November was a fantastic month for me apart from being my birthday I went to Malta for the first time and to stay in a 5* hotel, It was also the first time I have went to an international salsa congress.

In October I was lucky to get some time away to a salsa congress and get some practice in using my camera. Here is a collection of photo’s I took while there.
Jersey is a beautiful place, apart from hours of dancing, I was lucky enough to get some sight seeing in. Got quite a few inspirational shots to use for my calenders for this years christmas pressie’s.
