The magic of the Blue Mountains ! This is a must see, just 2 hours from Sydney by train.
This whole sea of blue clouds over the forest… to enjoy especially at dawn, when all the tourists are still sleeping.

Kinde Island

Imagine a small, very small island in the middle of nowhere. Going there with friends for a week end. Fishing to eat. Diving with sharks, turtles and the rest of the wild sea life. This is paradise ; this is Kinde Island (Underwater pictures © PJ)

Imaginez une petite, toute petite île au milieu de nul part. Y aller avec des amis pour le week-end. Pêcher pour manger. Plonger avec des requins, tortues, et le reste de la faune sauvage sous marine. Ceci est le Paradis ; ceci est Kinde Island (Photos sous-marines © PJ)
