Photo Friday – Music Shop in Brussels

This week’s Photo Friday comes from Brussels, which I spent three days exploring last week and absolutely loved. All the historical sites and architecture were one thing – but even more fun to explore was the abundance of awesome shops and cool street art. This music shop near the Grand Place…

Photo Friday… Halong Bay Cruise

Halong Bay Cruise, ship, rope

Last week, I was lucky enough to try out two incredible cruises of Vietnam’s spectacular Halong Bay. This is one of the shots I had left over, which didn’t fit into my review posts, but I happen to really like it so I thought I’d use it for Photo Friday!

Photo Friday – Uyuni Train Cemetery

Uyuni Train Cemetery, Bolivia

Today’s Photo Friday comes from the city of Uyuni in Bolivia. On the outskirts of town, in this grey desert wasteland, is a huge train cemetery filled with rusting relics of Uyuni’s glory days as a transport hub.

Photo Friday – Fisherman in Guernsey

Fisherman, fly fishing, Guernsey

This week’s Photo Friday is a picture I took of a man fly fishing at a reservoir in Guernsey. I just liked the composition with his reflection in the water. We spent a fantastic week in Guernsey, Sam’s home, and this was taken on the last day as the sun was…

Photo Friday – Condor

Condor, La Paz Zoo, Bolivia

This week’s Photo Friday is one of the ugliest animals I’ve ever seen, the unfortunately-faced condor. We spotted loads of these birds, which look incredible in the air but less pleasant up close, at the cruz del condor in Colca Canyon, Peru. But this pretty birdie was in a large…
