FOLLOW ME ON INSTAGRAM @richardsilverphoto This was my second time to Bolivia, last time I went was in 2013. I love Bolivia's landscape of mountains and colorful scenery. Have you been to Bolivia? The highest elevation capital city in the world is La Paz at an average of 12,000 feet. Are you familiar with Altitude Sickness? Have you ever experienced it? Well if you are apt to experience it or if you have ever had it Bolivia is a great place for it. This time I flew into Cochabamba at a bit over 8,400 feet so I was only slightly light on...

FOLLOW ME ON INSTAGRAM @richardsilverphoto Going to New York as a visitor is kind of a difficult thing for me to wrap my head around. This was my 2nd time in NY visiting and staying at other peoples apt's, homes, couches and extra bedrooms. When I did it for July 4th week I stayed in Battery Park city at my friend Pat's apartment. I did appreciate all of the new completed construction, new shopping areas along with so many new restaurants. She also lives close to the World Trade Center site so I was able to see the finished Oculus built by...

FOLLOW ME ON INSTAGRAM @richardsilverphoto Be it that I am currently a Florida resident for me to stay in New York I need my friends to allow me to stay with them. On this trip to New York I am being hosted by my longtime friends Lenny and Lauren on the beach in Long Beach on Long Island. I have been here since late July and plan on staying until right after Labor Day then go back to Florida. When I got back to New York this time my friend Howie got us on a helicopter over NY. He has a...

FOLLOW ME ON INSTAGRAM @richardsilverphoto I plan on seeing some of my friends this summer who I traveled with last year with Remote Year. Last week I went to see my friend Tim in Austin for five days. It was my first time to Austin, really Texas, which has such a reputation for being a cool place to hang and eat and I can agree. Most of the people I met were in their 20's and 30's, I did feel a bit old there (sort of like my trip with Remote Year). I actually did not use my camera during this...

After traveling for 1.5 years I am finally back home in Florida. I was supposed to be in South America until May 21st but I decided to cut my trip short for some personal reasons. My original travel plans from London were first to Bolivia then to Sao Paulo. Bolivia was to meet a woman that I met in Argentina in May of 2017 (we also traveled together for 17 days through southeast Asia in November) but she is now in a serious relationship so there was no reason for me to go there. Sao Paulo was to visit my...

     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...
