Why You Should Visit Huacachina in Peru

Why You Should Visit Huacachina in Peru

If you are visiting Peru I highly recommend visiting Huacachina. Pronounced Wah-Ka-Cheena, this amazing oasis town is in the middle of a vast network of sand dunes. And sand dunes means two things – dune buggy rides and sand boarding! Even though I had spent […]

Sunset in Chile’s Atacama Desert

Sunset in Chile’s Atacama Desert

On my recent trip to South America I visited Chile’s Atacama Desert and especially the Valley of the Moon, or as the locals say “Valle de la Luna”. We had an organised tour arranged for the valley, which finished with sunset.  After driving around the […]

Monthly Recap – December 2017

A recap of my adventures in the month of December   Well what a busy month! Despite having a very busy end of year with work, and a severe flare up of rashes and bites (Thank you South America) I still managed to cram in […]

Photo of the week … Geysers at 5000m

Photo of the week … Geysers at 5000m

You don’t really know what to expect at 5000m altitude. I certainly didn’t expect to come across an active sulfur area, complete with roaring geysers. But that is what we found as we climbed to the highest altitude I have ever reached, in the altiplano […]

Photo of the Week… Sand Dunes

Photo of the Week… Sand Dunes

If you visit Peru, I recommend a trip to the sand dunes and oasis town of Huacachina. We had a very enjoyable afternoon of riding in a sand buggy and riding sand boards down these amazing dunes!

My Top Ten: Memories of the Greek Islands

My Top Ten: Memories of the Greek Islands

The Greek Islands should be on everyone’s bucket list. You could seriously spend a few months traversing to all the islands, there is just so much choice! I had the best time sailing around for one week on a G Adventures tour. Here are my […]

Travel Essentials … Messenger Bag

Travel Essentials … Messenger Bag

I am not a huge fan of backpacks for day exploring while travelling. I know they are practical, but I’ve always thought they looked daggy and I got annoyed at constantly having to take it off my back and swinging it around to get things […]

Brighton Beach Boxes

Brighton Beach Boxes

On our recent trip to Melbourne we took a day trip out to Brighton to see the famous Brighton Beach Boxes, beach changing huts. The narrow beach at Brighton, officially Dendy Street Beach is adorned with 82 colourful painted beach huts which were mainly built […]

Photo of the Week…Roots

This is the path I take every weekend as I descend down 100+ stairs to the beach. Coming up is always a killer, especially on my dodgy knees (seriously concerned about Inca Trail in 60 or so days…). However painful the post beach climb is, […]

Photo of the Week … Mollymook

Photo of the Week … Mollymook

I feel so lucky every time I visit Mollymook, on the NSW South Coast. That means I feel lucky a lot as I tend to visit about 4 times a year, seeing as my parents have retired nearby. The South Coast of NSW features some […]

Nine Things to do in Paris

Nine Things to do in Paris

Clearly there are more than 9 things to do in Paris than what I am going to list here. And to keep things interesting, I am not going to list the big 5;  The Louvre, The Eiffel Tower, Arc De Triompe, Notre Dame Cathedral and the […]

Travel Quotes… There You Are

Travel Quotes… There You Are

I love this quote by Confuscius. It’s a good mantra for travelling, no matter where you go, there you are. It reminds you to be so present in the moment of travel. I love nothing more than taking everything in, sights, smells, experiences. Every smile, […]

My Top Ten:  Lakes of the Canadian Rockies

My Top Ten: Lakes of the Canadian Rockies

A trip to the Canadian Rockies should be on everyone’s bucket list. Whether summer or winter, skiing or hiking the sights are truly amazing. So amazing that like cathedrals and castles in Europe, mosques and pagodas in Asia – you can become a little complacent. […]

Watercress Cafe, Bali

Watercress Cafe, Bali

Whilst staying and exploring the areas of Seminyak, Legian, Chengu and Batu Belig in Bali I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of fantastic cafes, bars, restaurants and clubs on offer. It’s seriously a foodie’s dream and the prices are so reasonable! You forget you’re […]

Photo of the Week – Budapest Baths

Photo of the Week – Budapest Baths

We loved visiting the Szechenyi Baths in Budapest. We discovered them on our self guided walk around Budapest and its parks. We decided to revisit and have a swim on our last afternoon in Budapest, just before boarding an overnight train to Poland. A perfect […]

Why I didn’t love Las Vegas

Why I didn’t love Las Vegas

Vegas! It seems like the ultimate destination. Like New York, Los Angeles, Paris and London, Las Vegas gets so much publicity, both from a travel and entertainment viewpoint. I had seen the sights of Vegas on many TV shows and movies so I was super, […]

Photo of the Week – Brighton Beach

Photo of the Week – Brighton Beach

I had been meaning to visit Brighton Beach on England’s coast for the whole 8 months I was living in London. It’s an easy day trip that I finally made in my last month, when I was quickly ticking off my England “To Do’s” – […]

Travel Photography – Insects

Travel Photography – Insects

I love a good photo opportunity, especially when travelling. And with the discovery of Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest etc, I take so many more photos, even of the most benign things. I obviously suffer from FOMO, but also “FOMO-OPO”- Fear of Missing Out On Photo Opportunities. […]

Akuna Bay, Sydney

Akuna Bay, Sydney

You’ve probably driven past the sign a thousand times if you live in a part of Northern Sydney. Akuna Bay – this way, it says as you zoom down the hill towards Sydney’s Northern Beaches and Pittwater. One lazy Sunday we decided to finally drive out […]
