Way back in the 1960s when I was a child in England my parents took our family on a couple of holidays. My earliest travel memories were of Cornwall and the Isle of White. Every birthday we made a day trip to London where over the years I managed to see all the well know sites of that great city.
Then in 1964 we emigrated to Australia by ship via the Bay of Biscay, through the Mediterranean where we made our first port of call at Port Said then south down the Suez Canal to Aden where we managed to leave the ship for a day trip.
The next long haul was across the Indian Ocean. It was on this part of the trip I realised ship board life was not for me. Sea sickness had me feeding the fish what I had for breakfast on too many occasions.
Perth was our first sighting of Australia and a day trip around the capital of Western Australia was our introduction to this new country we would eventually call our home.
Way before the internet, the form of media we used was Standard and Super 8 movie film. I then progressed to VHS video tape, Video-8, Hi-8 then Digital-8, which eventually gave way to capturing images and movies on DSLRs such as the Canon 7D.
Since January 2012, I’m now the proud owner of an iPhone 4S and with that device a whole new world has opened up to my travel and photographic interests.
When I discovered EveryTrail (January 2012) the ways of the past such as writing in a travel journal will now fade into distant memory.
I just love traveling and wish EveryTrail had been around when I was doing my trips around Australia in the mid 1980s.
