20 Mar, 2019 in Chuncheon

I visited Chuncheon in South Korea as a daytrip from Seoul. The area is quite spectacular, with nature scenic views of mountains, rivers, and lakes, a lovely Korean countryside atmosphere. It’s mostly catered for Korean domestic tourists, with attractions like water sports , cable cars, slides, observation decks, sky walks, and an endless array of […]

10 Mar, 2019 in Bangkok, Visions

Thailand was my first stop in Asia, where I spent over 3 months, on and off. It’s been 14 years since I left, and did not have a chance to visit back until this year. I was curious to see what I’ll remember and how I’ll feel about things. To my surprise, there’s very little I […]

8 Mar, 2019 in Fukuoka

While visiting the Fukuoka area in Japan I took a one day getaway trip towards the east to see the Kitakyushu area, and make a stop on the way to do one of my favorite things when I travel – go up cable cars. The higher the better, the more spectacular the views – the happier […]

7 Mar, 2019 in Seoul

In one of my recent visits to Seoul I was looking for something fun and cultural to do and saw that there’s a funky Argentinian show in town –  Fuerza Bruta. I bought tickets without doing too much digging and so wasn’t sure what to expect, and so I was completely taken by surprise and […]

26 Feb, 2019 in Guangdong

Just when I think I covered all the main attractions in my region of Hong Kong someone brings up something new I have not heard of before resulting in me rushing over to have a look and look for new adventures. The Yingxi Fenglin Corridor Scenic Area is only a couple of hours drive from Guangzhou, […]

22 Feb, 2019 in Sokcho

During the last autumn, I went to South Korea to get a bit of real autumn feeling with some colors. Of all the places I visited, the nicest autumn colors were at the lovely Seoraksan National Park. I was originally planning to take the lift up to the mountains and hike a bit, but it was […]

20 Feb, 2019 in Coimbra, Obidos, Visions

On my last trip to Portugal, I did a road trip down from Porto towards Lisbon, going through the mountains and making stops in key cities along the way. There are quite a few remarkable cities to visit on that route, of which I choose two – Obidos and Coimbra. Obidos is a small fortified […]

17 Feb, 2019 in Tel Aviv - Yaffo

Beginning of this year I had the chance to go back and revisit a lovely university campus in Israel – the Tel Aviv University. Following a meeting in a nearby coffee shop with some of the local faculty, I spent a couple of hours roaming the lovely campus. I’ve been here before, I’m sure of […]

14 Feb, 2019 in Genoa

Had less than a day to roam around Genoa, so had to prioritize visits to attractions. Of all the museums available in Genoa, I decided on Galata, the maritime and history museum of the city and region with some funky addition of visiting a submarine. The main museum has great exhibitions about sea travel and sea […]

13 Feb, 2019 in Danang

To me, the top attraction while visiting Danang at the center of Vietnam, were the marble mountains. About 20 min down south are five marble and limestone hills rising out of nowhere. Offering grand views of Danang and the central Vietnam coastline, you can hike all over the mountains, going up to mountain top to […]
