I knew Cambodia had beaches, but I hadn’t really heard much about them or how beautiful and relaxing they were. The bus ride to Sihanoukville from Seam Reap was daunting at nearly 13 hours over dirt roads and paved roads that were not much better. When we finally made it we were faced with aggressive tuk …

Angkor in Photos
The Angkor complex is one of my favorite places. The temples and structures are truly amazing. There is little I could say to do them justice, so I will simply post some photos I took. I literally took over 1000 images over a three day period of touring the complex. This was my second visit …
Weekly Photo: Deer Cave, Borneo
Deer Cave is absolutely massive. Marketing folks at the Mulu tourism board like to say you could put an entire fleet of 747s inside the cave, and it’s true! If you look closely, you can see two people staring at the bat poo on the boardwalk near the bottom of the beam of light (there …
Daily Photo: Otres Beach Sunset, Sihanoukville, Cambodia
Otres Beach is one of the seven beaches around Sihanoukville in Cambodia. The sunsets are breathtaking. I snapped this photo on my friend’s camera when I just couldn’t stand it anymore and had to capture the beauty.

Yehliu is outside of Taipei to the north. I took the train up with my friend to explore the really cool rock formations. We hiked around until it started to rain. I had a blast seeing all of the really cool rock formations. There are only a few places on earth with these types of …
Daily Photo: Copacabana Beach, Rio de Janiero, Brazil
The day before this photo was taken I was on the beach reveling in New Years celebrations with literally millions of people. Amazingly, the beach was completely cleaned as if nothing had happened the night before. There were far fewer people than usually, but it was still a classic Rio scene.
Daily Photo: Workshop, Antigua, Guatemala
Walking around Antingua in Guatemala, I saw this workshop. It was the height of the day but the colors still came through in the photo and it was really cool to peak inside. Unfortunately, everyone was resting since it was so hot so I didn’t get to see them doing anything.
Daily Photo: Ruins in Casco Viejo
Casco Viejo is the old quarter of Panama City. There are hundreds of old colonial mansions, some ruins and others remodeled, all mingled together. I had a great time just walking around and exploring for the afternoon.
Daily Photo: Lanterns in Istanbul, Turkey
I was walking through the markets in Istanbul and came across these beautiful lanterns. The shop keepers are really nice and offer you tea when you are shopping. I didn’t buy anything but really enjoyed chatting with shop owner over tea.
Daily Photo: Butterflies at Igazu Falls
The butterflies land in small puddles to drink the water rich in minerals and salts that are brought up from the ground after a rain. I spent quite a bit of time trying to get the right shot. I was kneeling down and getting my knees rather muddy before I finally managed to snap this …
