Photodump: the last days of Winter

After a whirlwind South America trip, coming down from the Colombian experience has been made all the easier by focusing on the beauty in our own backyard. With the last days of Winter reminding us very much of Spring and a lengthy visit from my parents, returning to the usual routine has been pretty special. These snap shots are […]

Photodump: Beyond Salento in Colombia’s coffee region

Hiring a dirt bike to wind our bumpy way through the mountains surrounding the beautiful town of Salento might just have to be regarded as one our best experiences this trip. Passing through shady roads alongside towering bamboo forests, along high mountain ridge lines and through tiny villages… Across lonely bridges made for the fluctuating force […]

Photodump: Chinatown, Singapore

Singapore has an awesome Chinatown, set within a backdrop of colourful colonial architecture, a thriving market and some very chatty locals. Chinese Singpaoreans are totally up for a game of regular mahjong if you show enough interest. There’s also a temple housing a tooth relic of Buddha that glows with hundreds of statues in his […]

Settling in to Siem Reap

Returning to Cambodia after a four year hiatus feels very cruisy. The familiar smell of red jasmine growing over fences, the wafts of burning rubbish, lemongrass and coconut curry, welcoming us back with open arms. To find yourself revisiting a place that you know even a little means the desire to rush around and see the main […]

Photodump: Postcode 4006

Autumn is coming to an end in our little sub-tropical city, making way for bright blue Winter skies and fresh winds. Perfect strolling on the sunny side of the street weather. Thought I’d share a snapshot of today’s wandering around nearby Fortitude Valley. Kris Social media whore us:

Photodump: Shades of Melbourne Winter

Somehow I have only ever visited Melbourne in the Winter, this visit culminating in a particularly cold and moody climate. Living in a subtropical part of Australia it’s nice to be reminded what a true Winter feels like; blustery, drizzly and often grey. At the same time, Melbourne does an excellent job of chasing away the […]

Photodump: Noosa dreaming

Living 1,000 kilometres from my family means catch up time is always precious. Without a doubt, every time we meet I feel the pull to return closer to Sydney. The pull being extra strong after the latest visit; girlie days spent with my big sister and niece in Noosa. Hiking in the bush, watching sunset […]

Photodump: Hiking the Coomera Circuit

Lamington National Park will always be one of my favourite places to escape the city and today was no exception. As a group of friends and I prepare for a 55km fundraising hike at the end of June, it feels kinda nice to have ‘training’ in a World Heritage listed rainforest. The Coomera Circuit is my […]

Photodump: Magical Mount Warning

With Autumn skies belting out a ridiculously balmy blue, the rainforest is singing  a very sweet green right now. Sweaty and tropical, Mount Warning stands as the ancient plug of a vast and extinct Tweed Volcano. Climbing the mountain means you’ll be looking out over distant cliffs, relishing the shade under the endless canopy, rock […]

Photo dump: Up close and vibrant

Another sunshine filled day roaming Brisbane’s many beauties. Today we pulled out the macro lens and dove into Roma Street Parkland. The mixture of ‘Nanna flower’ meets colour explosion brings a humbling energy. Jasmine’s aroma scenting the path, our delighted noses leading the way. A flower within a flower, a puddle in a petal, an insect’s […]
