It’s my honor to present the stunningly beautiful, Svitlana Petryk from Ukraine. We shot these images at the Waldstein Gardens (aka. Wallenstein Garden, Valdštejnská zahrada) in Prague, Czechia.

Our hearts are with the Ukrainians during this shameful Russian invasion on their sovereign territory.

Travel ☼ China ☼ Hong Kong

18.Dec.29 – Hong Kong · crematorium (Man Mo Temple)

Here are photos from my Christmas adventure to Hong Kong. I had been there several times on business but never managed to properly explore the city. On this trip, I soaked up the culture and magistery of the city.

18.Dec.26 – Hong Kong · panorama (Peak)

Visiting various temples throughout the city was a humbling experience – an oasis of peace amongst the highrises of the busy city.

18.Dec.27 – Hong Kong · incense (Wong Tai Sin Temple)
18.Dec.29 – Hong Kong · worship man (Man Mo Temple)
18.Dec.28 – Hong Kong · worship (Po Lin Monastery)

On a Saturday morning, walking through the city, I came across this group of students in the middle of their stretching routine. I only managed to get this one photo before I was asked to not take any more.

18.Dec.29 – Hong Kong · exercise (Polytechnic University)

I wasn’t going to leave Hong Kong without visiting one of my childhood heroes, Bruce Lee. His statue was on Hong Kong’s Promenade, at the Avenue of Stars. Unfortunately, during my visit, his statue was covered and the area was being renovated – Bummer. But on my way there I came across a wedding party and caught this great photo.

18.Dec.27 – Hong Kong · street (wedding)

That morning, I set out with my camera for a solo walk through the industrial supplies region of Canton Street. This was my favorite shoot of my entire vacation.  Each storefront showcased a unique character and specialty. I even managed to pick up a few things at a fraction of the cost in Europe.

18.Dec.27 – Hong Kong · industrial district (Canton Street)

 

18.Dec.27 – Hong Kong · mill (Nan Lian Garden)

One of the cool aspects of Hong Kong is watching the locals relax after work. In many areas of the city, you see cardboard boxes laid out onto the sidewalks, with people eating, drinking and socializing. I caught this girl amusing herself while waiting for her parents.

18.Dec.26 – Hong Kong · street (baby box)
18.Dec.25 – Hong Kong · panorama (promenade)
18.Dec.27 – Hong Kong · ram (Wong Tai Sin Temple)
18.Dec.29 – Hong Kong · prayer flags (Man Mo Temple)
18.Dec.28 – Hong Kong · dragon pillar (Po Lin Monastery)

Capping off the trip was dinner at the Jumbo Restaurant, considered the “World’s largest floating restaurant”.  Several Jackie Chan movies were filmed there. The restaurant is on the expensive side but I would definitely recommend at least one a visit to experience its grandiose atmosphere.

18.Dec.29 – Hong Kong · dragons (Jumbo Restuarant)
18.Dec.29 – Hong Kong · boat (Jumbo Restuarant)
18.Dec.27 – Hong Kong · incense (Wong Tai Sin Temple)

Travel ☼ Nepal ☼ Himalayas

19.Apr.17 – Ramechhap · girl (airport)

When visiting Nepal, a trek through the  Himalayan or Annapurna mountains is a must. The sixteen-day Everest Basecamp trek was not feasible within my timescales, so a more humble trek to Namche Bazaar seemed like a good compromise.

19.Apr.19 – Monjo · farmhouse (Basecamp Trek)

My trip was immediately compromised when Summit Air’s plane crashed two days before my departure. During take-off at Lukla airport, their plane veered off the runway onto a helipad, killing the pilot and two people standing on the helipad. This was actually the plane I was scheduled to take two days later from Kathmandu. So I was rerouted to Ramechhap instead, requiring a very bumpy five-hour bus ride through the night.

19.Apr.20 – Ghat · worship (Basecamp Trek)

Lukla’s reputation as the most dangerous airport in the world is not to be taken lightly. The runway is only 460m long, allowing only small fixed-wing short-takeoff-and-landing (STOL) aircraft to land. At one end is a mountain face and a cliff face on the other. To make it just a little more difficult, the runway is on a 12° incline.

19.Apr.20 – Ghat · village (Basecamp Trek)

With 25kg on my back, I set off for Phakding, my first stop. It’s supposed to be an easy trek, being mostly downhill, but my body wasn’t used to carrying such a payload. Having past 50 also doesn’t make it easier.

19.Apr.17 – Ghat · farmers (Basecamp Trek)

The second day was even more brutal. From Phakding to Namche Bazaar is a 900m net climb. But with the up and down trail, the total was probably double. The last three hours was a nonstop climb right up to Namche.

19.Apr.22 – Chitwan · children playing (Tharu village)

After returning from my four-day round trip from Lukla to Namche Bazaar, I was off to Chitwan for the tail end of my Himalayan adventure. I was fortunate to talk to the Tharu villagers, watch them play football, work the fields, and take care of their elephants.
