NZ2012 - 0551This is me, and my wife, on our Honeymoon to New Zealand, more photos of which you can find here.

Over the last few years, I have decided that I love to travel. If I am not actually doing it, I am usually doing something with pictures I have taken, a photobook, a website etc.

There is only one thing stopping me travelling more….money. If anyone has any (serious) tips on how to travel on a budget, then I’m all ears!!

We have been to, New York, New Zealand, Barcelona, Malaysia, Thailand, Rome, Jersey, Cape Verde, Dublin….perhaps more, but the destinations escape me at the moment.

If you decide to follow this Blog, then I apologise in advance for engulfing you with holidays of the past. Please stay tuned, you may like the posts!!

A quick thank you for stopping by. I am really keen to extend my Blogging tentacles out into the ocean of Blogs, so please like or follow my posts, and I promise to check yours out in return!!

In the meantime, I am going to be adding to this site, for future and past holidays, please enjoy, and come back soon!!

Places we have visited together, a lot condensed around the UK, as this is where we live!!
