13 Dec, 2018 in Gyeongju

My last stop in the trip of southern South Korea was Gyeongju, the city of strange old tombs. I started my walk on the northern side, and soon came across large green unnatural looking hills, that marked the beginning of a large park of gardens and tombs with various old archaeological sites, like an old observatory, […]

7 Dec, 2018 in Lijiang

Yunnan province and Lijiang were some of the nicest visits I’ve had to China so far, and I’ve been around – to many parts of China. Lijiang has a very well kept old town, and some world class attractions. At the center of the old town is Lion Rock Mountain with its Wangu Tower overlooking […]

1 Dec, 2018 in HK Places

After so long of living in Hong Kong there are very few places I have not yet visited. Strangely enough, western HK island, between Kennedy Town and Pok Fu Lam, was one of them, so I never got to see the new large business area with the big complex of residential buildings and shopping malls […]

30 Nov, 2018 in HK Hikes

I’ve visited Hong Kong’s Lamma Island several times in the years I’ve lived in Hong Kong (example1, example2), but the last time was over 7 years ago, and it was mainly on the same path crossing the island from north to south-east (Yung Shue Wan Ferry Pier). This year, I went back to revisit, and […]

29 Nov, 2018 in Normandy, Visions

In my recent visit to France, I rented a car and did a drive towards the northwest to see Rouen and the French northwest coastline, to see Fécamp & Étretat. This is a photo summary of my trip, starting from Roeun, my visit to the NEOMA business school campus, and then the breathtaking coastline.     […]

29 Nov, 2018 in Guangdong, Visions

By now, I’ve explored most of what Hong Kong has to offer and so I find myself venturing out to the nearby mainland China Guangdong province. When I ask my Hong Kong friends if they go travel in Guangdong they usually reply there isn’t much to visit or see there, it’s not like Guangdong is […]

22 Nov, 2018 in Turin

I love specialty museums, and I love the cinema, and so there is little that can excite me as coming across a cinema specialty museum, like the one I found out about when visiting Turin. It’s one of the best museums I’ve visited in recent years, and it is so well done I wish I […]

21 Nov, 2018 in Eastern Denmark

Denmark has some wonderful natural scenery and one of the main attractions is the south-eastern tip of Denmark – the Møns Klint cliffs. These are 6kms of white chalk cliffs near to clear blue waters and surrounded by forest green. Lots of lovely hikes in the area, and some fancy old estates to visit, and […]

20 Nov, 2018 in Fukuoka, Visions

In my recent visit to Japan I had a chance to visit the Fukuoka region, and a quick fast train away is Kitakyushu, an old industrial city. Near a very large trading port, surrounded by mountains, one of the first things I did was – ofcourse – to catch a cable car to the top to […]

14 Nov, 2018 in Sokcho, Visions

In one of my recent visits to South Korea I made my way to the east coast near the coastline around Sokcho. Aside from the quite beach-side getaway from Korea, there were lots of nice little attractions, such as lively local food markets, gorgeous Buddhist temples, and great observation decks with panoramic views of the area. […]
