Culture

Namibia Portraits by Marc Llewellyn

It’s easy to develop preconceived notions of Africa, and it’s people, being less than safe for travellers. However, from my experience, this couldn’t be more further from the truth.

The Namibian and Botswanan people wore a constant and welcoming smile across their face and every passing of a local was met with intrigue and welcome.  A genuine and honest interaction I hadn’t encountered with any other culture.  Northern Namibia is also known for having a population of Himba People, a nomadic, unmistakably ochre-skinned tribespeople originally from Angola and still living unchanged in their mud huts today.

Colombo To Ella by Marc Llewellyn

The very famous and stunningly beautiful train ride from Colombo (via Kandy) to Ella, high up in the tea mountains of Sri Lanka.  If you're lucky enough to find a window seat, or any seat for that matter, strap yourself in and enjoy the beauty of Sri Lanka's countryside.

Wildlife Of India by Marc Llewellyn

India is thick with wildlife.  Take for example, the roads, littered with elephant, monkey, goat, dog, camel, sheep, etc.  Don't be mistaken, not all of them are friendly either, the monkeys in particular will gladly take a bite out of your Achilles.
