Serenity at the waterhole

Travel thoughts – Care, share and respect!

Every journey is a voyage of discovery – Clare Boylan The adventure is over. We are home and have been for a while now. The clothes that reeked of smoke from the campfire and physical exertion are clean again, my husband’s beard has been removed, the car has been emptied and bags lie around in anticipation of being put away…until the…

Travel, adventure, Tasmania, cycling, history

Tour de Tassie – Maria Island 

What do two intrepid travellers decide to do while on a trip to Tasmania? Where do I start!!? Car packed with bikes, helmets, walking boots, cameras, warm clothes, food, sleeping bags, national park pass….tick ✔️ No real plans or destinations in mind just a sense of freedom to go where we feel like visiting. It’s a nice way to travel…

Wordless Wednesday – 17 May 2017

Do you know where this beach is?  Leave me a comment to tell me know where you think it is. (I’ve given you a clue!) Debbie 🙂…

Wordless Wednesday – 10 May 2017

It’s Wordless Wednesday! Enjoy your Wednesday – wherever you are in the world.  This lovely pic is home for me 🙂 This view was taken late in the afternoon as the locals were starting to light their evening fires – as evidenced by the smoke haze.  Autumn colour abounds – happy days! Debbie 🙂 PS. You can also find Deb’s World in these places: Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, StumbleUpon, G+, Facebook and…

Danger sign for horses and wombats

It’s a dangerous world out there! – Weekly Photo Challenge

Danger! Look out! This week’s challenge is about the unexpected thrill of danger.  This week, share a photo that says Danger! to you. I love this sign, which I smile at every time I pass by.  It is an Australian road warning sign, alerting drivers to be aware of animals on the road. But what I see is a little dancing horse…

Wordless Wednesday – 3 May 2017

It’s Wordless Wednesday! Enjoy your Wednesday – wherever you are in the world. The seasonal differences within our huge country never cease to amaze me.  Just a week ago I was up north in Brisbane in Qld where autumn was not evident at all.  It was a pleasant 25 degrees during the day and no autumnal colours were on show. I returned home…

Plane, flying

Wordless Wednesday – 26 April 2017

Wordless Wednesday! I’m leaving on a jet plane…. Enjoy your Wednesday – wherever you are in the world. I can’t help but think of a swimming pool with lane ropes when I see this pic – and the plane is definitely not keeping within its lane! Debbie 🙂 PS.

Wordless Wednesday – 12 April 2017

Wordless Wednesday! Sunrise from the 7th floor Enjoy your Wednesday – wherever you are in the world. Just out of interest I’d love to know where you are in the world, (not in a stalker kind of way!). Leave me a quick general location in the comments below if you’d like to 😊. Debbie 🙂 PS. Feel free to join me on…

Wordless Wednesday – 5 April 2017

Wordless Wednesday! This week I am sharing photos taken by my husband.  He took these photos on his last official training walk before he embarks on his 7th trek across the Kokoda Track in Papua New Guinea.  He is one of the 6 leaders taking 12 local high school students and they have been training for months for this trek.  He…

Uluru-Kata Tjuta National park

Beautifully dense

Dense is the prompt for this week’s photo challenge.  Dense can mean many things and I am immediately drawn to think of texture, solid shapes and heaviness. So I have gone with the meaning of dense as ‘closely compacted in substance’ and am sharing some photos of some very special rocks from a visit to Australia’s Red Centre and Uluru. If…

Wordless Wednesday – 29 March 2017

Wordless Wednesday! Start with crabapples and end with crabapple (and cinnamon) jelly! I will admit to cutting up some of these crabapples but not to producing this magnificent coloured jam despite my name on the jar!  That honour goes to my friend Cathy who is a domestic goddess. Enjoy your Wednesday whatever you have planned! Debbie 🙂 PS. Feel free to…
