It was the year 2009 when I made an impromptu trip to Kerala. Traveled to few places including Alappuzha and Kumarakom. The following pictures were taken from Kumarakom. The owner of my guest house asked his children to take me to a secluded place, where I clicked these mesmerizing pictures. I was lucky to have witnessed such a dramatic sky. Beautiful memory!
As I always say the more you travel, the more you see. During a quick trip to Panjim, I encountered all these fascinating structures. Do you know why these structures exist? I have no clue. While some of these structures I spotted in the crowded markets, the other part of the capital city is also a sight to behold. I am talking about Panjim’s Latin Quarter. Brightly painted houses will take you to a by gone era. And the best part is you can explore all these places on foot. The whole idea was to get some unique images. And I am glad I was able to capture some interesting and vibrant houses in Panjim.
I am back with another article on Malaysia. This time famous Batu Caves. It is a limestone hill consist of three major caves and a number of smaller ones.
Dedicated to Lord Murugan, this vibrant temple has a series of caves and cave temples. It is believed that the caves are said to be around 400 million years old.
The largest and most popular cavern in Batu Caves is Cathedral Cave, which has a number of Hindu shrines beneath its 100-metre-high arched ceiling. One can spot two other cave temples at the foot of Batu Hill – the Art Gallery Cave and Museum Cave . These two temples have a number of Hindu statues and paintings.
One has to climb up the 272 steps to reach the top of the caves. The famous Murugan Statue is located at the foot of the Cave. The 42.7 meter statue is the tallest statue in Malaysia.
Batu Caves is located about 73.0km away from Kuala Lumpur airport. Have you explored this vibrant place ?
Brasov is cute, compact and colorful. A short getaway to this vibrant Romanian city made one of my life’s best trips. Cobblestone streets, amazing cafes and bars made it a perfect destination. Although I have shared a lot of stories and images of Brasov in the past on my blog, I could not resist myself from posting more images about this amazing city. When I arrived at Henri Coanda International Airport, Bucharest, my friend came straight from Brasov to receive me. And from there I started my Romanian sojourn. Have you been to Romania ? If yes, please do share with me your experience. I would like to listen your stories.
Being a thalassophile, I make sure my every international trip includes the ocean, rivers and lakes. My love for water bodies took me to Koh Samet near Bangkok. Its tranquility, turquoise water and sandy beaches make it a perfect holiday destination. If you are in Bangkok and want to explore a nearby beach destination, then do not forget to visit Koh Samet, a three-hour journey from Bangkok. Sharing some images of my short getaway to this beautiful island.
I had already shared my Moscow experience in my previous articles. I am sharing a few more images, which I came across while cleaning my hard disk and found them to be interesting. Most of the images were taken from a basic Canon 450D. During my three-day stay in Moscow, I used to spend a lot of town around Red Square. From bars to shopping malls, I tried to capture diverse locations to get a glimpse of Moscow’s daily life. It was a quick yet memorable trip for me. I am sure you will love these images. meбольшо́е спаси́бо
