It's my second visit to Australia in ten years; this time exploring South Australia's cosmopolitan coastal capital of Adelaide. Unfortunately, it was only a short one week trip which coincided with pretty much the height of summer.
Thankfully, my arrival was met with a short respite from the heat; a somewhat cooler and more pleasant weather. As always, a southern hemisphere location means great directional lighting and clear - almost insanely surreal - blue skies.
Is it possible to visit and enjoy Bali while getting drown in all its natural charm and beautiful beaches sans the temples? I did just that, in a 6 days long escapade, criss crossing through the middle, southern and eastern parts of the island.
Not a single photo of the stereotypical temples.
It has been my first time visiting Sri Lanka, formerly known as Ceylon, an island situated south of India in the Indian ocean. This short 5 day trip to Sri Lanka saw me spending only 1 day in Colombo, while the rest of my time was spent at the vicinity of Mirissa beach, Galle Fort and the rest at Ella, the "Cameron Highlands" of Sri Lanka.
Unfortunately, the only camera I had with me; the Fuji X-T1 broke down on me on the very first day!
I've returned for my second Krabi escapade exactly after two and a half years. Only this time, I was here to shoot a pre-wedding session for a client.
Other than that, I spent my free time roaming the grounds of this luxurious hotel in search for photographs and another full day on a sunset cruise.
It was a couple of days before the big Raya holidays and I hit the road toward Pangkor for a stay at the Swiss-Garden Golf Resort & Spa Damai Laut. This resort is quite a distance away from the more well-known touristy Lumut town.
Built on a quiet peninsular on the Northern Straits of Malacca, the Swiss-Garden hotel is ensconced in a little corner with its own private beach.
