Fantastic Foto Friday: Banteay Srei, Citadel of the Women, Cambodia

Banteay Srei Temple, Cambodia

The more visitors the famous temples of Angkor in Cambodia receive, the more the tours and guides seem to focus on the most popular ones, like Angkor Wat or the famous jungle temple of Ta Phrom, but if you want to see some impressive temples without the crowds, try to start the day early and go further to see the Citadel of the Women Banteay Srei, a smaller yet beautiful example of early Angkor Architecture! 
To make the most out of your visit, I suggest to avoid the tour groups and crowds by going on your own. It’s easy – check out my Tips for getting around Angkor and Best Places to Stay in Angkor!

Fantastic Foto Friday: Street Art in Melbourne, Australia

Sydney might have the stunning harbor views with the bridge and opera house, but Melbourne has some interesting sights on its own. You’ll have to look a little closer, but the street art all around the city is pretty amazing and I found myself wondering aimlessly and taking photos in the little neighborhoods – a great way to spend a leisurely day!

Fantastic Foto Friday: Perfect Roadtrip on the Great Ocean Road, Australia!

Twelve Apostle, Great Ocean Road, Australia

The Great Ocean Road is one of my favorite road trips, with stunning views all along the dramatic shore line. And the Twelve Apostle are the most amazing spot! It’s also a great getaway from Melbourne, with sandy beaches and small coastal towns to relax and enjoy a few days! If you like to drive, rent a car and try it out – it’s a trip of a lifetime!

Fantastic Foto Friday: Glenelg Townhall, Adelaide, Australia

Adelaide, the capital city of South Australia, was planned to be the capital of Australia, settled by free immigrants and not convicts like the bigger cities Sydney and Melbourne. While that plan never quite worked out, you have a very walk-able city with historic buildings like the Glenelg Townhall, a pedestrian mall and nice parks. Or you can enjoy the surrounding wine country or head out for a road trip on the Great Ocean Road!

Fantastic Foto Friday: Sydney Harbor Bridge

Sydney is one of the most beautiful cities in the world and it was love on first sight for me – and the stunning harbor views with the iconic bridge – the locals say: hahhbahhh bridge – are a big wow factor for anybody visiting for the first time! 
And I’m still stunned every time I see it on my many return visits, feeling compelled to take one more photo! I recommend to go and take your own photos, it’s worth it!

Fantastic Foto Friday: Etosha National Park, Namibia

What makes Etosha National Park so unique is that the wildlife watching is focused on the water holes the animals come to in this very dry park, so you can sit quietly and watch the animals, without having to rush around in a jeep like on other safaris. And it’s especially beautiful and peaceful at sunset – it’s a sight I’ll never forget!
