Norway – The Streets are Talking

Street art, murals, graffiti – whatever you wish to call them, they represent society’s thoughts – often as political satire or just plain creative expression.

The Lofoten Islands Norway - view 2

The Magical Lofoten Islands, Norway

Once upon a time, I took a plane and a boat to a far off land in the Arctic. It’s a magical place of red fishermen’s cabins on stilts surrounded by mountain ranges with jagged shark teeth edges. Sights and smells of dead cod fish hung out to dry compete with rows of the prettiest […]

Exploring Sydney’s Hottest Hood – Chippendale

If thoughts of bare-bodied hunks gyrating to cheesy top hits come to mind when you think Chippendale, stop right there. Or don’t. Who am I to judge? Chippendale, the hottest district in Sydney right now, is not to be confused with the famous Las Vegas male striptease performers, also known as the Chippendales. Once passed […]
