     As I take my 7th train in 2.5 weeks to Cinque Terre from Genoa (Genova) I realize how much weather plays a role in my happiness as a traveler and I think as a person. I’ve had some really terrible weather recently and I was very depressed and upset all of the time and I feel it is because of the weather. This also happened earlier in the year in January when I was in Hanoi where it was so much colder that I thought it would be. I enjoyed Hanoi but I know it would have so...

Don't forget to Follow me on Instagram @richardsilverphoto Go to my website www.richardsilverphoto.com It is late January and most of the group has gone our separate ways for a while already. Many people went to Bali, why not, it's Bali and beautiful and easy to stay there. Some people went back to their respected homes, some went to Mexico, New Zealand and Europe. Me, I am in Vietnam for the month of January. A group of us discussed back in November heading to Vietnam in the north to start in Hanoi and then head down south, they all left, I committed to...

Having finished traveling through Southeast Asia in the warm weather we are all now in Kyoto in the winter. (PS-I am not in Bangkok like my Map says-apparently it is broken as I am in Kyoto) This is our month 12, the last month we are all traveling together and there are so many gatherings we have done and are still doing. It is Christmas Day here in Kyoto and we had a huge dinner with 40 of us yesterday for Christmas Eve. Last night we stayed in a hostel for the night so we could all be together for...

So where did we leave off? Oh yeah, I was heading to Bali to visit my friend Eddie and his wife in Densapar, Bali. He moved there about 5/6 years ago because he gave up on the BS of New York and wanted to live life easier, he has succeeded. He is 59 and his Balinese wife is just 23, yup, 23. They are happy and I was very glad to be able to stay with them for a few days and scooter around Bali (which is so damn busy). From Bali I went back to Kuala Lumpur to pick...

Sitting in my living room of our AirBnb in Seminyak, Bali I am mulling over what I have seen so far in just a few weeks. Having been to Asia a number of times already I had a good perspective on what each city might offer me to see but as usual, Asia surprises me again and again. Our first stop is Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia where the food is just amazing and the local staff for Remote Year are some of the best people we have encountered as hosts for a city. They knew where to eat and play and...

Arriving back in Valencia in the Old Town was a part of Valencia I have not been to. Last time I came here I only stayed and traversed through the newer area where the Arts and Science Center is. I love Spain and this past few weeks only proved to me why I feel the way I do. After staying for a few days in Valencia where the beaches, food and architecture is incredible, I headed to Barcelona for my third time. One of my other Remote travelers Colton, has a sister who lives in the Gothic quarter of Barcelona...

I am currently in Barcelona working on my sort of fixed computer. At this point in time I am unable to work on any of my photos because Lightroom and Photoshop just do not work on my broken/fixed for the 4th time this year Dell laptop. Keeping up with my photos is one thing that I have been proud of when it comes to my time management but this has been a total nightmare. Anyone who has experienced computer issues let alone traveling on the road for 9 months and two computers both new and both crashing a number of...

Belgrade is hot! Really hot! Everyday it's over 100 degrees. The city doesn't have as much architecture for me to shoot as I was expecting but it does have a few nice churches in Orthodox style painting and mosaics. Food has been fine and the night life is active also. There aren't many Meraki's here as most are traveling and in Croatia and we lost six people this week who dropped out of the program. We started with 77 people and supposedly we are now at only 56. There were a few people that surprised me that have left and...

I hit Prague running as I always do if the opportunity arises for me to see a city on arrival day. Of course I have been to Prague before, once back in the 1990's and also in 2015 for the "Signal Light Festival". This time is different for so many reasons. First of all I am traveling with a huge group of people who I know, I had a visitor from NY come to hang with me for a week, Stacey (I will talk about that shortly) and I am here in the summer when the weather is amazing. From...
