In 2010 I set off for five months of travel in South America. I had only made a few plans of where I was going to go, and they were very loose plans too! One of the places I never … Continue reading
When I saw that this month’s TravelLinkUp topic was My Greatest Adventure, I knew exactly what to write about. I had dreamt about South America from the age of 14. I knew nothing about the continent, until one Geography lesson when … Continue reading
When I think back to my five months travelling in South America, there are so many things I think of; the cities I visited, the people I met, the long bus journeys, the colours, the food, the languages, CouchSurfing. But … Continue reading
Ah, waterfalls. Such a beautiful part of nature. So mesmerising to watch and so refreshing to stand under. A little while I go I shared my thoughts and photographs of Iguazu falls from the Brazilian and Argentinian sides. Today, it’s … Continue reading

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.
