Doing Denver is Delectable

I arrived in Denver by train, on the California Zephyr, which was running about three hours late.  Apparently, this isn’t an uncommon thing. My first view of Denver was of its lights in the distance and we descended from the Rockies. There was a blood moon in the sky, and it made Denver look very mystical. After disembarking from the train I didn’t have far to...

The mountain itself can be seen from a long distance away, but the volcano isn’t the reason many people visit, it is a plug from the volcano which attracts thousands of pilgrims each year. This plug rises to...

Royally modern Victoria

Clutching the back of the little seat in front of me I peer out the cabin window of our seaplane mentally preparing myself for my first aircraft water landing. Bumpy, hard, smooth or shaky I consider every landing of these mechanical birds a ‘good one’ if there’s no need to activate the emergency slide.  I’m not sure what a seaplane water landing should feel...

Together Apart: Living in Lockdown

When COVID-19 hit the Victorian capital Melbourne in a big way earlier in 2020, it had a dramatic impact on the lives of Melburnians. Belinda Jackson, one of our esteemed storytellers lived through the lockdown.  Although it was tough, a conversation over the back fence with her neighbour, portrait photographer Jude van Daalen, led to the idea for a book about...

As a run my fingers slowly across the handmade clay brick remains of once imposing...

Viva Vanuatu

To my left dense forest threatens to swallow everything in its path if not for the busy roadway that halts its creeping tendrils. To my right, I see glimpses of the turquoise Pacific Ocean between simple huts with thatched rooves and walls woven from bush materials and fancy neighbouring resorts offering deep-sea fishing adventures. During our day trip along a single...
