Travel is the Phoenix that elevates you above the commonplace, to soar on the currents of astonishment!
A cosy, informal guest house for like-minded travellers to gather and explore the wonders of the world.
Whether you prefer to meet in the study, for in-depth travel analysis; the living room, for a luxurious interlude; the basement, for budget advice; or the kitchen, for authentic international cuisine, astonishedXpression intends value-adding to your every travel need.
Welcome to the house! I hope you have a pleasant visit!
The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page – Saint Augustine
So who am I?
I am an independent traveller with a passion for photography. I like to share experiences that make an impression on me through the written word in the hope that others may find it useful and enriching.
I have a tertiary qualification in journalism and public relations and have been employed as reporter and communications expert. I currently work as manager in a service-related industry.
I have resided in two countries and visited most of the continents.
Happily married with an adult son who is currently studying overseas.
I love animals and share our home with a Newfoundland, St Bernard, Clumber Spaniel, Burmese, Bengal, Somali and ‘Domestic Shorthair’!
