20 Oct, 2016 in Hong Kong, Visions
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 […]

Oh, Venice. How long I’ve waited to see you. For years I’ve been meaning to go, and came close many times, but never quite got around to it. Something always came up. But this time, a family gathering to celebrate a significant holiday finally gave me the opportunity to catch this beautiful city in almost […]

12 Oct, 2016 in Ghent, Visions

Over the weekend I had the pleasure of visiting a nearby city I’ve been meaning to go see for a long time – Ghent. It’s a charming old town, filled with canals and cathedrals, with a laid back bohemian feel to it, lots of options for drinks and food, music and culture everywhere. It was […]

My recent summer was mostly spent in Asia, with the longest time spent in Japan. Since it was boiling hot down in central Japan, I made an unexpected change in my plans and went up to Hokkaido, to see a bit of the wonderful scenic north and cool down a bit on the mountains. I […]

It’s been a few years since I last visited Taiwan, and it’s been even longer since I last visited the area around Keelung. My former visits were very memorable and arriving in Taiwan I was filled with nostalgia about almost everything I saw. On my last days before heading out not knowing when I’ll be […]

13 Sep, 2016 in Hokkaido, Sapporo, Visions
visions-of-sapporo-hokkaido-japan-8

I spent most of the summer in the city of Sapporo in the northern Hokkaido province of Japan. I did not expect to, but the hot and humid ~35c weather down in central Japan left me no choice. I knew absolutely nothing about Hokkaido before booking my flight and heading out, and only after I […]

11 Sep, 2016 in Nagoya, Visions
Visions of Nagoya Japan (11)

While living in Asia Japan was one of my favorite travel destinations. My few visits to Tokyo and Kyoto and the surrounding areas were very memorable and so after living Asia I wondered whether I’ll ever be able to make it back and perhaps even linger for a bit. Luckily, the last summer had a […]

9 Sep, 2016 in Penghu islands, Visions
penghu-islands-taiwan-31

After two years living in Taiwan, on and off, I have come to know Taiwan very well. It’s safe to say that I’ve covered most of the major tourist spots, even making it all the way to the off-the-beaten-track places like Jinmen islands close to the mainland China coast. So, when I made it back […]

7 Sep, 2016 in Gdansk, Visions
Visions of Gdansk Poland (1)

A lovely old town with many atmospheric restaurants and cafes, maritime history and port area, nice beaches not too far away, Gdansk has charm and lots to offer. I only had a couple of days to explore the area, but managed to see quite a bit and enjoy the beauty and elegance of the old […]
