Ok It's The Big 4 in my case but this is the last of them and the one I forgot the most. In fact until I got to Africa, I didn't know Buffalo were one of them, I thought Hippos were. I didn't get a lot of chances to photograph the buffalo up close but … Continue reading Rounding out The Big 5
This pride of female lions were a great find, however the area was pretty crowded by other trucks at the time so it was difficult to get a clear front on shot of them even as they sauntered right next to our truck. Also I was pretty distracted (again) by the cubs and how cute … Continue reading The Pride
Okay don't shoot me for the crappy title, but photographing these guys really did drive me crazy. I found it really difficult to get clear photos from afar, or to get them all in the frame- even though they stop and stare at you while the tour guide is talking, and walk away when he … Continue reading These Guys Giraffe Me Crazy

On TV of course, who hasn't listened to David Attenborough talk for hours on end. But I had never seen one … Continue reading Thank you Southern Africa for my new favourite animal
If you've been wondering where in Africa I have been, wonder no more and just stare at the back of my shirt like so many random people have been doing. If I'm honest I'm not entirely sure where I've been, it all went by so fast. But basically I went on a round trip from … Continue reading Ngepi, Namibia, you stole my heart.
Who was the bastard sent straight from hell that designed sleeping bag covers?
As I was doing my usual internet stroll the other day I came across an article that really struck me as interesting. It simply posed the question "What is your travel superpower?" Anyone who's been travelling for a while knows what they're good at and what they're terrible at, maybe you're great at packing and … Continue reading Travel: Superpowers Vs Kryptonite

So instead of getting bogged down in blankets, Ugg boots, books and miserable rainy days, start planning. Imagine the sun sparkling off the crystal clear blue water, the warmth of that white sandy beach and an … Continue reading Top 10 Winter Escapes
