Paddling wide river surrounded by cliffs and trees


Much of the content in the older travel blog was written by my fabulous ex Chris. This has potentially been a bit disjointed in places as I combined a blogging diary with travel informational pages. I will fix this if I get the time.

Image Resources

I took the majority of the photographs on our travels, albeit Chris took many as well.

Of the 1,000+ photos on the site, a couple have come from other sources and credit is given here as well as on the site proper if there was space. This is normally due to these covering areas that I simply haven't been to yet!

All photos should be in the Public Domain or a Creative Commons Licence.
