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 […]

While spending the summer in Sapporo in Hokkadio, at the northern region of Japan, I made a number of daytrips to explore a bit of the mountainous region of Furano. I started off with the blue pond and Biei and then made my way to the hotsprings and cable car area in the city of Furano, […]

Being based in Maastricht Netherlands has its perks. One of those, is that it’s basically at the heart of Europe, with the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, France, Switzerland, and… Luxembourg all within easy reach a few hours drive or train ride. On one gloomy weekend I took a car drive down south to explore a bit of […]

31 Dec, 2016 in Madrid, Visions

Been meaning to visit Madrid for quite some time, but it wasn’t until the holidays this year that I finally had a chance to make it. On the first night of my arrival I was pretty overwhelmed, the whole city was overrun by tourists, with the big squares featuring holiday markets and huge Christmas trees, […]

30 Dec, 2016 in Southern Spain, Visions

Visited Spain during holiday time to warm up a bit. After starting my adventures at Malaga, I rented a car and headed up the mountains north-west through the white villages and cliff-hanging towns – Ronda and Zahara – to finally arrive at Seville. Although I was unprepared about Seville and had very limited time, some of my […]

29 Dec, 2016 in Southern Spain, Visions

Visited Spain during holiday time to warm up a bit, starting my adventures in the southern city of Malaga. It’s a charming coastal town, with an imposing fortress on a hilltop overlooking the entire region, with some picturesque mountains in the background. The entire center has been cleared for pedestrians and is filled with bars, […]

28 Dec, 2016 in Madrid, Visions

Visited Spain during holiday time to warm up a bit, venturing into a new area of central Spain that I haven’t been to yet. While visiting Madrid, I took a quick daytrip to Toledo without doing any prior homework, and had the most wonderful surprise. Although the day started out foggy, with almost zero visibility, […]
