along the coast. Would you rather be here right now?? :)

I've just arrived on the Spanish island of Menorca. What a beautiful spot to start the trip - right by the coast at the town of Galdana.

For the next couple of days I'll be hiking and biking my way along some of the trails here. Hopefully this glorious blue sky will stay for the whole time!

All the art pieces at the Noah Purifoy Desert Art Museum are outside. They sit in the desert near California's Joshua Tree National Park - and they change over time with the elements.

But another wonderful thing is that they change depending on the sunlight and the weather. When I visited last week, a storm was rolling in. The whole place changed from bright sunlight to this. Pretty dramatic, isn't it?

If you're looking for cacti at Joshua Tree National Park, you can find them throughout. But for the densest gathering of them, you need to head to the Cholla Cactus Garden!

An amazing collection of art. Each piece is fascinating and provokes a lot of thought. As a museum, it works on a higher level as well. The backgrounds and the desert setting add a really cool atmosphere as well. The museum is really close to the entrances to Joshua Tree National Park and so it is well worth stopping by on the way to the park. It's free to get in and wander around - there's a good chance you would be on your own here too, which is great fun!

Seriously understaffed and no attempt to deal with the enormous queue of people waiting to pick up a car. Had to wait over 90 minutes. All the other rental car companies at the same location were much faster.

One of the most interesting things to do in Walhalla and definitely worth the time, if you're visiting. The tour takes about an hour and you learn a lot about the mining industry and the history of the town. The guides are really knowledgable and you get to see a fair bit, even though you don't actually walk too far through the mines.

Wouldn't use this Payless again. The car was fine but the shuttle was severely late in both directions. Came very close to missing flight after waiting 40 mins for it. Most other rental companies have cars at the airport (or much more frequent shuttles) and its worth a few extra dollars.

A rather unimpressive site and, in my opinion, not really worth the difficult effort to get there. I visited because it is one of Vietnam's World Heritage Sites. The history is interesting but there is very little to see there these days - just really the wall and gates around the site. The entire interior is now used as farmland by locals. In fact, seeing them work and have a bit of a chat with some farmers was much more interesting than the ruins of the citadel!

A fun little activity during for a stay in charming Walhalla. The train takes about 20 minutes in each direction and the real attraction is the scenery along the way. It is a slice of the gold rush days and the whole thing is run by passionate volunteers.

An incredibly beautiful place and really easy to get to from Melbourne. A lot of locals know about it and will go for a weekend or a holiday - but I think more tourists should visit as well. It's a perfect slice of Australia. The most important thing to know in advance is that there is very limited accommodation in the park itself and you should really book something in advance. If you're just popping in for the day, though, there are some towns near the entrance that have hotels and camping grounds.
