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 […]

20 Jan, 2016 in Antalya
Yoruk Nomad Theme Park Kemer Antalya-023

Antalya is a gorgeous province, best known for terrific clear water beaches, but Antalya has much more to offer than all-inclusive resorts and sun tanning on the beach. There are beautiful natural parks, breath-taking sky scenic views, remarkable historical sites, and… culture. If you want to learn a bit more about the history of the locals and […]

19 Jan, 2016 in Eindhoven
Philips Museum Eindhoven-015

One of the first things any new resident to southern Netherlands needs to do is to go check in with the Xpat center at Eindhoven to get the resident card. I didn’t know much about the city, or how it came to be, but I did know it’s the largest in the south, and has […]

18 Jan, 2016 in Moscow
Gorky Central Park of Culture and Leisure Moscow Russia (17)

Moscow has some really wonderful parks, and Gorky is one of the highlights. If you’re looking for green space for some gardens, sports, food, arts, and … beaches? then Gorky seems like just the place. It has all of those and much more. It’s a very large park and there are all kinds of things taking […]

18 Jan, 2016 in Illinois
Matthiessen State Park Hiking Trail Illinois-023

Illinois is very flat, and it gets the somewhat deserved reputation of being a bit dull, especially in comparison to other areas in the US with much grander natural scenery. However, this doesn’t mean that there isn’t anything to do, there are some lovely national parks and natural hikes in Illinois, and the Matthiessen State Park Hiking […]

17 Jan, 2016 in Rotterdam, Visions
Visions of Rotterdam Netherlands (12)

Around newyears time I was visiting the Hague area and had a chance to drop in to the nearby Rotterdam for the first time to see the city in the freezing cold following a night of buzzing and partying. The city was pretty much deserted, and in most parts I could see left-overs of the wild […]

16 Jan, 2016 in Bocas del toro
Isla Zapatilla Beaches Bocas del Toro (30)

There are some gorgeous beaches in the Panama Bocas del Toro region, and any island you’ll visit will offer clear blue water and white powdery sand with top-notch snorkeling. I haven’t tried all the beaches and islands in the area, but of all those that I did the Isla Zapatilla beaches with a special tour leaving from Bocas del […]

15 Jan, 2016 in New York City
Staten Island ferry ride New York City (6)

Want grand views of New York City and the statue of liberty? Sure, the tour going to Statue of Liberty National Monument and Ellis Island are great options, but those need to be booked far ahead and usually cost alot of money. If, like me, you’re in for an unscheduled low-budget trip, then the ferry going […]

14 Jan, 2016 in Philadelphia
Eastern State Penitentiary Museum Philadelphia Pennsylvania-001

I love funky museums that show me something different and unexpected and the Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia was just the thing.  A real functioning prison from 1821 to 1971 turned museum this will give you a chance to revisit the history of how prisons evolved over the years. It’s not only about incarceration, and the American […]
