A while ago, I started country counting. My tally stands at just sixteen, or maybe I should say sweet sixteen. So I round up the tally with some of the beautiful skies I captured in the last six of them. You can see the first ten countries here and here. So this completes the list of countries traveled so far by me, at least for time being. The picture above is from Hong Kong.
Cambodia (With Tourism Authority of Thailand and Cambodia Tourism Board)
Cambodia has been my shortest stay at any international location. I had only only night in the Angkor region. I crammed the night market and the sunrise at Angkor Wat in that. I got very little sleep but the memories that I made are priceless.
Finland (With Nokia, Now Microsoft)
Finland was such an amazing winterland. I have never seen so much snow in my life. The highest temperature that I encountered during my entire stay was 2 degree celsius. The coldest was minus 22 degrees. Lapland was colder than Helsinki. With such cold weather it was very easy to appreciate both central heating and sauna.
Maldives (Personal Trip)
My younger nephew Sunil and I went to Maldives last year. Maldives is incredibly beautiful and then some more. And contrary to the perceptions it can be done on a budget.
Jordan (with Jordan Tourism Board)
Like South Africa, Jordan was not on my list, at least not in the near future, because eventually everything is on my list. It was also special because I got to attend a mass by Pope Francis! Now even in my wildest dreams I never imagined getting an opportunity like that! Dead Sea was incredible fun and I discovered delicious vegetarian food in Jordan!
Bhutan (with Make My Trip)
Visiting Bhutan was like stepping back in time, say by 20 years! I was about to say 50 years but then I realized that it is more than my age! I simply fell in love with Bhutan. And if you are into trekking, you have to trek to the Tiger’s Nest Monastery. Even you are not, you still have to hike up to the monastery!
Hong Kong (Personal Trip)
Hong Kong was a truly memorable trip because I took double trouble (my daughter and niece) to Hong Kong on their first trip abroad. Of course Disneyland was the agenda! All I can say is that I took out two kids with me alone and I have lived to tell the tale!
