I’m currently in Bali, sitting in a nice, comfortable villa for a couple of days – gathering my thoughts, doing some work and generally recharging my batteries. I have been working hard over the last few months in the UK, and felt the need for a few days of relaxation – not quite a complete [...]

Started uploading more images from Sulawesi this morning, mostly from Bunaken and a few from Banggka.
