    Smile Treks/Expeditions

    Treks on different paths through the rainforest take place before and after breakfast, lunch and dinner. And visitors never know what awaits them around a bend.




    What does 'Treks" mean here? Is it "Hiking; Expeditions; or Travelling?"
    Second, is "around a bend" synonymous with "around a corner?" Thanks.

    Re: Treks/Expeditions

    Trek here means a hike, yes. A walk.

    Around the bend is the same as around the corner, but a path bends and winds - it rarely has sharp corners, so "around the bend" is a better choice here.

    (Note, by the way, that "he's gone 'round the bend" is slang for "he's gone crazy.")
