Daily Photo • INDONESIA – SULAWESI -TOGEAN ISLANDS

Bunch of  small islands in central Sulawesi. Stopped there on the way to Monado thinking to get some rest after Tana Toraja and work on overwhelming amount of pictures I took. So I thought…. Karidiri island I end up on had electricity only from 6PM and it took me 4 days to sort some of them out. Beautiful small island with only 3 resorts which can handle at most 100 people. Calm waters around makes it perfect for snorkeling and diving activities. And that’s what I did during day.

Major citys like Phnom Penh has wild feeling in them, you can buy anything off the street and the offering tactics they use sometimes becomes tiring indeed but the whole country and it’s people with a history both inspiring and depressing is a place where the future is waiting to be shaped.

There is many waterfalls, scenic mountains where you can find tribal villages and even though people in rural areas are camera shy you just need to spend some time hanging around, curious kids will come out and let you snap pictures of them.

Located in northern Taiwan, Taipei is the political, economic, financial, and cultural center of the island. It has thriving arts and academic scene and countless modern commercial buildings. Besides the friendly, welcoming nature of Taiwan’s inhabitants, the high level of development created by Taiwan’s economics make Taipei a cosmopolitan city that brings together the traditional and the new. Museums houses the world’s finest collection of art; beautiful temples are the setting for colorful folk festivals. Taipei offers bustling night markets, the 101 tower and streets lined with shops selling brand name products. All together I spend three months in Taiwan and every time I find something new to eat something new to see, something new to experience.
