Travelling and Demon Slaying

I’ve wanted to swim with wild dol­phins ever since I can remem­ber. I went through a petu­lant teen­age denial of this when swim­ming with dol­phins sud­denly became a fash­ion­able life dream to pos­sess. This period didn’t last long – my dream was too big to be con­tained through con­trar­i­ness and it per­sisted like an itch that needed scratch­ing all through my twen­ties. By the time I was in my thirties it was vir­tu­ally at obses­sion level. Con­tinue read­ing

The Weather Channel: From the Edge with Peter Lik (Giveaway Promotion)

The Weather Chan­nel is launch­ing a new real­ity TV show, “From the Edge with Peter Lik,” focus­ing on scenic out­door pho­to­graphy.

The ocean, me and a dolphin or two

People travel for many dif­fer­ent reas­ons – to be sur­roun­ded by the brand new and exotic, to learn and grow, to get lost and found, to find peace and under­stand­ing. I travel for all those reas­ons but for me, my con­stant nomadic life­style is driven by an urge and a pas­sion that I can’t cure myself of; it is to ride the waves of every ocean the world throws onto a shore some­where.

Just-back Blues

We’re back. As expec­ted, the jet-lag has worn off and so too has the first euphoria that comes with greet­ing friends and fam­ily we haven’t seen for 8 months. We’ve been doing this now for 7 years and I know what comes next – the big slump or the wan­der­lust lurgy as I now refer to it. The onset of its symp­toms can begin any­where between 24 hours and 2 weeks after the return to Blighty, depend­ant on the kind of trip we have had and where we have been. Con­tinue read­ing

The Ultimate Journey

Quite some years ago I worked as a dive instructor on the island of Koh Lanta, Thai­l­and. It was one of the best times of my life. I had the best job in the world, watch­ing fish in their nat­ural hab­itat almost every day and work­ing along­side some of the nicest people I have ever met on all my travels. It was a blast.
