An obsession with travel, architecture, dogs, horses, nature, and delicious food…
Covering our time in Sudan, Vietnam, the UK, and now Ecuador using all my cameras – a Canon EOS 40D, a Panasonic Lumix, a Rolleiflex, a gopro, and even an ipad.
Stunning photos, really blown away by them! And Tala’s v photogenic too!
I’ve enjoyed your blog so much that I have nominated you for The Versatile Blogger Award. Congratulations ! For more information, just link to my page:
Just went through your blog, regarding your interest in your dog and Hanoi. We are moving to Hanoi and are having a great deal of trouble finding a flight to Hanoi. We can reach Saigon, but from there things get funny. Would you know anything about this?
Where are you flying from? We used Qatar which comes via BKK if coming from Doha (Qatar airways probably flies to most places in Europe… what kind of dog do you have?
You may have already received this award, but I wanted to recognize you for your lovely blog. Here is my nomination for “One Lovely Blog” for you. Click here for details:
Hi, thank you so much for appreciating my blog – I still feel I am not familiar with enough blogs to be able to nominate 10 others as part of the nomination process. How do you usually discover other blogs other than freshly pressed?
I go and search under a category name like photography, travel, etc. There are several dog blogs that I follow as well. No worries, about having to nominate someone. Just accept and enjoy!
I really am loving this blog. Myself and my papillion chihuahua mix are moving to Hanoi in about 6 weeks, and this blog is making me feel like I’m not insane for bringing her. You never know, maybe we will run into each other!
Thank you and I am glad you are enjoying it. Please do get in touch when you get to Hanoi!
Wish I had found your blog a month ago. I’m now back in the USA
So I did end up getting to Hanoi, although I had to make the decision to leave my little pup in Canada with my mom. Things with the job have been unstable, and I needed to be more flexible. However, I am in the city and have been meaning to get to Lenin Park. Perhaps I will catch you there one day!
Love your blog, Jura! Your photos are gorgeous! When do you start teaching classes? I want to learn from you! So good to see you and Piers a couple of weeks ago. Here’s hoping we’ll make it to Hanoi in the next year . . . xoxo
We met you in Ciputra. We’re the couple with the black Phu Quoc, Beau. I was interested in your dog and came upon your website! It would be great if we could meet up for a coffe and a dog walk. You dog is beautiful and I love your pictures on your blog. Please contact me at: 01658 333 142. Btw, Tala is a beautiful name.
Sayeh and Mark
Fantastic pictures, Jura! Your blog’s really interesting I’m hooked : ) Having such a good impression of Hanoi so far and will try some of your recommendations for restaurants.
Many thanks for visiting dragonshades and showing me your blog.
Gorgeous pictures, can’t wait to see more 🙂
Hi jura! I am a member of minpin club which often meet together every sunday afternoon :))) Remember me :)) My minpin names Mia that has clear red and a same face with Tala :))) contact me in my email :))))
Real nice stories and pics. Enjoyed your first Half Marathon at Angkor & your Burma posts & learning more about Hanoi. Also Inle Lake – perhaps similar to Tonle Sap in Cambodia. Looking forward to reading more here. I’m told that you liked my Street Foot Vietnam blog – if so, many thanks. Owen
Thanks! Glad you have been enjoying my blog. It is sort of similar to Tonle sap except you do t get the dramatic changes in water levels over the seasons and it think historically the people who live on the Tonle sap have been poorer than those on lake inle who seem to have a lot of flourishing cottage industries such as silk and silver. Yes I did like your food post. Where are you based?
Hi Jura – I am living in New Zealand. Yes we were at Tonle Sap during the 2011 flood season. I must put up some pics on my page – and of course, some of Angkor. Cheers.
Oh, being a photo enthusiast…always interested in your camera used? (We had a Rolleiflex TLR in the family too, sadly now gone – but I still use my Olympus OM-1 film camera.) Thanks again, Owen
Oh that is too bad that you no longer have it. In addition to the Rolleiflex I usually use my canon 50d but it is so bulky. For quick shots of quirky hanoi I have been using my ipad more and more as I always tend to have it on me.
Jura – IMO you have a ‘photographer’s eye’, so the camera is immaterial…except for old camera geeks like myself! These days I use a pocketable digital – unobtrusive & quick for travelling. I like your documenting everyday life…eg. the Hoan Kiem Turtle, Goldfish Day…and Tala. Cheers, Owen.
Great Blog and photos. I was searching for Burma photos and came across yours. I’d really appreciate it if you would link to mine at http://www.julieadolan.com/blog . I don’t have too many posts yet, but I am slowly writing up my travels – including Vietnam and Burma!
`dear juraphotos, we have just taken some pups off the street in khartoum and will have to go through ireland on our way to china to our next teaching gig. do you have any suggestions for how to get through all the paperwork that travelling with a dog requires? `did you have to quarantine your dog in the `isle of man? did you have to quarantine the dog in hanoi?
Oh gosh that is quite a complicated route! Can you leave me your email and I’ll send you a proper message.
I see your email now. I’ll send you an email today or tomorrow!
