Since we are still on the subject of rivers, let us also feature those outside Malaysia. I've walked along the lengths of such reknowned rivers like the Thames in London, the Seine in Paris, the Rhine at Frankfurt and Mainz, the Danube at the outskirts of Vienna and the Elbe in Dresden, east of Germany but sadly I didn't keep pictures of those times.
I only seriously started taking pictures of my travels after the remains of my great great great grandfather of mine Laksamana (royal admiral) Muhammad Amin was brought back from exile in Singapore to be reburied at the Perak royal mausoleum in Bukit Chandan 9 September 2006. Look at the old article The return of Admiral Muhammad Amin's remains to the royal mausoleum of Perak. You see I attended the ceremony and a friend asked me to take pictures and write an article for his publication. Soon I started blogging and the rest is history.
It's just since that I've travelled not so far overseas. My forays where limited mainly to Aceh, Singapore, parts of southern Thailand and Brunei. During those visits I was mainly concerned in finding tombs of outstanding personalities of olden days such as that of kings and saints apart from old mosque and place with historical value. Thus forgive me if I lack emphasis on other things.
Still never mind... I do have some materials on rivers made into articles albeit not so extensive. These should be relevant enough to our current topic "Fascination for rivers"...
Despite the fact that I've been to Aceh 4 times and travelled far across its landscape I have only two articles to present and even that only on one river. God willing if I have the opportunity to go there again I would make amends.
From Syiah Kuala to Kreung Aceh... To Lamuri and the fortress of Indrapatra...
1. Aceh river
In contrast to my take on Aceh, I've paid more attention to the freshwater network of Brunei. Perhaps the fact that they have what they claimed as the biggest water settlement in the world helps. They also have at least one beautiful location of a tomb close besides a river...
2. Brunei river
3. Belait river
