People around the World – Belgium

 Mysterious L, from seeingthrough35mm, invited us to take on a 5-day monochrome photo-challenge. It’s our fourth day and thinking of a post everyday has proven to be quite a challenge. Fortunately, our theme, ‘People around the World’ has kept my interest from waning.    People have always interested us. Especially, those who are content in the mundane. Besides, there…

Continuing with our theme – People around the World, we’re going to re-visit Japan today. Manga, sushi, bamboo groves, and gigantic wooden temples; seriously, what’s there not to love about Japan?

The Art of Getting Lost

After a whirlwind tour of Amsterdam, it was time to head to Venice. It might be faster and cheaper to fly between cities. However, the advantage of opting for the Euro-rail would be the picturesque scenery outside your window. Our train, starting from Paris, would pass through Switzerland in the morning. We woke-up early to…

24 Hrs in Amsterdam

The best way to follow-up Paris is to head straight for Amsterdam. After 4 days of back-to-back sight seeing; we chose to slow down the pace. Or at-least that’s what we tried to do. Thalys covers the distance – between the two cities – in about 3 hours. Technically, we had 36 hours in hand to explore Amsterdam. But, given…
