With nowhere to go it is time to look back to my personal favourites from 2017.

The first image is from India where I managed to take some of my best and most exotic images. India is overcrowded, loud, dirty, poor and the traffic is extremely dangerous. But India is also one of the most amazing places that I have ever visited. There is breathtaking sights and buildings everywhere, the people are very friendly and the food in great though some give me diarrhoea. But I never learned which food or spices so to eat there remained exciting, like Russian roulette.

Of course there is the Taj Mahal that practically everybody in the world knows and that welcomes millions visitors a year. But when I was in Hyderabad I found another place that is even older than the Taj Mahal, almost as beautiful and most of all practically unknown and therefore unspoiled by tourism. The Qutub Shahi Tombs. When I was there the last time the place was under restoration and the entry was a couple of Rupees. I was the only foreigner and almost the only visitor.

An amazing experience for sure because other important ancient buildings in India are extremely crowded. Not only because of international tourist but because of domestic tourists. The most extreme is the Taj Mahal but of course the Red Fort, The Lotus Temple, The Charminar and all the other places are similar.  Don’t go there
