Lesotho – Snow Birthday

I’ve always wanted to drive up Sani Pass into Lesotho. Even before we got ‘Wimpy Hightop’ (our old 1963 Series II Land Rover).  The weather man told us that a massive cold-front was on it’s way and extreeeem conditions were expected in the Drakensberg and Lesotho areas, with snowfall predicted too! All this forecast for my birthday weekend! It was a sign!
Some last minute arrangments and we were off with lots of warm cloths and our cameras…

I have never seen falling snow, so when the first flakes hit the wind screen as we reached the top of the pass, I was ecstatic!!!  Best birthday present ever!

That night the temperature dropped to -15 deg C !!!! The wind pumped so heard that the snow fell horizontally! The water in Wimpy’s radiator froze so I had to do some bush-mechanic repairs to the cracked water pump… What an awesome weekend!

  • Post ceremony hangouts.
  • From that insane backlight, you would never guess it bucketed down until 5 minutes before Kerry and Shane’s ceremony.
  • Kerry and Shane. Just a classic portrait. What you can’t see are the swarms of ants crawling up their feet and the tons of flies buzzing around their heads. Unexpected stories are the most fun, and the ones you always remember.
  • Some just married goodness 🔥
  • This love is 🔥
  • On Tuesday we got to witness Elaine and George say their “hell yeahs” to each other in the most magical stone cathedral in the Highlands outside of Sydney.
  • After 3 weeks of pretty much being camera free, we decided to get our eye back into it so we set ourselves a little challenge : weird portraits of each other shot only with our iPhones, in hard light with the crowds at the Sydney opera house and edited only with our phones. And it was so damn fun!
  • Have these two faces: A - just woken from a nap. B - just smoked a fatty. C - just had a massage on the beach. This is probably the quietest we’ve  been on IG since we joined it many moons ago. I fluctuate between feeling like our business is going to fall apart without giving it my constant attention, and relishing in being disconnected for a bit... All I know is we needed the rest 🙌🏽
  • When that first kiss literally sweeps you off your feet 💜
  • About 5 minutes into Carli and Karel’s ceremony it started raining pretty hard, but it cleared up just in time for the official being married bits 🙌🏽
  • Rosie and Deane, being all sexy and in love. Also, I am still beyond in love with her @sadiebosworthatelier dress 😱
  • Carli and Karel and some cool ass glass building lines ☺️

We Choose Adventure on Instagram

  • People watching from the shade.
  • Exploring the narrow streets and alleyways of Stone Town, Zanzibar. This place reminds us so much of the old part of Jeddah with the African/Arab cross culture and architecture.
  • It may be “sun’s out, guns out”, but it’s “balls out” at sunset when the heat finally let’s up.
  • Excellent vibe on what’s left of the beach at high tide.
  • Ocean and people watching from a shadey spot. The guy on the right, dressed in tradition Masai garb, is David. We had along chat about tattoos before he sold me a bracelet.
  • Dear god it’s hot. But also quite nice.
  • Hello Zanzibar 🤗 Can’t wait to get in that water!
  • We’re a hazard when we’re walking the streets cus we’re always looking up and bumping into people. Obsessed with the beautiful Dutch architecture!
  • If you really want to blow your mind in Amsterdam, try walking round an art gallery after visiting a “coffeeshop”. 🤯
  • Yesterday it was sunny, but the overcast sky and light drizzle suit this place way more. #wechooseadventure_scotland #wechooseadventure
  • Exploring Edinburgh at night. In this place, if it’s not raining, it’s about to rain. #wechooseadventure #wechooseadventure_scotland
  • Made a special mission to see these guys in Glasgow last night. Absolutely epic! @coheed
