travel blog & photography

Welcome!

I have lived the dream of traveling the world with my wonderful husband and I have developed a huge collection of images.  The purpose of this site is to share with others my travel experiences - the good, the bad and the ugly!!  The world is an amazing place and maybe some of my pictures will help you to get inspired and go explore!!  My photography portfolio of portrait, wedding and commercial work can be found at www.onestopshot.co.nz 

Fear No Boundary!

There are many paths we can take in the world beside the conventional routes of career and family.  There are huge rewards to be gained by setting out to discover the world and to explore your own potential in the process.  While the majority of people are happy to follow the beaten path, at a certain point some realise that it is possible to make a positive difference during their lifetime by deviating from that path.  A sense of purpose is an amazing thing and it can yield unexpected rewards...  (Sue Fear - Fear No Boundary)

Twenty Years From Now...

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do.  So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbour - catch the trade winds in your sails.  Explore.  Dream.  Discover.  (Mark Twain)

Never Give Up

Never give up.  No matter what is going on, never give up.  Develop the heart.  Too much energy is spent developing the mind instead of the heart.  Be compassionate.  Not just to your friends, but to everyone.  Be compassionate.  Work for peace, in your heart and in the world.  Work for peace, and I say again, never give up.  No matter what is happening, no matter what is going on around you, never give up.  (H.H The XIV Dalai Lama)
