5 Feb, 2018 in Varadero, Visions

The last stop on my trip to Havana, just before wrapping up the two weeks roaming around this fascinating land, was in expat mecca Varadero beach east of Havana on the northern coastline. It’s essentially a very long beach stretch with fluffy white sand and translucent blue waters. I was based a bit outside the tourist […]

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 […]

17 Jan, 2018 in Trinidad, Visions

After starting off my Cuba travels up north in Havana and Vinales, I made it down to explore the center of Cuba, stopping over at Cienfuegos and El Nicho national park, and finally arriving at the very lovely Trinidad. It’s a very nice colonial town, with lots of arts, restaurants, cafes, live music, and magical […]

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 […]

1 Jan, 2018 in Cienfuegos, Visions

Coming down from Havana and Vinales to explore a bit of central Cuba, I only had a day to spend in Cienfuegos, but even during that day I was able to see and explore quite a lot, much in thanks to my very friendly and efficient Airbnb host. Once I arrived, a taxi driver took […]

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 […]

25 Dec, 2017 in Lithuania, Visions

After realizing I have not visited much of north-eastern Europe I took a quick look on a weekend getaway to Lithuania. First stop was Vilnius which left a very positive impression on me. With the little time I had, I also had the chance to venture out of Vilnius towards the west and visit Trakai, […]

24 Dec, 2017 in Alajuela, Visions

I began my Costa Rican adventures renting a car at San Jose and heading off to the north towards La Fortuna. First stop the La Paz Waterfall, a waterfall areas turned eco-Disney land that made me realize just how touristic and commercial Costa Rican “eco-travel” is. Still, can’t beat paved hikes to some gorgeous nature, […]
