I spent a few gorgeous Spring days island hopping within the Galapagos Islands of Ecuador back in 2008. Live was perfect when I am within a pristine natural environment. Everything comes to life in spring!
Blue skies. Bright sunshine. Fresh air. Mating season. New born babies….
Here are a few photos I captured during a Blue-footed booby mating dance. Someone was getting all hot and heavy!! haha Continue reading
Spring is coming to the Northern Hemisphere!
Enjoy your Sunday after International Woman’s Day!!
My first interaction with a Cassowary was from a distance – we shared a sideways glance as I sat in the back of a Greyhound bus.
I had been traveling from Cairns to Melbourne with multiple stops in between. I had heard about a giant bird, much like an ostrich or an emu in appearance but the cassowary is much more colorful in comparison. However, it has a nasty temper and known for attacking people.

On October 18th, 2008 I signed up for one of the most exciting and relaxing adventure at that point in my life – Paragliding in Pokhara, Nepal. I literally jumped out of bed with excitement!!

Some of you might be rolling your eyes and thinking why would I describe paragliding as relaxing?? My answer: To each their own – for me, I love floating in the sky, breathing the fresh crisp air. But seriously, give it a go and find out for yourself!! Now I get to kick it up a notch with paragliding – move over, parasailing! haha Continue reading
