30 Apr, 2017 in Sicily, Visions

I don’t get to see my family very often, so the time we do get to spend together is very precious to me. Thing is, I am so used to traveling on my own, that adjusting to travel with others always comes at some cost. As a traveler, I am used to knowing exactly where […]

29 Apr, 2017 in Sapporo

My trip last summer to Sapporo was completely unplanned. I was originally planning to tour the Nagoya area following a conference, but the scorching heat of 35-38c had me looking for cooler alternatives, and Hokkaido seemed like a good alternative. And so, when I arrived in Sapporo, I had absolutely no idea what to expect. […]

28 Apr, 2017 in Lisbon

Lisbon is gorgeous. I last visited around February, and although it was mostly cloudy it was for the most part pleasant and without rain. And so every time that I would head up the hills to see the city from above the city would emerge in full glory with heavy clouds in the background with just […]

26 Apr, 2017 in Yangon

During my first night in Burma, I landed in Yangon and made my way to the hotel in China Town, put down my stuff and went out for a first walk in the way. The first ‘attraction’ I visited in Yangon a few minutes walk away from my hotel was the night lit Sule Pagoda, a […]

To wrap up my visit to Alicante on the eastern coastline of Spain during Christmas time, join me for a tour of the beaches, the marina, and the funky Volvo race museum nearby.   Beaches Alicante     Volvo Ocean Race Alicante     Marina Alicante     Other posts on Alicante: Santa Barbara Castle : […]

23 Apr, 2017 in Limburg

Lots of funky underground tunnels all over the Limburg area around Maastricht. I previously wrote about the remarkable Roman Catacombs in Valkenburg and the Fort Sint Pieter and underground tunnels Maastricht, and today I’ll mention two more, and there’s another that I’ll write about later on, which is a bit more unique. If you’re visiting Valkenburg and the Valkenburg […]

Didn’t have long to go around and explore Serbia but I did get to do a daytrip from Belgrade to see Novi Sad. The major highlight in Novi Sad is the Petrovaradin Fortress. The fort dates back to the 17th century although they have found remains of a settlement up there going as far back as […]

21 Apr, 2017 in Brussels

In my last visit to Brussels for the 2017 museum night I took the next morning to do the Brussels comic route and explore around the city looking for comics murals. What a neat project. It started in the early 1990s and by now the city collection offers no less than 50 murals on various […]

21 Apr, 2017 in Southern Spain

One of the nicest surprises for me in Seville was a Flamenco show I caught with the Museo del Baile Flamenco. Although it is meant for tourists, and you might expect cliche, as far as I can tell this was a very well done show, with some very impressive local artists. It gave a very good intro […]

20 Apr, 2017 in Warsaw

The historic old town in Warsaw is in the image of what the old town used to look like, to give visitors the feel of former glory, but because of the mass destruction during world war II, much of of the area is a reconstruction. It is a remarkably well done reconstruction, it looks authentic, […]
