INTERNATIONAL POLAR BEAR DAY

Who knew that 27th February was International Polar Bear Day? I certainly didn’t, but it gave me an opportunity to reflect upon one the best trips I have ever been on. A couple of years ago I was invited on a trip to Churchill, see the Polar Bears on the Tundra. After checking Google Maps […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Room

“From the four walls that currently surround you to the infinite potential of space, this week we’d like you to show us your take on room, rooms, or a room.” Not one for being obvious, I didn’t want to fill this challenge with lots of photos of great hotel rooms. Instead I chose a few of […]

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: SELFIE

The word Selfie finally makes into the Oxford Dictionary in 2013 – 21 years after I invented it! In 1992 I embarked on my first ever solo travel adventure. While friends were starting to settle down, I was shaking it up. While friends were buying bricks and mortar, I was buying trips and memories. While […]
