Upon the crest of a wave I see
hidden memories held within.
New ones created, from every bough
on every ship, that travels bound for some new pasture.
Such hope and yet such loss,
is the ocean's promise.
It's force men think can be tamed.

The City that never sleeps. Quite literally. I don't think I've ever jam-packed so much into such a small time frame as we did in NYC. A first time for myself and my travelling companions, there is so much to see for a place that I actually found quite small in retrospect.

For the last eight months, the idea of this adventure had become almost an obsession, with researching, planning and preparing taking up most of my spare time. The departure day felt as if it was never getting any closer until I finally stepped off the plane to a weird sense of familiarity. It was the first time I'd set foot in Iceland but I couldn't shake the feeling that this place was somewhere I could quite happily never leave...Read More

Planning an adventure always sounds full of excitement, a daring-do attitude and just a hint of spontaneity. However, planning a trip into the inhospitable reaches of Namibia puts one on the edge of one's seat. We had avoided dwelling upon the strong probability of getting deeply and irretrievably stuck in the fine, red sands of the Namib desert, that stretches for 81,000 km, or of running out of water in probably the oldest and most deceptive deserts in the world...Read More

The more often we see the things around us - even the beautiful and wonderful things - the more they become invisible to us.
