Pivot has been the word and action for many businesses during the Covid pandemic, including for freelancers who have had to adapt and look for opportunities outside of their usual fields. The lack of opportunity to travel within Australia, has been challenging but being open to any opportunity to use your skills is key.

I have a number of projects I’m working on at the moment which will hopefully come to fruition, but it’s always good to challenge yourself and try something new.

The Stuart Highway is an epic drive from one end of Australia to the other. From south to north it’s full of wow moments and surprising sights. Here are just a few.

Everything Natural on a Grand Scale

The differing landscapes take your breath away. The things you don’t see every day but are so grand in scale that you can’t help but be impressed.

Megafauna of Central Australia

6 Comments

The first of the fossils were discovered on a cattle station around 150 kilometres north east of Alice Springs in the 1950s and the process of extracting more is still continuing today.

A Life On Our Planet ~ David Attenborough

The book begins with a visit to the town of Pripyat in the Ukraine, a place of utter despair as Sir David Attenborough calls it, and when you read his description of what he is seeing and realise it was the site of the nuclear power plant ‘Chernobyl’, then it’s easy to understand why the bleakness. In 1986 when it exploded as a result of bad planning and human error, it left an environmental catastrophe that Sir David Attenborough draws a shocking comparison to our current unfolding environmental catastrophe, the decline of our planets biodiversity. It is a book of hope though too, explaining how if we act now, we can alter our greatest mistake.
