The Songzanlin Monastery and Photos of Shangri-la, China

China has a funny way of chasing our emotions around.  One minute we’re completely annoyed by crowds, spitting, tour guides using megaphones as they lead their clients around natural sight, and just noise in general.  The next, we’re blown away by the sites.  I’d say, though, I’ve been more blown away than stressed.  And when I’ve been blown away, I’ve done nothing but wonder why people spend so...

Exposing Sunset and Sunrise at Dragon’s Backbone Rice Terraces in Tiantou, China

I caught the bus from Guilin to the village of Dazhai, which sits at the base of Longji Rice Terraces, a place us foreigners like to call “Dragon’s Backbone Rice Terraces”.

Photos of Angkor Wat: The “Other” Temples of Angkor Wat Archaeological Park

After spending a morning at the most touristy photo spot I’ve ever seen in my life, during sunrise at Angkor Wat, I decided that it was probably best I asked my tuk-tuk driver to start taking us to places that fewer tourists visit.  We asked to get farther away from the crowds and try to take us to places within Angkor Wat Archaeological Park that were, perhaps, less impressive, but more detailed and less restored. It was the...
