visions-of-dusseldorf-germany-2

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
visions-of-luxembourg-city-1

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
