Welcome to Window on the World, collection of my travel photos and stories from around the world.
My name is Devesh Patel, after working in computer software industry for more than 28 years, I took an early retirement in Jun 2017. Now, I spend my time doing what I love the most––traveling around the world, experiencing local culture, and trying out local cuisine and drink. So far, I’ve been to 109 countries and still counting.
If you are interested in exploring our wonderful world through photographs, you’ve come to the right place. All photos in this site are taken by me during my travels.
I started this project in April 2020, during lock-down because of the COVID-19 pandemic. As of Sep 14, 2021 this site has 5,256 photos in 256 Posts about 77 Countries/Regions. At the speed I am going, it will take me at least three years to add all 109 countries in this site. So, keep checking this site frequently for new travel stories and photos.
It is not easy to list all 109 countries on one single page, so I grouped them by Continent and also by year I visited them. I also created few special interest sections, that you might be interested in too.
NOTE: As this Website has thousands of Photos, you will have better experience if you view it on a larger screen like Tablet/iPad/Laptop/PC.
Special Interest Section: During my travels I visited many places with common themes, so decided to group those places in one post for easier access.
Special Interest Posts; I am passionate about taking sunset/sunrise pictures and trying local beer and other alcoholic drinks from the place I visit. Also, I don’t miss a chance to take a picture of Manhole covers, KM 0 Landmarks or Love Locks from the place I visit. Check out my posts below to read stories and view photos of special interests.
Countries Visited by Year: Select a year to view photos and read travel stories from the countries I visited during that year.
