Nepal has 8 out of 10 of the highest mountains in the world, courtesy of the Himalayan range. A bit of useful knowledge gained from visiting the country many times is which side of the plane to sit on to gain an amazing view of the mountain range when flying into or out of Nepal.

The sky was looming, but it was low tide and everything was in place, so threatened by occasional heavy drops of rain I ventured out for my very first exploration of a rock pool.
Rickett’s Point Marine Sanctuary is down Port Phillip Bay, and I grew up in Perth so it was a totally new area for me. I forgot my gum boots but I always wear my swamp boots, so my feet stayed dry.
- Moon snail egg masses (amazingly gross)
- A totally poisonous conus shell
- Totally not poisonous conus shells
- Sea spiders (not actually spiders)
- Neptune’s Necklace
Two hours later, I looked out to where I'd been from under my umbrella, and there was nothing but water. I didn't realise that even in a bay the tide can rise fast.
