People travel for many reasons. Some claim that they like exploring new cultures and seeing how other people live. Other people say that traveling to distant countries help them forget about problems of their daily lives. There are even some loony voyagers that cannot live without adrenaline pumped through their veins by dangerous deeds and crazy adventures. That’s fine, every reason to travel is equally good. Except for eating and taking photos, of course. Serious travelers doesn’t travel because of food or snapshots, right?
I guess I have to speed up my creative process. I mean, the written part. The other part, the one connected with taking photos, is doing surprisingly well lately. I have a lot of photos from my recent trips to Italy, Malaysia and Thailand, I’m uploading some of them to my Flickr photostream (link on the left) and I’m feeling that my photography, while slower than I would like, is constantly improving. I just can’t get on with my inner writer and thus I’m still behind of schedule with posting my photos here. It’s been a year since I came back from Japan.
Kyoto was not the first city that I’ve visited during my stay in Japan, but it was by far the most colorful place I’ve ever seen. Autumn foliage surrounding ancient temples and palaces looked as spectacular as I thought it would. Having only two full days there, it was basically impossible to see everything what’s there to see, but it was enough to understand why Kyoto is usually regarded to be the most beautiful city in Japan.
