This shot was taken in the backwaters of Kerala, India, a highly complex network of inland waterways that connect the area’s remote villages. I hopped out of my canoe to watch and photograph this otherwise normal morning sight for the locals. I have always loved the simple life of the countryside in Kerala, so whenever I am in Kochi, I make it a point to visit.

  • 26 November 2012

The Amazon is one of those ‘must go’ places that ordinary people dream of and seasoned travellers brag about having visited. It is the ideal escape if you are looking for something exotic, adventurous, contrasting and genuine. And now I promote a local, responsible and sustainable approach to travel in the Amazon with a focus on authentic local experiences, nature-based activities and sustainable practices, all aligned with what I consider to be a basic yet meaningful travel philosophy – “it is all about the people.”

The province of Palawan is a spectacular untamed region found on the western fringes of the Philippine Archipelago. Almost nowhere else can one simultaneously encounter two such intriguing, dynamic and diverse habitats as reefs and tropical rainforests.

Covering an area of 3,840 square kilometres, the area is characterised by open plains, dotted with exotic Borassus Palms and Ugandan Kob, and host to a parade of elephants, lions, waterbucks, buffaloes and warthogs.

The flower, brought to life along with others of virtually every colour by the seasonal deluges, belongs to the terrestrial family of orchids, one of the many pretty flora planted along the banks of the Nabaoy.
