25 Dec, 2018 in Visions, Zhuhai

In late 2018 China opened the Hong Kong-Macau-Zhuahi bridge, the longest bridge in the world and an archaeological wonder. I’ve been to Macau many times, but I’ve never visited Zhuhai, so opening of the bridge gave me the opportunity to experience the bridge and see a new place. Zhuhai exceeded my very low expectations. Sure, […]

25 Dec, 2018 in Quang Nam Province, Visions

I recently made a nostalgia visit to Hoi An Vietnam after 13 years of being away. Although I stayed in Hoi An for 2 months, I did very little to explore Danang, which back then seemed to me like a big boring and “expensive” city, compared to the Hoi An little town charm. During this […]

25 Dec, 2018 in Quang Nam Province, Visions

I recently made a nostalgia trip to Vietnam, after 13 years of being away. Long ago, in 2005, I was backpacking through south-east Asia, and somehow got stuck for 2 months in the little town of Hoi An. The only reason I left was that my visa ran out. There was a special charm to […]

22 Dec, 2018 in Kumamoto, Visions

Japan is one of my favorite travel destinations. I’ve been to Japan many times, and it has always proved a unique cultural and aesthetically beautiful experience challenging much of how I previously experienced Asia, or travel anywhere else in the world. In my most recent visit I set out to start from Kagoshima in the […]

21 Dec, 2018 in Paris, Visions

This year I was fortunate to have a couple of weeks to spend in Paris and go and explore beyond what I already saw in my previous visits. I’ve been to Paris quite a few times, but it seems like every visit my understanding of the city becomes more nuanced, I notice different things, my […]

21 Dec, 2018 in Lijiang, Visions

Lijiang in Yunnan province was one of the nicest visits I’ve had so far to China, and I’ve been around – to many parts of China. A beautiful well kept old town, little streams and canals, with some world class attractions.   This is a photo walk summary of my visit to Lijiang, in Yunnan […]

14 Dec, 2018 in Lijiang

On the northern side of Lijiang, starting from Wufeng Pavilion, is a large area that extends the old town of Lijiang, with a beautiful lake park, with grand views of the snowy mountains in the back (like Jade Dragon Snow Mountain). At the center of the lake are pagodas, and a few attractions (like the Lijiang […]

13 Dec, 2018 in Gyeongju

My last stop in the trip of southern South Korea was Gyeongju, the city of strange old tombs. I started my walk on the northern side, and soon came across large green unnatural looking hills, that marked the beginning of a large park of gardens and tombs with various old archaeological sites, like an old observatory, […]

7 Dec, 2018 in Lijiang

Yunnan province and Lijiang were some of the nicest visits I’ve had to China so far, and I’ve been around – to many parts of China. Lijiang has a very well kept old town, and some world class attractions. At the center of the old town is Lion Rock Mountain with its Wangu Tower overlooking […]

1 Dec, 2018 in HK Places

After so long of living in Hong Kong there are very few places I have not yet visited. Strangely enough, western HK island, between Kennedy Town and Pok Fu Lam, was one of them, so I never got to see the new large business area with the big complex of residential buildings and shopping malls […]
