a slight case of jetlag led me to open a car door into my forehead....

me and my iphone

I live in a paradise, on the beautiful sub-tropical Sunshine Coast of Australia. I've variously been a mother and housewife, secondary school teacher, 'ringer' (station hand) helping to run our cattle property, independent director of the national board of Australia's Open Garden Scheme (2000-2010), sometime shopping centre developer, tour guide, volunteer, garden designer and public speaker.


My passion these days is researching an historical novel and the pursuit of beauty through photography, instagram and travel. I'm on a mission to see as much of the world as I can with a wider focus on history, architecture, gardens, design, fashion, people, customs, food and great hotels.


I like to travel light and I don't use a camera much. Most of my photos are taken with an iphone X Max. Sometimes I get out the big guns.
