Latest trip and new feelings......
Open your eyes and respect others.
I try not to use my own value and judgement on other cultures.
There are moments during my trips which are so memorable. It forever remains in my heart.....
First time in Europe in 1998
Had a birthday chinese meal in the middle of the mountains in Sri Lanka
First sight of the Acropolis which perched in the middle of Athens City...
Walking in the snow in the mountains near Nikko, alone....
Sunrise at Angkor Wat
Starry sky above River Nile on the way from Luxor to Aswan
Spent a nite in the Libyan desert, Milky Way was my blanket.....
Awaken by the Koran prayer 6am in Siwa Oasis
Lying on a path covered fully with cherry blossoms in Kyoto
Twinkle little stars like millions of diamonds in the sky, while enjoying body massage on the long white sandy beach of Boracay, with crispy sea breeze brushed lightly on my face....
Diwali Festival on the River Ganga, millions of tiny little lights on the water
First time to have the Himalayas before my eyes in Darjeeling!
Homestay on Lake Titicaca in Peru - 3800m - only then I know stars in the sky are as crowdy as people living on earth!
Awesome scenery and picturesque towns in Norway
