  • How To Photograph the Northern Lights

    November 5, 2014

    Seeing the green of the aurora dancing in the sky above the snowy wilderness is an extraordinary experience that you will never forget. However, if you’re like most travellers, you won’t be happy with just seeing it — you’ll want at least one or two photos so you can show people at home and make them…

  • Blinded by a Monkey

    October 28, 2014

    This is a guest post by my brother, Philip, who took the big step of quitting his job earlier this year so he could travel in Australia and Asia. Unfortunately, it seems the ‘uncoordinated’ (or at least, the ‘unlucky’) gene runs in the family… Vang Vieng, Laos is a lovely place. There are majestic mountains in…

    October 21, 2014

    The names of Hamilton Island and the Whitsundays are synonymous with tropical relaxation.

Unfortunately, there were…

  • Helicoptering Over Paradise With Hamilton Island Air

    October 8, 2014

    “Victor Tango Foxtrot to Hamilton Island.”  “Hamilton Island to Victor Tango Foxtrot. Weather is fine, 22 degrees…” The tinny voices of the pilot — who seemed so far away despite sitting right next to me — and the air traffic controller echoed in my ears. The deafening whirr of the helicopter’s blades provided a background…

  • Seaside Artistry at the Swell Sculpture Festival

    October 3, 2014

    Currumbin Beach is one of my favourite spots on the Gold Coast. It’s a bit further away from the craziness that is Surfer’s Paradise and it’s got an awesome, laid-back vibe to it. Plus, Elephant Rock at the beach’s northern end provides endless photographic opportunities no matter what time of day, so it’s a spot…
