Travel Photos & Pictures From Around The World

These travel photos and travel pictures are the ones that I have taken from around the world. Having taken travel pictures and travel photos in just over 80 countries now I share them all here. In the future I do plan on posting one travel photo a day to catch up on all of the pictures I have taken from around the world.

Architecture in Asuncion, Paraguay

The architecture in Paraguay, similar to many countries in South America, is a remnance of a the beauty that once was in South America.  Many cities in the southern continent are now falling apart due to negligence, corruption, and lack of maintenance.  I can compare a few countries that fit into this category alongside Asuncion including […]

The Somaliland Countryside

Somaliland

There is something very unique about the countryside in Somaliland,  the baron desert where camels roam has a very unique feel to it.  There was even a hysterical afro truck that we passed along the way which I will be posting soon.  This mountain (or hill) range stretches all the way from Somaliland to Ethiopia. […]

Orthodox Christian Priests in Gorgora, Ethiopia

I have never been exposed to Orthodox Christianity other than my recent trip to Ethiopia.  It was very interesting to see a completely different side of Christianity all throughout the country.  The two men above are found in a very small monastery just outside the popular city of Gondar (the Camelot of Ethiopia).  The monastery was located […]

Architecture in Salvador, Brazil

There is something special about Salvador, Brazil.  The city has a lot of history being the first slave market in the new world and even being home a very popular Michael Jackson music video (click here for post).  I was lucky enough to visit Salvador for the people’s Carnival in Brazil.  You can find much […]

Gorilla Hiding In The Bush: Uganda

This gorilla in Uganda was very elusive, his name is Rafiki which means good friend.  When we started gorilla tracking we didn’t know whether we were going to have to walk 2 hours or 6 hours to arrive where the gorillas were.  They generally move a minimum of a few kilometers everyday.  He was just hanging […]

The Dakata Rock that literally hangs by an inch is one of the popular things to see around Harar.  The Rock is held in place by a very small area with the rock at its base.  Rumor has it that during the military rule in Ethiopia soldiers would come and try and knock the rock […]

Hindu Temple in Paramaribo, Suriname

There aren’t just Hindu temples in Paramaribo, Suriname, there is an entire slew of cultures that come together in the country.  It is absolutely fascinating to experience and see, when the entire world is fighting about religion Suriname really sets the example for peace and harmony with cultural diversity.  While there are many places around […]

Penguin Fight at Cuverville Island, Antarctica

The penguins at Cuverville Island, Antarctica aren’t an aggressive bunch, the problem is that there is little real estate for each penguin family to have a nest.  I loved to watch the penguins try to walk through the entire penguin colony at Cuverville Island because it was similar to playing Frogger.  Each penguin had to […]

A Church In Harar, Ethiopia

This is one of the first scenes that I saw in Harar.  The city is extremely small but there is something very special about the city.  Harar is the 4th holiest city for Muslims and ironically, just like Jerusalem, it is in a country with a different religious majority (Christian in Ethiopia).  The city is […]
