3 Sep, 2018 in Tampere, Turku, Visions

With a few days to see Finland, we decide to do the classic triangle road trip, heading north from Helsinki towards Tampere, then heading south west to Turku, and then heading back east to Helsinki. We had great adventures in both. Tampere offered a variety of funky museums, a great observation deck overlooking the gorgeous […]

28 Aug, 2018 in Cienfuegos

Coming down south from Havana Cuba to explore the southern coastline, I had very limited time to visit Cienfuegos and see the area. I arrived at my airbnb with a lovely local host, and asked for help in trying to make the most. With his help, I was able to really see a lot of the […]

26 Aug, 2018 in Genoa, Visions

This summer I spent some time in Europe, and after a visit to France and Denmark and before a visit to Finland, I had a few days to explore new regions of Italy I haven’t explored before. I first did Turin and the nearby mountains, and then made it down to the coastline for a […]

23 Aug, 2018 in Normandy

In my recent visit to France I had a chance to visit some of the local universities. I spent some time in Paris Nanterre University and roamed around Paris, but also had a chance to go visit Normandy and visit a former classmate now faculty in NOEMA, one of the French international business schools. It’s a nice […]

22 Aug, 2018 in Gyeongju, Visions

On my recent visit to Busan in southern South Korea I wasn’t expecting to go far from the city, but somehow made it all the way up to Gyeongju, a small town with great historical attractions and some wonderful scenic views. I started off with the royal tombs – Daereungwon, Cheonmachong, and Gyelim – with a very […]

20 Aug, 2018 in Paris

During the summer of 2018 I was invited to visit Paris Nanterre University and was hosted by some of the local professors. I arrived after several hectic weeks of student demonstration, so the campus was severely damaged, and filled with graffiti, all quite shocking. That tragedy aside, the old campus is quite compact and easily walkable, […]

13 Aug, 2018 in HK Hikes

Just when I think I’ve visited everything that there is to visit in Hong Kong I accidentally come across a new spot that reminds me how wonderful Hong Kong is. From an unexplored nearly deserte ferry pier next the Chinese University of Hong Kong departs a one hour ferry take goes through beautiful Plover Cove area, […]

11 Aug, 2018 in Shanghai

On a recent visit to Shanghai in China I took the opportunity to visit an area I had not yet had the chance to explore well at the center of old colonial Shanghai near the Fuxing park. I started off with the park, with some great people watching, continued to the nearby commercial area and […]

8 Aug, 2018 in Denmark

I had the most wonderful time roaming around Denmark for a few days and experience Danish culture. Starting off in Copenhagen, I did a circle towards the south, heading north-west, and finally completing the circle heading back east to Copenhagen. On that route, I visited Viking culture in Roskilde, the cliffs of Møns Klint in the island of […]

6 Aug, 2018 in Around Paris, Visions

This summer I was invited for a few weeks to Paris, and was looking for new things to explore in the area. A local I met who grow up in Chantilly strongly recommended I check it out, a quick daytrip from Paris, so I decided to rent a car and combine Chantilly with exploring the […]
