Feel the History Everywhere you Go!
Scotland is beautiful weather there are stormy skies or bright blue skies (although more breath taking with blue skies). The history is amazing! The people are resilient...what a beautiful yet harsh geography to live in. Have you seen any of the beautiful Highland Cows? Enjoying those wonderful breakfast's, steak pies and sausage roles! I never cared for the blood pudding :). Enjoy!

Planning to visit one day
What a great post, and such amazing pictures. I've been dreaming of visiting Iceland, especially after so many inspiring stories. Thank you for sharing. Though I feel that I'm already too late with my plans, as it gets more and more crowded every year. Nevertheless, will go there one day for sure!

Cusco Cathedrals
Great rendition of the history of some of the churches in Cusco Phil. Was what we saw in these churches and the paintings that kicked off our quest to discover proof the Spaniards melded the Virgin Mary with the Inca mother God Pachamama to bring the Incas into the Roman Catholic fold. Still evident today. Fascinating stuff.

Doi-Suthep
Very likely all the thoughts of the monks in relation to you are pure, I don't think that this is only mercenary interest, relying on their eastern wisdom. I also managed to visit Doi-Suthep. A wonderful observation, amazed me sure. My cousin and I traveled on a rented Cat Motors motorbike, I drive quite well, and we went to visit and photograph a little more than 120 temples in Chiang Mai in 4 days. That is, we visited the third part of the sights from the must-see list.

Tonle Sap Cambodia
On our last day in Cambodia, we were taking a cruise on the largest freshwater lake ,Tonele Sap, in Cambodia. There are 1000 families living on floating homes on the lake. This photo of some children swimming in front of their floating home exemplified the happiness and freedom of these people. They may be poor, but they were unaware that they were poor, so they were happy.

Elephant training
Hi there! Iโ€™m really enjoying reading your blog a andam returning to Thailand soon, but I was alarmed by some of your statements regarding how easy it is to domesticate elephants. Please, please read some articles about how the babies are taken from their mothers far too early and tortured until their spirits are broken. Anywhere allowing tourists to ride and forcing elephants to paint isnโ€™t really a sanctuary, the Thais just call them this to fool tourists into thinking so. I have a friend who works for a proper sanctuary near Phuket. Honestly, itโ€™s shocking. Enjoy the rest of your trip and I look forward to hearing about it. Rachel

Arriving Home
Got home safely, Karen (wife) happy to see me but not as much as Elvis (the dog); who jumped between us and licked my face constantly. I would like to say I had a great time and appreciate the new friends I found in Phil, Richard, Dick and Michael; great time together. Not often you can be with people who can rationally discuss differences of opinions in politics and religion but most of the time just clown around, Unique mix. Thanks Again. John From Philly P.S., I've started my diet and I'm going back to marry the one tour guide "Sue", I guess her husband will just have to have an accident.
