Australian history is…

Australian history is almost always picturesque; indeed, it is also so curious and strange, that it is itself the chiefest novelty the country has to offer and so it pushes the other novelties into second and third place. Read more…

The road

A metaphor often used to represent the path taken in life, whether smooth or rough, long or short.

In mid April 2012 I reversed out of my parents driveway. My car packed. My mind calm. My hopes and dreams as awake as ever. With my destination simply somewhere west of me. For the second time in my life the metaphorical road, and its friend… literal, sat side by side, hand in hand.

Steve Fisher, the feature of the above film, has been nominated for National Geographic Adventurer of the year. Help him out by voting for him here.

This movie recently won top prize at the X-Dance Adventure Sports Film Festival. I think it may be the first kayaking film of its kind to do so. Congrats to the crazy team at Fish Munga.

Having it back in the fore thoughts of my mind and re-living my recent leather tramping adventures through it’s pattern (as evident in the below mentioned must see website), yet also eclectic filled streets thanks to all my photos, is something I will never complain about. So, when I came across a great New York focused blog during this past week I instantly bookmarked it, and I have been meaning to make some time ever since to have a closer look, which I did first thing this morning.
