Body Science Great Aussie Swim and Nokia Lumia 1020

Over the Australia Day long weekend I was thrilled to be invited to The Body Science Great Aussie Swim series. It was an awesome event organised and hosted by one of the best Ironmen in the history of Surf Lifesaving. Ky Hurst, 7 times Australian Ironman champion did a wonderful job facilitating the weekend and provided extra motivation and inspiration for all participants.

During my time in Sydney, I thought I would take the opportunity to start using some of my new technology. I am fortunate enough to be selected to participate in the Microsoft Connections Programs which means I get to trial and assess some of Microsofts latest and greatest technology. For me it is all about simplicity, efficiency and ease of use. My work demands devices that can speak to each other making multitasking easy and of course I need storage (and plenty of it). I am testing out Microsoft Office 365 suite and the new Nokia Lumia 1020 which is a Windows phone and provides the most amazing photos I have seen from a phone. Below is a sample from the weekend using the Lumia 1020.
