The last couple of months have been a bit of a turmoil. Life, work, life, friends, work, relationships, moving, work and all of the mundane things you guys as readers do not care about. Unless you really do. :-)
Either way, I have been traveling in between these mundane life things and I've been exploring more of the world.

Most of the time the only way to get around the area is through taxi boats. They are more like large motorized canoes.
Most of the people in this area make their living off tourism or the land.

I encountered the people to be really kind and friendly. A lot of them actually spoke English. Which was nice and easy to communicate with.

Most people we encountered wanted to sell you goods rather than have your charity. You could offer them money, but they just won't accept it, which is nice. We never felt threatened or in danger. People do talk about the war in Burma, and though there are conflicts happening in the north, we never really felt in danger or directly affected by the issues the country is facing.

I will try to update this site more often. I have a lot of more trips I want to talk about.

This past Chinese New Years I went on an amazing trip. I ended up going to Bangkok, Siem Reap, Phnom Penh, and Shanghai.
It was great to have the opportunity to travel to so many amazing places. I was also able to travel by train between Thailand to Cambodia. The train takes you from Bangkok to the border. Then you go through customs, and walk over to Cambodia.

It was relatively cheap - About $2 USD.  The scenery is pretty amazing and and the people you will meet will impact you.  From the border to Siam Reap you take a taxi or bus. We took a taxi and it was about a 4-5 hour drive. We only stopped twice for a bathroom break.

     Hi, it has been a long time since I have updated this site. A lot has been going on. If you follow me on Instagram or Tumblr, I tend to update there more, because it just takes longer here.
     These are some shots from the Love Park in Ningbo, China.
It is odd  to see a park built around a temple area. It is truly beautiful. No wonder it is a place where a lot of people take their wedding pictures.

For Christmas, my girlfriend and I decided to go to the mountains. She's a workaholic who can't seem to relax. I'm someone who tends to relax at most instances. Though there is WiFi at the hotel, we agreed to just relax and be. No plans, just do what we felt like each morning without reservations. 

It was rather peaceful and worth the trip. We stayed at this lovely hotel, where the mom of the owner was the cook. Hands down the best Chinese food I've had since moving to China. 
Attached is a video as to how quiet it gets in the forest. It can be magical. 
Mount Mogan ( The Bamboo Forest) is located in Dequing County in Zhejiang Providence. It's not too far away from Shanghai, and definitely worth the trip if you want to get away from the bustling city life.  
We stayed at Moganshan Bamboo View Guesthouse. 
The owner speaks English and they have AC and Heater units.

 These are black and white shots taken on my first visit to Hong Kong. A lot of things happened in this trip that made it special. It is another one of those cities that people say is magical for photography and photographers. 
Here are a couple editing using the mobile apps VSCO and Snapseed.
