Middle East Memories

Posted: 05 Jul 2014 12:45 AM PDT

I was travelling for the first time abroad of India and the destination was Dubai. There were lots of thoughts on the mind because going onsite on work usually means going to US , UK or Europe. All the news and things about Middle East always makes you feel skeptical.

I was wrong , I landed into this place , a year further travelled to most of the places in middle east looking at different cultures and people. I was fascinated and some how the time have spent here ( 1.8 yrs ) have become most memorable moments of my life. The spirit these people hold against all the severe climatic and poiltical conditions are commendable. Some things i can never forget are ...

greenery in Dubai

Dubai downtown built in mere 5 years transforming the desert into the most wanted travel destination

Building Burj Khalifa the tallest building of the world with fine sand at the bottom ...a architectural wonder.

The Plam Atlantis and Burj Al Arab , again an architectural wonder.

Prosperity of Oman even with the extreme weather conditions that prevail there. Can literally see electricty connections going oon top of the mountains for miles to reach a small place where there are only a few countable houses.

Jordan , one destination i can never forget may it be for the dead sea which defies the science or petra which takes you out of this world or the bedouins who are so hospitable. Riding through the Jordan border can literally see jeeps with mortars and the whole militray unit side by but who can visualise that there used to be so much of trouble around this border ( along side Israel ).

Istanbul , The joy , pomp and gaiety of the city with its multicultural presence or Hagia Sophia where you can see a mosque and a church together.

"Amongst all this one thing i found common was the spirit of the people barring cultures and boundaries"

These images depict my unforgettable memories of my first travel abroad and am happy to share it !

Sebastian Florida really knows how to put on a parade. This year the parade was longer than 2 hour with many floats and flags everywhere. This parade has become one of the best around with the handing out of freeze pops and water everyone was well hydrated. I can't wait for next year. "Happy 4th Of July Everyone"

The forever standing Pyramids

Posted: 03 Jul 2014 08:06 AM PDT

It just never gets old. The strange energy that undertakes you when you visit the ancient pyramids, no matter how many times you have seen them. It hits you every time that whatever you thought you know about the world is probably a tiny, tiny piece of a never ending story.

Wandering in rural China

Posted: 03 Jul 2014 07:30 AM PDT

Last week I was in China visiting the Wulong Karst which is a Unesco World Heritage site. The scenery is not just beautiful but somehow unreal and mysterious. Felt like I was one of those legendary explorers wandering in rural China.
