Coming down south from Havana Cuba to explore the southern coastline, I had very limited time to visit Cienfuegos and see the area. I arrived at my airbnb with a lovely local host, and asked for help in trying to make the most. With his help, I was able to really see a lot of the […]

This summer I spent some time in Europe, and after a visit to France and Denmark and before a visit to Finland, I had a few days to explore new regions of Italy I haven’t explored before. I first did Turin and the nearby mountains, and then made it down to the coastline for a […]

In my recent visit to France I had a chance to visit some of the local universities. I spent some time in Paris Nanterre University and roamed around Paris, but also had a chance to go visit Normandy and visit a former classmate now faculty in NOEMA, one of the French international business schools. It’s a nice […]

On my recent visit to Busan in southern South Korea I wasn’t expecting to go far from the city, but somehow made it all the way up to Gyeongju, a small town with great historical attractions and some wonderful scenic views. I started off with the royal tombs – Daereungwon, Cheonmachong, and Gyelim – with a very […]

During the summer of 2018 I was invited to visit Paris Nanterre University and was hosted by some of the local professors. I arrived after several hectic weeks of student demonstration, so the campus was severely damaged, and filled with graffiti, all quite shocking. That tragedy aside, the old campus is quite compact and easily walkable, […]

Just when I think I’ve visited everything that there is to visit in Hong Kong I accidentally come across a new spot that reminds me how wonderful Hong Kong is. From an unexplored nearly deserte ferry pier next the Chinese University of Hong Kong departs a one hour ferry take goes through beautiful Plover Cove area, […]

On a recent visit to Shanghai in China I took the opportunity to visit an area I had not yet had the chance to explore well at the center of old colonial Shanghai near the Fuxing park. I started off with the park, with some great people watching, continued to the nearby commercial area and […]

I had the most wonderful time roaming around Denmark for a few days and experience Danish culture. Starting off in Copenhagen, I did a circle towards the south, heading north-west, and finally completing the circle heading back east to Copenhagen. On that route, I visited Viking culture in Roskilde, the cliffs of Møns Klint in the island of […]

This summer I was invited for a few weeks to Paris, and was looking for new things to explore in the area. A local I met who grow up in Chantilly strongly recommended I check it out, a quick daytrip from Paris, so I decided to rent a car and combine Chantilly with exploring the […]

Even after so many years roaming around Hong Kong, I still somehow manage to find new spots to cover. Repulse Bay is a beach on the southern side of Hong Kong Island, with big shopping malls and hotels nearby, and a large expat community. To me, not really a sun boy, it was something I […]
