Tag your it says Chris @BackpackerBanter as he runs away laughing, back to his south american paradise, surfing and sipping ice cold beer, whilst I'm stuck in an office under miserable grey skys.  Git!  Haha, i jest thanks Chris.  I love being tagged in series like this, its a great way for me to remind [...]

One of the main attractions i'd read about before visiting Grenada was the Seven Sisters Waterfalls.  It popped up on all the top 10's i'd read and from the pictures id seen it looked amazing.  It also seemed like fate to be visiting waterfalls called Seven Sisters.  If you've read my site before you'll know [...]

Photo Essay: 4 weeks of InterRailing around Europe

By | February 24th, 2012|Austria, Czech Rep, Germany, Hungary, Photographic Inspiration|

In the spring of 2010, whilst I was still 25 (just), I used up a great chunk of my annual leave from work to go inter-railing around parts of Europe. Annual leave well taken! The significance of being 25 at the time was that my age meant I was still eligable for a youth ticket, [...]

2011 in summary, and what 2012 may hold in store.

By | December 30th, 2011|Photographic Inspiration, Travel|

For someone who works the 9-5 I think I do ok in terms of seeing new parts of the globe each year.  Lucky for me that the company I work for lets me buy extra holiday too, so instead of 25 days annual leave, this year I had 35 days.  The royal wedding also afforded [...]

By | August 22nd, 2011|New Zealand, Photographic Inspiration|

The Tongariro Crossing is probably one of the hardest hikes I've ever completed, but to be able to walk one of the 'sets; of my favourite books/movies made it all totally worth while.  Call me sad, but I'm a big Lord of the Rings fan. I've read the books, watched the films and occasionally dress as [...]
