Adventures and Travel

I love an adventure and for some reason I always seem to  find one.

You can find all my travel and adventure posts here

2018 This was the year of our Odyssey – read all my posts here

A wonderful 3 month trip from Australia to England, Iceland, The Netherlands, Denmark, Germany, France, Scotland

2017 was a great year of travel for this newly retired couple!

We visited Tasmania in May, the beautiful Flinders Ranges in South Australia in August where we walked some of the way down the Frome River with Aboriginal guides and immersed ourselves in the Adnymathanha culture. It was amazing.

In October we travelled to Fiji for our daughter’s destination wedding and in November we went to New Zealand’s North island for three weeks. See the links below to read the relevant posts.


A great adventure in 2016 included cycling and touring around New Zealand’s South Island for two weeks.

Past adventures

A few years ago we went cycling and sailing in Croatia, visiting our daughter in UK and catching up with friends in Denmark and Sweden.

We’ve walked the Annapurna track in Nepal, the Kokoda Track in Papua New Guinea and cycled and barged from Paris to Bruges. We like being active on holidays – what can I say?

Blurb Books:

Once we return from our travels we like to make a coffee table book using our photos and diaries. They are a great way of showing our photos and telling our stories to people without the need of boring presentations and sitting at a computer for hours on end. Here are the links to some of my Blurb books.
