An Evening At Karon Beach

I normally do not take my professional camera at cafes but this was right after my shoot. This pandemic is definitely making me miss all the travel and delicious food. These photos were taken at Karon Beach.

Enjoy Phuket Thailand my friends!

Pompeii – Italy

Pompeii was an ancient Roman city which got buried under the nearby Mount Vesuvius’s eruption in A.D. 79.
It was then excavated in 19th century with the help of many archaeologists and architects. From its restored architecture, we can figure out the lavish lifestyle of romans, the villas they had, their interest in art and fresco, and the kind of utensils they used.
Urban planning is one of the key highlights of this ancient city with streets, squares and trade hubs properly planned. It is situated in the province of Naples near the sea, which shows it was an important ancient city for trade and business.
Objects buried beneath Pompeii were well-preserved for almost 2,000 years as the lack of air and moisture allowed little to no deterioration. However, once exposed, Pompeii has been subject to both natural and man-made forces, which have rapidly increased deterioration.
It is one of the most popular tourist attraction in Italy and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

I had a limited time to photograph Pompeii with light quickly disappearing but tried to cover the most of it.
Hope you will enjoy the photographs.

Best,

PAKISTAN – Best Holiday Destination For 2020 says Condé Nast Traveller

Best Holiday Destination For 2020 says Conde Nast Traveller

PAKISTAN

“The adventure traveller’s must-visit goes from strength to strength

Thwarted by tales of terrorism and Taliban rule, Pakistan’s tourism industry has been stymied for the past two decades. But ancient valleys, relaxed visa restrictions and a high-profile royal visit in the offing mean this remarkable country is finally getting the focus it deserves.

Because this is a place of exquisite landscapes, where green spaces are overlooked by towering mountains. In fact, Pakistan has more peaks taller than 22,965ft than China and Nepal combined, making it an almost magnetic spot for adventure travellers and intrepid hikers. Visitors can follow in Michael Palin’s steps while traversing the 12,250ft Shandur Pass, home to the world’s highest polo field, or meet with the Kalash people of the Hindu Kush, famed for their cowrie-shell headdresses and brighter-than-bright embroidery. In Lahore, the sight of 100,000 worshippers crammed into the sandstone 17th-century Badshahi Mosque will leave you breathless, while Mughal-era architectural masterpieces stand resplendent on bustling street corners.

‘Having operated tours in Pakistan since the late 1990s, I’ve had a ringside seat to its troubled tourism industry, but finally it seems to be improving,’ says Jonny Bealby, founder and CEO of adventure-tour operator Wild Frontiers. ‘A focus on security measures, which saw the British FCO lift its advice against travel to large parts of the north, and the election of Imran Khan, who has vowed to increase international tourist numbers, has already had an impact,’ he says.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are also due to visit this Autumn to witness the magic of the mountains first-hand, while many of the frustrating permits previously required to travel here have been dropped. Hardy visitors will find that little has changed since Mughal times – with the peaks’ gemstone mines, fairy meadows and winding trails worn into the ground by heavy-laden yaks – while the Karokoram, stretching upwards from the north-west frontier and carved into the ancient bedrock, is one of the world’s most astonishing highways.”
