Pasta and Cats – Three Days in Malta

Anybody who has seen me since I visited Malta will know that I utterly fell in love with the place. So much so  that I planned on moving there with Jess as soon as the opportunity arrose. Speaking with so expats in Malta I learned that it's a bit of a tax haven and that … Continue reading Pasta and Cats – Three Days in Malta

There’s a community ran “Cat Cafe” for stray cats in Malta where the cats are the customers, not the furniture.

Walking around just outside of Velletta, there's a small park in Floriena that has a make-shift shanty town just for cats. We came across it when an old gentleman was feeding the small horde of felines. If this same idea was implemented in the UK it'd cost a hundred thousand pounds to install and 16 … Continue reading There’s a community ran “Cat Cafe” for stray cats in Malta where the cats are the customers, not the furniture.

Guest Post: Chiang Mai in Black and White Film

Chiang Mai is one of the most interesting places I've had the pleasure of visiting. Whilst travelling S/E Asia I had the fortune of being able to work remotely for a company in New Zealand. Often times I would appreciate being alone whilst working which can be difficult when you're in a new place and … Continue reading Guest Post: Chiang Mai in Black and White Film

Fights, Football, Alcohol & Balloons on Khao San Road

One of the worst things is everybody is trying to get as drunk as possible whilst suffering from delicate egos and trying to maintain a delusional image that they have of themselves.

Chilling on Khao San

I'm struggling to get back into taking pictures for pleasure, I've lost my edge, my eye for detail and a bit of my passion, Its been almost a year since I left the house in search of something to post on this blog, but I'm forcing myself to get back into it. Having been paid … Continue reading Chilling on Khao San

Koh Phi Phi is Paradise

Writing words on an article is super important, it fills out the space between the title of the article and the images shown below. I'm currently filling a void that needs to be filled, like the void in your life, staring blankly at a screen salivating at the thought of lush images of an island … Continue reading Koh Phi Phi is Paradise

Chiang Mai is a Paradise

If Bangkok is a whore then Chiang Mai is the religious sister who ran away to follow her faith, with 300 temples in the city limits it's impossible to walk anywhere without Buddhism crossing your path. Every street has several temples, every other building has it's own personal shrine to Buddha that they provide with fresh food … Continue reading Chiang Mai is a Paradise

Tums Elephant Santuary Tour in Chiang Mai is Worth Every Baht

Donna and I knew we wanted to see elephants in Thailand, the problem was finding somewhere ethical, we didn't want to ride an elephant but we did want to get close, riding an elephant is one step away from using them as circus animals and it's cruel as fuck, they're beautiful intelligent creatures that deserve … Continue reading Tums Elephant Santuary Tour in Chiang Mai is Worth Every Baht

I Took Some Street Shots in Liverpool With My New Camera

My  passport was put in the wash with a (clean) pair of jeans whilst I was in Australia by my girlfriend. Not long after this, both Donna and I were robbed by a couple of Kiwi's whilst we were at a hostel and whilst we got most of our stuff back when we confronted them … Continue reading I Took Some Street Shots in Liverpool With My New Camera

I Went to the Cat Café in Melbourne

On the corner of a uninspiring street on the edge of the Melbourne CBD there's a small building which upstairs is home for over a dozen rescue cats, they live in feline paradise having every possible need catered for. What I found most endearing when visiting the Melbourne Cat Café was how docile and friendly … Continue reading I Went to the Cat Café in Melbourne

Photographic Proof of K’gari on Fraser Island?

It's no secret that Fraser Island is one of my favourite places in the world so far. Part of the reason for this could be that our guide strongly believed in the Aboriginal stories and legends surrounding the island. He explained that the indigenous people called Fraser Island “K’gari” (pronounced “gurri”) meaning “paradise”. The legend … Continue reading Photographic Proof of K’gari on Fraser Island?

I Took a Dip in the Great Barrier Reef

It was beautiful, at first I thought that snorkelling was really hard and that everybody around me that was doing it successfully was a champion but it turned out I had a broken snorkel, which made taking quality photos really hard, drowning and concentrating generally don't go hand in hand. 2019 Edit: I have fixed … Continue reading I Took a Dip in the Great Barrier Reef

Brissies have better music taste than Mancunians

I am basing this realisation solely on the gig I went to last night. Last year in Manchester I saw La Dispute play, with Pianos Become the Teeth supporting. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U9kg_pe-lUU La Dispute are a post-hardcore punk band with the vocalist Jordan Dreyer paying impressive attention to detail to his heart-wrenching story driven lyrics. You could summarise them as "Emo" … Continue reading Brissies have better music taste than Mancunians
