Walking Chiang Mai

Ive sort of thrown together a handful of images from my walking around Chiang Mai today. Not much flow between each of them sorry. One thing I noticed more in Chiang Mai more than other areas of Thailand was the uneven pathways (if there was a pathway). It appears that each shop has ownership, or […]

Farewell Bangkok

Although I have countless more images from Bangkok, today can be the last, so we can move up north a little next time. Something I love to see in cities I have visited is the contrast between old and new. Todays top image is of just as such – a old rundown building (I think […]

Auckland currently, for its population, one of the most sprawled out cities in […]
