Togetsukyo bridge and cherry blossoms, Arashiyama, Kyoto, Japan, photo Spring is the season for plum and cherry blossoms in Japan.

Dolphin, Tokuyuji, Naramachi, Nara, Japan, photo Starting in Aomori, in the north of Honshu, and working down to Kagoshima in Kyushu, I was following the trails of the Autumn leaves. As usual, I was hitching, and it was great to meet so many wonderful people, especially in Kyushu. I occasionally stayed with friends, but sometimes kind strangers put me up for a night or two. These are the photos of Japanese Autumn, and Kyushu.

    Travel 99

The Taj Mahal, Agra, India, photo In 1999, I travelled from Japan, where I had been working for five years, back to my home in Cambridge, England. I took the slow route - hitchhiking through Asia, bought a second-hand digital camera and a second-hand computer, and took lots of photos. The aim was to see the beautiful places in south-east Asia, culminating in the Taj Mahal. There are lots of interesting tales in the diaries.
