I fell in love with the Norwegian laid back and raw way of life, the koselig farm houses and Josh all over again.
We helped herd sheep off a mountain, explored the coastline, picked wild flowers + more berries and enjoyed more of what Norway had to offer.
A lot has happened since my last post and many countries have past, Turkey, Greece through Europe and we are now in Central America. When we get back home I look forward to going through all the photos/memories and sharing them with you! Here are some photos from the beautiful Norway. This country literally took our breath away every day, it has the most spectacular scenery and such lovely people! When we first arrived and saw the most spectacular fjords, we realised just how blessed we were to be there. We stayed with some friends on their farm in Midsund, which was such a rejuvenating and relaxing time for me, before being taken around to some other sweet spots.
Our time with them consisted of listening to records, playing backgammon, reading, picking berries, riding our bikes, fishing, chopping down trees (Josh), eating the best jam around, going for walks, having a special plane ride through the mountains and taking photos.
Before I left I also shot for the latest Spring edition of the Good Life Magazine at the Tunnel Ridge Ranch. It was such a beautiful setting, it seriously made me want to go live on a farm and ride horses every day (even though I am allergic)! Horses just have something about them, a relaxing & peaceful nature… Here are some shots from the day.
I have been a little slack with updating the blog, we are currently in France, but I will go back to India and show images from the Northern Himalayas. We took a plane and then a 13 hour overnight crazy bus trip to McLeod Ganj – here you have the Tibetan colony in exile’s official office, home of the Dalai Lama and hundreds of red and orange robed monks. We spent a week and a half exploring, meeting people and learning about their culture, I would highly recommend visiting here.
Before I left I took some shots for the Winter edition of the Good Life Magazine. We had such a nice afternoon shooting, preparing, cooking & eating!!
We have been having such a great time exploring India, we haven’t done as much as we thought – as when we got here, we have crashed from being so tired. When we first arrived, I was filled with quite a bit of fear of everyone who looked at me, but we have found most of the people we have met to be really nice (although we have been sticking to the quiet areas). We visited a southern Goa beach village and stayed in a beautiful bay, Colom Beach. Here we have been relaxing, exploring around the towns on a scooter and meeting some very cool people.
Here are some pictures I’ve been taking….
We are setting off on a little adventure today, my husband and I. We have both been wanting to travel for a very long time and now we are finally doing it. The plan is to be away for 1 year and travel through India, Europe & the Americas.
Our hope is to experience new cultures, see God’s amazing creation, grow closer together and learn about ourselves. I’m sure it will be challenging and I don’t feel ready for it but I am excited to see what happens! We will also be gathering some stories for our new online magazine EDEN & blogging as we go here.
I will try to blog as much as I can as we travel around, and if anyone has any tips for the places we are going, feel free!
Although I won’t be able to take on new design/stationery work I will be available to do photo shoots along the way.
I have some very exciting news to share – we are launching a magazine called, EDEN. My husband and I have been dreaming / planning / thinking about this for years now and finally we have created something which we are so proud of, with the help of some amazing contributors. We have some amazing people and stories in the first edition and I hope you will all love reading it, as much as we have making it.
If you are on the Sunshine Coast on Saturday 23rd March, we would love it if you would join and celebrate with us at our Launch Night.
After the launch night you will be able to view the magazine at edenmagazine.com.au
See you there x
The Autumn Good Life Mag is now out (which I will photograph and share soon). There were a few of my favourites which didn’t make the magazine I wanted to share. It was such a fun shoot with lovely flowers, beautiful girls and a new secret location…
Happy Friday! It has been a rainy rainy day today and I have been able to go through some more of our Bali photos from the beginning of last year! Wow I am learning I need to go through my photos straight away, otherwise I just don’t get a chance! I have been enjoying looking back at these photos, I have quite a few so I might split them into a few posts – it’s reminding me how much I love travelling, especially when we have the time to explore and take everything in. We had a month of exploring Bali, we could have stayed longer. Here are a few photos from our time in and around Canggu…
