Bergen, Norway – June 2011.

I took these photos on one of my many visits to Bergen. I think this is the city where I’ve accidentally spent the most money due not realising how FUCKING EXPENSIVE everything is in Norway. On this day I didn’t spend any money.

Devil’s Island, French Guyana – April 2011.

I made a blog post last year with photos from Devil’s Island, French Guyana. But I visited again, and took more photos of more monkeys. Also, some men who were fishing by the swimming spot accidentally caught a sea turtle. These are a protected species, so there was a bit of panic until they managed to free it and let it swim away, hopefully unharmed. I got loads of video clips of monkeys and, strangely, ants. I hope to make a funny little edited movie out of it all one day, but for now I have better ideas to spend time on.

Wildlife and bananas in Costa Rica – January 2011.

Costa Rica is known for two things. Wildlife and bananas. When I went out on a taxi tour, I took a boat ride through a wildlife reserve, and visited a banana plantation. Check it out! Birds! Three Toed Sloths! Two Toed Sloths! There’s even a mummy sloth with a baby sloth! And the jesus lizards that run on water! I didn’t see a lizard do that though. And bananas.

I want to visit Costa Rica again, I know that.

Africa trip route map

I’m going on a five week vacation to Africa!

Normally it annoys me when people refer to a place or thing in Africa as simply “in Africa”. For example, where is Kilamanjaro? It’s actually in a specific country. People seem to forget that Africa even has countries.

However, for this trip I’ve had to say “5 weeks in Africa” because the alternatives sounds like I’m boasting, or are confusing. I could list all the countries, but it takes a long time, and I forget which ones. The trip also spans different geographic areas, so East Africa isn’t accurate, but then saying East and South Africa is confusing because South Africa is also a country. Eastern and Southern Africa is probably the best way to say it.

We fly to Nairobi and stay for a day, then cross into Tanzania for Serengheti safaris, then down to Dar es Salaam and catch a ferry to Zanzibar. After 4 days in Zanzibar, we head overland to Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe, with more safaris and interesting stops along the way.

After a few days at the Victoria Falls, we head down through Botswana to South Africa, and fly home from Johannesburg.

That should be pretty awesome!

Daily blogging will pause for a while, and switch to every-other-day blogging. I’ll be writing along the way, keeping a diary, etc, but I’m not going to spend any time or effort trying to blog along the way.

Travel photo blogging will continue, as all those posts are scheduled already. When I get home I’ll have loads more photos and stories to share here.


Willemstad, Curacao – January 2011.

Willemstad is the capital of Curacao, a small island near Venezuela. I stayed there for two nights before joining a ship in January of 2011. I wanted to take some photos of the sunset, and get a video of me juggling there too, so I took a taxi out of town. I got the photos and the videos, and then walked all the way back to the hotel. The harbour in the town has a floating pontoon bridge, which swings away when ships want to sail in. It’s a very pretty place, but feels a bit like a theme park.
