Sri Lanka

Well Sir Roger, it's almost that time again. Off to Sri Lanka this time the mission includes an elephant orphanage, wild life park, heritage tea factory, a number of temples and a train ride into the mountains, which I am looking forward to. I rendezvous with some locals on my arrival for lunch and will make sure I pick up a gift for them before I travel. The case is all packed, the cameras ready and the countdown begins.

Alphabet Travel Quest continues

In a previous post I outlined my current travel quest, which is letters of the alphabet, with the letters remaining as D, P, Q, Y and Z. The letter D will soon be retired with a visit to Denmark. As part of this trip the other destinations visited include Iceland, Greenland and the Faroe Islands. I am especially excited about visiting Greenland and the Faroe Islands because of their remoteness and these are not common places for Australians to visit. Both places as well as Iceland should contain some spectacular scenery and I am travelling to some remote parts of Iceland that should give some great photos.

Kind regards,

Top Ten Most Photogenic Places

For my most recent trip to Borneo and Brunei I visited the Omar Ali Saifuddein Mosque in Brunei and this is easily one of the most beautiful places I've seen - incredibly photogenic.

So here is my top ten most places I like to photograph the most.

Siem Reap, Cambodia - home of Angkor Watt, Bayon, Ta Prohm and other amazing places

Omar Ali Saifuddein Mosque, Brunei

Sedona, Arizona, USA


Borobodur, Indonesia

Uluru, Australia

Galapagos Islands, Ecuador

Venice, Italy

New York, USA

Capetown, South Africa

The last three will likely fall off this list when I get to Egypt, maybe Pagan in Myanmar, Petra in Jordan, Peru, India and the Greek Islands. And a few places you thought might have been on the list but are not - the Grand Canyon, London, Paris and Rome. Ottawa in Canada just missed out.
