The Ambon War Cemetery north-east if Ambon town, Maluku.
Some 2,000 fallen soldiers from Australia, The Netherlands and Britain are remembered here.
The site was used as a prisoner-of-war camp known as Tan Touy, during WWII.
There are constant reminders to be found at home and away of the sacrifices made for our everyday freedoms.
Thinking of my Grandfather in particular today.
Lest we forget.
Luxury on the edge of the Indonesian jungle @kupubarong in Ubud.

LEST WE FORGET // In Australia it's Anzac Day, a day when the country respects those who have fallen to protect the freedoms of many. There are dawn services right around the country, but few are bigger that the one at Elephant Rock on Currumbin Beach, where around 15,000 people flock in the pre-dawn darkness to wait for the sunrise ceremony. This morning we were amongst them. Captured lots of shots, but thought the most fitting was this line of outriggers at sea with their oars raised in salute as kids frolic blissfully in the shore. Lest we forget. #anzacday#currumbin#wearegoldcoast
Good morning! I'm not going to do a long post today because it is ANZAC day in Australia and it's a poignant day for many. So here are some beautiful flowers I found fallen here in Jakarta. 🌼💛 @shangrilajkt#shangrilajkt
L A S T L A P // So about that sunset last night, where do I start? This is Australia's Gold Coast living up to its name at beautiful Rainbow Bay; that's our eldest to the left doing one more run around the point to score more waves before the sun went down. Such a magic spot any time of day, but especially so at sundown. No filter. #happyplace#wearegoldcoast#rainbowbay
I am interrupting my Western Australia shots to share exactly what I am doing right now but don't worry, I have photos for days right now and it will all get posted. 😂😂 I'm in Jakarta! Well, specifically at the Shangri-La Jakarta because I haven't left the hotel literally at all, this was a really unique and random trip. If you missed my story the other day it goes a little like this ... I decided to do a 'status run' because I'm really close to upgrading to Platinum as a Qantas frequent flyer. If you're not an aviation geek you probably don't know the extents that we go to for this stuff. lol. Anyway I wanted to go somewhere that would enable me to upgrade and I wanted to spend four days holed away in a hotel room writing content for my online photography course. I got a great recommendation for the Shangri-La and an introduction and they agreed to look after me in Jakarta. At the last minute Dreamboat decided to join me so I really haven't gotten any work done at all but at least I am well rested and feeling fabulous for the weekend ahead. Yay! Oh and here's maybe the only couple shot I've ever posted on Instagram. 😂😂 @shangrilajkt#shangrilajkt
My last post for @TheTravelBootcamp because we are closing ticket sales TODAY! If you've been sitting on the fence then time to jump off because it is going to be an epic, epic day! We've got at least a dozen people coming from really far away. (think USA, Switzerland, Hawaii and New Zealand) We have a dual Olympian coming! We have amazing writers and traditional media who would be great to network with. Olympus is there with all their gear and have actually ended up sponsoring a handful of our past delegates. We have a second brand so close to confirming their attendance and there's even a chance of a major show coming to film some snippets. Basically this is going to be our biggest and best event so far! Finally, Olympus have very, very generously offered 15% off for anyone booking today off social (a deal we have only shared with our email database). Just use 'OLYMPUS15' at checkout and get in quick because there's only a handful of tickets left and if we sell too fast I will close sales. See you on the weekend in Melbourne! Xx #TheTravelBootcamp
