Postcard – Temples of Tikal

Posted by on March 22nd, 2013 in Central America, Feature, Guatemala, HDR, Photos, Postcards | 1 comment

It did require catching a bus at 4am, but getting to Tikal before the sunset and, more importantly, before the crowds was worth it. Watching a sun rise from an ancient temple almost all by yourself is an experience worth waking up at 4m. Some of the temples here go back over 2000 years, that is old by any standards. In my opinion, Tikal is the best temple to visit in Central America, way better than Chichen Itza, which I found a bit disappointing, despite it being the famous one. What’s your favorite...

Postcard – Boats by the Beach at Puerto Escondido

Posted by on December 14th, 2012 in Feature, Mexico, North America, Postcards, Puerto Escondido | 8 comments

Last few weeks before Christmas are always insanely busy. There is the company Christmas party and all the other pre-holiday drinking get-togethers; it’s busy at work and after work you’re desperately searching for those perfect Christmas gifts all the while trying to get all your things in order before the holidays and the years end! And all this is not helped by the fact that it’s freezing cold (has been for the last few weeks in London). So to be honest, I’d rather be somewhere warm and relaxing right now, like a beach. And the place that came to my mind was Puerto Escondido in Mexico. The first beach I went to on my last years RTW. I got stuck there for to two weeks. Just lying on the beach, swimming, learning to surf, eating pescadillas and drinking cold...

Postcard – Rice Fields of Thailand

Posted by on November 2nd, 2012 in Asia, HDR, Postcards | 10 comments

When I was driving around Thailand on my motorbike, I saw a lot of rice fields. And I quite like rice fields. They just always seem so serene. Just views that make you want to go and sit down and just look at it. This photo I took on my road trip to Pai. When I saw this, I just knew I had to stop for a photo, which did happen quite a few times on that road trip if I’m honest. And this photo will also start a new series on my blog I’m calling Friday postcard! Which is pretty much what it  says on the tin. Something to hopefully cheer up your Friday and make your mind wander…   Which country has the most beautiful rice fields in your...

Portugal Postcard

Posted by on October 20th, 2010 in Europe, HDR, Portugal | 0 comments

This postcard photo was actually taken on a golf course in Algarve, Portugal, thou I can’t remember the name of the course just now. But it really was a postcard day, green course and blue sky with white little clouds. Not even a breeze. Just like in the picture. We had already recovered mostly from the mornings hangover, thou I do admit that it wasn’t one of the my better rounds of golf. But still, a very nice day for a round of golf indeed. Portugal...
