    Awesome photo collection! I’ve been to many of these places myself – and I’ve been close to others , but ran out of time. I especially like the picture of the dhow. I spent several weeks traveling the northern coast of Kenya in the mid-1990’s on one. Fantastic trip!

    Man, I’m so inspired by your posts. It’s actually my birthday today and was contemplating on so many things when I bumped into your blog. My greatest dreams in life include traveling the world and learning and inspiring people along the way. I’m happy you have included the Philippines as one of your favorite destinations in the world, but still I believe it is an undiscovered gem in Southeast Asia. Thank you for this blog, your followers can have a glimpse on what the Philippines has to offer.

    So when are you coming back? I owe you a bottle of San Miguel or a freshly brewed Batangas coffee.

    Hi Mark,

    enjoyed reading your blogs on SEA (South East Asia) nations and made me even more happy to find that several photos taken from different parts of my country Philippines is included above to inspire more people to come and visit Philippines. It’s one way of promoting tourism. I hope someday soon you will come back to see more of my country. Cebu, Bohol, Boracay and entire Palawan is a must see when you visit again.. I will share your blogs so that more people would be aware and be inspired to travel, BTW, I subscribed to your travelogue just a while ago.

    Amazing pictures! Thanks for sharing them! The Argentina shots are breath-taking! I have been seeing and hearing about it lately, and your shot of Brunei is the reason why it is on my top list.

    I also thought you would have something for Laos…..I’m so curious about that place, because it is under looked just like the Philippines. Speaking of that country, seems that you are very fond of the island? Funny, it was the last place I wanted to visit, but your images makes me want to re-discover…..

      Hey AC,
      Thanks for checking out my site and for looking through these photos. There are so many beautiful places in the world, that it can be difficult to decide where to go next. However, it’s important to remember that there are amazing places in every country around the world, so all of these photos are an inspiration to get out there and explore! Argentina is great, Brunei is interesting, Laos is beautiful and the Philippines is gorgeous as well!

    6 years ago

    Mark, those pictures are jaw-dropping!!! great shots…
    By the way, at #18 looks like you took that picture while having dinner. A few days ago I read a friend of mine’s blog who says that going out after 7 pm in Nairobi is extremely dangerous due to rampant robbery. In other countries which he visited (Malawi, Tanzania, Uganda) robbers do exist, but they only use knife. But in Nairobi they use guns (even AK-47). Is that right?

    • Mark Wiens

      6 years ago

      Hey Bama, thanks for the comment.
      There is always a danger to going out at night in Nairobi, it depends on where you are going and how you go about going out.

      When I lived in Nairobi, I lived with my family in the neighborhood outskirts of the city. If I wanted to go out at night, I would normally stay with my friend who lived closer into the city, so I would not have to journey out to the neighborhoods where things are dark and have more of a potential for crime.

      This being said, yes, there is a fare amount of crime, but sometimes I guess we just must take some risks (but try to avoid them).

    You got that right—I want to jump out of my chair right now and go traveling to these places! I’ve only been to 3 of them (Maui, Iguazu Falls, and Hong Kong) and want to see the rest for sure πŸ™‚

    Great photos! But not everyone finds food as fascinating – especially on a travel expose! less food photos, more places πŸ™‚

      @Dan: Thanks, I understand – I happen to find a bit of divine inspiration from food around the word – but many places as well.

    These are stunning! I particularly love the photo of Coron Island in the Philippines and the school kids in the Philippines. I also love the photo of Makapu’u Point on Oahu. I used to love that area when I lived on Oahu.

      @Lisa: Great, yes, Have you seen any whales from that point before? Last time I was there, we were able to see some – with a pretty good view.

      @Andrea: These pictures barely display a fraction of our possibilities of things to see and experience in this world!
