Look at that Moon!

‘Oh my God!’, ‘What is that?’, ‘Is that really the moon?’, ‘Is it real?’, ‘You got to be kidding me!’ were some of the thoughts my friends and I had when we saw a half round shaped ‘something’ at the end of the horizon. And yes, we did quickly realise it was the spectacular moon. The sight was absolutely breathtaking, …

Swimming with Seals

I find seals extremely cute. They are the puppies of the ocean. They are inquisitive and extremely playful under water. And my most favorite activity to do is to swim with these puppies.

I waited for a really long time to actually hike this spectacular mountain. I asked all my friends, acquaintances and everyone I knew in Sydney – everyone (well most of them) said “Yes, let’s …

I love Bruce!

‘Call me immediately’, my mother had texted after seeing a picture I had posted on Facebook. I had forgotten that my mother was on my Facebook friends list. Angrily my mother had asked, “Are you going there to see a fish?” Fortunately, she had thought I was only going on a boat trip that would take me to a place to …

Cage of Death

Yes, you heard it right. It’s the cage of death – the only crocodile dive in Australia. Crocosaurus Cove is a reptile park in Darwin and is an exhibit for reptiles, turtles and crocodiles.
