An Aussie with a passion in life for travel and enjoying the experiences and places that the world has to offer. Apart from living in Australia, I have also spent a number of years in the United States and worked in New Zealand and Hungary. I have been fortunate in having the opportunity to travel widely in Australasia, Asia, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Central America and North America and have many more journeys planned for the future.

Apart from travel my interests are diverse and possibly somewhat confusing to many! These include world history, aircraft, ships, military vehicles, classic cars, music (especially heavy metal/hard rock), movies, sporting events, photography, hiking, natural wonders, wild life, architecture, food and the weird and wonderful.

This particular blog is a retrospective of past travels and of current experiences around the world. For my specific North American experiences living in the United States please take a look at my other blog Deano In America.

If you like aviation then please also take a look at my Aces Flying High blog about my travels to various aviation and space travel related museums and events around the world, with a little bit of history thrown in for good measure. Aces Flying High – The Survivors is about rare aircraft I have seen at air shows and museums around the world.

Thanks for taking a look at my blog. I hope you find it an interesting and enjoyable read.

    1. Deano says:

      Hi Jenny, I am not sure if they sell them via the official site/contact http://www.siloarttrail.com/

    Hi great pics of silverton and surrounding areas. When you were there was the Mundi looking being worked on? Google earth shows construction equipment and a larger parking area cleared. I’m hoping to trek up there early next year, I only hope they haven’t changed the road layout

    1. Deano says:

      Hi Brad. Thanks! There was no construction but part of the road was flooded at the time.

  8. Mick Carson says:

    Hello Deano. I’m interested in the photos of the Normandy Invasion. Are they yours? If so, let me know via my email astron60@dodo.com.au or even here. I would like your permission to use some photos to add them in my Men of War edited tutorial games of which I made in relation to the Omaha Beach landing and other short tutorials of German occupation and invasions, then I upload the video in YouTube. I will add your name in the credit also. If they photos are not yours, can you tell me who owns them, as I do not wish to break their copyrights. Please let me know. Thanks.

    1. Deano says:

      Hi Mick, thanks for the message. Do you mean the historic photos (not mine) or present day photos (mine)?

  9. Mick Carson says:

    Thanks for responding, Deano. yes, the historic photos. Who owns them? Thanks.

    1. Deano says:

      Hi Mick, they were a collection of photos I had saved from general internet searches over the years but should mostly be able to be found on the US Library of Congress and US National Archives photo database. Unfortunately I didnt keep a record on each photo which I wish I had done.

  10. Mick Carson says:

    Does that mean it’s ok to use some photos for my YouTube video?

    1. Deano says:

      I think it would depend on commercial intent etc. You can find more info here https://www.archives.gov/global-pages/publish-photos.html

      Your best bet would be to search their database and download specific images as suitable
