Over the past couple of months, photography is something I have not found much time to pursue. But in the last week or so I have been happy to get the camera and also the drone out to capture some photos. Some of the results you may be able to see if you have been following my Instagram or Facebook page.
I got my MacBook back from Apple on Sunday afternoon, after a week without it. It was rather difficult to get into the process of using another computer for that week. However, I did manage and while I was not quite as productive it did highlight some points of failure for me in my process. I do for the most part keep a fairly up to date backup, but it is also a challenge for continual access if the computer fails.
I hope that your week has been a good one and that this weekend has been a safe one for you. Especially if you are travelling at this time over Easter.

Making Friends With Couch Surfing
For the most part, travelling is about going somewhere and exploring or experiencing the destination. However, there can be a whole other aspect to travelling, the act of being social and meeting new people. One way I have done this is with Couch Surfing and I share a little about the site and how I used it.

Almost all of the travel that I have done has been solo. I have found that there are some great advantages and benefits to travelling solo and wanted to explore some of them. From having freedom to explore your way, meeting new friends and expanding your comfort zone.

Finding Time To Write When Travelling
When I am travelling I love to write about my experience to share with you through this blog. However, at times it can be rather difficult to find the time or make the time while experiencing the destination. So in this post, I take a look at some ideas for how to find the time for writing when travelling.
What I’m Reading
While it looks like I share a lot of content myself, I do also get a chance to read other people’s blogs as well. Below are just a couple of posts I found interesting and wanted to share with you
There are often any number of stories that come up when you travel. Of course sometimes when you read the stories of others your adventures seem so much less entertaining. The stories Jessie has to share about encounters on buses in south America, well all I can say is I am glad I have not had similar encounters.
I am not sure why, maybe it is an omen, but the Arctic region has popped up in my feed a number of times this week. When I looked through this list of things to do in the Arctic, well there are more than a couple of that I would be interested in. So maybe it is somewhere I should be looking to head to.
If you did not know every day I go out seeking good coffee (read about it). One day recently I got talking to a Barista and subsequently, that night had a look at his blog. Coffee definitely tastes good when the person behind the machine knows their stuff.

Road Trip Brisbane To Stanthorpe
Around two years ago I set off from Brisbane for a few days in Stanthorpe over Easter to attend a Geocaching Event. Instead of the more direct route, I took the long way. I have finally got around to putting together my story and sharing it on the blog here.
What Is Holding You Back From Travelling?
There are many reasons that we might be held back from travelling. However, most of them are not so entirely valid and might be somewhat easier to overcome than you think.
Road Trip Hazards
After writing the post I shared on Monday, I have been thinking more about road trips. Partially about heading off on one soon, but also about some of the aspects you encounter along the way. Today I talk about some of the hazards.
