After finishing the Annapurna Base Camp trek and taking a couple of days off in Pokhara, we travelled to the town of Lumbini, where Buddha was born.
The oldest signs of human activity at the supposed birthplace go all the way back to 1000 BC. According to Robin Coningham, who excavated the si
It's been a while since I last chimed in and a lot of stuff happened in between.
As I mentioned in my last entry, I've met a group of Portuguese students who 'adopted' me and I joined them on a 9 day trek from a town called Nayapool all the way up to Annapurna Base Camp, where we spe
I made it to Nepal :)
Things here got complicated about 15 minutes after I entered the airport (we landed at about 3pm local time). I wanted to buy a visa, but the ATM at the immigration wouldn't accept my card. After waiting for about 20 minutes, they wrote me a permit which allowed me to
As I mentioned two days ago, I went on a photo walk yesterday evening with fellow photographers from facebook group Bangkok Photographers. I went to our designated meeting spot a couple of hours earlier, so that I was able to look at the exhibitions in the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre -
I skipped a couple of days again, I spent some more time with my friends and didn't do much exploring or photography. But they moved on and I'm back again :)
I'm writing this entry on Sunday but events described actually took place on Saturday.
I went to visit the temple of Wat Pho, built by
I now, I know, I skipped days 4 and 5. That's due to the fact that one of my friends decided to have a stag party in Thailand, and in the end he found 3 more friends that were willing to join him. They made a 4 day stop in Bangkok, so we met the day before yesterday and got a lit
I started this day at 8:00. After obligatory morning shower and breakfast I went down to the skytrain, where I boarded the train to Bang Wa station, the last station on this section of railway. From Bang Wa I took a taxi to Khlong Lat Mayom market, where there was also supposed to be
Hello again and welcome to another edition of my blog!
Today I got up at 7:00, took a shower, ate the breakfast, locked away all my valuables - save for the camera - and stepped out on the street to get to the floating market, as I planned yesterday.
Of course, it was pouring rain. First thought tha
I decided to change the name of my blog according to the places I'll be staying at.
Let me start this first part of the blog by summing up my last couple of days in Fiji and my trip to Bangkok.
My new friend Lucie and I boarded a ferry from Taveuni to Suva on Sunday morning. The jour
Today was a good day for exercise, much less so for photography.
Lucie and I met Sven at the reception after breakfast. We walked down to the bus station together, where we boarded a bus to the village of Lavena, which offers the tourists a coastal walk. The whole track runs just above the be
Yo! (I'm running out of ways to greet you XD)
Today has been an interesting day.
When I woke up, Cassy and Lucie mentioned they're going to go on a trek to some waterfalls. I wasn't going to join them at first, as my budget is really tight, but in the end I figured since I'm only here for a couple m
Like I already told in previous post, Lucie (a friend I made on the way) and I came to Taveuni island on Tuesday. Taveuni is the third biggest island in Fiji. It is also one of the few places where the 180th meridian - which represents the international date line - crosses land, which m
