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 […]

16 Jul, 2018 in San Jose

There are a few nice attractions away from Costa Rica’s capital San Jose that are worth stopping by. I fast realized I’d rather venture out of San Jose and rented a car to explore the region. On my various excursions in the area I was looking for somewhere to chill for a couple of hours […]

14 Jul, 2018 in Vinales

When visiting Cuba I landed in Havana and spend a few days exploring, and I then headed out for a circular tour of Cuba, starting from northwestern Cuba in the Vinales region. It’s a beautiful country side with lots to see and explore, and some people linger for long. I did a daytrip from Havana […]

12 Jul, 2018 in HK Attractions

Just when I think I’ve seen everything in Hong Kong, especially museum wise, I run into a new surprise. Away from the tourist beaten track in Tseun Wan, just near the MTR is the Sam Tung Uk Museum, a 200 years old walled village turned museum. Will give you a feel for the Hong Kong history, […]

10 Jul, 2018 in Heredia

La Paz Waterfall Gardens Nature Park was a bit of a surprise. It was my first “eco” attraction in Costa Rica and after having heard of how well Costa Rica does eco preservation I admit to expecting a very authentic dirty jungle experience with tarzan guides taking us on an adventure. La Paz is not […]

5 Jul, 2018 in Copenhagen, Visions

Made it to Denmark, finally, after so many years of making plans for it. I guess it took getting away from the Netherlands and moving to Asia to be able to make a plan to make that happen. So, when visiting back in Europe, decided to make a short detour from a visit to France […]

5 Jul, 2018 in Nanjing, Visions

It’s been 6 years since I last visited Nanjing with my father, and I recently had a chance to go back and visit for a work-related trip. I had a day or so to also wonder around the university area and explore Nanjing on foot, which led me to see Nanjing in a new light […]

4 Jul, 2018 in Ulsan, Visions

Following my quick getaway from Hong Kong to Busan, I headed up north for a quick visit to Ulsan. It’s a rather industrial town without too many well-known tourist attractions, but I made the most of it, by going to the beach side and hiking one of the small islands overlooking the coast line. I […]

25 Jun, 2018 in Granada

Granada was, by far, my favorite place in Nicaragua. Yeah, I guess I’m a bit spoiled, and Granada is so more easier to like than everything else I visited in Nicaragua, so it is possible that if I had longer to linger and explore the rest and took more time to get used to things, […]
