6 Oct, 2017 in Utrecht, Visions

Been in the Netherlands for about two years, passed by Utrecht lots of times from the south going up to Amsterdam, but never really took the time to go around and explore. The closest was during my parents trip, but even then we just did a quick walk and grabbed a bite, and didn’t even […]

26 Sep, 2017 in Cambridge, Visions

Cambridge is one of the top universities in the world, and one of the first, with centuries of top notch academia and some of the world’s greatest minds. It is also a very pretty university/college town with lovely old architecture and pretty canals. I’ve been wanting to visit for a very long time, but only […]

26 Jun, 2017 in Lodz, Visions

Up till a year ago, I have seen very little of Poland aside from a trip at a very young age that I barely remember. In the year since, I’ve seen quite a bit of Poland – Poznan, Warsaw, and Gdansk. My most recent visit was to the Lodz area, to explore a bit of […]

2 Jun, 2017 in Bruges, Visions

Ever since moving to Europe and living next to the Belgium border, I’ve been hearing that I have to go visit Bruges, but it wasn’t until fairly recently that I found the opportunity to go for a short visit before flying out of Brussels. Yep, Bruges is gorgeous, history, gigantic cathedrals, canals, windmills, chocolates, swans, […]

30 Apr, 2017 in Sicily, Visions

I don’t get to see my family very often, so the time we do get to spend together is very precious to me. Thing is, I am so used to traveling on my own, that adjusting to travel with others always comes at some cost. As a traveler, I am used to knowing exactly where […]

18 Apr, 2017 in Switzerland, Visions

Switzerland has been on my TODO list for quite some time, but it was only recently in 2017 that I finally had the chance to go visit, following an invitation to visit Lausanne University. Lausanne is a very charming city, with the large Geneva lake, the tall mountains in the background, the historic old city between […]

16 Apr, 2017 in Geneva, Visions

Switzerland has been on my TODO list for quite some time, but it was only recently in 2017 that I finally had the chance to go visit, following an invitation to visit Lausanne University. I took the flight over to Geneva, and was able to spend some time in Geneva before and after Lausanne.  Geneva is […]

12 Apr, 2017 in Vienna, Visions

Last time I visited Vienna I was an elementary school child. I have what I think are flashbacks of specific moments around Vienna with my Viennese grandma, riding a rocking boat on the Danube river, going up what was at the time seemed to me like a massive ferris wheel, and, oddly enough – checking out […]

16 Mar, 2017 in Daytrips from Sapporo, Visions
otaru-hokkaido-japan-2

While I was spending the summer in Sapporo in Hokkaido, the Otaru daytrip was promoted to me as the Japanese Netherlands, in that it had ‘canals’. Japanese tourists from all over Japan who flew in to cool down in the north would go to Otaru in expectation that it would offer a bit of European […]

9 Mar, 2017 in Visions, Yangon

For years I’ve been wanting to visit Myanmar (Burma) but somehow throughout the long time that I’ve lived in Asia I’ve failed to visit. It was only recently on a business trip to Asia that I was able to take a weekend+ to go see Yangon and Bagan, the obvious highlights, and get a taste […]
