Following our trip to Ranthambore we flew to Leh, Ladakh, to start our journey to Uley to hopefully see the Snow Leopards in the mountains of Uley. We joined up with our good friends Ann Brooks and Sue Saunders at the Mahay Retreat and stayed for four nights to see the local temples which included visit to the festival at Matho Monastery. Then we headed to the Snow Leopard Lodge in the mountains of Ladakh. Our journey was curtailed by the outbreak of Coronavirus. Who would have believed that we weren't safe in the mountains where there was no phone or internet.
Trip to New Delhi and then transfer to Jaipur as Elaine, my wife, was taking part in an International Floral Competition. I went off to Ranthambore for a few days and left Elaine to make wonderful floral creations. We both then transferred to Ranthambore and stayed with Hemraj Meena at his wonderful Tiger Home Lodge very close to the entrance to Ranthambore.
Third trip to visit Yellowstone National Park in the winter. This trip more or less mirrored the 2015 trip where we spent eight days in the Lamar Valley, three nights at the snow lodge in the heart of the park, and five nights at West Yellowstone.
Last minute trip to the Yucatan region of Mexico which I booked after some research about the area. A frustrating trip and not one I would recommend but nevertheless was enjoyable and I had a great time just chilling and doing things you normally do on holiday rather than chasing wildlife!
Four and a half weeks in Brazil. Architecture, wolves, birds, and Jaguars which equates to Ouro Preto, Barreiras, Sao Paulo coast and the Pantanal Amazing, incredible and lots of photographic opportunities.
A very disappointing trip with lack of bears on a non-photographic expedition!!
