Itineraries – Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka. It’s a destination becoming more and more popular with tourists as the years go by. Many are considering it one of the hottest destinations on the planet, and it’s not hard to see why. It’s India but on Valium. It’s not as big, there aren’t as many people, and therefore it is definitely …

Paris Through My Lens – Part Two

Again we're looking at Paris as I saw it a couple of months back now, but obviously a completely different set of pictures. Again I look into the Musee D'Dorsay - and particular a couple of paintings by Mr Vincent Van Gogh (one will mean a bit to Doctor Who fans out there!). Then there's …

First Taste – Luang Prabang (Laos)

Ahhh beautiful Laos. Gentle Laos. Kind Laos. Of a similar size to neighbours Thailand and Vietnam, Laos has only a fraction of their populations at somewhere around 6.8 million people. This makes Laos a country with far more space per person. So it’s the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of …

The Colours of Waiotapu

The Waiotapu Thermal Springs is one of the most amazing places we saw in our short stay in New Zealand. Done on a short trip/tour from Rotorua, we took half a day to explore and walk around the springs. As for most of the attractions around but not actually in Rotorua, transport is a bit …
