It's very interesting every time to see how it has changed (and also some things remain the same). The increasing influx of tourism each year has definitely left its mark, for better or worse.
I saw an ad for elephant rides, so I figured, why not? Not exactly something I can do in most places.

Hello! A (very) few might remember, but I used to maintain a travel/photo blog for many years. Then in 2011 someone offered to buy the rights to my domain, wanderwithme.com. Since that point, I became lazy and did not re-post my blog on another domain, and all the content is now digital litter somewhere.
