Discover Belem

PORTUGAL | Fri, 11 May 2018 | By pbm6 | Views [339]

Photos: My Scholarship entry - Back to the Roots

PORTUGAL | Fri, 7 Nov 2014 | By markoo | Photo Gallery | Scholarship Entry

The short thing is I am not very good with words, and by nature though sociable I am not really talkative. That's probably why I have found myself in this art of photography where I can quietly and comfortably communicate- express myself without fear ... Read more >

PORTUGAL | Wed, 7 May 2014 | By consultingnomad | Views [242]

Off-the-beaten-track travelling... Or not?!

PORTUGAL | Wed, 2 May 2012 | By mettesv | Views [624]

Back in NYC

USA | Sat, 4 Sep 2010 | By alexkozovski | Views [639]

I realize there exists a massive hiatus in my writing between now and Leh  but it was inevitable. At some point it became a necessity to live and experience rather than sit behind a computer and write about it. For next time I think I have an idea ... Read more >
