Sometimes things don’t go according to plan so you just go with the flow, ironically I accidentally stumbled upon a lighthouse. While standing at the train station i asked a random how to get to a location, in conversation he mentioned Watsons Bay, I quickly googled it and changed my direction once I saw how pretty it was, a couple of stops to Circular Quay, a short and pleasant fairy ride over to Watsons Bay, I followed the South Head Heritage trail and there it was, A lighthouse that looked like it belonged in a fairytale. A serene few hours exploring, watching waves, smiling, enjoying the winter sunshine, short chats along the way. As I leaned close to the edge still within safety a lady asked me a question…I replied with “I wasn’t meant to be here today”, she said ‘clearly you were by the smile on your face’. I guess I was…
I even stumbled on a nudist beach oops 🙂
Salar De Uyuni a rather large mirror I have ever seen, incredible reflections on the salt flats, apparently the largest in the world, Heck of a journey to get here although well worth the trip. The Perfect way to end the day of a 3 day tours, A magical sunset. A 3 day tour is approximately 100 USD, including accommodation, some meals, sharing with 6 people in a 4wd, nothing flash although a great way to get around on a budget.

Los Cuernos, The Horns of Patagonia.
Just before dawn I set out on my first trek, fresh, windy although not freezing or maybe I had just the right about of layers on. It was so windy at times I had to stop and sit, the wind picking up water from the near by lake was like little stings to my face, how good it is to be alive and a witness to this magical place. How wonderful it was to have the track all to myself, the clouds were low and quit thick and most of the times hidden…I still felt the magic, singing fav tunes to myself along the way…….

Ollantaytambo, Peru, The last Fortress of The Incas. Personal Journey
At the far end of the Sacred Valley of the Incas hides a precious gem only a few tourists to Peru have on their radar including myself until I was given the heads up. Nice to just go with the flow….
The ancient Inca fortress was built around the middle of the 15th century and is the second most well-preserved ruin in Peru. Ollantaytambo is separated into 4 distinct areas: The ancient town, the temple hill, the ceremonial area and the agricultural sector. While there are other things to do in Ollantaytambo, I opted for an easier day, after a walk up to the top, chilling and enjoying the view, a nice cold drink at a local cafe and watched daily life and entertaining ordinary moments. It was nice to slow down the last week of my South America journey.

Wow direct flights to Santiago, Chile!!!!
Cerro Santa Lucia.
An early morning walk, the streets were quiet and my journey had begun……………. Well worth climb to the top, the views were spectacular, a lovely introduction to the city of Santiago and a little training for treks to follow.
Spectacular Panoramic View of Santiago
Walk up for about 45 minutes or take the cable cart to the top, a great introduction to Santiago city, a bit foggy so the Andes were not as clear as I would have liked, i heard after the rain is the best time for better visibility, next time maybe?? FYI
Llama at first site.
What a great site after coming down the hill, super soft, super cute, the owner was saying it’s ok squeeze him tight, all i could hear in my mind was my eldest daughter saying, “careful he might spit on you”, nope he was just as sweet as can be, a great way to start my travels through South America.
Out on a whale watching cruise yesterday off Phillip Island, unfortunately we didn’t spot any, lots of playful dolphins and seals, There were lots of swells, rain and even hail stones at one point which made it all the more exciting. I love the way the waves dance and create quick moments of natures art. Victoria, Australia. You can purchase this image here.
What can one say about Bhutan, it’s peaceful, quiet, stunning landscape, the light breeze and the sound of prayer flags, I laid down as close to the edge, listen to the sounds and watched those flags, dance in the wind. No other sounds, it was magical. You can purchase this image here and many others.
It’s always the people I meet along the way that make me more grateful travelling and learning about culture and lifestyle .
One of the things i find interesting is that neighbouring countries such as Bhutan, it’s illegal to smoke, woman are frowned upon in India and some do all the smoking. This gorgeous woman seemed to enjoy her chill time and was happy to share, paper, bamboo? who knows. Personal Journey
A great morning out today with the last of the stunning colours at Tieve Tara Gardens, Victoria, a little chilly but well worth a day in nature. Here’s my spin on it.

My last day in Bhutan, back to Paro a great way to finish off 5 days of travel photography, this was taken from my hotel room on the night before heading back to India. Rinpung Dzong
Paro Dzong ranks as a high point of Bhutanese architecture. The massive buttressed walls that tower over the town are visible throughout the valley. It was formerly the meeting hall for the National Assembly and now, like most dzongs, houses both the monastic body and district government offices, including the local courts. Most of the chapels are closed to tourists but it’s worth a visit for its stunning architecture and views. Lonely Planet
