This time last week I was journeying through the Sumatran jungle in West Indonesia, in search of Maurice and Ceaser to talk official ape treaties. Went well. Head over to my blog to see some more snaps! 🐵🌿
To reach Mount Bromo and its famous volcanic crater, you must first cross what is known as the Sea Of Sands. A vast open plain, with characters like this speeding past you on motorbikes leaving huge trails of golden dust in the air. Mad Max tings.
We’ve talked for hours. We’ve broken bread. We’ve shook hands. Kissed and hugged. We’ve shared sunsets and sunrises. And adventures. We’ve made fires. Danced together. We’ve shared stories and sometimes tears. Day long train journeys. We’ve built schools. Shared bikes. Shared roofs. Traded hopes and fears. We’ve laughed, and played. We’ve harvested. We’ve taught. We’ve guided. We’ve learnt. - These portraits serve as a memoir to all relationships I’ve been able to build with the remarkable locals in Asia. Forever grateful to have had the opportunity to do so. Prayers for Lombok. 🤝🌏
Spent my morning inside a volcano. Wbu? 🔥🌋
A couple earthquakes, a few death roads, and a gazillion wooden steps later, we made it to paradise. 🦖🐠
Sunset swims around the Whitsunday Islands; one of a million amazing memories from the last nine months that Australia has given me. Time for the next stop. Love you Strayaaaaa, see you in a few years for a shoey!
Three years ago, when I first began planning this trip, I found myself reading a lot about this reef in West Australia. A place where you could swim with humpbacks, whale sharks, dolphins, turtles, rays and more. Was a dream to tick this one off the list! 🐋🌏
Going solo again, after a few unreal weeks driving an old banger around NT with my band of bootleg rascals. 🏖🚗
