Holidays Vs Travel

We all love holidays.  Although I have been overseas twice Thailand and New Zealand my favourite holidays have been in Australia.  We live in a breathtakingly beautiful country and have high living standards.  So why holiday overseas?

I think I have very different definitions of the terms holidays and travel.  Travel is about seeing the world, experiencing other cultures and learning about how others live.  On the other hand holidays are for fun and relaxation, not rushing around trying to see as much as possible and having cultural experiences.

I have taken so many photos and written so many journals whilst on holidays and travelling over many years.  But it is very rare that I look back on them.  So this section of my blog is going to be dedicated to collecting the best of my photos in one place so that they are easy to access and enjoy.

I expect this to be a long and ongoing process.  So far I have chronicled my holidays on the Great Ocean Walk, Port Douglas and Darwin which all took place in 2014 and 2015.  Lots of work to do!
