Over the years I have done the biggest parts of my trips to Asia. Recently travel took me to India, China, Japan, Tibet and Bhutan. Myanmar, where I was a long time ago is an all-time favorite. This album was shot on slidefilm in 1995. Laos and Vietnam were also quite special 20 years ago. I do not care much for the more touristy countries in the region, except for a beach holiday in between traveling. China and India are my favorites at the moment. Both countries are huge, populous, modernizing, but in some ways still traditional and immensely varied. I have spend over two and a half year in Asia the past decades and hope to spend much more time on this continent in the future.
