What you’d rather be seeing – China

Our trip to Yunnan province in China was purely for a ten day cycling tour around the Mountains of Xishuangbanna on the border with Manyamar and Laos.  This area is renowned for its Pu’er tea in particular but also rubber plantations and the 12 ethnic minority groups.   There were eight of us on the […]

What you’d rather be seeing – Nepal

Our trip to Nepal originally focused on completing the Annapurna Circuit including Thorung La (5416m pass); however the major 7.8 earthquake occurred when we were in Manang just prior to the assent to the pass.  We turned back rather than risk the aftershocks creating an avalanche on the pass. We feel desperately for the Nepali […]

What you’d rather be seeing – Latin America

Six months travelling from Mexico, Cuba, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Uruguay and Argentina has resulted in the below 26 shots which we seem to keep coming back to. The feature image above (making 27)  captures our experience the most comprehensively.  The image was taken while submitting Volcano Purace in Colombia and reflects the amount of […]

What you’d rather be seeing – Valparaiso, Chile

We spent a wonderful four days over New Years in the Chilean party city of Valpo. Steve has already summed it up so well however it has been such a photogenic city that I wanted to put my favourites in its own “what you’d rather be seeing”. I hope you like a couple of them […]

What you’d rather be seeing – Northern Chile

Parque Nacional Lauca Up here we see the most water we’ve seen, lake Chungará sits at the base of two volcanos, Parinacota the grandest at 6350m. This is just rude, just rude. A salty altiplano lake with crusty white and yellow trim supports flamingos, ducks and god knows how many other birds enclosed by a […]
