Hiking The Mediterranean Steps, Gibraltar.

The Mediterranean Steps, Gibraltar. March 2017. I had already enjoyed an amazing day exploring the gorgeous Gibraltar Nature Reserve. There had been so much to take in, including splendorous views over Gibraltar Strait and the ruins of the Moorish Castle. Moreover, I’d gotten a look at the territory’s fascinating World War II tunnels, crossed the […]

Travel Report: Gibraltar Nature Reserve.

Gibraltar Nature Reserve. March 2017. In the spring of 2017 my yearlong adventure living in the Spanish city of Malaga was drawing to a close. I had accepted a new teaching post in Zhejiang Province, China, thus I was busy tying up a million and one loose ends before I left.  On my weekends, I’d […]

Unwinding in Georgioupolis, Crete.

Unwinding in Georgioupolis, Crete. September 2011.  Have you ever thought about what kind of traveller you are? They say there are around five classic types, if you buy into that sort of thing. The Adventurer, for example, is all about pulse-raising activities like wind surfing, hang gliding and bouldering. Nah, that’s not me. I’m certainly […]

Travel Report: Prasat Pram Temple, Koh Ker.

Prasat Pram Temple, Koh Ker, Cambodia. June 2020. The final stop of our day exploring Koh Ker’s ancient ruins came at Prasat Pram Temple.

The Black Lady Temple, Koh Ker, Cambodia. June 2020. It had been a long, fruitful morning exploring the isolated temple ruins of Koh Ker.

Prasat Banteay Pir Chaon Temple, Koh Ker.

Prasat Banteay Pir Chaon Temple, Koh Ker. June 2020. Even within the isolated and less visited temple complex of Koh Ker, Prasat Banteay Pir Chaon Temple stands as a particularly ignored structure. In many ways, there is little to set it apart from the more standard temple ruins we’ve seen throughout Cambodia. Nevertheless, there were […]

Travel Report: Prasat Krachap Temple, Koh Ker.

Prasat Krachap Temple, Koh Ker, Cambodia. *With five more Koh Ker temples to go, I’ve decided to publish the remaining ruins over the next consecutive five days. These are the smaller and less visited of Koh Ker’s ancient structures, thus they are mini articles, if you will. Happy temple hunting!*  —— June 2020. After the dramatic […]

Travel Report: The Linga Temples, Koh Ker.

The Linga Temples, Koh Ker, Cambodia. June 2020. After the breathtaking majesty of Koh Ker’s pyramid temple at Prasat Thom, I imagine some people might be a bit disappointed by The Linga Temples. In fact, this collection of five single-chamber structures is entirely understated in comparison. Nevertheless, I was fascinated and charmed by the three […]
