The one when I survived Huayna Picchu

Written by David/Photos by Michelle & David

For most of us the Inca Trail ends in Machu Picchu with a well deserved rest. After 4 to 7 nights in the Andes wandering up and down through the cloud forest and impossible mountain passes, walking by and through a myriad of ancient Inca settlements, fortresses and agricultural terraces, any thought in your mind will surely involve a long hot shower and a good sleep in a proper bed. … Read More

Gorilla trekking in Rwanda, a Dream Come True

Written by Michelle/Photos by Michelle & David

Ever since I watched Gorillas in the Mist as a teenager I dreamt of going gorilla trekking. Coming face to face with the gorillas was something that fascinated me and filled me with anticipation. If someone told me that I could only ever go on one trip during my life I would without a doubt nominate gorilla trekking in Africa. While living in Australia I had researched trips to Africa … Read More

Have You Ever Been On A Trip Where Everything Goes Wrong?

Written by Michelle/Photos by Michelle & David

Have you ever had one of those trips where everything went wrong? Where one thing after another didn’t go to plan? For me it was my trip to Nepal and India in 2010, a truly disastrous trip I took when I was a solo traveller before meeting David, and unfortunately it tainted my memories of what was a one of a kind experience. I had been looking forward to visiting Nepal … Read More

What You Can Do Today to Protect your Blog Pictures

Written by David / pictures by David and Michelle (unless otherwise stated)

As bloggers, none of us like seeing our own pictures snatched and used somewhere else without our consent, that’s a fact. Unfortunately digital plagiarism happens nowadays. However, to some extent having your own photographs copied and shared on other sites is a good thing when you can keep the authorship.  In this post I’ll go over 10 tips I find useful to protect our blog pictures or at least to allow us to our benefit in … Read More

Here’s How We Visited the Mysterious Nazca Lines and How You Can too

Written by David/Photos by Michelle & David

I’ve always been quite a sceptic when it comes to interpreting what I see during my travels but I have to admit I failed to keep my cool when I saw the Nazca Lines for the first time. I consider myself a seasoned traveller and for some time I thought everything in the world was discovered and understood. After all, Mr. Google knows everything, right? Well, that was until we visited the … Read More

A sensational Summer day trip from Sydney

Who wants a Sensational Summer Day Trip from Sydney?

Written by Michelle/Photos by Michelle & David

I’ll be honest with you, in Summer it’s hard to go wrong with any beach area of Sydney though maybe I am biased since I am from here. You’ll find golden sands and crystal blue waters from Palm Beach in the north to the famous Manly and Bondi beaches within reach of the city centre and down to Cronulla in the south, ideal for a gorgeous Summer day trip from … Read More

How to Spend an Unforgettable Weekend in Paris

Written by David/Photos by Michelle & David

Let’s say you and your partner have one of those special occasions coming up, one of those occasions when you could end up sleeping on the couch for a month or two if you happen to miss it, you know what I mean, right? Let’s also say you want to surprise her/him in style and make it romantically unforgettable (maybe to get some extra points for when you actually miss, say, … Read More

Morocco, a country full of so many surprises

Written by Michelle/Photos by Michelle & David

Morocco will always be one of my favourite places that I have had the pleasure of visiting. I don’t know if it is because I went there with no expectations or that it was the first non-western country I visited and hearing the regular call to prayer (which I quickly grew accustomed to and enjoyed the familiarity of, well maybe not the one at dawn while I was sleeping) or … Read More

Pick of the Week: Underwater hide-and-seek

Written by David/Photos by Michelle & David

Every time we plan for a trip that will involve some beach time, we ask ourselves the very same question: “Are we going to dive there this time?” And the answer is always the same: “We totally will!” Since we got qualified as PADI divers in Thailand in 2013 (wonderful dives in Koh Tao by the way!) we cannot help fitting a dive or two in our travel schedule every time we … Read More

We have a confession to make…

Written by David/Photos by Michelle & David

Ok, let’s be straight open right here. This one is for all of us photographers out there. We know most of you carry at least one camera around all day (thanks a lot, smartphone!) and like to snap away here and there: To keep your memories, this is to send to that aunt who complains when she doesn’t hear from you for a day or two. For fun on social media, aka to increase your … Read More
