Throwback Thursday: This is from my first trip to Ireland back in 2009. I was over there for my brothers wedding, and we did some sightseeing after that was over with. This is shop on the grounds of Bunratty Castle in Co. Clare. We spent the day here, and went to the medieval banquet that evening which was a lot of fun. I look loving back at this time. I feel in love with Ireland as well, and I’ve been back several times since :) . . . . #bunrattycastle #clare #coclare #ireland #bw #shop #old #emeraldisle #family #old #travel #tourist #fun #explore #adventure #wanderlust #wander #lost #wanderingaussie #likealocal #runaway #vacation #iger #holiday #traveller #europe #history

I know I know. I’ve posted many of these before. But the different colours as I was laying there fascinated me. It’s one of those rare man made places that I totally love, and it’s worth checking out if you find yourself in Singapore. . . . . #supertreegrove #singapore #gardensbythebay #park #supertree #lights #sky #night #pretty #colors #colours #chill #travel #tourist #fun #explore #adventure #wanderlust #wander #lost #wanderingaussie #likealocal #runaway #vacation #iger #holiday #traveller #hot #humid #steamy

There is more to this national trust site than the rope bridge. You get amazingly dramatic coast line views. The winter light just adds to the feeling of the place. It was a pretty cold day, but it was so totally worth it. . . . . #carrickarede #carrickarederopebridge #northernireland #ireland #ocean #cliffs #light #winter #stunning #hike #explore #europe #travel #tourist #fun #explore #adventure #wanderlust #wander #lost #wanderingaussie #likealocal #runaway #vacation #iger #holiday #traveller

Seeing I’m back where I grew up this weekend, and visiting the parents. Here is a cloudy day down at Belmore Basin. I love the change in colour of the water as a reflection of the clouds, and sky. I like the dramatic view of the clouds, and this was just moments away from it starting to rain, and sending me scuttling for cover. I grew up in the gong, and as much I’m very much a Sydneysider now days through and through, it’s always nice to get back where I came from. Even though I have an Australian passport, and call Australia home, I class myself a global citizen, and explore the world. . . . . #wollongong #illawarra #clouds #belmorebasin #wollongongharbour #southcoast #nsw #australia #ocean #water #sky #skyporn #travel #tourist #fun #explore #adventure #wanderlust #wander #lost #wanderingaussie #likealocal #runaway #vacation #iger #holiday #traveller #globalcitizen #home #local

One of the many bridges that cross the Singapore River. Typical of the place it’s trimmed in neon lights and kinda looks cool as a consequence. It was a really humid evening and I walked the 80 minutes from my hotel to Supertree Grove and I loved every minute of it :)

Throwback Thursday. Every time I see a photo I took from this amazing journey I get tingles up and down my spine. The incredible plains of the Serengetti National Park in Tanzania completely blew my mind. This first trip to East Africa changed me forever. It grabbed at my heart in ways I never knew possible. It’s challenging, the people are incredible, the scenery and animals when I was there for real, was so much more intense than I ever dreamed. You couldn’t wipe the grin off my face for months. And now just 1 minute of looking through the photos, and the grin is back. I’ve been back to Africa a second time, and did more in the southern end, but I want to go back and do more. Much more. . . . #africa #eastafrica #serengetti #serengettinationalpark #tanzania #tbt #throwbackthursday #sunset #clouds #dust #contrasts #safari #animals #intrepidtravel #travel #tourist #fun #explore #adventure #wanderlust #wander #lost #wanderingaussie #likealocal #runaway #vacation #iger #holiday #traveller

The Irish flag flys in the courtyard of Kilmainham Gaol. This is the location where the leaders of the 1916 Easter Rising were executed for there role. It’s a sombre space, and makes your think of how as human beings we seem to go to violence first. I’ve traveled a lot around the world, and fights for independence against imperial rulers seem always steeped in violence, and cruel oppression. . . . . #kilmainham #kilmainhamgaol #dublin #history #irish #europe #1916easterrising #1916rising #travel #tourist #fun #explore #adventure #wanderlust #wander #lost #wanderingaussie #likealocal #runaway #vacation #iger #holiday #traveller #independance #tricolour #vioence #imperialism #imperialrule #conflict

I’m not going to pretend for one second that I will ever truly understand the conflict that tore this city apart. It’s complicated, and beyond my every day comprehension. The art work, and murals however are incredible. And worth your time to have a look at, and get a local perspective on this provocative time in Irelands history. . . . . #northernireland #belfast #ireland #murals #conflict #artwork #getsbetter #usvsthem #orange #ira #loyalists #history #travel #tourist #fun #explore #adventure #wanderlust #wander #lost #wanderingaussie #likealocal #runaway #vacation #iger #holiday #traveller

Turimetta Beach is amazing for sunrise shots. It’s a beautiful beach well known to the locals on the Northern Beaches of Sydney. I’ve been here a few times over the years, and it’s a stunning place. This was taken in winter a number of years ago. . . . . #sunrise #turimetta #turimettabeach #australia #sydney #sun #skyporn #clouds #beach #ocean #water #sea #travel #tourist #fun #explore #adventure #wanderlust #wander #lost #wanderingaussie #likealocal #runaway #vacation #iger #holiday #traveller #orange

I’m away for the weekend and this is a long exposure shot from my hotel balcony looking over Treasury Gardens. I’m having a chilled and relaxing evening.
