I’ve picked out my top 10 travel photos that i’ve taken. Not just for the image itself but also for the memories attached to them… Let me take you on a journey. Enjoy 🙂
(1) The Chitwan District, Nepal
Sunset over rice fields in Nepal. You can see The Himalayas peeking out in the background. This photo was taken during monsoon season when the rice fields were soaked with monsoon rain.
(2) Bodh Gaya, India
Colourful prayer flags on top of a hill. Bogh Gaya was a very spiritual place. This image reminds me of the most adventurous 3 days we had in India.
(3) Taj Mahal, India
A side view of the stunning wonder. I love the beautiful colours of the women’s saris in the foreground.
(4) Florianópolis, Brazil
Finding paradise – discovering a deserted beach after walking along a trail for 2hrs. Pure bliss!
(5) Perito Moreno Glacier, Argentina
Stunning – the 30km long glacier.
(6) San Pedro de Atacama, Chile
The driest desert in the world. Landscape like i’ve never seen before. So unspoilt. These men were enjoying an afternoon of horse riding.
(7) Altiplano Andino, Bolivia.
Just beautiful. Part of a journey from Chile to Bolivia. You may not believe it from the photo but it was freezing!
(8) The Amazon Rainforest, Brazil
Drifting through The Amazon and playing panpipes.
(9) Gran Sabana, Venezuela
Finding this beauty after being on buses for many days to get to Venezuela.
(10) Pichilemu, Chile
Camping at the end of a special trip in middle Chile. The bright lights of the town from the camping site.
Pull up a chair and join me for dinner at Cau, an Argentinian restaurant.
Let’s start with pão de queijo, otherwise know as fresh cheesy buns. Served with chimichurri.
Oh and you’ll need a refreshing, icy, passionfruit capiriña, to wash those down.
Now feast your eyes on these spicy prawn skewers…
With a squeeze of lime.
Or maybe you prefer the goat’s cheese, serrano and sweet fig flatbread?
Ok, time for the main. A hearty serving of squid ink risotto…
And the evening ended with fireworks, literally.
aaaaaand a chocolate and orange jar cake
Or a dulce de leche melting fondant
This was the New Year’s Eve menu and left me smiling all the way into 2014. Cheers!
