My trip to Bratislava, which is a capital of Slovakia, was a part of the Golden Ring of Danube bus tour. I felt extremely comfortable with Slovakian culture. I think the fact that I’m a Ukrainian facilitated my positive outlook at a similar culture, which happens to be a Ukrainian neighbor as well.
A lot of people told me that Slovakia is a poor country, and I wouldn’t be able to see anything interesting. But, I didn’t get discouraged after hearing so much negative feedback. I went to Bratislava with an open mind, and I was pleasantly surprised that Slovaks were extremely friendly and helpful. And, Bratislava, in its own charming way, had a few architectural gems that could easily compete with some of the architectural splendidness in the capitals of its more sophisticated European counterparts.
Great shots, looks like a lot of fun!

The North of Thailand, centered in the city of Chiang Mai, is home to some of Thailand’s most breathtaking landscapes, from astonishing Buddhist temples located at the top of Thailand’s highest mountains to the waterfalls that run from underneath them. Also, the spectacular fauna that includes families of Elephants and the controversial Tiger Kingdom, where you can get up close to young tigers. Long story short, Northern Thailand is a truly magical place that should be in everyone’s bucketlist. Enjoy these photos of Wonders and get the inspiration you need to make this journey a reality!!!
Great shots, not sure about being that close to a tiger though…

I took a photo of my friends toes yesterday and told her I would send it to you.
Her toes are painted with the logo of her and her boyfriends’ handmade surfboard company called “Journey” https://www.facebook.com/journeysurf
Pretty cool way to get the logo “out there”!
Scared of diving? Who isn’t when it comes to facing something unknown, not knowing what to expect at all. But my mantra is ‘ to do what you’re afraid of ‘ , and I did, surprisingly I enjoyed it more than I expected to. Venturing to do what scares you , you’ll never know, for you might find something that you’d love, for your entire life. And I can’t wait for diving in Koh Tao in December!
Conquering fear is a biggie, thanks!

After a 600 Km long train ride from Ahmedabad, we arrived to Aurangabad without to many expectations about this town, and rightly so. Nevertheless, it is the best place to stay one or two nights if you want to see the caves of Ellora and Ajanta. For me, it was a nightmarish period, as I finally got the “Deli belly” thing. And I got it real bad. I was so weak that my wife had to push me up the stairs while we were exploring the caves and I had to stop and lie down every ten minutes. When one sees the shots taken, no one can guess the miserable state of the photographer.
The caves of Elora and Ajanta represent the apogee of rock carved religious architecture in India and are truly spectacular.
Fantastic shots, you are real trooper!

Another greeting from Florida, this time from a sailboat. It was a very ‘stealthy day’ as it was hard to distinguish the sky from the water. This enticed me to write the poem Blue-Gray, see: http://anarette.wordpress.com/2013/12/04/blue-gray-moments
