New year gems January 08, 2014 Nico Marino has been travelling the world on his bike. A year ago a gorgeous gal named Julie joined him. Here’s a video of some of their travels from the last year. Also, here are some amazing photos of the original Australian peoples…Amy Toensing « Heart warming stuff....HNY! Intaglio » Journal Comments Ellen Cotton over 2 years ago I really enjoyed both, Mel! Thank you so much for sharing them! Mel Brackstone over 2 years ago You’re welcome! Glad you enjoyed. :) StuartChapman over 2 years ago If I have unlimited resources heck, even just a load of money, I would so have to visit the world by bike. Even the worst conditions shown there had me purring with “that looks SO much fun”. Totally envious but glad it’s been recorded. Mel Brackstone over 2 years ago Nico admits that there’s a lot of hard work involved in having this much fun. ;) He is going to continue his journey for another 4 years! banrai over 2 years ago great adventure, gutsy wonderful pair…fine video too! Mel Brackstone over 2 years ago Isn’t it though? :) F.A. Moore over 2 years ago What a fascinating body of work is Amy Toensing’s" Aboriginal Australia". I didn’t want it to end. Can you imagine touring the world on a bike? They are awesome. I wonder if they got lost and loved every minute of it. :) Cool gems, Mel! Mel Brackstone over 2 years ago Cheers Frannie, yes, Amy’s images are fantastic. There’s so much more on her site too! As for touring on a bike, I can’t even begin to imagine….but Nico and Julie are still young enough to enjoy it! He says he’ll come visit when he comes to Aus, but I’m not sure I’ll be able to suggest anything as adventurous as the places he’s been!
