I like hiking and treks- I've done "rifugio" (mountain hut) treks in Spain, Italy, Austria, Chile and Nepal. I've backpacked with tents in Egypt, Jordan, Israel, India and the U.S.

Lately I've gotten into bouldering.

This question is similar to this one and this one, and they both have many good answers.

comment Rifugio (Mountain Hut) trek in Austria
I'm interested in hut-to-hut walk, either a loop or with the ability to get back to the start via hitchhiking or public transportation ... I prefer such trips over using a single location as a hub for day hikes.

comment Long distance hiking trail markings in North America or parts thereof
Two-color blazes are common in Israel. They are always a combination of white and another color, and that "other color" appears on hiking maps for that trail.

comment What are some proven methods of training for week long backpacking trips in high altitude?
I've heard that aspirin is a bad idea when at high altitude. It can mask the onset of a headache, which is one of your first warning signs that you're encountering altitude issues. Usually you take something like Diamox.
