Release of my E-Book! The Show Must Go On - Being with an Australian Travelling Zoo

Hello World! 

Today on this cold winter December day here in the UK is my birthday so.... I thought it might be an opportune time and occasion to say please BUY MY FIRST E-BOOK 'The Show Must Go On - Being with an Australian Travelling Zoo' which was just one of my many far-fetched experiences during my travels Down Under.

An adaptation of my story was first published overseas in German last year for travel book 'Australien wie wir es sehen' - so I've now brought you the uncut, full length English version for you to enjoy! will download from Amazon to all KINDLE DEVICES, IPAD AND IPHONES around the world.

'Letters From The Amazon' Audio Book story latest episode!




Episode Five - Finding Miss Piggy
'Letter's from the Amazon'   This amusing and enlightening story is told in in six short audio episodes. 
In this latest instalment of Sal's exotic South American adventure, we find ourselves following the pages of her journal notes during her isolation in Ecuador's remote deepest darkest Amazon Rainforest for well over a month later.
Having been initially enchanted by the whirlwind of the jungles bewitching charm, she soon begins to feel the over whelming effects of 'jungle fever', the realism of wild seclusion in a foreign community and the occasional crippling pangs of alienation and looming loneliness....
Until one day, a curly tailed friend is about to turn her world upside down.....a piglet.
 Armed with a $50 note and a new found spring in her step, Sal embarks on a road trip adventure with native ranger Sergio to the local jungle town of Tena in search of a little 'chanchita' as a new addition to the Jatun Sacha reserve. Failing to find one at the market, they begin tenaciously scouring the dusty back streets of Tena searching for clues -  sending them in hot pursuit of 'Senor Rodriguez' to the neighbouring town of Cotundo in their quest of finding Miss Piggy...

Wall of Fame - Travel Snapshot of The Month - Groningen, The Netherlands

Ah the darling buds of May are upon us....that means the start of longer, warmer days and when the world becomes more colourful up here in the Northern Hemisphere.  For May, the tulip fields will now begin to bloom across the smooth, flat lands among the churning Windmills of Holland.

So here's a snap of a White Dutch Yak I befriended streaked with European sunshine wandering among the windmills with its herd during my explorations of the Dutch Province of Groningen....

Have a good month 

Peace :)

'About The Time' ...The Quirks of Amsterdam and The Cat Boat!




'Yarr, I was riding past to verk along de Singel and stopped outside de Oude Lutherse Kerk and looked at zis canal boot and thought....hey zat boot is full of kats!'


A canal 'boot' full of cats!....meaning 'boat' in Dutch that is, said my strong accented dutch guide.... 
I'd been staying at the friendly Shelter Hostel right in the heart of the 'City of Diamonds' and took the opportunity to join their free guided walking tour of Amsterdam on a gloriously light but chilly Friday morning in the core of wintertime in The Netherlands.  Funny enough as cold it was for this chick from Blighty, Amsterdam was experiencing its mildest winter for many years.....only - 6 C. Brrrr.

Wall of Fame - Travel Snapshot of The Month - Outback Australia

Happy 2014! its a brand new year with the hope of more adventures, good times and good changes in life.

Seeing its the dawning of a new year, I thought the swollen crimson sun perched on the jagged mountains in the outback of Australia's red centre would be quite fitting for this month

It was just as stunning in real life!
