Fear and Loathing in Brisvegas

This next installment has taken a little while.  In the now, I've had to find a new place to live and let's not even talk about my working life.  Let's just say I've had plenty of other things on my mind! This next post was always going to be a tricky one to put together … Continue reading Fear and Loathing in Brisvegas

Little Wategos

A Magical Mystery Tour

Following on from my last post; I would stay in Byron for a few days before heading onward to Brisbane in the search for work. After the first nights antics on the town, most of us packed our bags and headed onward in different directions.  This left me, another James and Lisa, on our own. … Continue reading A Magical Mystery Tour

Exploring around Hat Head

Waves of the East Coast

The time had finally come to leave Manly.  The past 3 months had taken their toll on my bank account (read empty!) and now I needed to find some work, otherwise I'd be heading home much earlier than originally planned. I realised Manly, especially as Summer was drawing to a close, wasn't the place I … Continue reading Waves of the East Coast

The Three Sisters

The Blue Mountains

Aside from seeing the New Year in at Sydney Harbour I only really had one other touristy desire whilst I was in the Sydney area.  That one thing was to visit The Blue Mountains. In typical fashion though, it turned out to be a bit of a last minute rush ... I delayed it right … Continue reading The Blue Mountains

Shells on Shelly Beach

The Manly Trap

I'll apologise now.  This post has an awful lot of photographs.  You see, The Manly Trap was sprung and it had well and truly caught me. Continuing on from the last post, I was feeling pretty low.  I didn't know what to do next.  'Pretty low' might be an understatement.  I missed my friends from … Continue reading The Manly Trap

Patong Beach Sunset

Land of Smiles

Here it is, the final of my posts from 2015's trip to Thailand.  Expect some posts from 2016's trip in a few months time, but I think it's likely I'm going to move off travelling for a while and post the results of the portrait shoots I've also been working on. Phuket ... Patong especially, … Continue reading Land of Smiles

Phang Nga Bay

Phang Nga Bay

The final trip of my week in Phuket was to head out to Phang Nga Bay.  The reason?  I was desperate to see James Bond Island.  It's one of the most popular tourist attractions in the area, but having been such a huge James Bond fan back in my early years I knew I had … Continue reading Phang Nga Bay

Maya Bay, Phi Phi Leh.

Islands In The Sun

The weirdest thing about writing this post from last years trip?  That in the past few weeks I've just enjoyed my second visit to Thailand! Prior to this my memories from 2015 were vivid and clear, but now they've become somewhat hazy.  This means I really need to focus on finishing the blog posts before my … Continue reading Islands In The Sun

Wat Rong Khun (The White Temple), Chiang Rai.

The White Temple & Golden Triangle

This was my last day in the North of Thailand and in advance I had decided that I'd participate in a full days trip which would take in The White Temple (Wat Rong Khun) in Chiang Rai and the Golden Triangle, which is where the countries of Thailand, Myanmar (Burma) and Laos all meet, split by … Continue reading The White Temple & Golden Triangle

Nawarat Bridge, Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai

Bangkok was a lot of fun, but after 4 nights I was ready to get moving.  Big cities are an adventure (Bangkok especially) but I'm a country boy at heart and already I needed some space.  Next up was a flight to Chiang Mai (for a ridiculously cheap price) where I was set to spend … Continue reading Chiang Mai
