Bhaktapur, 1999: these images are a moment in time from a journey to savor the beauty of this UNESCO World Heritage Site, now in ruins from the April 2015 earthquake.
This Sceptered Isle, this England
The English have been among the world’s great travelers for centuries. The age-old empire may now be behind them, but today, the world comes to England: it is one of the top 10 global tourist destinations and one of the most multi-cultural countries on the planet. For tourists, it’s not all Buckingham Palace and royalty and Harrods. The storied isle serves up fine cuisine, challenging hiking, endless literary references, and a huge dose of history from Roman ruins to Norman castles to World War II secret tunnels.
