10 Feb, 2016 in Moscow
Kremlin Moscow (11)

A symbol of the former USSR, the Kremlin in Moscow brings up all sorts of associations, but there’s so much more to the Kremlin than history of cold war politics. For the tourist, the Kremlin offers grand Russian architecture with palaces, churches, cathedrals, and museums. I skipped the museums, and headed to the Kremlin complex […]

7 Feb, 2016 in Amalfi and Capri
Monte Solaro Cable Car Anacapri Island Italy-017

Capri Island is absolutely gorgeous. Capri and Anacapri, the two sides of the island, offer slightly different types of views and attractions. On the Capri side there are the lovely Gardens of Augustus, but Anacapri has something better – a cable car taking you up to the highest point on the mountain – Monte Solaro. The panoramic […]

4 Feb, 2016 in Antalya
Olympos Teleferik Antalya Turkey-039

Antalya in Turkey is known for all-inclusive resorts and terrific beaches, but the area offers so much more to see and do. Within a short driving distance from the Antalya old town are spectacular scenic views, ancient cities, folk villages, and much more. Of all that’s available, I decided to go see the Olympos Teleferik, and […]

3 Feb, 2016 in San Diego
Old town - San Diego-007

My short trip to San Diego was very memorable, with lots of cool sites and fun things to do. I thought I covered it all, when I realized I neglected to tell you about the historic part of San Diego, the old town. One of the oldest areas in California, the earliest settlement in the west […]

2 Feb, 2016 in Cologne
Old Town of Cologne Germany (38)

To continue the grand tour of Cologne, following up on the the grand Cologne Cathedral, with some churches and monasteries, Cologne is simply a very nice city for strolling around, especially in the history center of the city. There’s a large Rhein river crossing the town, with a large bridge offering the love locks experience, that offers […]

29 Jan, 2016 in Amalfi and Capri
Gardens of Augustus Capri Italy (24)

Capri Island on the coast of Amalfi not too far from Naples and Pompeii in Italy offers some of the best views I saw in the last year. Sure, it’s touristic, but once you’re up on the hills overlooking the gorgeous bay with the far away islands, you hardly notice the other tourists, and it […]

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 […]

27 Jan, 2016 in Mexico City
Historical center Mexico City (55)

My visit to Mexico City was based at the wonderful historic center. I arrived late the first night and headed out to explore, surprised to find live music playing in street corners accompanied by locals causally dancing in the streets, street performers, lots of local cantinas serving cheap drinks, and a bunch of Mariachis roaming around between […]

24 Jan, 2016 in Rome
Ancient Palatine Palatino Hill Rome (8)

Rome offers many remarkable and relatively well-preserved historical sites, but modern times and the development of Rome throughout the centuries has made it rather difficult to really get a feel of ancient times without any modern buildings around. But Palatine Hill and the nearby Roman Forum areas will take you back in time to show you a bit of […]

21 Jan, 2016 in Cancun
Mayan Ruins at Tulum Archeological Site Mexico-044

Mexico is a great place to visit. Happy friendly local, delicious food, vibrant culture, funky music, world-class beaches, it’s just full of magical surprises. But one of the great highlights of Mexico is about the trip back in time to visit lost civilizations and explore ancient cultures that are long gone and no one really knows […]
