Top 5 croc/stinger/shark free dream swims in Queensland, Australia

•••
What's the point of going to Australia if you can’t swim in the sea? I’m sure many of us have asked ourselves that question when heading over to Queensland with the Great Barrier Reef in the north and Brisbane in the south in the middle of stinger season. Deadly jellyfish love the warm summer water in the ocean, and from October to May (just when those of us[...]

A year of swimming 52 lakes - The Jessica Lee Story

•••
I'm a nature girl. I could spend all my time running through forests, camping in the mountains or jumping into lakes. The thing is, I'm also a bit of a chicken when it comes to swimming in water with a temperature that's anything below 30°C. Hot showers all the way! Anyway, the project of the Canadian Jessica Lee really peaked my interest: Living in Berlin n[...]

Keeping fit on the road

•••
It's a not just a little ironic that I am the one writing a post on exercising here. I've always had trouble keeping up with my exercise - if there ever was any - at home, let alone whilst traveling.

•••
One of the reasons I keep coming back to Sydney, Australia, is its unique way of balancing urban life and nature: with its stunning coastline, vast parks and secret hideaways, Sydney doesn't make me feel oppressed the way other metropolises do. Sometimes, though, it feels good to get properly, completely out of the city—and spend some time surrounded by noth[...]

The Icebergs, Sydney

•••
When I think of Australian beaches, it’s usually beautiful stretches of sand, rolling luscious surf, babes of both gender laying out to bake, and the odd irrational but understandable fear of jellyfish, sharks, etc lurking in the unknown depths. I love the beach, but sometimes when you want to get some serious swimming done and get that blood pumping, a pool[...]

4 Easy Ways to Get Great Underwater Photos

•••
I’ve always been interested in underwater photography and can spend hours looking at incredible water snaps of surfers, fish or aquatic adventures. In attempt to recreate some of this magic I've been exploring options which would allow me to dive into the world of underwater photography. Photo by James R.D.
