Watching the world go by in Villa de Leyva

A few hours drive outside the capital of Bogotá is a place I like to think of as ‘fantasy’ Colombia. A place set in a valley below the Andes mountain range where some locals still ride horses and meet in the square wearing a sombrero and a poncho over their shoulders. A traditional village where cobblestone streets, […]

Photodump: Little India, Singapore

Singapore might have a bright and shiny reputation, a charisma that screams efficiency, but there are a few spaces in the city where shit gets a little more real; like Little India. I love the place, and will definitely choose to stay there on our next visit. If you want to eat some authentic masala […]

Photodump: Postcode 2060

I realise how many months it’s been since I posted. Life has been consumed by multiple casual jobs, full time study and a distinct lack of adventuring worth sharing; all for a positive, higher purpose of course. However, I did take a whirlwind trip to Sydney recently to shoot some photos for a friend; she wanted to […]

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:

The thirsty outback road

One of the best things about our recent road trip to Lightning Ridge had to be some of the classic Aussie architecture. Rusty sheets of metal thrown together as a shack for miners in a treeless desert, glorious old pubs that offer man sized meals, icy cold beer and a great people watch; as well […]

Exploring the colour and backstreet graffiti of Melbourne

Any visitor to Melbourne will quickly realise that the locals don’t tolerate graffiti in their city spaces; they embrace it. For me, getting lost in the lane-ways and stumbling on a sudden burst of colour added to the anticipatory joy of turning each corner. It also tells me a lot about the people that live there. As Australia’s […]

Falling in love with our new Chinese home of Dali

After more than a year and a half on the road, it took us less than a day, fresh off the train from the bustle of Kunming City, to feel our bodies and minds react to the beauty and vibe of Dali. We wanted to stay. Bad. As a touristy small town, popular with Chinese […]

A slice of temple tranquilty in hectic Hanoi

At first glance the heaving city of Hanoi is overwhelming, in a sensory overload kind of way. Staying in the heart of the action in the Old Quarter, we took a wander through the buzz and found the ultimate city escape nearby. There’s a huge lake with a beautiful wooden bridge that crosses over to […]

Walking among the eternal Emperors of Vietnam

After gawking at the impressive Imperial City, we got to wondering what kind of place the Vietnamese Emperors saw fit to lay their princely heads to rest. After all, they didn’t seem to build anything by halves. With a morbid sense of curiosity we chose one of the many burial grounds there is to see […]

Admiring the architectural beauty of Vietnam’s Imperial City

Before recent wars Vietnam used to be a land of Emperors, with a ruling royalty that appreciated a love of traditional architecture, poetry, a passion for food, art and beautiful gardens. The Citadel at Hue stands as a crumpled monument to that time; an incredible collection of temples, public spaces, royal palaces and monumental halls. […]
