Swimming with Sharks in the Bahamas

Swimming with Sharks in the Bahamas

on May 1, 2019

Every few years, a rare condition occurs in Australia where the Easter holidays and Anzac Day line up. This means that you can take 10 days of leave (vacation) and get a whopping 19 day holiday. The last time this happened was 2014, when we visited New Zealand (though we were amateurs back then and thought a 10 day vacation was LONG). In 2019 we headed for the...

Spectacular Sossusvlei

on Jun 20, 2018

We rarely go places more than once. Except when it comes to Mala Mala. Every time we visit, we know it won’t be the last. Living in Sydney, we’re a direct flight to Johannesburg (a 14 hour flight, but direct none the less). We’d planned the trip for June (beginning of their winter), and if we were going all the way to Africa, we may as well combine...

on Apr 15, 2018

Uganda is a landlocked country in East Africa, bordered by Kenya, South Sudan, the Congo, Rwanda, and Tanzania. It is about the size of Arizona in the United States, or Victoria in Australia. Our itinerary started and...

Swimming with Whales in Tonga (again)

Swimming with Whales in Tonga (again)

on Oct 5, 2017

Our trip to Tonga in 2016 put us in a serious post vacation funk. We were keen to go back, but organised tours are expensive, the dates aren’t flexible, and we’ve learned that the LAST thing we want is to be in the water with a bunch of other photographers. It is a remote part of the world, so a bit of research was required as the guide, skipper, and...

The Last Minute Trip to Africa

The Last Minute Trip to Africa

on Aug 16, 2017

The last minute trip to Africa… In July, I found myself with a few extra weeks of leave, and with a few hundred thousand frequent flyer miles about to expire, we decided to visit one of our favourite places on the planet – Southern Africa. With the move to Australia, and our newfound obsession with underwater photography, we had not been to Africa since...
