VFTT 292 Tile Series 1.3

Across 2 years, 13 countries and 4 seasons, The View From The Top reaches over 300 posts. What started as an inspired photo challenge, has now become a visual journey of my travels as well as day to day living captured in squared snapshot views from the top!

Focused around imagery of the waist down (legs and feet), often featuring specific items/ objects (exotic fruit/ entry tickets) and more so, my surroundings (the beach/ landmarks); The VFTT takes on the same basic layout in every shot to express consistency across foreign settings and to explore a sense of creative consensus of different views. In other words, and something I picked up on my travels; Same Same but Different; The VFTT series could not be described any better!

VFTT 266 Sunnies on Deck 2.0

…Well some of it. It may have been Bali, Cambodia and briefly Malaysia last year, but this year it was time to revisit Thailand and take my first trip to China. Honestly, with weather as cold as it is in Beijing at this time of year, I never saw myself visiting China anytime soon, but as a stop over destination en route to/from Thailand, I thought why not. After choosing the longest layover time, I looked into things to do with eight hours to spare in the capital of China and lo-and-behold I found myself at one of the “New 7 Wonders of the World” – The Great Wall of China! – And The View From the Top came too! Before jumping to The Great Wall, let’s not forget the craziness yet awesomeness that is Bangkok, along with the amazing sceneries of one of Thailand’s beautiful islands; Koh Tao! The VFTT tells all…

 

So  I know its been a while (a long long while) but I’m back and so is the VFTT. After almost a year of not having travelled any where, I thought it was time for a break a way- in the Sun of course. A lover of all things exotic, culture and beautiful landscape, I spent 10 amazing days in Bali, Indonesia. After my trip to Thailand in 2013, I know i’d be back to South-East Asia in no time and with only 10 days to spare this time, I know i’ll be back again.

Capturing moments, experiences and tropical element; through vibrant colours, nature and pre-summer time vibes; these View From the Top shots are just a snippet of my first trip to Bali.

Ok so it’s a bit of a late post but hey, it’s better late than never right? After four long, exciting and adventurous months away, I concluded my travels in the beautiful land of Colombia. With minimal time in the cold capital, the VFTT soon fell back into line with some exotic shots from the north of the country and Caribbean coast that was Cartagena, Santa Marta and Parque Tayrona. From smooth black sand to crystal clear waters and bazaar packaged water, The VFTT’s South American journey gradually drew to an end.

…and it continues. As I hop, skip and jump around South America, I can’t help but snap away and with this “challenge” I set myself, the views get even more amazing. Well not my feet per se, but the surrounding views and the visual connotation attached. From the beach, to the bus stop, to the edge of the Earth, the VFTT couldn’t be more exciting. Ok, so I need more shoes but, hey- I’m a traveller (now) and  it’s true what they say, you really do “live in your flip flops” -well I sure do anyway.

I know with only 2 pairs, I am slacking but with all these Havaianas stores, the fashionista in me is bound to give in and I’ll end up with a huge variety; of yes, flip flops. As bazaar as I know it sounds, I’ve never seen so many and wanted them all and worse yet; believing they are all extremely different. Yes flip flops! For now I am just wearing these simple because I do not have the capacity to carry a selection of flip flops, never mind any other shoes. However, I have got my eye on a few for my return home, so watch this space because flip flops just got fashionable.
