Goa – ‘Chasing Sunsets’

We leapt on sleeper trains for nearly twenty four hours, overnight buses with double beds and shady curtains and into the back of retro rickshaws; all to explore the beaches on the west of India.  The love of adventure keeps the soul young and becoming engulfed by the diversity in this country, is what sets…



Hampi – ‘Hampi Days!’

It’s a dreamy landscape.  It’s a concoction of gigantic boulders, banana plantations, ancient temples and rice paddy fields.  There’s the Tungabhadra River where crocodiles bathe, on one side a bazaar and the other home to sleepy cafes and guesthouses.  It’s a mystical place where Hindu temples of worship have a tropical backdrop with a Sub-Saharan…

Most coconut trees are vertical, ascending…

As you watch the sunrise from the raised position of one of the…



Ngwe Saung – ‘Beach Life’

Deep blue in colour and vast is the ocean to my left.  Where the horizon ends and sky begins there’s a palette mixture of colours, orange melts into purple and the semi circle of the setting sun is about to get eaten by the sea.  To my right, there is the sand of the beach…



Yangon – ‘Back in the East’

Just from pronouncing the word Yangon, I felt it was a place that I wanted to visit.  Yangon; there’s a twang to it that subtly implies that it will provide an authentic venture into South East Asian culture.  Myanmar is a country that has yet to overly succumb to the western influence of tourism and…
