A mindful forest

The best thing for me today was walking with a 92 year old man trough the forest and having a conversation without speaking his language. Just with the help of a translation app... After he got a little bit tired we sit down and listened, mindful to the sound of the forest. This was the moment... Continue Reading →

Lake Tinaroo

A few pictures of our latest camping trip at Lake Tinaroo. Campfire and camping right at the lake but expect lots of people if you go there in the high season or on school holidays. I recommend the Platypus Campground. No showers but clean toilets and much cheaper than the Caravan Park in Tinaroo. You... Continue Reading →

Flying flowers

Just a small collection of Butterflies of I made pictures from. "When you find yourself cocooned in isolation and despair and cannot find your way out of the darkness, remember that this is similar to the place where caterpillars go to grow their wings."               - © Earthling Gunnar

Just be, whatever you are with whatever you have, and realise that that is enough to be happy.  There’s a whole world out... Continue Reading →

Solitude – the house of peace

“In total seclusion, enlightening, I found the origin of my being.” This a repost from a trip to Mount Mulligan in Far North Queensland a little while ago. I've spoken to a friend today about this stunning, interesting place and it made me want to repeat the trip. 🙂  Mount Mulligan, is a former mining town...

Camping Trip and a Joey

Here are some pictures of our latest camping trip in Far North Queensland. I also did a live broadcast on Periscope which you can replay here. For some reasons did the audio stop after the first few seconds but the scenery is really nice and I was able to film a little Rock Wallaby with... Continue Reading →
