  • Thailand in the off-season is a beautiful place to be. Ko Phangan is rarely quiet or calm, but there was no one at our beach-resort on the north of the island and these beautiful orchids were in full bloom. It was the most leisurely time I’ve had in all of southeast Asia.

  • This photo was taken from the battlements of the Blarney Castle in Blarney, Ireland (about 8km from Cork). I remember the day vividly – gorgeous blue skies, and an hilarious old dude who “helped me” kiss the Blarney stone (you need to lay down on your back over the edge of the battlements in order to kiss the stone – I actually did need help, […]

  • This picture was taken in August 2011 on my last day of teaching at the Choongsung English School in South Korea. I’m with 6 year-old Yena, one of the precious 14 children I had the pleasure of having in my kindergarten class this year (and also one of my young hockey gurus! ;) ) I miss the little rascal!

  • Over centuries, people have carefully built terraces on the rugged, steep landscape right up to the cliffs that overlook the sea. Cinque Terre consists of 5 tiny villages on the northwest coast of Italy. Part of the charm is the lack of visible corporate development, and though this area was swarming with tourists, it was by far one of my favourite places in all of […]

  • Just down from Kuta Beach, Bali. One of the last sunsets of 2009, I love the colours dancing off the water behind the boats. The fire on the beach was built by a local as his friends gathered near the hut to the left for some barbeque and drinks.

  • Exploring southwestern Ireland by bike, the Ring of Kerry (which starts in Killarney and ends in Killorglin) was one of the reasons I fell in love with this country. We took the signposted Ring of Kerry cycling path which uses older quieter roads whenever possible. :)
