The Island Trilogy

We are island folk down here. We live on an island state, of an island country that is also an island continent. Around our little island home are some other small islands dotted about the coast. While travelling further afield is still not on the cards, we’ve been exploring our own patch a little more... Continue Reading →

Calling Lonely Planet

The final delayed instalment to the Flinders Island exploration. “Were’s Lonely Planet!?” asked Steve, sweeping his arms across our surroundings, which were made up of granite boulders, pristine beach, crystal clear water, sunshine and not another human to be seen, “it’s better than the Bay of Fires and no people!” We had indeed stumbled upon...

A Freedom Ramble

“I think we’re going the wrong way.” Well, that took all of five minutes. Those navigational gremlins don’t just perch on our shoulder, those beasties just take up residence.

On our travels we daily expressed how fortunate we were, to be in a position to see the amazing things we’d seen, to travel as we did, in the manner... Continue Reading →

October 6 - Singapore Another fabulous, sunny and scorching hot day, another day to roam and see some more of Singapore.

Perambulating Amongst Plants

October 5 - Singapore  After I got in an early morning run before things got too hot, we got started on our day. Today we did one thing, so I’m not going to do a whole lot of talking, I’ll just let the pictures tell the story. The one thing we did was explore the... Continue Reading →
