Photos of Travelling

Here are some photos of places I have traveled to. I started a career break traveling around South East Asia in October 2011. I visited Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia before leaving for Australia just before Christmas. After travelling around Australia for a couple months I settled down and lived the high life in Sydney and worked full time. I then set off travelling again in May to New Zealand for 3 weeks and then South America. I went to Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador and Brazil. I later returned to Australia for a couple months and my last trip was to Hong Kong on the way back to England.
