18 Nov, 2016 in Macau

While I was visiting Hong Kong I ran into an old schoolmate who invited me to come visit her department at the University of Macau, and so I had a chance to see Macau again. Macau is a really small place, and I’ve visited a few times, and so I was wondering if there was […]

17 Nov, 2016 in Taipei

On my last day before leaving Taiwan on my recent summer visit I was looking for something I haven’t done yet, possibly with a fresh view of Taipei. The Miramar Park ferris wheel has been there fore a long time, but I never got around to trying it out, and so to say my farewells […]

15 Nov, 2016 in Berlin, Visions

Berlin has been on my GOTO list for a long time. Many of the people I meet who have heard a bit about my travels kept asking whether I’ve been to Berlin yet. Having moved to the Netherlands, and having visited quite a few German cities, it was only a matter of time before I would make […]

14 Nov, 2016 in Maastricht

The small town of Maastricht has quite a few great tourist attractions, but perhaps the biggest highlight has to do with the Maastricht Saint Peter hill which features the Saint Pete Fortress and a large array of underground tunnels. A combined tour can last about 2 hours and give you an introduction to the long […]

9 Nov, 2016 in Warsaw

When I looked up things to do in Warsaw and saw “a library”, I didn’t think much of it. I know academia, seen my fair share of libraries, so what could be so different about this library? But on a gloomy rainy day that forced me to visiting a museum, I took a couple of […]

5 Nov, 2016 in Sapporo

Large Japanese cities tend to have atleast one shopping mall with a ferris wheel on top. It’s a trend, and I’ve seen this spreading to Taipei and other Asian cities. On a clear day, it’s a great way to see the city from above. So, on my last day in Sapporo on a day with […]

4 Nov, 2016 in Sapporo

I spent a few weeks in Sapporo this summer and my accommodation was mostly based in the very lively Susukino area. Lots of funky bars and pubs and strange night life with many different adventures, but one unique somewhat touristic hangout that’s actually worth visiting is the bartending show at Flair Bar es overlooking the intersection at the […]

3 Nov, 2016 in Dusseldorf, Visions

I’ve used the Dusseldorf airport quite a number of times, but have never really taken the time to go see the city itself. One lovely Sunday, I decided to take the quick 1.5 hours bus from Maastricht to go explore Dusseldorf. I spent a day walking around the old town and the Rhine river and […]

2 Nov, 2016 in Luxembourg, Visions

The wonderful about living in Maastricht at pretty much the center of western Europe is that many countries are within easy reach for a weekend getaway. One gloomy weekend I decided I should head out and see more of the area before it becomes too cold and rainy. So, two hours south through clear roads […]

25 Oct, 2016 in Bonn, Visions

Just before heading out to spend the summer in Asia, I had a chance to visit the nearby Bonn in Germany. It was only a weekend daytrip, so i didn’t get to see all that Bonn has to offer, but still, there were some nice things to share. I started with the old town and […]
