The Road from Queenstown to Glenorchy

Is this the most beautiful drive in the world? I wouldn’t argue if you thought so! We spent about an hour at this special spot on the road between Queenstown and Glenorchy watching the colours change as soft, puffy clouds floated over Lake Wakatipu. Naturally I took way too many photos and had all kinds of problems choosing the one I liked best, haha classic first world problems!

Drifting Through the Night

I make lots of little mistakes on my travels but in a way I kind of like it! A lot of my favourite moments happen by accident so I’ve learned to embrace an element of randomness. Which brings me here, to the side of a winding road somewhere in the Faroes. I’m on an island named Vagar, it’s getting late and my destination is further away than I thought, but man, it’s just awesome out here!

On the Way to Primrose Hill

I was on my way to Primrose Hill in London to watch the sunset but it was taking longer than expected. I paused briefly to take this photo of a quiet street on the way and it turned out being better than the actual photos from Primrose Hill. I guess life really is all about the journey rather than the destination. 🙂

Turkish De-lights

This bridge in downtown Istanbul was a good spot to get some light trails of the traffic with cars, trains, buses and motorbikes whizzing by in every direction.

Walking around Lake Towada

The other day I mentioned that my hike along the Oirase River to Lake Towada was longer than expected, well here’s the full story. The walk to Lake Towada was around 20km which was what I expected, the only problem was that I was actually staying on the OTHER side of it, some 12km away! Haha I really need to plan these things better! This was quite deflating at the time, it was already late and there wasn’t exactly any taxis around.

As grueling as this ‘bonus’ section was, it was quite beautiful and gave me the chance to take some more photos. I arrived at my hotel around 7.45pm to find that dinner was over and all restaurants in the area were already closed, wow didn’t see that one coming! I devoured my final Choco-Pie and went to bed hungry, so very very hungry.

The Sun Worshipper

This scene really caught my eye as I was walking out of the botanic gardens in Melbourne. I like the way the path leads towards the sun and it has a certain Aztec sun worshipping feel to it, which is kind of a weird thing to say now that I think about it. 🙂

Tuscan Sunshine in Florence

Florence lived up to its billing of sun, culture, landscapes and art with a flourish. There were regal gardens, colorful bridges, nice restaurants, street artists, classical architecture and famous statues such as Michelangelo’s David. Overall it was a well spent few days soaking up the Tuscan sunshine in Italy.

Death Valley, Check Engine

We’re entering Death Valley, one of the most inhospitable places on the planet, and the Ram is not impressed. He’s flashing every warning light at his disposal, including some we didn’t even know existed.
