22 Jun, 2017 in Bonn

Around this time last year I made a quick daytrip during a very hectic month to see the nearby Bonn. During that time there was a hot-air balloon festival taking place at the Rheinaue Park, a large park at the center of Bonn, although there were only setting up when I visited. I took a stroll […]

20 Jun, 2017 in Maastricht

Like caves and tunnels? Then Maastricht is just the place for you. In this very small area of the Limburg province in the southern part of Netherlands are an endless array of tunnels dug deep into the regional hills. You don’t get many hills in the Netherlands, and since they’re made from lime stone they’re […]

16 Jun, 2017 in Daytrips from Sapporo

I spent the last summer in Sapporo in Hokkaido, and was looking for daytrips from Sapporo. Otaru was a daytrip promoted to me as the Japanese Netherlands, in that it featured ‘canals’. Japanese tourists from all over Japan who flew in to cool down in the north would go to Otaru in expectation that it would […]

15 Jun, 2017 in Bagan

Following a morning flight from Yangon to Bagan, I took a taxi to Old Bagan to begin my temple run. There are those who do this with horse carriages, some who do this with electric scooters (which is what I did on day 2), but for the first day, I just did my Bagan temple […]

14 Jun, 2017 in Sicily

Visible from almost every corner or Sicily is the impressive active volcano mountain – Etna. Occasionally it erupts and has a devastating impact on the area, but most time it’s on fair low heat and visitors can hike up all the way to the top and get a glimpse of the volcano. We were less […]

13 Jun, 2017 in Vienna

During the last day following my conference in Vienna I had a bit of time to roam around and explore the old town. I did that the previous days but only night time, and on a clear blue sky day Vienna was absolutely gorgeous. Wonderful architecture, culture and art in every corner, magnificent buildings which […]

8 Jun, 2017 in Bonn

Around this time last year I made a quick daytrip during a very hectic month to see the nearby Bonn. The best way to get your bearing and see some of the beauty of Bonn is to go to one of its several mountain top castles. I’ll mention two I’ve been to – Burg Drachenfels & […]

7 Jun, 2017 in Uncategorized

I don’t visit Brussels very often, but I recently had a chance to see new parts of Brussels and experience some of its cultural life during the Brussels Museum Night. With one ticket, you can attend many of Brussel’s galleries and museums with live performances and special events taking place in practically every corner. Didn’t […]

5 Jun, 2017 in Madrid

Madrid has long been on my TODO list, but it was only the end of last year around holiday time that I finally made it. Since it was the holidays, most of the things in Spain were closed, but I was able to visit a few attractions that were open, and perhaps the most famous of […]

2 Jun, 2017 in Bruges, Visions

Ever since moving to Europe and living next to the Belgium border, I’ve been hearing that I have to go visit Bruges, but it wasn’t until fairly recently that I found the opportunity to go for a short visit before flying out of Brussels. Yep, Bruges is gorgeous, history, gigantic cathedrals, canals, windmills, chocolates, swans, […]
