Snapshot – Elephant Sands

Those who have read my posts from last year will have picked up that I have an affinity for Africa, particularly the Southern African countries like South Africa, Namibia and Botswana. In fact, I shall be returning again to South Africa in a few months time with my friend Geraint for a most epic safari (feel free to hit the link & check out his blog!). But today’s A-Z Challenge post is taking us back to Botswana, specifically to the north-eastern section of the country and a safari lodge called Elephant Sands. I was fortunate enough to spend one night there in 2013 and it was, in a word, memorable. Continue reading “Snapshot – Elephant Sands”

Snapshot – Dubai

Given the amount of travel I’ve been fortunate enough to do, you would think that I would have visited Dubai before. Possibly even numerous times as a stopover on the way to someplace. The reality of living in Australia is that it’s a long flight to get pretty much anywhere, so stopovers are a fact of life. My usual choice is Singapore but on my trip to Europe last year, I thought it was high time I made my debut visit to Dubai. I’ll be totally honest, I don’t do much research into the places I visit. If it wasn’t something already covered during my education, or seen on some travel documentary, then I’m pretty much just going to go by word of mouth about what to do in a particular place. And I went into Dubai fairly blind on that point.  Continue reading “Snapshot – Dubai”

Snapshot – Cesky Krumlov

I have a confession to make. I’ve been looking forward to writing this post. It’s always hard to pick favourites from the places your travels have taken you, it feels disloyal to all the other wonderful places that have crossed your path. But Cesky Krumlov is a favourite of mine, there’s no denying it, I was captivated by its charm and ease. Continue reading “Snapshot – Cesky Krumlov”

Snapshot – Berlin to Budapest

Okay, so I guess it’s obvious from that title that I was feeling very indecisive about which travel destination to pick for B in the A-Z Challenge. And that ultimately I just threw my hands in the air (like I just don’t care) and said I’ll do both. I’ve justified it to myself because the trip I took to Europe last year started in Berlin and finished in Budapest 🙂 For those interested my trip took me from Berlin in Germany, through Continue reading “Snapshot – Berlin to Budapest”

Snapshot – Auschwitz

So. Here am I. Back again to take on the April A-Z Challenge for a second year. I have pretty much been absent from this wonderful blogging community since last year’s challenge, and while I will explain that absence and what I’ve been up to at a later date, this post is all about the first day of the challenge and we are kicking it off with A … and a rather sombre A it is … Auschwitz.

In August last year I did some travelling around Europe on a G Adventures tour. Continue reading “Snapshot – Auschwitz”
