A busy month with a relook at Bali

I’ve been a bit overwhelmed with work the last month, some of which took me, figuratively that is, to Bali in Indonesia. I recently wrote a piece for Jetstar Asia on a scooter tour of the island that featured some of the island’s scenic and quieter corners. It was wonderful to think of the peaceful green fields, beautiful beaches and friendly people – a great respite from my busy life here at present in Brisbane.

Fortunately I had previously uploaded these images to the site so they’re all available at www.visitedplanet.com! These images encompass Ubud and Amed primarily and a few other stops on the North Coast. Enjoy.

Otago Central Rail Trail

Here is another selection of images from my recent trip to New Zealand. These are highlights from the Central Otago Rail Trail, a 160km, 4-day bike through the rugged plains and farmland of the region between Dunedin and Queenstown.

A journey along the Rail Trail is all about meeting people in the small towns, the history of the gold mining and farming that brought people here and incredible landscapes.
