I love getting high!
Never one to suffer from vertigo, I love being high….whether it be on top of a mountain after trekking for a few days, or from the Observation Deck of a skyscraper where the effort was no more strenuous than pushing the elevator button. I have always enjoyed sweeping views, particularly vistas from being “On Top” of things.

I thought of all the big things in Australia like the Great Barrier Reef, the Great Ocean Road, the Great Australian Bite and thought they are big, they’re just great. I also thought of the movie starring Tom Hanks but realised … Continue reading
Weekly Photo Challenge: Solitary
So many solitary moments to choose from, so I didn’t choose! I’ve included them all after a bit of culling. I found I could make anything fit the solitary theme if you put it into context.
The Dont Forget Travel Group is taking part in the Weekly Photo Challenge, but we’re adding an extra twist as we’re going to try and adapt the weekly theme into being “travel related” somehow! This week’s theme is: SOLITARY.
For an explanation of why I believe these pictures fit the theme Solitary, just click on the pictures below. #postaday

Kili Colour.Passing through a banana market on the way to our starting point of the Mt Kilimanjaro climb
Not quite the guides I was expecting!
First night camp not so much fun with the rain…everthing, including us was wet
Dont think I would win any fashion awards in Climbers Monthly
Second night camp was frozen…left some clothes outside and they were frozen stiff – rookie mistake
Still amazes me how impressive the porters are
it really is quite desolate on the middle plains
My favorite photo of the whole trek. We arrived in the dark but woke up to realise that we were above the cloud line. It was an amazing site.
The unusual, almost spooky-like follage on the lower plains
The end of the trip
Reached the volcano rim at Gilman’s Point before being stricken with altitude sickness
Trying to look happy and convince the guides that I am well enough to climb the next 200m to the summit
It really is a spectacular view from the top
