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 […]

30 Dec, 2017 in Sicily, Visions

Earlier this year I had the chance to join my family to a holiday trip around the gorgeous Italian island of Sicily. From Taormina, with the beaches of Cefalu and Mondello, to the gorgeous Etna active volcano mountain. Along the way, we also made several stops in interesting towns, Catania, Enna, and Monreale, with historical […]

29 Dec, 2017 in The Hague, Visions

My first visit to the Hague was back in 2014, as I was transitioning from Asia to the US and was just blown away by how nice the Netherlands. It took me over a year, to somehow make it back to live in the Netherlands, but further down south in the Limburg province. I thought […]

27 Dec, 2017 in Greece, Visions

Greece has been very high on my travel TODO list for long, but have never found the time to go visit. I’ve recently concluded two years of living in Europe and then had to move back to Asia and realized that I might have spent all that time in Europe but not visit Greece. I […]

26 Dec, 2017 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, especially with the gorgeous Muslim […]

23 Dec, 2017 in Visions, Zurich

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 was expecting much larger […]

20 Dec, 2017 in London

I have a thing for gondolas and ferries wheels, even the most unnecessary ones. So, when there’s an actually exceptionally good one, I must try it. London Eye, one of the world’s largest ferris wheels definitely qualifies, but thing is – it costs a fortune, and so in my backpacking years I just couldn’t bring […]

10 Dec, 2017 in Koblenz, Visions

One of the last getaways I did before leaving Europe and relocating to Europe was a daytrip to Koblenz in western Germany, on the intersection of the Rhine river with the Moselle river. The point where the rivers meet is spectacular, if you take the cable car nearby to the mountain top Ehrenbreitstein Fortress on the other […]
