I mean … just look at it! There is nature, and then there is NATURE! You are looking at a scene from the Lofoten Islands in Norway – one that was just too stunning. We had to climb from our Rorbu (a traditional fishing hut) onto a little nearby hill for about 10 min. That was enough to be rewarded with stunning views all around. I was rather angry that I cut off that straw ball thingy at the bottom, but the vista still tells you enough. It tells you to pack your bags and book your next flight to the Lofoten Islands!
New Photo: Can I Interest You In Some Cloth
While shipping across the Nile in Egypt, little boats would pull up alongside our boat. Note, that our boat was around 8 meters high – those boats … were not. So they would pull up, pull out anything from headscarves to carpets, ask (screamingly) if anyone is interested – and if they even slightly assume that you or anyone else that’s looking is interested, they’d pack the object in a plastic bag, seal it, and literally throw it up onto the deck of our boat. You are then expected to remove the item from the bag, place the money in the bag, and throw the bag back down.
Some of the people we traveled with didn’t have any interest – but found a bag at their feet either way. They felt guilty that the guy went through all the trouble and bought some scarves – at least you will always remember where you bought them! Also, props to the aiming skills!

New Photo: The Island of Itsukushima
Itsukushima, also known as Miyajima, has been the single most beautiful place I have seen to date. Sitting just off the coast to Hiroshima, the place is an absolute tourist attraction – granted – but once the sun lowers and the tourist boats leave the harbour, the little village on the island becomes a peace-haven. …

New Photo: A Ride Through Venice Driving through the canals of Venice… Sounds great, right? Well, unless you are 1.64 m tall and sit on the right side of the Gondola seats! Did you know that they have an intended imbalance, so that the right hand side of the boat is lower in the water …
