I have the good (most of the time) fortune to travel a lot, and I like photography. Here are some of the results... all my own.

The heart of Bhutan's government, the 17th century fortress/monastery dzong in the nation's capitol Thimphu. Large dzongs can be found on strategic spots throughout the country. They used to be occupied by nobles and warrior monks. Judging from the vast array of weapons exhibited in the dzongs, the monks were no strangers to swords and guns. In Bhutan, Buddhism was not a peaceful religion... * * #bhutan_ig #bhutandiaries #landofthunderdragon #punakha #himalayas #bhutanesearchitecture #asiago #asiatravel #travels #travelblog #travelfar #tagsta_travel #instatravel #luxurytravel #wanderlust #bucketlist #globetrotter #remotedestinations #discover_earth #awesome_earthpics #wonderful_places #amazingdestinations #youmustsee #princely_shotz #photooftheday #folkcreative #nothingisordinary #instago #instagood #tagstagram at Thimphu, Bhutan

Inside Paro's fortress monastery. Bhutanese are only allowed to enter monasteries/official buildings if they wear their traditional dress, or monk's robes. Bhutan was isolated from the world until quite recently - there were no paved roads in the country until 1961 - and the King has decided that modernization will only make his people happier if it does not come at the cost of the country's own cultural traditions. * * #bhutantravel #thimphu #himalayan #pictureperfect #travelawesome #travelstoke #travelpics #travelingpost #travellingthroughtheworld #bestintravel #travelphotography #lonelyplanettraveller #traveladdicted #lovetravel #suitcasetravel #allaboutadventures #speechlessplaces #visualwanderlust #adventureculture #followmefaraway #worlderlust #experiences #seetoshare #athomeintheworld #earth_deluxe #theculturetrip #igshotz #beautifulmatters #timeoutsociety #visualart at Paro, Bhutan

The 17th century Punakha Dzong, in Bhutan's pre-1955 capital. It is a combination of a monastery, administrative centre and royal palace. The King's mother, who lives there, actually greeted me when she left her quarters (I was the only foreigner around). While I was there, a hundred+ monks were chanting, accompanied by the deep vibrations of huge gongs. An out of this world experience... * * #bhutan #bhutantrip #paro #himalaya #monastery #amazingasia #asiatrip #asianarchitecture #travel #travelbug #igtraveling #ilovetravel #ig_travel #travelphoto #explorer #discoverglobe #goingplaces #adventurer #bucketlistadventures #earthpix #exklusive_shot #master_shotz #bevisuallyinspired #instacool #photoart #shutterbugs #photoaddict #worthit #worldheritage #culturetrip at Punaka, Punakha, Bhutan

A couple of photos of Singapore's Gotham building, a 144 metres high office building with a marvellous bar (see photos) on the ground floor. Art Deco mixed with Egyptian motives, and full of art. On the first photo, behind the golden crane (meant to bring wealth) pointing in the direction of the owner's birth town in China, you see Botero's "dressed woman"; Salvador Dali's snail woman is in a later photo. * * #singaporetravel #artphoto #publicspace #urbanexploration #urbanphoto #urbanlandscape #urbanlife #citylife #cityview #citytrip #citywalk #cityscapes #cityviews #architectureporn #architecture #architecture_view #architecturelover #skyscrapers #architecturephoto #moderndesign #modernstyle #architecture_greatshots #urbanstyle #urbanarchitecture #wowfactor #ilovetravel #wanderer #travelblog #imposing at Parkview Square

It took just 4 years and 4 months, and USD 1.6 billion, to complete Kuala Lumpur's iconic 452 metres high Petronas towers. The two consortiums that each built one of the towers had, on average, 4 days per floor. During 6 years from 1998 to 2004, this was the world's tallest building. * * #malaysia #malaysiatravel #publicspace #urbanexploration #urbanphoto #urbanlandscape #urbanlife #citylife #cityview #citytrip #citywalk #cityscapes #cityviews #architectureporn #architecture #architecture_view #architecturelover #skyscrapers #architecturephoto #moderndesign #modernstyle #architecture_greatshots #urbanstyle #urbanarchitecture #wowfactor #ilovetravel #wanderer #travelblog #imposing at Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

The waterfall at Sidu is right next to the Southern ring road. A simple, slender fall, and apparently the villagers find it so normal to have falls like this in their backyard that there isn't even a parking place where to stop and make pictures. You just have to halt on the side of the road... * * #icelandscape #icelandtrip #iceland🇮🇸 #northernsoul #naturemagic #dreamland_arts_of_nature #lensloves_nature #pocket_nature #ig_nature_naturally #show_us_nature #moodmagic #ethereal_moods #moody_captures #moody_tones #dscvr_earth #wonderful_earthpix #soulfulmoments #the_mirror_of_our_souls #tmoosouls #ig_eternity #fa_fadeaway #heart_imprint #edp_arts #artofmystery #follow_the_grey_sky #allthingsofbeauty #allbeauty_addiction #pretty_shotz #bestcaptureglobal at Iceland
