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 […]

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 to the north-west towards Seville to visit some of the white villages and cliff-hanging towns – Ronda and Zahara. The road up is long and winding through some beautiful mountainous coastal […]

29 Dec, 2016 in Malaga, 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, […]

In 2001, I had a plan of visiting a friend in New York, with a British Airways flight stopping over in London. Then, 9/11 happened, and all flights to New York were cancelled for almost three weeks, leading to my first ever out of the blue backpack trip through England. I had visited the UK […]

Berlin has been on my GOTO list for a long time. Many of the people I meet who have heard a bit about my travels kept asking whether I’ve been to Berlin yet. Having moved to the Netherlands, and having visited quite a few German cities, it was only a matter of time before I would make […]

I’ve used the Dusseldorf airport quite a number of times, but have never really taken the time to go see the city itself. One lovely Sunday, I decided to take the quick 1.5 hours bus from Maastricht to go explore Dusseldorf. I spent a day walking around the old town and the Rhine river and […]

2 Nov, 2016 in Luxembourg, Visions

The wonderful about living in Maastricht at pretty much the center of western Europe is that many countries are within easy reach for a weekend getaway. One gloomy weekend I decided I should head out and see more of the area before it becomes too cold and rainy. So, two hours south through clear roads […]

Just before heading out to spend the summer in Asia, I had a chance to visit the nearby Bonn in Germany. It was only a weekend daytrip, so i didn’t get to see all that Bonn has to offer, but still, there were some nice things to share. I started with the old town and […]

visions-of-hong-kong-hk-2

On and off I spent over 5 years living in Hong Kong. It’s where I lived the longest out of my home country, and it therefore has a special place in my heart. This summer was the first time I went back to visit since I left in 2014, and – as expected – it […]
