A perfect summer night. Perfect for leaving. Perfect for staying. Perfect for seeing friends or making love or eating chocolate. A perfect night for dancing or dreaming or praying or playing. A perfect summer night. You can never have enough.
With travel, one is always taking a punt on the weather. And travelling around New Zealand, even moreso. This is my third trip to Milford Sound and it has been raining/overcast every single time. So it goes… Milford Sound is so breathtaking, it is hard to complain or feel short-changed in the least. But itContinue reading “Milford Sound Waterfall”
Yes, I have cruising on the brain again… the cheap details are coming out for early next year. Spotted one tonight on Holland America from Hong to Beijing, then Shanghai then Incheon and Jeju (the last two being in South Korea.) 14 nights… less than $100 per night per person… of course there will beContinue reading “A perfect day to sail”

Tolstoy and Dostoevsky are ultimately responsible for this photo. And the ones I will take in Moscow one day. HopefullyContinue reading “Travelling again and again”
I’ve finally processed the photos from Oslo. You can see them here. Everything about Oslo was wonderful, including the billowing clouds that loomed and rolled and threatened, but never opened up on us. After the one day, I am planning a trip of several weeks at least. I long to explore the fjords and pokeContinue reading “Oslo, Norway Photos”
