14 Apr, 2019 in Malta, Visions

Malta has been on my TODO list for years, especially when I was living in Europe, but I never really got around to it. Until this year. Finally. I had a few days, a weekend plus, to roam around and enjoy this beautiful country. It was everything I was hoping for, and more. Lots of […]

20 Feb, 2019 in Coimbra, Obidos, Visions

On my last trip to Portugal, I did a road trip down from Porto towards Lisbon, going through the mountains and making stops in key cities along the way. There are quite a few remarkable cities to visit on that route, of which I choose two – Obidos and Coimbra. Obidos is a small fortified […]

14 Feb, 2019 in Genoa

Had less than a day to roam around Genoa, so had to prioritize visits to attractions. Of all the museums available in Genoa, I decided on Galata, the maritime and history museum of the city and region with some funky addition of visiting a submarine. The main museum has great exhibitions about sea travel and sea […]

1 Feb, 2019 in Around Paris

In my last visit to Paris I was hoping to see something new in the area I haven’t explored yet. That’s becoming increasingly challenging, as I’ve been to Paris quite a few times already, but the Paris region never fails to introduce me to new attractions within a daytrip. Sometimes I get Château overload, but even […]

31 Jan, 2019 in Porto, Visions

Ever since I first visited Portugal, to Lisbon and Sintra, I’ve been meaning to come back and explore more, and this year managed to make my way back and explore more of the north. First stop, Porto, with a grand river set between two hills, connected by a series of bridges. Walkable old town, lots […]

27 Jan, 2019 in Viseu & mountains, Visions

I recently returned to Portugal to do a roadtrip from Porto up north slowly down towards Lisbon, and on the way managed to see beautiful mountain scenery surrounding the area around Viseu, which served as a base for the night. To give you a taste of Portuguese glory, here are my photo summary visions of the […]

20 Jan, 2019 in Eastern Denmark

To take a trip back in time to experience Denmark in the middle ages go to one of the living history museums around Denmark. I visited the Middelaldercentret Denmark at the south-eastern part in Nykøbing Falster and enjoyed it very much. Lots of actors, old houses, live demonstrations, and thought-provoking life-like exhibits about old ‘technology’ and life back […]

30 Dec, 2018 in Northern Italy

After my visit to Turin northern Italy, I took a short road trip up to the northern mountains, before heading down to Genoa. I have heard it’s a nice ride, but nothing prepared me for the spectacular views of that region.  Sacra di San Michele, up high, is the perfect observation point for the mountains and […]

29 Dec, 2018 in Helsinki

Much to see and do in Helsinki, but one of the nicest things I did was to take a short boat trip to one of the outlaying islands to explore some of the local history with the Suomenlinna fortress, and 18th century defensive island protecting Helsinki from invasions. There are a few stops for the boat […]

21 Dec, 2018 in Paris, Visions

This year I was fortunate to have a couple of weeks to spend in Paris and go and explore beyond what I already saw in my previous visits. I’ve been to Paris quite a few times, but it seems like every visit my understanding of the city becomes more nuanced, I notice different things, my […]
