20 Aug, 2018 in Paris

During the summer of 2018 I was invited to visit Paris Nanterre University and was hosted by some of the local professors. I arrived after several hectic weeks of student demonstration, so the campus was severely damaged, and filled with graffiti, all quite shocking. That tragedy aside, the old campus is quite compact and easily walkable, […]

13 Aug, 2018 in HK Hikes

Just when I think I’ve visited everything that there is to visit in Hong Kong I accidentally come across a new spot that reminds me how wonderful Hong Kong is. From an unexplored nearly deserte ferry pier next the Chinese University of Hong Kong departs a one hour ferry take goes through beautiful Plover Cove area, […]

11 Aug, 2018 in Shanghai

On a recent visit to Shanghai in China I took the opportunity to visit an area I had not yet had the chance to explore well at the center of old colonial Shanghai near the Fuxing park. I started off with the park, with some great people watching, continued to the nearby commercial area and […]

8 Aug, 2018 in Denmark

I had the most wonderful time roaming around Denmark for a few days and experience Danish culture. Starting off in Copenhagen, I did a circle towards the south, heading north-west, and finally completing the circle heading back east to Copenhagen. On that route, I visited Viking culture in Roskilde, the cliffs of Møns Klint in the island of […]

6 Aug, 2018 in Around Paris, Visions

This summer I was invited for a few weeks to Paris, and was looking for new things to explore in the area. A local I met who grow up in Chantilly strongly recommended I check it out, a quick daytrip from Paris, so I decided to rent a car and combine Chantilly with exploring the […]

4 Aug, 2018 in HK Places

Even after so many years roaming around Hong Kong, I still somehow manage to find new spots to cover. Repulse Bay is a beach on the southern side of Hong Kong Island, with big shopping malls and hotels nearby, and a large expat community. To me, not really a sun boy, it was something I […]

3 Aug, 2018 in Turin, Visions

This summer I got to spend some time in Europe, and after a visit to France and Denmark and before a visit to Finland, I had a few days to explore new regions of Italy I haven’t explored before. The chosen base was Turin, up on the north west near the mountains, and so I […]

2 Aug, 2018 in Helsinki, Visions

Was hoping to take my sister to cool down a bit from the hot summer down in southern Europe and when I mentioned Finland she was immediately into it. We’ve both been wanting to visit, and this seemed like a good opportunity. Helsinki was our first stop, a pretty laid back capital city with a […]

21 Jul, 2018 in Gyeongju

My last stop on my recent trip to southern South Korea around Busan was to Gyeongju. About to wrap things up on my last day I went to visit Bulguksa Temple, and when taking the bus back to city center I noticed a funky building and a big sign for Expo. I quickly realized I probably […]

18 Jul, 2018 in Colombo

My first day in Sri Lanka was spent roaming around Colombo, the capital city, on foot. I wasn’t sure what to expect, and whether it’s at all walkable, but it all turned out alright, with various minor attractions along the way, and a walkable coastline, to get a taste of local life. I started off […]
