27 Feb, 2018 in Greece, Visions
Tags: , , ,

Our final stop in Greece, just before heading back to the Athens airport and flying out, was Corinth. We were staying in a nearby Airbnb, and a mere 10 minute drive away we arrived at the almost deserted  archeological site. A demanding hike up, which I was very proud that our little team was able […]

Trinidad is a lovely colonial town, but with a dark history. The day following my arrival I took a private taxi guide to take me around the nearby highlights, without really looking into what it’s going to be about. To my great surprise it was a day dedicated to the sugar slavery taking place in […]

One of the nicest attractions in Romanian Timisoara is a step back in time to visit an old Romanian Banat village. It’s a bit out of town, easily approachable by Uber, and I was the only tourist visiting at the time. Lots of old houses, furnished with old furniture to give you a taste of […]

I didn’t spent much time in San Jose, but I did get to venture out and see some funky attractions in the area. One of those is the Sanatorium Dr. Carlos Duran Cartin, about half an hour to the east on the way to Irazú Volcano. It’s not entirely clear how this became a tourist attraction, but […]

13 Feb, 2018 in Luxembourg

One gloomy day on a weekend last year I decided to rent a car and head out to see Luxembourg City. I spent the day exploring the city highlights (e.g., Casemates du Bock), making the circle heading east and then north to take in the scenic views overlooking the valley and the nearby mountains. Even […]

After coming back from the central America trip and on my way to moving back to Asia I had a layover in the Netherlands for a day, just enough time for me to say my farewell to this wonderful country and see a bit more of an area I have yet to explore north of […]

The last stop on my trip to Havana, just before wrapping up the two weeks roaming around this fascinating land, was in expat mecca Varadero beach east of Havana on the northern coastline. It’s essentially a very long beach stretch with fluffy white sand and translucent blue waters. I was based a bit outside the tourist […]

Olympia is considered one of the important tourist sites in the Peloponnese island, where the olympic games started back in 8th century BC. As in many of the Greek sites, what you’ll mostly see are ruins, accompanied by a decent museum neary, a taste of the former glory and worship of human anatomy and competition. There […]
