JETSETTER – ISSUE 1

WELCOME TO our first edition of Jetsetter.

Who knows! We hope you enjoy. Advertisements

GORILLAS IN THE MIST

The level of doubt increased as the eyes scanned upwards. Up…up…up…up. The Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, seemed just that, impenetrable. The rain had stopped, the humidity had taken a strangle-hold on the forest, and now it looked like it was smoking as the mist seeped out of the trees. It really was going to be gorillas […]

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: Letters

Put letters together to make words. Put words together to form sentences. Put sentences together to produce chapters. Put chapters together to tell stories. There is an order to letters and to keep the letters in order there is the alphabet. To bring each letter to life is a picture that represents that letter, either […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: On Top

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 […]

CATTLE BATTLE

“Who has the best Economy Class?” This a question we receive daily. It is also a question that is hard to answer because it is so subjective. Its time to go out on a limb and rank the Cattle Classes of Adelaide’s international airlines. The exception to this is the inclusion of Qantas, despite not flying […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Threshold

Weekly Photo Challenge: Threshold “Threshold: Any place or point of entering or beginning” At first I thought that this week’s photo challenge was too hard as no images immediately came to mind. Then it hit me that there has been to momentous occasions in the last 10 years that have been significant to me. I […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections

This week’s photo challenge is “Reflections”. It’s not surprising that all the reflections have one thing in common….liquid. Even the sunglasses photo was taken while sitting at a beachside tavern! The Don’t Forget Travel Group is taking part in the Weekly Photo Challenge with the added challenge of trying to make all photos travel related. #postaday

Weekly Photo Challenge: Illumination

I hate nigthtime photography. Nighttime photography gnerally consists of blurry selfie photos in bars. Actually that’s not true (not the bit about drunken selfies) but I really do like nigthtime photography, but the truth I’ve never felt I’ve been very good at it. My camera takes great day time photos but as soon as the sun sets […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Resolved

Ski fitness…aaaaaagggghhhh! My last trip to Canada, which was also my first to Canada, I visited the well-known ski village of Whistler. It was beautiful. Although winter had not set in there was snow on the top of Whistler mountain, but I kept imagining how beautiful it would be during the ski season. How right […]
