About the Author – A traveller with a passion for photography & a photographer with a passion for travel.
Over the years , I’ve experimented with various types of travel looking for my passion and my stride both as a traveller and a photographer. I want those “authentic” travel experiences like photographing the old Cretan freedom fighter with the handlebar moustache wearing tall black cretan boots or being invited into a 450 year old Venetian house by its 92 year old owner up in the Cretan white mountains where tourists don’t go. Having masala chai in a modest family home in Jaisalmer in the Thar desert or being drawn into a humble family party in the back alleys of Gaziantepp are the experiences that leave great memories. And so, the multi-destination, up at 6am tour, has evolved to trips either on my own or with a few good friends. Trips where I can settle in, wander and just get to know a place. It is no longer a dash to see every tourist site. I visit what interests me and what I want to photograph. The rest I leave without hesitation or guilt.
This blog is to share the planning of my trips, the resources I use and of course, the wonderful experiences and images that have meaning to me.
