27 Dec, 2017 in Greece, Visions

Greece has been very high on my travel TODO list for long, but have never found the time to go visit. I’ve recently concluded two years of living in Europe and then had to move back to Asia and realized that I might have spent all that time in Europe but not visit Greece. I […]

26 Dec, 2017 in Granada

This summer I finally had the opportunity to visit Granada in Spain with a conference taking place in the area. I roamed the city in the little time I had before and after the conference, some with conference organized tours (which I rarely do). Granada met and exceeded my expectations, especially with the gorgeous Muslim […]

25 Dec, 2017 in Lithuania, Visions

After realizing I have not visited much of north-eastern Europe I took a quick look on a weekend getaway to Lithuania. First stop was Vilnius which left a very positive impression on me. With the little time I had, I also had the chance to venture out of Vilnius towards the west and visit Trakai, […]

24 Dec, 2017 in Alajuela, Visions

I began my Costa Rican adventures renting a car at San Jose and heading off to the north towards La Fortuna. First stop the La Paz Waterfall, a waterfall areas turned eco-Disney land that made me realize just how touristic and commercial Costa Rican “eco-travel” is. Still, can’t beat paved hikes to some gorgeous nature, […]

23 Dec, 2017 in Visions, Zurich

Earlier this year I had a chance to visit Geneva and Lausanne, at the French speaking side of Switzerland, but it was only later that year that I was able to take a trip to see the northern German speaking side, with Zurich being the big city of that area. I was expecting much larger […]

22 Dec, 2017 in Visions

I had a month to explore Central America, and took the opportunity to visit Cuba for almost two weeks, a destination I’ve been meaning to go visit for a long time. First stop was Havana, the capital, the center and by far the most developed of the cities in the country, for better or worse. […]

20 Dec, 2017 in London

I have a thing for gondolas and ferries wheels, even the most unnecessary ones. So, when there’s an actually exceptionally good one, I must try it. London Eye, one of the world’s largest ferris wheels definitely qualifies, but thing is – it costs a fortune, and so in my backpacking years I just couldn’t bring […]

19 Dec, 2017 in Nicaragua, Visions

The last stop on my trip around Central America after Cuba and Costa Rica was Nicaragua. Compared to the ease of travel in Costa Rica, Nicaragua was rough and far less developed for the midrange to upscale tourist. I rented a car at San Jose in Costa Rica and returned the car at the Costa […]

17 Dec, 2017 in Sapporo

Wrapping up my long stay at Sapporo in Hokkaido last summer, there are two places I left unmentioned in Sapporo the Former Hokkaido Government Office near the train station and the Maruyama Park and Hokkaido Shrine I visited on the way to the cable cars. The government office you’ll probably stumble upon a few times when roaming […]

16 Dec, 2017 in Timisoara, Visions

During my last month in Europe before moving to Asia, I tried to see as much as possible from Europe in parts I have not visited before. Examining the Europe map I realized I have not visited any of the former Soviet north-east, aside from Russia, which was said to be very different, and so […]
