So what can you expect from this blog?

Stories of adventures from all over the world. I’ve been travelling for over 10 years to nearly 100 countries.

If you’ve travelled, you’ll be very aware that things don’t always go as planned, and my misadventures tab is all about those types of stories.  Just have a look at our trip to Chile for a NYE bash gone wrong.

If you finish with my site and want to find out where else my work can be viewed, have a look at my press page.

And finally, if you have any questions, send me an email (kristensen.rae(at) – I’ll answer as quickly as I can.




Thanks for stopping by!
