Tasting the world one meal at a time

What you’d rather be seeing – Japan

The last country of the Excellent Adventure was far from boring.  In fact this was one of countries I enjoyed photographing the most. I have split this post into people, cityscapes, temples/shrines and finishing with Mount Fuji.  Japan was so beautiful and focuses heavily on shrines and temples I actually had to balance the number […]

What you’d rather be seeing – Vietnam

Six weeks riding motorbikes from Saigon to Hanoi was one of the best things we’ve done on our year, an adventure within the adventure that delivered memories for a lifetime.  The Ho Chi Minh trail in the mountains bordering Laos was incredible but the countryside was at its most amazing due to the people and […]

What you’d rather be seeing – San Telmo, Buenos Aires

 In March 2015 we were in Buenos Aires, Argentina and I spent an afternoon in the grungy suburb of San Telmo focusing on photography and in particular portraiture.  Due to all the top summary posts of South America at the time I didn’t publish these images. We’re on the home stretch of this trip and […]

What you’d rather be seeing – Cambodia

Just another country? Not at all, yes a smaller country geographically but it has so much of past glory and present challenges.

PAST (The former greatest civilisation in the world):                      PRESENT (A nation rising from significant challenges):          […]

What you’d rather be seeing – Angkor Temples, Siem Reap, Cambodia

The temples of Angkor Wat and around were so photogenic that there is no way we could put all of the good pictures in the couple of posts we did.  So here is the best twenty.  Enjoy. Statues and vistas:          People:               Grand temples, fine detail:           Temples overgrown:         […]

What you’d rather be seeing – Thailand

Thailand. Close your eyes a minute and what do you see? Cheap beers, bars, beaches, ladyboys, nightlife? Many do and many are so wrong. Like judging a book by its cover, the pages have revealed so much more; Thailand deserves a second look; a proper look. This is what we saw in the short time […]

What you’d rather be seeing – Laos

A fantastic couple of weeks in Laos, even though we were only in two main locations we managed to fit a lot in.  Below are my favourite pictures and my first video in this category from the short time we were there. Check out the other pictures from previous countries under “what you’d rather be […]
