The Friday Photo Project | Bukit Lawang, Indonesia

Bukit Lawang

Bukit Lawang is a village on the Indonesian Island of Sumatra. It is known for being the gateway of the Gunung Leuser National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The park is home to various bird, plant and mammal species, most famously the Sumatran Orangutan which is why we visited.  However, the reason why I chose […]

The Friday Photo Project | Lake District in autumn

Lake District in autumn

England is a beautiful country. With its picture postcard villages in the Cotswolds to the coves and beaches of Cornwall, you are never far from stunning landscapes on this green isle. We visited the Lake District in autumn a few years ago and it has to be one of the most beautiful places we have […]

As we waited for our beers we looked around the bar and was impressed at how the clientele really took the night’s wedding theme to heart. We knew the Japanese liked dressing up but this was another level entirely. There were […]

The Friday Photo Project | Great Barrier Reef Diving

Reef Diving

One of the last places we visited on our 18 month trip was Australia. Probably not a wise move as we were broke and Australia is bloody expensive! Lucky enough we had friends and family to stay with from Perth to Melbourne. As avid scuba-diving fans we really wanted to dive the great barrier reef, […]

How I got bitten by a snake in Thailand

Bitten by a snake

It was another glorious sunny day in Pai, Thailand. We had been out all morning doing whatever we needed to do when really we had nothing to do at all. Ahhh, the freedom of travel. We jumped on our moped and headed back to our wonderful bungalow which was slightly out of town. The ride […]
