Thailand Brazil England 2009 are not included in this post, they are trips I made through this year, as well as visiting Sydney in November. Brazil was another great experience which included a fascinating tour through Rocinha Favella. My England trip included Lands End, as well as St Ives & the nice seaside village of Lime Regis.
So although Thailand Brazil England are not included in this post you can access them by clicking on the above links.
This is not part of my travel blog just my personal photographic history.

Jimmy was a border at my home for 15 years from 1994 to 2009. He tends to take himself rather seriously at times. 🙂
I clearly remember one night Dani trying to climb through a gap at the top of my front gate and getting jammed. Her screams could be heard for miles.
Super high tide at home
A tide like this only happened two or three times a year, always at however.

Mine was the white one, even though it was only a 1998 model it is best value car $ for $ I have ever owned.
