Finding the Fun Everyday

3 Comments

Now more than ever, finding the fun every day is a great way to relieve the worry, gloom and doom that we can’t escape sometimes.

Taking a slow holiday, like caravanning is an easy way to be in the present and take in the little things around you, making you grateful for where you live and what you have.

I find it’s easy to notice the funny and quirky aspects travelling this way and especially when you carry a camera, the weird and wonderful, the funny signs and things that just bring a smile to your face and a bit of fun in your day just seem to jump out at you. Here are some of the things that made us chuckle on our last road trip.

Karlu Karlu / Devils Marbles NT

5 Comments

This is one spot I can’t pass without staying at, whenever we travel in the Northern Territory. Karlu Karlu, also known as the Devils Marbles, has a very mysterious feel about it and never fails to leave you awestruck.

The way they were formed isn’t that mysterious though, the balancing marble like boulders are a result of a process over millions of years where solid granite rocks have eroded away due to the elements and left weathered granite boulders perched on rock platforms.

Mindl Beach Sunset Market – Darwin

2 Comments

No trip to Darwin in the dry season would be complete without an evening at the Mindl Beach Market.

These markets have now been running for more than 30 years and are held every Thursday and Sunday from the end of April through to the end of October every year. Thursday is usually the bigger night with Sunday being a smaller market and usually patronised more by the locals.

Great Reads on Holidays

One pastime I absolutely look forward to on holidays is getting stuck into reading. Something so important and yet it feels indulgent.

My holiday reading collection was a very eclectic assortment of books and magazines, mostly birthday and Christmas gifts from family who know me well. At first glance you would think that the books are extremely diverse in topic but uncannily I found a distinct common thread through all of them. See if you can pick the coincidental theme.

Photography Competition

I am just slightly obsessed with photography, in fact there’s not a day goes by that I don’t have my camera with me, just in case I see something remarkable, which to me is just about every day!

Every so often I still enter photography competitions mainly to dare myself to hold it with the best. I am by no means technically correct, my photography is more emotional as well as trial and error. If I see it and love it, or it makes me go wow then I just assume that someone else might feel that way too. There are lots of photos I’ve taken that I really love and to me tell a story of a time or place and sometimes I will enter a competition to push myself and dare to try. This is especially true if it’s a competition where the judges are professional photographers whose opinion or critique I value. The recognition and acknowledgement to me is huge, worth more than any prize offered even.
