Super Fly Finale.

Phew. A three-week US tour behind us. It’s been tough. It’s been stamina hammering. But it’s been fun. Shame to be leaving really, but commitments elsewhere beckon. We do leave with a ton of strong impressions and good memories though – and loads of pics. In all we managed to cram a heck of a lot into the allotted time, but made sure we enjoyed ourselves too – stopping to smell the roses and see the sights when we could. Now for the same old “suitcase – taxi – airport…”. Where we’re off to next I’ll tell you later on. But it sure looks like we’re in for a total change of landscape.

Our last day, in New York, turned out to be a pleasantly sassy, super-fly summation: a peachy press conference attended by folks from all over the world – including star participant Fernando Alonso! He’s playing the lead role in the new clip for our Safeguarding Me campaign (if you only knew how we had to guard his special “tomita” (the little Japanese talisman in the vid) during shooting!). Have a look for yourself:

“So the Welshman says…”:

K.A. glamorously making up for our casual dress :)

So, yeah, it’s +34…

Our take on a checkered flag

Where we were gave great views of that place of dreadful memories – ground zero, where construction of a new building is still taking place. Swish skyscraper. Due to open at the end of 2013. 105 floors, all glassy and classy. Good work!:

That’s it for today. Later!…

In Kimberley, Oz, I was. Part 6.

G’day possums! Herewith, the penultimate post in what has turned out to be a bit of a marathon travelogue series from down-under… After lunch after our morning adventures on our last full day here, it was finally time for some retail therapy! But not in the traditional sense of mall-traipsing + inevitable food-court submission, naturally; […]

In Kimberley, Oz, I was. Part 5.

Time to move from all things on-land to all things just off it – to the more attractive sections of coastline, for we were told the best natural charms of Kimberley lie on or near its shoreline. From Broome (the region’s ‘capital’ if you missed it earlier, also our base) the nearest bit of awesome […]

G’day possums! Back. In the outback… The next point of call on our tour or northwestern Australia was the Tunnel Creek National Park, around half an hour’s drive from Windjana Gorge. Tunnel Creek itself runs through a natural cave cut into the limestone that was once the Devonian reef here under the ocean. Tourists come […]

Hi all! After our first, somewhat tame forays into the wonderful wizard corner of Oz called Kimberely, it was high time we headed to the hellishly hot central part of the region – into the savanna and nearer to the Great Sandy Desert. For there’s plenty to see there too… Now, if you were to travel […]

In Kimberley, Oz, I was. Part 2.

G’day folks! I’m back – with tales from the outback… In today’s installment, a bit of narrative, but mostly just lots of pics – both from up in the air and on the ground. The landscapes here are stupefying. Endless horizons and beaches, islands, savannah, rock formations, cliffs. There’s so much to take in… so […]

In Kimberley, Oz, I was. Part 1.

By way of a preface: Without looking on the Internet, who can tell me which is bigger: the Moon or Australia? This is the first in a mini-series of posts on Kimberley, Australia! I’d heard a lot about this place. That it’s impressively beautiful, with scenic landscapes and fantastic views. But that it’s also huge, hard to […]
