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 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...

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...
