* 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

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 South America (hoping to rectify this in 2017). I aim to travel at least once a year, and am gradually working my way down the old bucket list...

You can read more about my travels at my website: Thanks :-)
