Canadians love Hallowe’en. While we may celebrate Halloween in full force, there are a lot of places around the world that I would love to spend the night for a good scare.

Not many of us can afford a luxury hotel room let alone an outrageously expensive presidential suite: but we all love to dream. When this post came across our desk from Escape Travel, we thought it’d be fun to share a little fantasy with you on a Saturday morning. Who doesn’t want to take a [...]

It has been many a year since Dave and I celebrated Christmas on actual Christmas day with our families. We always tend to be traveling during the winter months and have yet to put down any roots to start a regular holiday tradition. So here we are celebrating another Christmas by ourselves in yet another country. This year it is Thailand and we will be kickboxing through the entire holidays. That will definitely help to take our minds off of not being at home.

Though some may prefer to hibernate, there are others who do not wish to fall prey to the boredom of cabin fever during the long winter season. The sense of fun coupled with the spirit of adventure of winter enthusiasts has given rise to diverse outdoor activities that are truly entertaining. Hence, to experience the excitement of Canadian winter, you need to participate in the following activities…
Malaysia’s intrinsic colourful contrasts climax in spectacular Kuala Lumpur. The vast capital city is a zenith of culture and a dynamic urban metropolis. KL pulsates with shiny skyscrapers, feverish wet markets, lively pedestrian malls, venerable mosques and a wonderful, chaotic array of restaurants, bars and nightclubs.
With the advent of digital cameras most people don’t really think of photographing in Black and White. Well I think people are missing out. If you look back over time you will see that some of the most striking and evoking photographs were taken in Black and White. It gives images a certain impact. Ansel Adams is a perfect example.

We thought it would be fun for this Photo Story to compare some of our photo’s to those of National Geographic.
