1. When I travelled to Mozambique I felt hot

Driving through the beach sand roads of southern Mozambique you can come across many locals. Mostly selling trinkets, carvings & sarongs. But these two young boys were just making use of some old posts and enjoying the sunshine. Ok, maybe enjoying the attention they were getting by showing off the gymnastics skills to passersby.

3. When I travelled to Japan I felt inspired

Kyoto is all about quiet temples, sublime gardens, colourful shrines, geisha scurrying to secret liaisons and some of the best restaurants I have had the pleasure to eat at.

4. When I travelled to Antarctica I felt fantastic, pure and sublime

Travel should be about exploring and helping to break down barriers. Man might then live with man and in harmony with the rest of the species on this planet. It is too small for strife. Meeting local people and seeing the local wildlife confirms that we are all precious commodities.

5. When I travelled to Mongolia I felt like I had walked into the pages of a National Geographic Magazine

I turned 50 years old this year and decided to travel to places that I wouldn't have dreamed of before. So, I went to Iran then Mongolia. Both were breath taking. I no longer want to restrict myself to a few miles from my door step!

7. When I travelled to India I felt amazing

I am a wildlife traveler and photographer, exploring wildlife of India for more than 8 years. This photograph is taken in Velavadar National Park, Gujarat, India. It's a small park of area 30 square kilometers completly grassland, which is ideal habitat for these Blackbucks. Apart from that Velavadar is largest roosting site of Harriers in the world. A heaven for bird watchers in winters.

8. When I travelled to India I felt bombast with colour, noise and energy

I travelled with my husband and four children on an amazing adventure through India in the heat of the summer. The endless, hypnotic hours travelling on the awe-inspiring trains, the excitement of the heritage hotels and the warmth and curiosity of everyone we met made the time fly past. Before we left we were ready to return.

9. When I travelled to Jordan I felt like my crooked bottom teeth weren't so bad

Jordan is a great wee country, sunsets were amazing while camping Wadi Rum, Petra is just beautiful, black mud at the dead sea was entertaining, while the countries people were refreshingly respectful and hassle free. Really fabulous place to explore.

10. When I travelled to the UK I felt paralysed by beauty

We stopped the car along the Duke's Pass scenic drive in southern Scotland and walked through a hidden path until this amazing view opened up before us: Loch Drunkie was perfectly still and the autumnal colours at dawn created this perfectly mirrored kaleidoscope of reds, browsn and greens. I was so stunned by it. I took about a hundred pics!
