Visions of Valencia Spain (11)

Valencia may have been just another Spanish city with a nice old city center, but just before saying my goodbyes I went to see the new City of Arts and Sciences and was in for a big surprise. I heard they did something special, but this sort of futuristic sci-fi city was not was I […]

6 Jan, 2016 in Southern Spain, Visions
Visions of Alicante Spain (8)

To warm up for Christmas, I decided to head down to southern Europe and see a bit of Spain. Aside from a trip to Barcelona Catalonia over 15 years ago, I have never really had the chance to explore Spain, and so I was thrilled and excited about this visit. Alicante was the last stop before heading back. […]

6 Dec, 2015 in Antwerp, Visions
Visions of Antwerp Belgium (7)

My first visit to Belgium was to the lovely town of Antwerp at the northern side of Belgium, less than an hour by train from Brussels. Although it was a gloomy and cloudy day during turbulent times of a country under the threat of terrorist and a rather short stay, the little I saw of […]

22 Nov, 2015 in Maastricht, Visions
Maastricht Netherlands (15)

Maastricht is a small town in the southern Limburg province of the Netherlands on the border with Belgium and very close to Germany. In my previous visits to the Netherlands it was a bit far off my travel route and I honestly haven’t heard much about it as a travel destination. But, academia led me […]

Visions of Budapest Hungary (9)

On the way to Italy I made a quick stopover in Budapest for a few days. I’ve never been to Hungary, but the local airline Wizzair offers the most extreme budget no-frills flights known to man that make it very affordable to stop over in Budapest on the way from the east to the western […]

Visions of Milan Italy (7)

This year the Expo is hosted in Milan, and since we were in the area and curious about the fashion capital of the world, we decided to stop by for a few days to get a feel of the city and cruise around world cuisine at the Expo 2015. There’s no doubt that Milan is […]

Visions of Florence Italy (5)

The first stop on my recent travels around Italy was to Florence up an hour and a half by the fast train from Rome. A long overdue trip, it was my first time ever visiting Florence, and there’s no doubt that it’s a very beautiful city. We did two days of Florence just walking around […]

14 Oct, 2015 in Rome, Visions
Pacentro Abruzzo Italy (1)

After a week of Northern Italy in the tourist meccas of Florence and Milan, it was time to venture to the less visited parts of Italy. Abruzzo, only a few hours east to Rome, has a few scenic mountain national parks and roads with lots of hotsprings and hidden old towns. We ventured out to […]

Amalfi Italy (3)

In our tour of southern Italy, just before visiting the beautiful Capri Island, we spent a day tripping around the Parco Regionale dei Monti Lattari mountains and the Amalfi area.  We took the SP1 road winding through narrow road and high mountains to Ravello, where we made a short stop to enjoy one of the […]

Visions of Capri Island - Italy (7)

Italy has some breath-taking scenery and in the two weeks I was roaming around the country each day presented me with yet another gorgeous highlight. Capri Island, a ferry ride away from Naples or Sorrento, is a beautiful island offering visitors some spectacular views of the surrounding bay. The cable car leaving from Anacapri, the […]
