Dear Passport…

We’ve been together for 10 years now and you need to be replaced.  But before I consign you to the bottom of the drawer, let’s take a journey through time and see where you have been…

The passport was replaced shortly before my trip to Australia / New Zealand at the end of 2014. I doubt that I shall visit as many countries in the next ten years as I have during this phase, but I hope there will be a few, after all there is nothing like visiting another country to get the inspiration flowing for a travel photographer.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. What a great idea for a blog post! Especially when you’ve done as much travelling as you have – great photos too. I too have less of a wanderlust than I’ve had in the past although you can never tell how long that will last.
