In 2011, I traveled considerably more, and longer, yet I ended up visiting countries I had previously visited, save for only one country (Antigua) I visited for the first time.
2012 was different. Even though I spent less time traveling, I visited 6 countries for the first time (Philippines, Brunei, Palau, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Bhutan), as well as some repeat visits to India, Malaysia, Thailand etc. The next few days I will be uploading photos from those countries. Second stop: Brunei
That same mosque again, but different angle. Omar Ali Saifuddien mosque in Bandar Seri Begawan, capital of the Sultanate of Brunei. Taken after sunset, unfortunately it was too windy for reflections.

Brunei's water taxi links the Bandar Seri Begawan's waterfront to the wonderful water village of Kampung Ayer
These water taxis ply along the Brunei River and can easily be hailed from different docking points along the river banks. You should be prepared to negotiate on the fares. The water taxis resemble wooden speed boats. These water taxis can take you around the water village.
Speedboats are available for travelling to Temburong, a district of Brunei. These speedboats can easily be distinguished because of their blue colour. Travelling in one of the Brunei's water taxis is a unique experience, one of its kinds.
As Ramadan was in full swing I wasn't allowed inside.
