17 Feb, 2018 in Timisoara

One of the nicest attractions in Romanian Timisoara is a step back in time to visit an old Romanian Banat village. It’s a bit out of town, easily approachable by Uber, and I was the only tourist visiting at the time. Lots of old houses, furnished with old furniture to give you a taste of […]

16 Feb, 2018 in San Jose

I didn’t spent much time in San Jose, but I did get to venture out and see some funky attractions in the area. One of those is the Sanatorium Dr. Carlos Duran Cartin, about half an hour to the east on the way to Irazú Volcano. It’s not entirely clear how this became a tourist attraction, but […]

13 Feb, 2018 in Luxembourg

One gloomy day on a weekend last year I decided to rent a car and head out to see Luxembourg City. I spent the day exploring the city highlights (e.g., Casemates du Bock), making the circle heading east and then north to take in the scenic views overlooking the valley and the nearby mountains. Even […]

8 Feb, 2018 in North Holland

After coming back from the central America trip and on my way to moving back to Asia I had a layover in the Netherlands for a day, just enough time for me to say my farewell to this wonderful country and see a bit more of an area I have yet to explore north of […]

5 Feb, 2018 in Varadero, Visions

The last stop on my trip to Havana, just before wrapping up the two weeks roaming around this fascinating land, was in expat mecca Varadero beach east of Havana on the northern coastline. It’s essentially a very long beach stretch with fluffy white sand and translucent blue waters. I was based a bit outside the tourist […]

4 Feb, 2018 in Olympia

Olympia is considered one of the important tourist sites in the Peloponnese island, where the olympic games started back in 8th century BC. As in many of the Greek sites, what you’ll mostly see are ruins, accompanied by a decent museum neary, a taste of the former glory and worship of human anatomy and competition. There […]

30 Jan, 2018 in Timisoara

During my last month in Europe before moving to Asia, I was on a rush to try and taste as much as possible in Europe, and a quick Wizzair flight away from my base in the Netherlands was the Romanian Timisoara. So I spent a weekend there, exploring the streets of “Vienna of the East” […]

28 Jan, 2018 in Santa Clara

Santa Clara is often skipped when traveling in Cuba, and I can understand why. Compared to the other destinations in Cuba, it’s unimpressive, and the tourist highlights may seem disappointing. Perhaps the only reasons people do make it over is to hear a bit about revolutionary hero Che Guevara and visit his exaggerated Mausoleum and the near by […]

27 Jan, 2018 in Vilnius

Those who know me personally probably know these two things about me – (1) I really like funky speciality museums, and I’d choose those over fancy old school museums any day, (2) I take a special interest in the human mind, especially biases and heuristics. Which is why the VILNIL Museum of Illusions in Vilnius was […]

24 Jan, 2018 in Lucerne, Visions

Earlier this year I had a chance to visit Geneva and Lausanne, at the French speaking side of Switzerland, but it was only later that year that I was able to take a trip to see the northern German speaking side, with Zurich being the big city of that area. I did a few gorgeous mountain top […]
