Orange and Green Travel

Visually exploring the world at large

I have spent nine of the last fifteen months living abroad - first, for six months in Chittagong, Bangladesh, and then for three in Lyon, France. This period of travel has provided innumerable adventures, and I have managed to capture a portion of them on the travel blog entitled "Orange and Green Travel" which I started when I first moved to South Asia. Entries are based in my photography and decorated with my wandering ruminations.

I designed the website by modifying an existing WordPress template. I am generally pleased with WordPress as a blog manager, but for some reason my site has a tendency to take a long time (10 to 20 seconds) to load the first time you visit. It is usually speedier from that point on, so please bear with this initial delay!
