Two Posts in one week? Crazy! When we originally started planning out our trip, we picked a few special must-see cities before connecting them with other destinations. Bhaktapur was one of those original few. After seeing the movie Baraka and appreciating the beautiful imagery that this city has to offer, it was hard to pass […]

Let’s just ignore the fact that this post is long overdue, and just focus on the pictures themselves.. :) These pictures are from our long trip last August, where we travelled into Nepal from Tibet. Crossing the border was pretty interesting, and our stay at The Last Resort was fascinating, and a bit scary (you’ll […]

As a break from our regularly scheduled updates from our last trip, I’ll post about a (relatively) short trip to San Miguel de Allende in Mexico. I’m excited to share these pictures, as it’s definitely more colour than I’m used to photographing. Colour makes me happy. Click the link to find out more about this […]

The Friendship Highway in Tibet runs from Lhasa to the Tibet/Nepal border. Part of our tour package was to be driven down from Lhasa to the Nepal border, through Shigatse and Tingri before arriving at the border-town Zhangmu (Kodari.) The route is about 740km long, and takes a total of 15 hours or so of […]

Shigatse was probably our favourite town in Tibet. It’s not quite as “occupied” as Lhasa is, and retained a lot of charm and history. We found the people to be very friendly and a wander around the streets and markets allowed us to engaged with them more. They were always intrigued with seeing the pictures […]

There were only a few cities in our list of ‘have-to-see’ places, and Lhasa was one of them. What a culture-rich city. The Chinese presence there can be a little disheartening but with it brings a lot of modern blessings like well kept roads and such. Hit the jump for some pictures.

You might have noticed that the layout of the images in the last post was a bit different than with my post on Shanghai. This new layout was prepared using Storyboard, a Photoshop plugin that a friend of mine developed. I tried to see how well I could do without it and frankly, I gave […]
