We have a Gopro mini camera. The offspring loves it because he can take it underwater. I love it because it helps me not lug the entire camera gear I tend to normally take. For a totally amateur photog I have quite a bit of gear; which we discover only while packing. We're vacationing in... Continue Reading →
Here for a spell. My kid wants to see crocodiles. Look into reptile retail so we can buy one and take it back home. In the meanwhile he had his first lobster...literally willing it to come flying out the kitchen doors. And then later wanted me to turn the crustacean over so he could see... Continue Reading →

We took a weekend trip to Tadoba, Maharashtra to see tigers in the wild. That did *not* happen. Spiders however featured largely on the menu.. Take a peek here.
