Stylised travel logo

I enjoy travelling (well, most of the time!), and photography. These pages are somewhat in the form of lengthy travel diary of selected journeys. I hope you can enjoy them as much as I did.

Adelaide by road
in the 1964 May school holidays. See below for this journey repeated 50 years on.

Western New South Wales and South Australia
from February 1975, when cameras used film. And Kodachrome ruled!

Italy, Spain and Ireland in 2002
for the canonisation of (now) Saint Josemaria, pilgrimage and holiday, respectively.

Alaska 2003
A very enjoyable, and once-in-a-lifetime journey from Seattle to Anchorage, aboard the 42 metre (137 foot) high speed catamaran The Klondike Express.

2004 Vikings, Danes and All That Jazz
was my first KPLU (now KNKX ) Travel Club tour to Denmark and Norway. And it wasn't my last trip either!
