There are three temples which you must visit in Cambodia. The first is Angkor Wat and the second is Bayon Temple, and last but not the least is the Banteay Srei Temple.
Located about 30km northeast of the famous Angkor Wat Temple, Banteay Srei is considered an outlying temple since it is quite a distance from the main temple complex. This temple is famous for its extraordinarily detailed stone carvings.
The name Banteay Srei means ‘Citadel of the Women’ which may be a reference to the small scale of the temple and also to its intricate and delicate carvings. The unique thing about Banteay Srei Temple is that it was built largely of red sandstone, which can be carved like wood.
Built in the 10th century and dedicated to the Hindu god, Shiva, Banteay Srei consists of three concentric rectangular enclosures. Like most temples in Siem Reap, it is oriented towards the east.
It was a beautiful morning, and I took some pictures of the flowers as well.
We passed by what looked like a padi field on the way to the temple. What a wonderful view! I would not mind taking a morning stroll here even if there is no temple to visit.
When visiting Sevilla, there is a place that I think you shouldn't miss. It is not often mentioned in tourist guides, but I found it to be a highlight of the city: The Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporáneo.

Budding photographers are everywhere, but not everyone can excel in the craft using both analogue and digital mediums. When you look at Alex Luyckx’s body of work, however, you realize that there masterfully skilled and gifted people out there who can shoot staggering regardless of what camera or what medium there is. And if that wasn't fascinating enough, this talented gentleman with an obvious devotion for film also develops and prints his own images.

I live in the North of Italy, near the border with Switzerland. I love to cycle in Swiss territory, because their car traffic is lower than in Italy and because there are nice bicycle paths free of cars and motorbikes. In this article I'll show you a nice three-day bicycle path that I cycled last summer. Take a look after the jump!
If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!

My name is Sinead Allison and last year, I finished my 105-day journey with my now husband through different countries including Iceland which was the most Jurassic place we visited. Here are some shots of us making our way with two packs, a bus passport ticket and a tent.
