When I think of Sri Lanka, I think of incredible landscapes, pristine beaches, misty mountains, rich biodiversity, friendly locals and delicious food.
Beautiful sunsets from around the world I watched the most beautiful sunset of my life sitting on a bus en route to Amsterdam. The only effort I made was to elbow my way to get to the front seat, on the top deck. I did earn some nasty looks in the process, but it was all […]
Around where I live, there is a fair bit of bird activity. There are Great Tits, Blue Tits, Sparrows, Starlings, Redstarts, Warblers, Finches, Pigeons, Seagulls, and some other birds I’m yet to id. To keep me going I even bought some birdfeed

No matter where I see them, I am drawn to them perhaps like nomads to Sheep and Goats. 😉 I find the mountain Sheep and Goats even prettier and their association with Nomads of various parts of India make them all the more interesting.

At the end of the session I come away feeling as if I have done hours of meditation.
