* Hot air balloon ride over Cappadocia, Turkey

* Sunsets at Santorini (Greece), Lake Bohinj (Slovenia) and Goreme (Turkey)

* Rescuing a baby's milk bottle from a crocodile-infested lake in Australia's Kakadu National Park

* Sleeping under the stars of India's Great Thar Desert...and getting thrown off a camel enroute!

* Last post ceremony at Menin Gate, Ypres

* Making it to the top of Mt Kilimanjaro

* Sitting in a pool at the top of Victoria Falls

* First overseas TB meetup in the Philippines!

* Machu Picchu - simply the most magnificent ruin I have ever seen

* More or less the whole of my Mongolian trip, but especially Naadam Festival, Gobi Desert and North Korean restaurant in Ulaanbaatar!
Profile
Joined in 2008, but life got in the way of travelling for a while and I only started being a regular on here in the latter half of 2013!

I'm fortunate enough to be fairly well traveled, having set foot in every continent bar Antarctica. I aim to travel overseas at least twice a year, and am gradually working my way down the old bucket list...
