Travel photographers can have a number of different jobs.  Some travel photographers photograph exciting places for travel advertising, others for travel articles in newspapers/magazines.  Some also use the photographs for travel blogging websites/online journals.  Personally, this job interests me a lot as it’s the two things I enjoy most in life: travelling and photography.  Travel photography in newspapers/magazines for me looks to be the most exciting, as you get to share your experience, in photographs, for the world to see.

Want more from your movie viewing than entertainment? I do, too, especially when watching movies with our daughter. We love to explore movies about the world (and that’s another post) – and watch old movies.

With each new place you go, you can have a new start. Take my friend Johnny, for example. In all of his 65 years of life, he has had to start over many times, in nearly all of the places he has lived.

Rimas’ Lab

I see Rimas coming and hurry towards him. Rimas is an interesting man, and I am glad to see that he has come to meet us. Yesterday while we were having dinner at his house in Lithuania, he invited us to come and have a look around his prosectorium (lab where he dissects bodies) in the Vilnius University. He had served us delicious soup that tasted sweet but a little tangy, and the taste is still lingering in my mouth even now, the next morning.
