Since I can remember my family did travel around Europe and those experiences still form some of the best memories I have. Travelling used to be something special, where you returned home and told your friends about, stored memories in photo albums and in your collections of “things” from those countries. Meaningful to oneself foremost – Interesting to see for others! Travelling became something normal and in this fast paced world everyone travels and posts all the time. Unfortunately those special moments are no longer special! Well, not for a long time! Since we are bombarded with travel snapshots on so many social media sites, we are just consuming them, “liking” them for a brief moment, but not for eternity, like it used to be.
My travel blog here is mostly for myself and for sharing it with my friends. For myself, because there is no longer those precious photo albums, of which I still have many. For my friends, because I keep getting hammered with questions about this and that experience for a certain country and I got tired of re-typing the same list of what to see and what to do in a certain place.
2020 and 2021 were really difficult years for me since I could not travel at all to any of my favourite destinations in Asia. Naturally no new travel blogs have been published. I will hopefully resume travelling and blogging after this pandemic is over or somewhat under control.
On here I focus on Asian travel only. Old and outdated content on it’s own web site which covered more than 1200 Thai Temples since the year 2000 has finally been removed. My coverage of Khmer Temples inside Thailand was also getting outdated and has been removed. Our travel experiences to the Khmer temples of Cambodia are hosted on www.bayonsmiles.com)
New posts and changed content for my travel blogs are listed here:
