I’ve taken thousands and thousands of photos these past 16 months but have been distilling them down to my favourites. These 100 represent some of the highlights from my trip. It’s crazy to look back and see where it all started!
Cordillera Huayhuash – a photo blog
This planet doesn’t stop amazing me with its beauty. I just finished a 10 day, 120km circuit around the Cordillera Huayhuash in Peru and I’m left gobsmacked by how incredible this planet is!
Trekking to Guane from San Gil, in Colombia
After leaving the capital of Colombia, I made my way north to a town called San Gil. If I’m honest with myself, I wasn’t expecting much, but boy, was I pleasantly surprised!
Hiking to the Batad Rice Terraces – a photo journal
Northern Luzon in the Philippines is home to the best rice terraces I’ve seen in the past 10 months. Couple this with quaint villages to hike through and sleep in, it makes the region really special. Here’s a photo blog of our journey to the terraces, and a little practical information as the internet is lacking in good advice for the region.
My 5 week Malaysian itinerary
My original plan was to only spend 3 or 4 weeks in Malaysia, but it’s so easy to love the country. It was actually difficult not to be tempted and extend my stay for a few more weeks. Here is my 5 week itinerary – maybe it will come in helpful if you’re planning a trip there.
Summiting Mount Kinabalu – a photo blog
Mount Kinabalu – the highest mountain in Borneo. She’s a beauty and a tough climb. I successfully made it all 4095.2 metres to the top and somehow survived the 8.7km walk back to the bottom, although my knees won’t agree with the usage of the word ‘successfully’. Here’s a photo blog of my hike.
Trekking to Inle Lake – a photo blog
The Shan Province of Myanmar is so incredibly beautiful. So beautiful that I have to think of other adjectives that don’t include the usage of the F word. I trekked from Kalaw to Inle Lake – a very scenic route through the countryside. This experience has solidified my belief that some of the nicest people in the world live in Myanmar – what a fantastic country!
Bagan – could it be the most spectacular place I’ve seen? A photo blog
The Ancient City of Bagan is easily one of the most incredible sites I’ve seen. Originally built between the 9th and 13th centuries, the historic site used to consist of 4,000 pagodas and monasteries. Today, about 2,200 remain and seeing them is just incredible. Here is a photo blog from my 4 days in this phenomenal place.
The Halong/Cat Ba conundrum
If you’ve been to Vietnam, or are planning a trip there, you know how much of a headache it is trying to arrange that picture-perfect trip to either Halong or Lan Tho Bay. For me, deciding on what to do left me in a state of mental purgatory for at least 2 days! I hope this post helps you out a little.
