About “XPLORE – Out & About”


Welcome to XPLORE – “Out & About having fun” in Australia…

About us…

We have always loved the colours of the Australian Outback, the ochre red earth touching a deep blue sky on a faraway horizon; and the fabulous coastline of our sunburnt country, where a golden sandy beach is washed over by a turquoise blue sea; and the characters you meet in a quiet country pub, where it is nothing flash, but you are enriched by the encounter and the banter…

In 2017 we decided that after many years of paid and unpaid work that it was time for us to “graduate from work” and re-enter “the classroom of life” where an education is guaranteed and all that is needed is an open mind.

Thanks for joining us in the adventure…!

Baz and Janet-Planet…

    Hello Baz,
    I did my PhD thesis on zebra finches and would like to ask, if I could use part of one of your pictures for the cover of the thesis? I would also be happy to write more to you via email, but couldn`t find any email adress….
    All the best from Germany,

    It’s great to meet a fellow explorer Baz. Although my travels have been in the other hemisphere thus far, this might be a good time to wrack up some virtual Australian miles.
