Where to find colourful fun.

Carnival dancers (Huaraz, Peru)
PERU (Feb 2016): February is the time for very many
processions and festivals in Huaraz (Ancash Region).
Where can you go to have fun and at the same time enjoy spectacular colourful parties? Carnivals and festivals is what you have to look for, and luckily in South America it's not in short supply. The clothing is stunningly colourful, dancers and musicians will have you tapping your feet in anticipation of a dance - plus you can get super colourful photos to add to your travel memories.

Why I love waves (And you should too!)


The sight and sound of waves breaking against and over the rocks can keep us mesmerised for hours. Every splash is different - the water pulling back - build up to the next wave - crash!! No second is equal - no moment totally still. How do we explain or express this to somebody else? ...with difficulty! My passion is photography and together with a deep love for the ocean, I spend my time at the coast completely immersed - living every sound and movement of the water.

Even though the shutter speed is fairly low at 1/40s - already see some speed streaking in the water.

Where are the tourists? - the case of Coishco (Peru)

Plaza de Armas - Coishco (Peru)
Plaza de Armas (Coishco - Ancash, Peru)
A brief take on Coishco, north of Chimbote (Ancash Region, Peru)
Travelling through Coishco by bus or other public transport is unlikely to leave you with any lingering memories, except maybe of the heat that appears to exceed the summer heat in Chimbote, (about 20min south via the Panamerican Highway) or the large fish design in the Plaza de Armas
