6th St & Ellis St, Augusta, GA 30901, USA
A blue horse on a balcony? Why not..."Seattle Blue" is the name of this mosaic-covered-statue by artist Paul Pearman, located on a quirky corner in Augusta, GA, a riverside city of underrated architectural history... This brick building was built...
471-4 Geumho-dong, Sokcho-si, Gangwon-do, South Korea
Between the mountains and the sea, across the country from Seoul, Sokcho is a seafood-lover's dream. In the city's downtown Jung-ang Market, (one of several markets in town), this husband-and-wife team caught my eye: with a baseball game on in the...
21 Namdaemunsijang 4-gil, Namchang-dong, Jung-gu, Seoul, South Korea
Among the biggest and most chaotic markets in Korea, Seoul's Namdaemun Market is the capital's oldest, dating to the 1400s. Today you can find ANYthing here, if you're willing to brave the crowded alleyways tucked in behind skyscrapers:...
Comércio, Salvador - BA, 40015-080, Brazil
The São Joaquim market in Salvador, Brazil, offers a broad spectrum of merchandise. At the far end of the market you can even purchase live animals. While walking through this area I saw goats, chickens, ducks and doves. A baby goat costs around...
Avarua District, Cook Islands
Headed to the Cook Islands, I was expecting to see mostly imported beers from other countries, like Heineken, Steinlager and so on. However, to my surprise and enjoyment, I discovered that Rarotonga had a microbrewery making a pair of craft beers...
Na Kampě 508/15, 118 00 Praha-Malá Strana, Czechia
On most days in Prague, it feels like every tourist in town has gathered on the Charles Bridge. And for good reason — this 14th-century cobblestone span crosses the Vltava River, connecting the Old Town with the Lesser Town (Mala...
Bonampak, Chis., Mexico
The classic Mayan site of Bonampak, located deep in the jungles of Chiapas, Mexico, holds one of the most unlikely and important discoveries in the history of Mayan archaeological investigation. The story of the wall murals is a story of an...
Zámecká, 284 03 Kutná Hora, Czechia
Always wanted to visit a bone ossuary. Not really sure why, except they just seem so bizarre. Finally got to Sedlec at Kutna Hora, Czech Republic. It didn't disappoint in the bizarre factor. I was so fascinated by how carefully arranged the bones...
Ferdinand Bolstraat 10, 1072 LJ Amsterdam, Netherlands
As an admirer of graffiti, I have always enjoyed seeing the large scale productions by The London Police. However, I have only seen their work in magazines and on graffiti videos, because they primarily get-up in Europe. So, I was very excited to...
Kumai, Sungai Kapitan, Kumai, Kabupaten Kotawaringin Barat, Kalimantan Tengah, Indonesia
Hiring a klotok (private boat) to explore Tanjung Puting National Park on the island of Borneo is like being on Disneyland's Jungle Boat Cruise in real life. Klotoks are hired in the riverside town of Kumai and come equipped with a guide, captain...
Tha Nat, Damnoen Saduak District, Ratchaburi 70130, Thailand
The Damnoen Saduak is a famous market for locals and tourists located about an hour's drive from Bangkok, Thailand. The floating market is a relic from a past time in lower Thailand's history, when river travel was the preferred means of...
Khao Phang, Ban Ta Khun District, Surat Thani 84230, Thailand
Waking early to the loud morning chorus of the Thai rainforest is an amazing experience. Whooping gibbons, honking hornbills and buzzing insects compete to fill the air waves with their loud songs to the new day. The floating bungalows on Lake...
Conzelman Rd, California, USA
Hiking in the Marin Headlands. Never a dull vista. One of those beaches is a nude beach. Oh, and there's the beautiful Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco in the background.
I traveled to the gem Chefchaouen in 2007 with six peers from my study abroad program. Half the excitement of Chefchaouen is getting there – a ferry from southern Spain across the strait of Gibraltar to Africa, a walk across the border to Morocco...
294 Kiyomizu 1-chōme, Higashiyama-ku, Kyōto-shi, Kyōto-fu 605-0862, Japan
Kiyomizu-dera on Mount Otowa is one of the most famous temples in Japan, a place that appears in every sequence of Japanese travel photos. The landscape is all cherry trees and forest; it is among Kyoto's loveliest spots. The current structure...
Gran Car, Santa Ana e/ Marino y Boyeros, Nuevo Vedado (Ministerio de Transporte), La Habana, Cuba
America isn't the only country infatuated with the automobile. Cuba loves its cars too. What's considered a classic car in the United States is just a daily driver in this country limited to fixing up fixer-uppers due to trade issues. I'm betting...
Ghat Darwaza, Pink City, Jaipur, Rajasthan 302003, India
Ancient temples of splendor may lure travelers to India, but it's the colorful people whom you will long remember. During Holi celebrations, street markets burst with pinks, purples and greens. In Jaipur, women rule the streets as they barter and...
Yaxchilan, 29950 Ocosingo, Chis., Mexico
An hour boat ride along Usumacinta River on the Guatemala border can take you to Yaxchilan, Palenque’s less visited cousin in the tropics of Chiapas, Mexico. Twelve-thousand-year old architecture brings many questions to mind. But at this moment,...
Arashiyama Genrokuzancho, Ukyō-ku, Kyoto, Kyoto Prefecture 616-0007, Japan
In western Kyoto, there is a very large forest of bamboo. As you can see in the photo, the shoots grow very tall, making those who stroll by look quite small. I'm sure there are times when this road is crowded, but when we were there, people were...
