The Antelope Slot Canyon in Page Arizona.

Inside the Antelope Slot Canyon

Wandering inside the Antelope Slot Canyon is kind of going into an unknown but wondrous world where the sun makes a stunning chiaroscuro on every slit that opens up like slithering waves carved and perfected by time. These are just few photos I’m showing you for now. I’m kinda lazy to resize them all for […]

Portraits of Cubans and Their Way of Life

When traveling, I have this habit of talking to locals and asking them for their portraits whatever they are doing. I’d ask their names and I’d give mine even if they won’t ask. Most of the time, I got affirmative answers but there were few times I was refused but they’re willing to do it […]

Baikal Lake – Where Christians and Buddhists Meet Shamans

If you had one week to spend somewhere away from the cold winter in Paris, where would you go? Probably, most of you, would buy a ticket jetting off to a tropical island, drowning in margaritas, burying your feet in the sand and basking in the sun. But NOT my friend Veronica and her husband. […]

View from the top – Cairo to Amman

The trip from Toronto to Cairo via EgyptAir was 10 hours. I actually didn’t mind the long haul as we were comfortably seated in Business/Executive Class, my very first experience to be treated like an Egyptian Queen. Sorry, Cleopatra, you’re so dead now!

I have yet to meet someone whose bucket list doesn’t include climbing the magnificent Great Wall of China, one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World. It was built to ward off enemies. The photos you see of this architectural feat are stunning but when you are in there walking, climbing its brick-layered structure, […]

At the Maple Syrup Festival yesterday at Elmira, my friends and I joined the Maple Syrup Sugar Bush Tour just outside the township. It cost us $5.50 each which included transportation to and from the sugar bush. The weather was already a bit windy when we decided to go and we were dressed like it’s […]

The Taste of Maple Syrup Festival in Elmira

Canada is synonymous to maple syrup. No wonder, its flag bears a maple leaf on it. For 49 years, a little town in Waterloo, called Elmira, has been hosting the Maple Syrup Festival which the Guinness Book of Records recognized as the World’s Largest Single Day Maple Syrup Festival! An hour and 20 minutes from […]

The Joys of Traveling Solo

While it doesn’t suit everyone’s tastes (because we are basically social beings) there is a lot to be said about traveling solo, particularly backpacking alone. If you’re the adventurous type that enjoys your own company, being out on some of the world’s best trails, or even some you create on your own, can be very […]
