Travel Report: Burano Island, Italy.

January 2008. The pretty little Italian island of Burano sits in the northern Venetian Lagoon, just a forty-five minute boat ride from the city of Venice. Home to just two thousand residents, Burano is famous throughout Italy for its charming collection of multicoloured houses and lace production. In fact, this tiny little place often pops […]

Travel Report: Venice.

January 2008. It’s still a bit of a head scratcher for me when I think about how little I’ve seen of Italy. Somehow I never got round to sorting one of my signature, month-long adventures, but rest assured it’s definitely on the list. Equally baffling is that my only visit to the land of Michelangelo […]

Travel Report: Jaisalmer, India.

March 2004. If the urban sprawl of Jaipur had betrayed us with its misleading Pink City tagline, then we were more than compensated by the extraordinary Golden City of Jaisalmer, quite possibly my favourite post from those distant India travels. And it delivered on that aforementioned goldenness immediately on the first evening as we made […]

Travel Report: New Delhi.

March 2004. It’s easy to get excited all over again at the mere thought of my arrival in New Delhi over fifteen years ago. I was twenty five years old and at the beginning of my first bout of extended, independent travel. Not that I was actually solo, as I’d agreed to travel with a […]

Travel Report: Agra, India.

March 2004. After an intense week in India’s frenetic capital New Delhi, my travel mate Allan and I jumped on an equally hectic train to the city of Agra. Just about everything about India thus far had been nothing short of a relentless assault on the senses, including the seemingly simple process of boarding a train. […]

Travel Report: Kodanad Elephant Sanctuary – Kerala, India.

April 2004. Kodanad Elephant Sanctuary was one of Kerala’s most respected elephant training centres. Set in and around the Malayattoor Forest Range on the southern banks of The Periyar River, I came here at the tail end of my India travels in 2004 to meet, feed and wash Kodanad’s community of loveable elephants. April 2004. […]

Travel Report: Goa, India.

April 2004. When my travel mate Allan and I arrived in Goa we were determined to base ourselves as far away from the party zones as we could. Happily the peaceful Benaulim Beach in Goa’s drowsy north did just the trick. It really was the perfect base for napping, eating, swimming and napping some more […]

Travel Report: Udaipur, India.

March 2004. It damn near broke my heart when I went back to my photos from the Indian city of Udaipur. It’s an incredibly romantic place and I have magical memories from my time here wandering its crooked market streets. I can’t believe just how few photos I actually took, never mind the quality, among […]
