I love taking photos, and anyone who is friends with me on Facebook or Instagram will know that! I really enjoy looking back because, as the years pass, it can be hard to remember the million and one sights and emotions that are experienced when you travel. Here are my favorite travel shots I have taken – may they awaken the travel lust within you!

The beauty of this shot couldn’t distract us from the unsavory conditions these people were living in, Chiloe, CHILE
There was something about this little girl in Huanchaco, PERU, that made me want to photograph her. She had so much pinache for a toddler, and amongst the bustle of the wharf she just seemed to ooze character
Religious progression in Lima’s Plaza de Armas, PERU
This was taken in the famous cathedral in Lima’s Plaza de Armas. I had a really strange feeling the whole time I walked around – like I had to get out! This photos encapsulates exactly that. PERU
From that same church in Lima, PERU. I like the blurry, dark quality in the photo.
This is one of my favorite photos of all time. In Huanchaco, PERU, we stumbled upon a colorful parade full of school children. While they laughed and piroutted, this person was carrying on a normal conversation, decked out in finery, in front of a stunning backdrop.
Making dosas in Cochin, INDIA
After arguing with a local that these birds were not eagles but vultures, I snapped this. Orcha, INDIA
One of my strongest memories of India is of the trains. Nothing shows you the real India like travelling on trains, especially alongside friendly locals who like to wiggle your toes while you sleep on the bunks. This is also the best place to drink chai and eat! INDIA
Looking out over sprawling Mumbai, INDIA
I wonder what these children are up to now. This was taken after our presence in Rola, Gujarat, emptied an entire school!! INDIA
The holy city – Varanasi, INDIA.
A big walk around the spectacular village of Hampi, INDIA, brought this spectaular shot.

Annapurna Circuit, NEPAL
Honestly, I don’t remember too much from this day – the second to last of the ascent on the Annapurna Circuit, NEPAL. It was so intense and actually much more difficult than the final day walking up.
Walking to the nothernmost point of NEW ZEALAND, Cape Reinga
Having a rest, Cape Reina, NEW ZEALAND
My home town, Kerikeri NEW ZEALAND, also the site of NZ’s oldest buildings!
Cruising around the Hokianga and getting caught behind a cow traffic jam is a common occurence in rural NEW ZEALAND
