From riding for 22 hours on an overcrowded train in China...to lying under a perfectly silent starlit African sky.
From biting into a fresh mango on a white sand beach in Thailand...to snacking on a barbecued tarantula in Cambodia.
From gliding over Victoria Falls on a microlight in Zambia...to being stalked by a pack of hyenas for an evening in Namibia.
From being put up for the night by a Burmese monk atop a holy mountain...to undergoing a full body search by a paramilitary group in Laos.
From lifting camp at 5600m altitude under -45░C gale force winds in Bolivia...to riding a camel in the scorching Sahara desert.
Welcome to Y2K Travels, a website with films, pictures and stories of some of the peoples & places we (Yannick & Kathleen) have had the privilege to come across during our 7 years of travelling together (2000-2007). In doing so, we hope to spread our love for this beautiful planet and encourage responsible eco-tourism and the preservation of our rich global cultural heritage and amazing biodiversity. Please note that Yannick and Kathleen separated in 2007 (they remain best of friends) and so this website is not being updated anymore. You can check out Yannick's latest adventures on his new website: www.postcardsfromtheedge.ca
Note: A documentary film of our 2005 expedition across the Andes mountain range is available for order. It follows our experience crossing some of the highest deserts in the world, while being completely self-powered and self-sufficient with no communication device, GPS, or backup vehicle.
