I have driven past the suburb of Blacksmiths numerous times on my visits to Swansea and Newcastle. I've seen it on the sign as we head towards the bridge which spans the entrance to Lake Macquarie, but for some reason have never taken that turning.

In particular these photos of our food caught my eye... and made me smile! They were taken in the Bamboo tree restaurant in Luang Prabang and I… Continue reading Because I Love…
I'm a self-confessed technophobe. I try, but I don't really understand technology and am impatient if it doesn't work. I never have the most up to date kit...in fact, I probably don't even have the kit in the first place! The old days! When I first went travelling, digital cameras were in their infancy, the… Continue reading Travel and Technology
It was Bonfire Night in the UK on Monday, a day when everyone goes firework crazy! Our local fireworks display was held on the Saturday evening, and as usual it was pretty spectacular. I took the opportunity to test out the camera on my new mobile phone. I've opted for a Google Pixel 2 as… Continue reading Fabulous Fireworks!
