9 Dec, 2017 in Visions, Zurich

During my last month of two years in Europe I had an opportunity to do some quick getaways that proved quite amazing. One such unexpected treat was Switzerland. I’ve done Geneva and Lausanne before in the French part of Switzerland, but this time made my way up to the German part of the country in […]

7 Dec, 2017 in Havana, Visions

I had a month to go explore Central America moving between jobs, and took the opportunity to visit Cuba for almost two weeks, a destination I’ve been meaning to go visit for a long time. First stop, Havana, the capital, the center and by far the most developed of the cities in the country, for […]

6 Dec, 2017 in Athens, Greece, Visions

Greece has been very high on my travel TODO list for long, but have never found the time to go visit. I’ve recently concluded two years of living in Europe and then had to move back to Asia and realized that I might have spent all that time in Europe but not visit Greece. I […]

1 Nov, 2017 in Liege

Lots of great exhibitions going on in Liege. I previous attended the wonderful “From Salvador to Dali” in 2016, and returned in 2017 to visit the “I will be 20 in 2030”, a funky look at our not so distant future with all that’s happening now with science and technology and the changes happening in […]

31 Oct, 2017 in Breda, Visions

Breda is just a small Dutch town bordering Belgium, but it’s quite delightful and definitely worth a few hours of exploring. Canals, old town, plenty of cafes and restaurants, and some historical buildings and local attractions.   Here’s a brief tour of my few hours walking around small Breda…     Location:  

31 Oct, 2017 in Romania, Timisoara

While visiting Timisoara I was looking for something a bit different, and not too far away from my hotel I saw there was a Communist Consumers Museum, which sounded really promising. I expected some kind of a big overpriced museum, like the DDR Museum in Berlin, but to my surprise this museum turned out to be a […]

30 Oct, 2017 in Aachen, Visions

Aachen is a quick getaway trip from my base in Maastricht in the Netherlands, and although it was very near, I never really took the time to explore much and see the town. So before leaving the area, I spent half a day going through the old town and taking the cathedral English tour, and […]

27 Oct, 2017 in Bagan

While touring Burma I made my way to Bagan to do a two-days temple run. The first day I spent walking on foot around the temples in the old Bagan area (see temple run day 1 Part 1 and Part 2), . On the second day I had an electric scooter, so that made life easier, and started […]

19 Oct, 2017 in Koblenz

Did a weekend trip to Koblenz during gorgeous weather and was pleasantly surprised by how nice it was. The highlight, ofcourse, was the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress, reachable by a cable car from across the river in the old town area. On a nice day, with fluffy clouds on a bright sunny day, it’s as good as it gets. […]

17 Oct, 2017 in Eindhoven

One weekend I had family visit, and was looking for something interesting to do, and a quick search revealed that Bryan Adams was in town, with warmups by famous bands I knew from back in high-school but never realized were from the region – like K’s Choice (Dan Owen, and DI-RECT). So, we set off […]
