Wall street NYC New York (7)

I’ve been to New York City so many times, but somehow never really got around to taking shots of the famous Wall Street. Back in my 6th grade year in the US I remember coming out of the metro on Wall Street and for the first time in my life seeing the endless row of […]

24 May, 2016 in Florence
Piazza della Signoria Florence Italy-003

Piazza della Signoria is seen by many to be the heart and core of Florence. It’s definitely considered one of the tourist highlights, as in the area you have Loggia della Signoria, the Uffizi Gallery, the Palace of the Tribunale della Mercanzia, the Palazzo Uguccioni, and the Palace of the Assicurazioni Generali, all gorgeous buildings dating […]

National Pantheon - Lisbon Portugal (3)

The 17th century Church of Santa Engrácia is now the official Portuguese National Pantheon serving as the burial grounds for famous figures in Portugal. Poets, thinkers, politicians, generals, religious figures, leaders, it’s a wide collection of people that are at the political consensus. It’s an impressive building, the architecture is glorious, and best thing of all, ofcourse, […]

Sant Ferran Castle Figueres Catalonia Spain (18)

Figueres in eastern Spain isn’t all about the life of Dali, it has much more to offer. It has one of the largest army fortifications in Europe – the Sant Ferran Castle. Though it isn’t grand, and there is no royal accommodation to visit, the vast fortifications are definitely worth exploring. While I was visiting, I […]

20 May, 2016 in Moscow
Cathedral of Christ the Saviour Moscow Russia -004

Walking distance from the Kremlin in Moscow is one of the tallest churches in the world. Most of my Moscow visit was sunny and cheerful, but my visit to the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour was during gray cloudy weather which made the church seem even more striking. It has gone through some hectic history, almost completely destroyed […]

19 May, 2016 in Milan
Teatro alla Scala - The Elixir of Love - Milan Italy (1)

While visiting Milan for the 2015 Food Expo, we wanted to get a taste of the local culture scene and where better to do that than the 18th century world famous opera-house La Scala. Being the last minute tourists that we are we have not booked a ticket in advance, and just went in the […]

Museu de Fogueres Alicante Spain (1)

Alicante in Spain has a couple of top attractions, like the beaches and the gorgeous mountain-top Santa Bárbara Castle. Other than that, it’s a pretty sleepy town. There are a couple of smaller attractions, which I finished in about an hour or two of walking through downtown, both featuring some of the cultural heritage of the […]

17 May, 2016 in Limburg
Alden Biesen Castle Rijkhoven Belgium (1)

At the small village of Rijkhoven in the eastern Belgium region of Limburg bordering with the Dutch Limburg and the city of Maastricht is a 16th century castle – Alden Biesen. It’s not the grandest or the most beautiful castle in the area, but if you’re in the area, or looking for a day trip […]

16 May, 2016 in Amalfi and Capri
Amalfi drive Italy (4)

The Amalfi region in southern Italy is absolutely breath-taking. Mountains overlooking a long coast, clear blue water next to wild green, ancient Italian architecture meets hiking and beaches, crazy long winding roads with insane Italian drivers. It might be a bit over commercialized and touristic, but as far as tourism goes, this is probably as good […]

Visions of Girona Spain (3)

Girona is a charming often overlooked town. I wasn’t planning to do anything much there myself, but my cheap RyanAir landed in that airport, and I heard it has a charming old quarter and great views from the university and so decided to stay the overnight and have a look, and I’m very glad that […]
