A Taste of Colonial Portugal in Fort Kochi, India Photos

Almost immediately upon arriving into Fort Kochi, India, you feel how ancient everything is.

Add in the architecture from multiple religions that co-existed at one point here, and you have a mess of a very deep and vivid history.

You literally have a mix of Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Communism, and British and Portuguese Colonialism, all in one.

Also, there is a fun element of animals wandering around freely here, goats, cats, chickens, dogs… but no cows this time?

Top 12 Photos – Salvador, Bahia, Brazil

I looked on google maps to see the routes in Salvador, and it basically looks like an ant colony… squiggly lines going everywhere, with no clear direction. Clear evidence of an amazingly deep historical growth and evolution.

Nonetheless, Salvador was colonized almost 500 years ago through a series of shipwrecks, and eventually became an epic hub of slavery and despair for native Americans and Africans from all over the world.

Vancouver City

Top 7 Photos – Downtown Vancouver

Vancouver is considered one of the top 10 best cities to live in, year after year. I had 4 days of sun while here, so it was a great time to explore.

The city itself is very safe, and organized, yet there are several drug addicts roaming around the streets.

There is a very modern feel due to the current rapid development of the city.

Shannon Falls Vancouver British Columbia

Top 7 Photos – Shannon Falls Mountains, British Columbia

The Shannon Falls hiking trail, located 1 hour north of Vancouver, British Columbia, is amazing!

It’s a straight climb to the top, so get your quadriceps ready. There are 3 peaks, with a bonus one for fun. The paths are not always linear, and you can get lost here from peak 2-3.

The view is amazing, and you will definitely thank yourself for coming here and climbing to the top.

One of my favorite hikes of all time (so far).
