Paragliding, Pokhara, Nepal – Gallery

Paragliding_Pokhara_Nepal_29

Pokhara, Nepal is arguably the best place in the world to para-glide and the numbers for pilots, schools and companies making it possible to do are numerous. From the launch site above Pokhara you can see the whole of the town and the beautiful Lake Fewa. Gliding high over the lake and surrounding hills/mountains make this a most memorable experience. Tandem flying is so safe and so comfortable...just do it!!! Read More »

Christchurch, New Zealand – Gallery

Christchurch_New_Zealand_40

Christchurch on the south Island of New Zealand was devastated by a severe earthquake in 2011 but these photos were taken prior to this. I was specifically intrigued by the "Autism" monument complete with talking seats and quirky bronze sculptures. Take time to review the inspirational quotes. Around Christchurch you will find wonderful countryside, views and coastline. Parts of NZ feel like going back a little in time but Christchurch is a beautiful place with pretty trams and floral displays. Read More »

Built on a hill/mountain overlooking the second city in Nepal, Pokhara, and the beautiful Lake Phewa, the brilliant-glistening white World Peace Pagoda was constructed by Japanese Buddhist monks of the Nipponzan Myohoji movement. The paths up to the pagoda are a wonderful walk and you are rewarded with fantastic views from the cafes on the summit once you get to the Pagoda.

Namabuddha Temple, Nepal – Gallery

Namobuddha_Nepal40

This beautiful and spiritual place is in the Kathmandu valley and a short distance from Panauti. The bus trip to the Buddhist temple and monastery is interesting and sometimes exciting. The relatively new monastery at namabuddha is in such a great position overlooking the surrounding countryside. The paintings by the monks are a joy to behold and are still in the process of being painted on the walls even as worship is in progress. A really wonderful place to visit. It is disrespectful to photograph inside the monastery and so you will have to walk or bus it to the top to witness the beautiful works. Read More »
