Nun and believer in Lalibela.

I'll be honest: I don't remember whether it was actually me who took this photo or my talented travel companion at the time, Joe. Some days, I'm not in the mood for photography or I feel like I can't see the good shots. So I pass my camera on to a friend who might just have a point and shoot and gets a kick out of trying my gear, even if my gear is not professional rather "advanced enthusiast." This shot was taken with a Canon EOS 500. These days I'm using an Olympus Stylus s1. And if I get my wish I'll soon be able to upgrade to the massive Sony A7RII -- a wet dream for many traveling photographers. ~~~~~~~~ #throwback #Africa360 #ethiopia #instaafrica #lalibela #thisisafrica #streetphotography #portraitmood #pilgrim #lonelyplanet #traveldeeper #stayandwander #planetdiscovery #roamtheplanet #travel #beautifuldestinations #ilovetravel #traveladdict #travelphotography #forahappymoment #travelwithme #portraitoftheday #nun #ethiopianorthodox #yellow #colors_of_day #unescoworldheritagesite #travelwithme #notesontraveling #femaletravelbloggers #traveljournal

Beyond all of the ancient temples, my favorite memory of Luxor is this older gentleman, the Falafel Man. He had his stall set up just a few steps from our hotel. Every day we would go here and grab falafel sandwiches for a couple of cents.
Falafel Man had a bowl full of falafel mix (the green stuff) and would sell sandwiches until he ran out. Then he'd go home for the day.
He wrapped his sandwiches in old school books with writing, presumably from his kids.
One day when we said: "See you tomorrow!" he shook his head: "Ramadan."
So no more sandwiches and time to move on.

If that's alright with you I'll just publish a couple more portraits of believers in Lalibela.
The reason this site is so important to Ethiopian Orthodox Christians is that according to the story, the eleven churches were hewn into the red Rock by hand by King Lalibela himself after he visited Jerusalem. ~~~~~~~~ #tbt #Africa360 #ethiopia #instaafrica #lalibela #thisisafrica #streetphotography #portraitmood #lonelyplanet #traveldeeper #stayandwander #planetdiscovery #roamtheplanet #bbctravel #nationalgeographicyourshot #beautifuldestinations #ilovetravel #traveladdict #travelphotography #travelwithme #portraitoftheday #ethiopianorthodox #faithful #faith #unescoworldheritagesite #travelwithme #notesontraveling #femaletravelbloggers #traveljournal

And you thought only Angkor did picturesque trees growing on ancient walls?
This is Fasilides' Bath, built by Gondor's founder, Emperor Fasil(ides), and to this day location of annual Timkat (Ethiopian Orthodox Epiphany) celebrations.
But even without the water festivities going on, this small, 17th-century pleasure palace about 5km from the Royal Enclosure is worth the excursion. 🇪🇹🇪🇹🇪🇹👑🇪🇹🇪🇹🇪🇹 #africa360 #ethiopia #notesontraveling #gondar #gondor #unescoheritage #castle #banyantree #overgrown #thisisafrica #fasilidesbath #unexpectedjourney #exploremore #wonderful_places #lonelyplanet #planetdiscovery #keepexploring #shetravels #traveldiary #theglobewanderer #traveljunkie #travelandlife #travelwithme #travelersnotebook #travelphotography

Angkor Thom, the “Great City” about 1.5 km from Angkor Wat consists of several temples along with ceremonial places used by the Khmer kings.

Bayon is probably the best-known of the Angkor Thom temples and a must-see. The pyramid-shape is adorned with dozens (some say 200) Buddha faces.

Guess where?
Did you guess Ethiopia (anywhere in Africa, for that matter)? Well done!
This castle is part of the royal enclosure in Gondar. After Axum and Lalibela, before Addis Ababa, this city North of Tana Lake and East of the Sudanese border was the capital of the Ethiopian kingdom. Over generations, the new kings would build a new castle in the complex, leaving the previous one to the king mother and widow of the predecessor. 🇪🇹🇪🇹🇪🇹👑🇪🇹🇪🇹🇪🇹 #africa360 #ethiopia #notesontraveling #gondar #gondor #unescoheritage #castle #thisisafrica #royalenclosure #unexpectedjourney #exploremore #wonderful_places #lonelyplanet #planetdiscovery #keepexploring #shetravels #traveldiary #theglobewanderer #traveljunkie #travelandlife #travelwithme #travelersnotebook #travelphotography

My last picture from Lalibela, Ethiopia, is an iconic motif: the cross of St George church peaking up from the rock out of which it was carved by King Lalibela.
If you want to visit the 11 churches, I recommend strongly getting one of the licenced guides from the ticket counter/visitors center. Not only can they provide info on the history and the finer details, they will also be at your side so you don't accidently disrespect this incredibly spiritual site and may serve as translator if you want to strike up a conversation with pilgrims (outside the churches!). ~~~~~~~~ #Africa360 #ethiopia #instaafrica #lalibela #thisisafrica #traveldeeper #stayandwander #planetdiscovery #roamtheplanet #nationalgeographicyourshot #unesco #unescoworldheritage #ilovetravel #traveladdict #travelphotography #travelwithme #ethiopianorthodox #unescoworldheritagesite #notesontraveling #architecturelover #historybuff #femaletravelbloggers #iconic

My day in a nutshell: it started st***y, then it dragged on before it got better, and it ended with me laughing so hard I cried. And somewhere in between I finally pulled out my new camera and caught this fantastic lady cooking Pad Thai on Maha Chai Road. (taken on @SonyAlpha A7Rii with FE2/28)

Off the beaten path is where fairy tales await the open-eyed wanderer.
This dragon lives in an abandoned waterpark outside of Vietnam's old
capital, Hue. For a change of pace grab a picnic, hop on your scooter,
and head out for a chilled day by the water.

Vietnam's North is more than Halong Bay and Sapa. In summer, Vietnam's North is mainly wet (warm, but wet). In winter, it's cold with a chance of snow in the far North. So the best time to visit is September/October and March/April/May.

Vietnam is a backpacker's paradise. And once I got over the fear of the
organized driving chaos on Vietnam's streets, the $5-a-day scooter
quickly became my favorite means of exploration, so much so that I'm
planning to go back, buy a motorcycle, and discover the country all over
again.

The Royal Necropolis with the Valley of the Kings & the Valley of the Queens sits on the opposite of the Nile river of Luxor.
Photography is not allowed in any of the graves you can visit there and is even discouraged in the valleys themselves.
But in the Deir el-Bahari, Djeser-Djeseru – Hatshepsut's temple – more than makes of for this, the colossal stairs lead up to lofty balconies with beautiful frescoes. One of the most memorable frescoes depicts how the first donkeys came to Egypt from Ethiopia. Wouldn't you know?

Of course, I couldn't leave Aswan without seeing Abu Simbel, one of a few sites not to be swallowed by the reservoir named after Gamal Abdel Nasser, leader of the revolt against the Egyptian King and Egypt's second president. While other temples can now be found at the National Museum in Khartoum or Madrid, the Abu Simbel temples were moved to higher ground in the 1960s. BTW, Sudan opposed the creation of one the largest man-made lakes and calls the reservoir that sits to 17% on their territory Lake Nubia.
