Visions of Poznan Poland (6)

It’s been 20 years since I last visited Poland under very different circumstances in a time following the Soviet collapse, so I’ve been wanting to go back and visit for quite some time. Looking for a quick weekend getaway, it turned out that my little town of Maastricht has an airport that holds very cheap […]

Visions of Girona Spain (3)

Girona is a charming often overlooked town. I wasn’t planning to do anything much there myself, but my cheap RyanAir landed in that airport, and I heard it has a charming old quarter and great views from the university and so decided to stay the overnight and have a look, and I’m very glad that […]

9 Apr, 2016 in Serbia, Visions
Visions of Novi Sad Serbia (5)

My visit to Serbia was short, so centered mainly around Belgrade with a quick getaway trip to Novi Sad. In Novi Sad I had exactly enough time to visit the hill-top fortress and see a bit of the old town center. Although Novi Sad suffered some of the heaviest NATO bombing during the war, there’s […]

Visions of Belgrade Serbia (8)

I did a crazy 10 days tour of the Balkans a few years back, but have not made it to Serbia, and so decided to take a weekend to go and visit. Since it was very short, I could only do Belgrade and the nearby Novi Sad, and get a feel for it all. I’m not […]

7 Apr, 2016 in Limburg, Visions
Visions of Valdenburg Netherlands (12)

Netherlands is filled with surprises. Just 20mins by train or bus from Maastricht to the east in the Limburg province in southern Netherlands, is the lovely town of Valkenburg. It has, TA-DA, hills! hills so high (compared to the rest of the Netherlands) that someone thought it was worth setting up a gondola cable chair […]

29 Feb, 2016 in Lisbon, Visions
Visions of Lisbon Portugal (18)

During the one week off for carnival in the Netherlands, I took off for a first visit to Portugal. I knew very little about Portugal, and had absolutely zero expectations. Despite rainy gloomy weather most days I visited, I can summarize my visit to Lisbon and Sintra as a huge success. Once again, I found […]

28 Jan, 2016 in Rotterdam, Visions
Visions of Delft Netherlands (6)

Last newyears I stayed in the Hague-Rotterdam area and was looking for something to explore in the area. Although I haven’t heard anything about Delft from anyone, it showed up on the map between the two main cities so I decided to look it up and see what it might have to offer and was surprised […]

17 Jan, 2016 in Rotterdam, Visions
Visions of Rotterdam Netherlands (12)

Around newyears time I was visiting the Hague area and had a chance to drop in to the nearby Rotterdam for the first time to see the city in the freezing cold following a night of buzzing and partying. The city was pretty much deserted, and in most parts I could see left-overs of the wild […]

9 Jan, 2016 in Eastern Spain, Visions
Visions of Figueres Spain (9)

Cheap Ryanair flights to Barcelona arrive at the Girona airport, one hour north from Barcelona. From what I’ve heard, more people just hop on the bus to Barcelona upon arrival, without taking the time to see if there’s anything worthwhile in the area. There are a few things to do in the area, the most […]

8 Jan, 2016 in London, Visions

The nice thing about living in the center of Western Europe is that all the big cities are within reach. A 3 hour train will get me to Paris, Amsterdam, or Frankfurt, and in 4 hour I can be in London. A few weeks after moving here I decided to test it out and give it […]
