Well we are in Mexico right now, flew out last week from sunny UK ( actually its not sunny at all ) and presently are hovering around the Riviera Maya area which is a little south of Cancun.

More about this expedition to Mexico in a future feature article series on Globetrooper but lets say we are travel blogging here and there as far as the patchy hotel wi-fi permits, all great fun and a world away from the office back home.

There are some pretty cool and original trip ideas listed on Globetrooper this week, it is clear that a lot of people are taking their 2012 travel plans and aspirations very seriously indeed and hope to find some equally serious travel partners along the way!

Some of the trip ideas that piqued our curiosity this time around across the site include exciting travel propositions to distant New Zealand, Thailand and a rather unique trip idea that takes travelers trekking around the Albanian Alps in Eastern Europe.

Trekking in the Albanian Alps

One of the more adventurous trip ideas that caught our eye is a guided tour proposal from Globetrooper user Migen.

For any users that feel like hiking in the Albania pastures and seeing the rural life in Albania this could be a trip of great interest, take a look at the trip lowdown.

The Alpine Pastures offer one of the least explored paths of the Albanian mountains.

Used not so often by peasant families during communism is considered a hidden unspoiled area.
As we walk through these gorgeous mountains we will be accommodated in the peasant’s alpine huts.

The local cuisine and hospitality is particularly interesting in the end of a long day. Discover more about this guided tour to Albania.
