Last Christmas I had the pleasure of visiting the lovely Spanish Malaga. Lots to see and do in the city, and I managed to see most of the main highlights, the old historic center,  Palmeral De Las Sorpresas with a boat trip, Castillo de Gibralfaro, and even Noria Mirador Princess ferris wheel. But the biggest attractions of […]

Last summer I did a scooter trip roaming through the Taiwanese islands of Penghu. Combing gorgeous beaches, fascinating local cultural life, war history, it was a trip to remember, exactly the kind of adventure I like. Each of the spots I stopped at had something special and me being there on my own made it […]

27 Aug, 2017 in Granada

I’ve been to southern Spain before, touring Malaga, Seville, and other gorgeous cities in the area, but haven’t made it to Granada and have been meaning to go back. This summer I finally had the golden opportunity with a conference taking place in the region, and so I could roam the city before and after […]

Last spring I discovered Poland in a first visit to the lovely town of Poznan, a cheap Wizzair flight from my European base town. It far exceeded my expectations, which would explain why I visited Poland four more times in the year since. It has a charming old town square area, a large lake area […]

While roaming around Sicily with my family we made a stop to the northern town of Cefalu with a gorgeous beach stretch and a charming old town. It captures the essence of the Sicilian experience, historical forts and cathedrals, old pedestrian area with narrow streets offering a variety of restaurants and shopping options, beach chill-out […]

I was invited to visit Lausanne University, and was put up in the old city center of Lausanne. The city is gorgeous, and the old town is spread out of a few hills and valleys. I didn’t have much time to explore everything, but I did take a few strolls around the center, visiting the […]

To wrap up my visit to Nagoya last summer, I want to share a few more Nagoya gems with you that I neglected to mention so far. There are several Nagoya attractions, like the Nagoya Castle and the Toyota Museum of Industry and Technology, but most big Japanese cities are just fun to explore around on foot. […]

Earlier this year I visited Lodz in Poland to tour the area and attend a local conference. During my stay, I did a couple of day trips, and one of those was to Czestochowka, perhaps best known for its Black Madonna of Częstochowa at Jasna Góra. We had a local guide take us around the town, starting out […]

Vienna is a gorgeous city, with much to see and do, but perhaps one of the top attractions is the Schonbrunn Palace and gardens. Since my time in Vienna was somewhat limited, and I’ve seen my fair share of European castles and palaces, I decided not to take the tour inside, but rather just explore the […]

Lots of curious things happened when I was staying at the Sapporo area in the northern Hokkaido region of Japan during the summer. Happened a few times that I took a bus hoping to get to one attraction and then through some misunderstanding and miscommunication with the local Japanese ended up visiting a completely different […]
