A Journey Through Maharashtra On The Deccan Odyssey Luxury Train

India, India, India.… It can be intimidating, but it can also be so inviting. Here is an example of the friendly India I love and will go back to time and again… my latest video showing a week-long tour through Maharashtra, aboard the Deccan Odyssey luxury train.

I was only there for 4 days and change, but when you see the pictures below and my video, you’ll know why it was worth the journey.…


Pure Inspiration on Film: The Road to Free Rider

For anyone in need of a large dose of pure inspiration, here it is. Road to Free Rider is a great video made by Oli Lyon and Nathan Murphy, a couple of young climbers. But almost as interesting as the extreme sport is Oli’s intro to the film. It will certainly resonate with a lot of people who make daily sacrifices to be able to do something different or something that they love.…

Tis the season to be merry, and I decided to wish you Happy Christmas in travel photos from places I visited in the last 12 months!
