Galle – Colonial Traces in Sri Lanka

Sights of Sri Lanka: colonial town

Buddhist temples, wild elephants, barefoot pilgrims…typical and normal images for what a traveler to Sri Lanka expects…but Sri Lanka is much more complex. European colonists passed this place as well in search for spices, gold and other wealth. Portuguese, Dutch and English men were successive masters on Sri Lanka’s coasts, the latest barely left in 1948. They took as much as they could. But they did leave some as well. Among the good things that they left is the Fort in Galle city, an European colonial enclave… read more…

Wagah – the daily afternoon “war” between India and Pakistan

Lowering the flag ceremony in Wagah border point

One of the most famous, yet also bloodiest conflicts on the map of the world takes place between India and Pakistan. The painful Partition from 1948, when hundreds of thousands of people have died (some claim even a million), the 1965 and 1971 wars, the transformation of the two nations in nuclear nations, the bombings in both countries and the battle taking place on the Himalaya glaciers at over 5000 meters brought these two countries often on the headlines of the newspapers from all around the world. Thank God that the rivalry between the two nations is also transferred to more peaceful levels, like in cricket but the real show also takes place every night on the largest (and until recently the only) road border crossing point between India and Pakistan – in Wagah! read more…

The Orthodox Christmas in Kerala

Christmas… stuffed cabbage rolls, sausages, sponge cake, eating till you drop on the floor. Or in other cases, just a quick visit to Vienna for some Mulled wine, ginger bread, strawberries in chocolate sauce and walking down the strasse. Merry Christmas, ho, ho, ho, here’s Christmas! But how about a Christmas in a country that’s known to have another religion, far away and warm weather…and still, an Orthodox Christmas? Welcome to Kerala, India!!! read more…

Things to do in Nepal: visit the sadhu at Pashupatinath Hindu temple

If you wanted to say what is there to be seen in Kathmandu, only a full book would be enough. This is why I’d say let’s take a few steps outside the city as well and visit the outside-the-capital Nepal. And there are a lot of fabulous places – either if we talk about the Monkey Temple from above Kathmandu or the fascinating Buddhist temples of Boudhanath or the Hindu ones from Pashupatinath… read more…

Sights of Nepal: a sadhu in Kathmandu

Everest, Sherpa people, the beautiful crazy people that wrestle the eight-thousand-ers, victories and tragedies, mountains dressed in eternal snow and beyond, the mysterious Tibet…What can be more to visit in Nepal ? What the hell can one do there if he is not a climber to go and conquer the eight-thousand-ers? I also thought that Nepal meant only Himalaya before I started reading more about this fascinating nation. And only then have I found out that it is an extremely diverse and interesting country that is really worth visiting also by those who have no abilities to climb the eight-thousand-ers. Therefore I jumped on one plane’s wing and off I went to the mysterious kingdom, to Kathmandu… read more…

    Goa, the Indian seaside paradise

Well, you will find these images on the Asian continent, as well … it is Goa, a small part of Portugal transplanted thousands of miles off the Lusitanian shore, in India!
