Oh my Holi! Festival of Colors

I love Holi, I always look forward to the full moon day in the month of Phalgun. Holi is one of the major festivals in India. It is fun and very promising. It is the day where you don’t worry about what you wear, be careless and let the child in you escape. Women, men, kids enjoy throwing colored powder at each other, or sometimes water. It is the day where you are never too old to play and chase each other.

Kathmandu, Your Strange Bewildering Time

Kathmandu Durbar Square, or locally known as Hanuman Dhoka, is a photographer’s delight. Once a resident of Nepal’s Royal Family, this square comprises courtyards, palaces, and temples which showcase the skills of the Newar artist and craftsmen over several centuries. Though the place is beginning to lose its charm due to poor maintenance, it is still a pretty place for people watching if you don’t mind the crowd. It is best to see this place in late afternoon when you can see locals having their free time with friends, vendors selling everything from trinkets to vegetables, painters trying to capture moments, or travelers like you who found a time to relax and inhale the scene.

Galle, Sri Lanka -  Take me Back in Time

Missing the beach, we managed to escape our cubicles and found ourselves hitching to an overcrowded bus all the way to Galle. Galle is situated on the South-west coast of Sri Lanka. It’s a pretty place where history and culture are combined. Every structure is a great example of interchange between Asian tradition and European architecture. Walk aimlessly inside the fort and discover different kinds of architecture, a quirky restaurant, your favorite spot, or just random kids offering you a smile.

Enchanting Hampi

In guidebooks, Hampi is always one of the top places you should see in India. Located in the northern part of Karnataka, this seductive place is filled with temples, bazaars, ruins, lakes, and rice fields that give backpackers a great excuse for taking a week or two off their busy schedule. What makes it different from other places in India is that it’s laid back and doesn’t have this extreme vibe that you always see on places like Agra and Jaipur. A perfect way to go around in Hampi is by bike, motorcycle or even just by walking around. The views are breathtaking so you might want to bring your camera with you.
