Living in Bali

Living in Bali I’m careful not to crush the delicate box filled with petals and bread at my feet and just follow the path wherever it leads…

Many more of the tiny boxes are scattered over the stone steps and above the mossy walls are the gold temple umbrellas, bright against a cloudless sky.

I’m not sure where the path leads but I appear to be in paradise. Read More

Cancun Mexico
Thinking of Cancun led us to think – wild parties, never-ending nightlife, glitzy Vegas style resorts, white-sanded beaches infused with the colour and flavours of the Mexican “fiesta” and drunken tourists.

Swimming with Endangered Green Sea Turtles in the wild… for many of us would be a dream come true.

When I heard we could swim with Green Sea Turtles, right off Akumal Beach in Mexico – I was ecstatic. I had dreamt about it for years, so I didn’t waste any time getting there.

Best of all there was no long boat ride in the hot Mexico sun. Just rock up to Akumal Beach, jump in, and you’re in Green Sea Turtle Paradise. Read More

For millions of years, this mystical underworld stayed hidden deep underground in the Riviera Maya, Yucatan, Mexico. It’s where the underworld meets the heavens. This womb of the earth is a sacred place to the Mayans who believed it was the doorway to the afterlife.

We were exploring Mexico’s cenotes and caves, looking for that something special when we discovered one of the true Wonders of the World – ‘Rio Secreto’. So much more than a cenote, it’s a living breathing cave system.
