6 Aug, 2018 in Around Paris, Visions

This summer I was invited for a few weeks to Paris, and was looking for new things to explore in the area. A local I met who grow up in Chantilly strongly recommended I check it out, a quick daytrip from Paris, so I decided to rent a car and combine Chantilly with exploring the […]

3 Aug, 2018 in Turin, Visions

This summer I got to spend some time in Europe, and after a visit to France and Denmark and before a visit to Finland, I had a few days to explore new regions of Italy I haven’t explored before. The chosen base was Turin, up on the north west near the mountains, and so I […]

2 Aug, 2018 in Helsinki, Visions

Was hoping to take my sister to cool down a bit from the hot summer down in southern Europe and when I mentioned Finland she was immediately into it. We’ve both been wanting to visit, and this seemed like a good opportunity. Helsinki was our first stop, a pretty laid back capital city with a […]

5 Jul, 2018 in Copenhagen, Visions

Made it to Denmark, finally, after so many years of making plans for it. I guess it took getting away from the Netherlands and moving to Asia to be able to make a plan to make that happen. So, when visiting back in Europe, decided to make a short detour from a visit to France […]

5 Jul, 2018 in Nanjing, Visions

It’s been 6 years since I last visited Nanjing with my father, and I recently had a chance to go back and visit for a work-related trip. I had a day or so to also wonder around the university area and explore Nanjing on foot, which led me to see Nanjing in a new light […]

4 Jul, 2018 in Ulsan, Visions

Following my quick getaway from Hong Kong to Busan, I headed up north for a quick visit to Ulsan. It’s a rather industrial town without too many well-known tourist attractions, but I made the most of it, by going to the beach side and hiking one of the small islands overlooking the coast line. I […]

18 Jun, 2018 in Kunming, Visions

Kunming was my starting point for the Yunnan adventures. Kunming is a big Chinese city, and lacks the charm of the other places I visited in Yunnan, but in the day I arrive and the day I had before flying back I did manage to see a few charming places like green park and Longmen […]

12 Jun, 2018 in Peloponnese, Visions

One of the oldest ruin sites that we visited in Greece was Mycenae to the east of the Peloponnese. Dating back as far as the 18th century BC the Mycenae served as a regional stronghold overlooking the region from a mountain top. There are ruins, and not much is left standing, still there is enough that with a […]

9 Jun, 2018 in Busan, Visions

To escape my destiny (aging and birthdays, you know…), I made a quick getaway from Hong Kong to try and find a place in the region I’ve never been to before, Busan in the southern part of South Korea. As usual with me recently, I did absolutely no homework, and so arrived blank slate with […]

6 Jun, 2018 in Suzhou, Visions

It’s been almost 6 years since I last visited Suzhou and the city of Suzhou has changed dramatically. Sure, you have the old areas with the canals (unjustifiably promoted as “Venice of the east”) which we all know of, but then you have the amazing new area surrounding the lake. That area, to me, signifies […]
