One of my favorite posts of the year -- a look back over the past twelve months through a collection of Dan's best Instagram and other travel photos. And here I thought 2016 was going to be a quiet year...

Last month we were fortunate to be some of the first trekkers on the Jyrgalan trek, a new trail being developed in the Tian Shan Mountains of eastern Kyrgyzstan. The three-day 55km/33.5 mile journey takes you over several mountain passes (up to 3,515 meters/11,530 feet) with stops at alpine lakes all along the way. This was one of those "disconnect to reconnect" experiences.

If you want an offbeat trek where you're only sharing the mountains with local shepherds and you're also supporting a new community NGO, the Jyrgalan trek is for you. Our latest provides all the inspiration and information you might need to undertake this trek yourself next year!

Hard to believe that it was 16 years ago that we said "I do"!!

In partnership with +The Ritz-Carlton and its #RCMemories campaign, we share six of these key moments or inflection points, and how each built on the other to create the relationship and the life we share together today – not only with each other, but also with the world.

In other words, we try to answer the oft-asked: “How did you build your crazy life…as a couple?”

What do you get when you combine competitive goat carcass polo, hunting with eagles, wrestling on horseback, sheep bone-throwing, stick wrestling — and an opening ceremony complete with hearkenings of Genghis Khan, men ablaze on horseback, and a ceremonious appearance by Steven Seagal?

The World Nomad Games in Kyrgyzstan, of course!

To help you go deeper into this unusual event, we've created an experiential guide with 24 ideas to help unpack it all: http://uncorneredmarket.com/world-nomad-games-experiential-guide/

There’s nothing so rare these days as time to one’s thoughts and sensations.

Disconnecting for five days in Botswana's Okavango Delta and deeper reaches of the Kalahari with Desert & Delta Safari camps was a way for us to clear the mind, pivot the focus, tune the senses, and connect more deeply with the people and natural world around us. Sometimes, the world can wait...

Here's more on that experience: http://uncorneredmarket.com/okavango-delta-botswana-disconnect/

We are excited to announce our new role as ambassadors for +Context Travel and their Deep Travel program in Berlin!!

In this role we will work together to connect curious and caring travelers to a local community organization supporting refugees in an immersive and learning experience. The goal: foster engagement, understanding and empathy through two-way storytelling in action.

With so much of the recent news cycle being steeped in divisiveness and fear of the "other," it's easy to be disheartened and lose sight of the collective impact of individual connections and actions to redirect the flow of energy. That's what makes this Deep Travel approach to travel, and initiatives like this, perhaps more relevant than ever.

More thoughts on this power of individual interactions in the world of travel and details of this new project here: http://uncorneredmarket.com/deep-travel-project-context-travel/

It’s likely that you’ll visit Chobe, #Botswana motivated primarily by the draw of game drives and the cycle of wildlife along the river’s edge. However, thanks to some select activities we not only had a unique safari experience, but we also emerged with a sense of Botswana’s history and a deep taste of its local culture.

Read on our experiential travel guide to Chobe with 20 ideas to get you started on your own #ThisIsChobe  experience: http://uncorneredmarket.com/chobe-experiential-travel-guide/
