Dylan Lewis Sculpture Garden

Dylan Lewis’ sculpture is set in a garden that runs up to the mountains behind, manicured spaces, contrasted with the wild. It is a place to think and wonder. The perfect ending to our African journey.

Inian Islands, Alaska 2015

A peaceful cove to protect you from the widest weather, water deep enough to moor your boat, a cosy complex of houses to shelter you, tall trees providing cover and soaring beauty, a vegetable garden for food and a lovely garden to relax at the end of a long day.

Point Adolphus, Alaska 2015

No matter what their age, Alaska draws them back. Maybe it’s the wonder of otters and whales swimming by at breakfast. Maybe it is the simplicity of life lived with only three rules (tell someone where you’re going, only eat near the food tent, don’t wipe your hands on your clothes after eating). Or maybe it is just the peace of paddling through still waters.

Women Weaving Water - India

In March 2015, I travelled to India with a group of women to explore the culture, network with other women, and open a clean water centre for Water Health International. The trip allowed me to think a lot about how I want to travel as a woman in this next phase of my life.

The Bucket List - Antarctica

My mother's bucket list trip to Antarctica became the trip that means the most to me. Kayaking through iceberg, watching a leopard seal chase a penguin (who escaped), camping on the ice with penguins walking around us, and, best of all, time alone with my mother.

Thimphu, Bhutan 2012

There comes a point in every long trip that you have had enough of each other’s company and a spat is almost inevitable. That point came in Thimphu.

Annapurna Foothills, Nepal 2012

Popcorn in a tent, football on a mountain field, paragliding at the top of the world… I guess travel really does bring out sides of your personality you never suspected.

Getting ready for Egypt 2008

The girl at Nomad's gave Hamish a list of phrases so the five year old is now going to be our language expert.  Clearly, he'll be in the bazaar negotiating for a good antique sword and finding the best chocolate.  Meanwhile, Iain is going to be our local knowledge expert as they have been studying Egypt in history this term.  Peter and I are along for the ride and the picture taking.
