St Simeon

One of the most impressive temples in ruins I've seen in my life: St Simeon in Syria. I wonder how much of all this will be left after the war :(

Sketching at Portugal

Some oldies. Portugal was the first country I visited when I was very small and I still like it like the first day :)

Pubs and restaurants at Alaska

Where you go for beer and food and you get it ... double. BTW, rather than directions, you need GPS coordinates for Double Musky, but it's totally worth it :D

Easter Island: a sketchbook

I've decided to compile all my sketches from Easter Island into a single booklet. Although they are pretty old, I still like them as a whole :)

The Bats & Snake Temple

During a visit to Bali, we were traveling around and found this temple in a cave at dusk, called the Bats & Snake Cave. I recall I commented to some local guy about the symbology associated to bats and snakes in local folklore and he simply negated and pointed inside: "there's the snake" to a REALLY HUGE light green snake moving inside, and out when the sun and a cloud of bats a-la-Batman flew out of the place in a second "and here are the bats". Served me right, too :D

Tomb Raider (I)

After spending quite some time traveling, this summer I settled down (at the beach) for the newest Tomb Raider game. I recall the fist game as love at first sight, what with the hidden ruins, lost legends , faraway places and a faithful desert eagle, too. However, I had grown weary of the games because they did not change much through the years, so even though I bought the former, I have not played it yet. Tomb Raider 2013 has been a pleasant surprise because, finally, they changed (simplified) the interface and added some cool new features. In fact, I'll probably play it again.

Since I did a short comic book when I played the first one, I've gone for one of my usual game diaries with this. It's not an RPG, though, so there's probably more action and less storytelling than usual :)
