Travel Blog

My travel blog can be found at this location:

The travel blog contains blogs from all of my recent major trips including Australia, Namibia, Kenya/Uganda/Rwanda and Helsinki and is constantly being updated with info from my travels. It contains a gallery and anything else I think could be useful too.

NB: These posts are in chronological order. More updates for older trips may have been added recently but may not be shown – visit the main Travel Blog for all posts, and for these posts in full detail.
