About

Like many bloggers, I love travelling and taking photos. I started taking photographs as soon as I started travelling, many years ago.

As a fair,  red head with curly hair and lots of freckles (and a tall one as well) you have some interesting experiences. In Nepal, I was hexed by an older lady, I’m sure she thought I was some sort of evil spirit. In Vietnam, the locals wanted to touch my skin as it was so fair and white. In Malaysia, whilst getting a head massage, the local hairdressers just didn’t know what to do with my hair.

This blog is an attempt to share some of the places I’ve visited over the years.

The more I travel, the more I want to see and more places I want to visit (and many places to go back to). It is such a big world out there, so much to see.

My favourites are the wild places, the big landscapes, and also the wildlife.
