20 Best Photos of 2015.  Too many great memories for just 20 photos ... so I slipped in a couple of extras.  Hope you do not mind. Armenia I have been here every year since 2003.  And one place I always end up is in the heart of Yerevan in Republic Square.  The square was formally [...]

Great photos of Granada.  Granada sits on the edge of Lake Nicaragua and is draped in colonial magnificence.  Francisco Hernández de Córdoba, a Spanish Conquistador, founded this city in 1524. Granada’s name is inspired by its Spanish namesake and its Moorish appearance.  As an interesting historical side note, Nicaragua was once ruled by its President William [...]

Sagrada Familia - a must-see, is a landmark that defines a city. This basilica broke ground in 1882 in Barcelona, and is still under construction over a 100 years later. Some projections have Sagrada Familia finally being completed in 2026. The year holds a special meaning since it is the centennial of Antoni Gaudí's death. Antoni Gaudi [...]

What You Will See In The Peruvian Amazon

Vast.  Remote.  Infinity.  The Peruvian Amazon is an incredibly biologically diverse area.  There are more bird species in the Amazon than anywhere else in the world.  It is the size of California yet only 1.5 million people live there.  While the wildlife is abundant in the Amazon, it does not smack you in the face like [...]

Photos From Belan, Iquitos.  It is gritty. At 9 am, the locals are gathered in the neighborhood bar swilling moonshine. On the street dozens meander around giant stacks of plantains, searching for the best buy. The sky is a gloomy grey and the humidity hovers over the dense neighborhood.  Mototaxis prowl the dirty, chewed up streets. [...]

Great photos from Kiev.  Founded in 482 AD, Kiev, the capital of Ukraine straddles the Dnieper River. This cosmopolitan city numbers 3 million souls. The country was previously part of the Soviet Union until its independence in 1991. Ukraine has been the site of several revolutions in the recent past including the Orange and EuroMaidan Revolution.

Excellent Photos of Ljubljana

By |2019-05-28T12:40:44-05:00August 8th, 2015|Categories: Europe, Photos|

Enjoy these excellent photos from Ljubljana. Ljubljana is an exceedingly pleasant city that sits on the banks of the Ljubljanica river.  This 300,000 person capital of Slovenia was once part of Yugoslavia.  The city is highly walkable and well-preserved but lacking any must-see landmarks. This is the view of Ljubljana from the castle that overlooks the [...]

Great Photos Of Dubrovnik

By |2019-05-25T12:06:30-05:00June 14th, 2015|Categories: Europe, Photos|

Enjoy the great photos of Dubrovnik.  Dubrovnik is a perfectly preserved, walled city on the Adriatic Sea. This flawless stoned town is so pristine it borders near complete Disneyfication. The inhabitants have shrunk by 10,000 over the last 25 years. Every building seems to be either a guest house, restaurant, or souvenir store. If you look [...]
