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 […]

8 Feb, 2018 in North Holland

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 […]

4 Feb, 2018 in Olympia

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 […]

30 Jan, 2018 in Timisoara

During my last month in Europe before moving to Asia, I was on a rush to try and taste as much as possible in Europe, and a quick Wizzair flight away from my base in the Netherlands was the Romanian Timisoara. So I spent a weekend there, exploring the streets of “Vienna of the East” […]

27 Jan, 2018 in Vilnius

Those who know me personally probably know these two things about me – (1) I really like funky speciality museums, and I’d choose those over fancy old school museums any day, (2) I take a special interest in the human mind, especially biases and heuristics. Which is why the VILNIL Museum of Illusions in Vilnius was […]

24 Jan, 2018 in Lucerne, Visions

Earlier this year I had a chance to visit Geneva and Lausanne, at the French speaking side of Switzerland, but it was only later that year that I was able to take a trip to see the northern German speaking side, with Zurich being the big city of that area. I did a few gorgeous mountain top […]

21 Jan, 2018 in London

During my last visit to London I stumbled upon a great exhibition at the London Film Museum – Bond in Motion, featuring lots of vehicles from the 007 James Bond movies. Each car had the Bond scene it was from, with an explanation about the car features. Beyond that, an extensive collection of all things […]

14 Jan, 2018 in Granada

This summer I finally had the opportunity to visit Granada in Spain with a conference taking place in the area. I roamed the city in the little time I had before and after the conference, some with conference organized tours (which I rarely do). Granada met and exceeded my expectations, with one of the main highlight being […]

13 Jan, 2018 in Sicily

During our tour of Sicily we did a two nights stop at a lovely homestay Agriturismo Conte Ruggero in what seemed like the middle of nowhere, but a short ride from Mount Etna. We weren’t really expecting much in terms of events that evening, but we ventured into the nearby local town and were surprised […]

2 Jan, 2018 in Visions, Zurich

Engelberg-Titlis is one of the largest ski parks in Switzerland, but during the summer it’s just a gorgeous place to hike, deep in crystal clear freezing water, and enjoy the Swiss breath-taking mountain view from above. Because of the ski resort, you have cable cars and ski lifts taking you almost all the way to […]
