The Baha’i Temple of Worship or more popularly known as the Lotus Temple, is situated in Delhi, the capital of India. My love for architecture has been growing within me for more than 20 years and thus, this temple holds a special place in my heart. The beautiful white marble curves like a lotus flower while extending outwards creating a cave downwards perceived as a shadow at the bottom. The building is supported by a foundation around which is surrounded by nine ponds in the shape of a pentagon.
Chidorigafuchi is located near the UK embassy (in Tokyo). I think that this is one of the most famous sakura spots in Tokyo. If you visit Tokyo during spring season (Sakura season is from the end of March through early April), you can get a chance to enjoy seeing the most beautiful sakura's in the world.
This picture is taken in Basra in the south of Iraq. Basra is a city overlooking the Gulf abounds with palm trees and wonderful places that contain scenic views, there are tourist areas for holidays where you can have barbecued fish on the beach. The palm trees are great for staying put of the high temperature In the summer, which can be harmful to you, you need to wear sun cream to withstand the high temperature. These places are very hot in the summer and very cool in winter so you have to be careful of temperatures.
Chiapas, a place I've always wanted to visit. In this state is the beautiful and ancient Palenque, a place full of ruins and pyramidal bases, in them are hundreds of stories of strong and brave men and women, one of them was Pakal the leader of that place.
It is a place full of vegetation and has a river of clear waters, on the banks of palenque is part of the jungle, in which you can find quite a lot of flora and fauna, and if you are lucky, you could find a colourful jaguar.
I have lived in Philadelphia for 21 years. I work in Centre of the City and these are the views I see as I commute to and from work. The skyscraper with the rectangle top is the Comcast 1 Tower and the one to the left of it with the white, lit stem at the top is the recently opened Comcast Tower. The long-distance shot of the skyline with all of the skyscrapers is shot from my neighbourhood in the South Philly neighbourhood of Point Breeze.
Hong Kong has over 100-years of history with the UK, its status as an overseas territory ending in 1999 when it was returned to the PRC. With its colonial history evident in its naming conventions (many things being named after Queen Victoria), English as an official second language a modern-day business hub, it is an ideal and easy place to visit in the region – and despite its reputation as a sprawling metropolis – has numerous landscapes, remote and rural areas to explore.
We spent a wonderful 2 weeks in South Africa, with so many highlights it’s hard to pick out the ones to write about!
We started at Cape Town, travelled around the Cape and then travelled along the Garden Route, with a couple of detours inland and to a game reserve. We stayed mainly in small guest houses and were struck by how friendly and helpful all our hosts were.
In November 2017 we spent an amazing two weeks travelling around Namibia, with its spectacular landscape, awesome wildlife, friendly people and great accommodation. Add to that an excellent, highly knowledgeable guide and lovely travelling companions (we were on a small group tour), and we had the recipe for a perfect holiday.
Having travelled to Egypt about 7 times already and even lived there for a short period of time, I have never been to Sinai before, not even Sharm el Sheikh which is so popular amongst western tourists. But since I like to think of myself as a traveller and not a tourist, I had no reason to go there. Only until one of my Egyptian friends, who runs an event agency in Cairo, asked if we wanted to join a group of his customers in a trip to Dahab.
Ho Chi Minh City, or as it’s more commonly known, Saigon. I got off of the sleeper train, I was unsurprisingly overrun by moto drivers looking for my business. Not wanting to spend another small fortune on a taxi, I agreed, and hopped on with a driver who would get me to my hotel for a mere 70,000d. Generally you pay less for a moto than a taxi, due to its…well, riskier nature…but at 4:30 in the morning, even Saigon traffic isn’t too overwhelming, and it was quite a pleasant drive through a city just waking up. My hostel was locked up for the night, but my driver yelled through the gate in Vietnamese until a sleepy receptionist appeared for just long enough to drop my bag into storage and tell me that I couldn’t check in until 2 p.m., before dropping back off to sleep. Not that I could blame him. I took his advice to “explore the city,” and by 5:00 I was out on the streets.
