Bali and the Gili Islands

Snapshots from the “Island of the Gods” and its beautiful little neighbour. From the rice fields of Canggu to the vistas of the Bukit Penisula, Bali for me was an eccletic mix of landscapes, colours and culture. The monkey forest in Ubud was a blend of the serene and chaotic where you had to maintain a vigilant guard against mischievious little primates. Just getting to Ubud was testament to the constant surprises waiting around every corner of the island, as we found ourselves riding in the middle of a Hindu precession which we traversed for over a kilometre before seeing the...

Photo Competition

Runner up in Lonely Planet’s “Winter from your Window” photography competition   This photograph was captured from my balcony in Sihanoukville (Cambodia) one evening as a storm rolled across the coastline.

Settings that I was fortunate to have enhanced by foliage made vivid by the monsoon season rains and recent floods. A world of contrast from the more sombre recent history of the capital Phnom Penh and the harrowing events that shadowed Tuol Sleng (S-21) Prison and the ‘Killing Fields’ of...

The Gringo Trail

Having spent several weeks in Cusco my time in Peru was rapidly drawing to a close.  With still so much of this beautiful country left to explore I decided to hop on the tail end of the infamous “Gringo Trail” and embark on a reverse tour of its southern reaches. Beginning with the Peruvian gateway to Lake Titicaca, I eagerly set out from Puno to visit an intriguing culture with a uniquely sustainable way of life.  At almost 4000m above sea level on what was ambiguously known as the “highest navigable lake” in the world, was the home of a pre-Incan people referred to as...
