Sarnath, about 10 kms north-east of Varanasi India is the place where Buddha first taught the ‘Dharma’ after attaining enlightenment at Bodhgaya.

He delivered his first ever sermon to his five disciples and the spot where he preached his first sermon is marked with the magnificent Dharmekh Stupa in the picture which has carvings that date back to the 5th century AD.

Sarnath is the birthplace of Buddhism, a famous Buddhist site today. The great Indian King Ashoka was a passionate Buddhist follower, he spread Buddha's message of love and compassion throughout his vast empire and built magnificent stupas and structures in Sarnath.

Due to King Ashoka’s efforts Buddhism flourished and in the 3rd century AD, Sarnath had become one of the great centres of Buddhism. When the Chinese scholar Hsuan Tsang (Xuanzang) visited Sarnath in the 7th century, he found 30 monasteries and 3000 monks living at Sarnath.

In 1836, this place was rediscovered and excavated. Within the sarnath complex several monasteries and other stupas were unearthed that fell into ruin when Buddhism went into decline.

Sarnath is one of the four holy places associated with the life of Lord Buddha and lies near the confluence of the ganges and the Varuna rivers in Uttar Pradesh, India. -------------------------------------------- .

The city of Jodhpur in Rajasthan is full of beautiful facades and complimentary colour pairs.

We spent three entire afternoons getting lost in the labyrinth of narrow alleys and blue houses, just to find the absolute best images and hidden gems.

We searched every nook and cranny of the city, went down every side-lane, leaving no stone unturned, until we finally found this beautiful rare yellow door to eternal sunshine ☀️🚪 -------------------------------------------- .

You are looking at a scene that very few Westerners have ever set eyes upon. We spent much of the month of June searching for and documenting the rarely visited living root bridges of Meghalaya. 🌿

They are hidden away from the world of men, beneath dense tree cover on steep jungle-clad valley slopes. 🌳

On Google images you will mostly find images of two or three highly trafficked living root bridges, but will find very few if any images of the bridges we're showing you. ⠀

Each bridge is unique and beautiful in its own way and is worth appreciating. It's much how the claim "one temple and you've seen them all" is absolutely preposterous. ⠀

It is hard to believe that this bridge consists of nothing but interwoven tree roots from the Ficus Elastica tree, but that is because the gaps between the roots that form the floor have been plugged with earth and rocks, and then covered over with a carpet of fallen leaves.🍂🍄 To visit these secret bridges you will need to hire a local guide, as no map knows the way, nor can you guess their location, nor do many of the inhabitants in the nearby towns even know of these bridges' existence.

Unfortunately we are not yet ready to reveal the exact whereabouts of the phenomenally rare and beautiful offbeat living root bridges of Meghalaya. 😬

We don't want these majestic examples of natural architecture to be spoiled by mass tourism forever. Have you ever felt the same way about a place that you visited? 🤔 -------------------------------------------- .

You and I, we're like fireworks and symphonies exploding in the sky ✨💥
With you, I'm alive
Like all the missing pieces of my heart, they finally collide
So stop time right here in the moonlight 🌙
'Cause I don't ever wanna close my eyes.... 🌹 -------------------------------------------- .

The Boudhanath stupa is one of the most The Boudhanath stupa is one of the most important landmarks in Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal.

At 36 metres tall, it’s the largest stupa in the Kathmandu valley and one of the largest stupas in South Asia.

Every day thousands of monks and devotees of Tibetan Buddhism come here as pilgrims to circumambulate the stupa and spin the prayer wheels that are installed around its perimeter, all while muttering mantras and counting rosary beads. There’s a large Tibetan community living in the vicinity of the monument.

The stupa is hemmed in all around its perimeter by high-end cafés, guesthouses and small shops selling religious souvenirs and playing delightful melodious Tibetan music that continuously repeats: “Om Mani Padme Hum”. It’s a fantastic spot for photography if you like to shoot people, or even if you just enjoy people watching. There is an entrance fee but it’s easy to avoid by entering the area via any of the unguarded narrow side alleyways.

A small flight of steps brings you up to a raised platform surrounding the central part of the stupa, seen here in the image. We hadn’t seen these lurid orange and green coloured prayer flags before we came to Nepal.

The watchful eyes on the stupa spire are the all-seeing, omniscient peepers of the Buddha - you’re under surveillance. 😁 --------------------------------------------

👣 We two long-term nomadic travellers, exploring the planet freely as uncaged birds, wandering where we may, living each day however we choose, as free, sovereign human beings.

Our mission is to inspire all the aspiring vagabonds out there who haven't yet found the courage to spread their wings, to take the leap to freedom. "Some birds aren't meant be caged...their feathers are too bright, their songs too sweet and wild.." ( Stephen King) --------------------------------------------

We are always on the lookout for mystical mountain villages, towns with old-world charm, landscapes with breathtaking natural beauty, tribes with unique cultures, or we try to look at drab places with a fresh pair of eyes and find something exciting to share with our audience.

The reason we mainly promote relatively unexplored destinations is because we aspire to distribute tourists more uniformly. We believe that by promoting places that mass tourism has overlooked, we can help to more equitably distribute tourists numbers, better distribute economic growth and reduce the damage done to the environment at popular tourist sites.

We celebrated a wonderful day in La Paz sand dunes site in Ilocos Norte province of Philippines. A  lesser known gem 💎

We discovered the horseshoe bend of the Philippines in Ilocos Norte province 😁🐎👞 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Just kidding, it's not an official attraction - we just came up with this unusual perspective of Timmangtang Rock, a coastal rock formation found near the more touristy Bantai Abot Cave,  which is a sea arch located a bit further along the Mayra-Ira coast road on the way to the famous blue lagoon. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
All of these wonderful coastal attractions can be visited if you travel to Pagudpud, a small coastal town near the northernmost point of North Luzon in the Philippines. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's best to rent a scooter in Pagudpud for the day if you want to cover everything by yourself. -------------------------------------------- .
