Snow and Light in Norway

Snow and Light in Norway

The Treasures of Angkor

The Treasures of Angkor

Millions of tourist visit Angkor Wat every year, and some days it feels like there's a million tourists flooding into the temple just when you were hoping to enjoy a quiet moment with the ancient ruins.

Monkly Business in Myanmar

Monkly Business in Myanmar

While visiting the most beautiful pagoda in Yangon I met a monk who changed my mind about travel to the nation formerly known as Burma. The question is not whether to travel or not, but how to travel and why.
