As a photographer (and a geeky guy in general), I like to stay up-to-date with my equipment, and sometimes, buy the latest gadgets available to improve my craft and facilitate my job. I recently did the jump to full-frame with the purchase of a Canon 6D, and got myself a new graphics tablet and upgraded […]
There’s something about cathedrals that make you just stand there in awe, dwarfed by the stunning architecture full of details. Those gigantic structures, often overlooking the city, have been built over centuries by thousands of men who had none of today’s tools. It was one thing that I really missed when living in Asia. After […]
The last rays over the Alhambra, as the sun sets behind the distant mountains around the beautiful city of Granada in the South of Spain. I think this might be my new favorite spot in town. I might not have a cool balcony view like I had in Chiang Mai, but this one beats […]
In 2 weeks, we’ll be celebrating our 6 months in our new home after leaving Thailand: Granada, Spain. I have to admit I didn’t spend much time exploring different neighborhoods of the city or even the surrounding areas, but so far, I absolutely love it here and I can see ourselves spending our life in […]
The Plaza de Isabel la Católica is a small square located at the intersection of the Calle Reyes Católicos and the Gran Via de Colón Avenue in the beautiful city of Granada, in Spain. The square contains a monument built in 1892, and dedicated to Queen Isabel and Columbus, who are featured at the time […]
If you’ve ever been wondering what happened in the past few weeks, here’s the answer: My wife and I have finally moved and settled in our new city: Granada, Spain. We left Chiang Mai after 3 years and spent a month in Abu Dhabi in the UAE to do our research and catch up with […]
Not much to add here. Just a beautiful seascape I took while visiting Barcelona in Spain back in 2009 after walking the Camino de Santiago for the second time. It was a lovely warm day and a friend took me for a walk in the city, visiting the Sagrada Familia, Park Güell, the Palau de […]
One of Catalonia’s most important monasteries, Santa Maria de Monserrat is a Benedictine abbey located in the mountains of Montserrat, under the shadow of the imposing monoliths. Culminating at over 1200 meters, Montserrat often attracts religious pilgrims from all over Spain who come visit the famous Black Virgin of Montserrat. It’s actually a very small […]
I’ve been extremely busy lately and had to catch up with a lot of work, which is the reason why I haven’t posted much. While you’re reading this, I’ll be already on my way to the US for a month to enjoy some good time in rural Kentucky :) I’ll update with more information as […]
~~oOo~~ The Yellow Arrow, also known as the Flecha Amarilla in Spanish guides pilgrims to the city of Santiago de Compostela in Spain. No maps are required , at every road fork, there is a yellow arrow painted on a wall, tree, sign, stone, house or wherever necessary to point the way. Each year, groups of […]
I know St Paddy’s day was yesterday but I just wanted to post my share of Green today too. Hope everyone had a good celebration and the hangover is not killing you today. How many of you promised not to ever drink again? Here’s a macro shot of a little pearly dew drop on a […]
~~oOo~~ The pilgrim walks and walks knowing that the goal is never clear nor important, but the journey is endless and enlightening. Many of these pilgrims (now good friends) that I have come across keep on walking, again and again, either physically or spiritually. Many don’t always know where they are heading in life, but […]
~~oOo~~ If you’ve been following my website, you probably know by now that one of my favorite provinces in Spain is Galicia, located on the North-Western part, right above Portugal. Although it’s the most rainy region, I find it extremely beautiful with its mountains, forests and surprising Celtic culture. As I was walking on the […]
~~oOo~~ La Rioja is the home of Spanish Red Wine. A province and autonomous community of Northern Spain, La Rioja is crossed by the Camino de Santiago. The name comes from the river Oja that flows through the region (Rio Oja). La Rioja is also the second province with the smallest population in Spain. The […]
~~oOo~~ Usually, most pilgrims end the Camino de Santiago in the town of Santiago de Compostella, in front of the Cathedral where supposedly lie the remains of St. James. But the Camino doesn’t really end there, it continues up to Finisterra, the “end of the World” where they say a shepherd found the body of […]
This sweet little albergue in ‘Rabanal del Camino’ in Spain is a very relaxing and welcoming place after the long walk on the meseta (the Spanish “desert”).
~~oOo~~ Alto del Perdon … The Mount of Forgiveness. As the pilgrim walks out of Pamplona in Spain, a hill stands on his way, defying him/her, with many giant windmills spread on its peak. It is a very windy place, and a long winding climb. The path is not very steep but feels tiring.. Maybe the […]
~~oOo~~ Have you ever encountered purple mountains? In my opinion, the best time to go walk on the Camino de Santiago in Spain is in April/May. The weather is beautiful, not too rainy and not yet hot. The temperature in the morning is cold enough to feel great when you start walking. The colors of […]
~~oOo~~ If I had to choose between living by the sea or living in the mountains by a forest, I’d definitely choose the mountain/forest. There is something about forests that attracts me. I can hardly find anything as soul-cleansing as a walk in an old forest. The mind is cleared and all of the five […]
They say that a photo is worth a thousand words, but a ‘black and white’ photo is worth a thousand emotions. What does this photo convey to you?
~~oOo~~ This is one of the tiniest villages I have seen. Hidden behind trees, quiet and relaxing, this little village near Zubiri in Spain on the Camino de Santiago is a perfect place for a retreat. There are no distractions around except for forests stretching on the surrounding hills. No cars passing every minute and […]

What I loved about the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage is that, after a few days of walking, your senses are magnified and you start noticing every detail around you. I captured this photo right at the exit of Portomarin, a little town in the province of Lugo North of Spain. It’s an insect commonly called […]
~~oOo~~ The Lighthouse at “Land’s End”. This is the lighthouse called Faro Cabo Fisterra in Galician language, located in Finisterra, the westernmost point in Spain, on a “mountain” called Monte Facho. Monte Facho was a sacred region since the prehistoric Celtic origins of Galicia. Legend has it that a hermit who lived near the site […]
