Mark Twain Cave  Hannibal Missouri (29)

The Mark Twain Cave is the oldest cave in Missouri, featured in Mark Twain’s stories about Tom Sawyer and Injun Joe with tales of romantic adventures and fatal hideouts from the law. I ran into this cave completely by accident while roaming the highway linking Illinois and Kansas. I was a bit tired and just […]

UNAM National Autonomous University of Mexico campus Mexico City (12)

I’ve heard quite a lot about UNAM (National Autonomous University of Mexico), one of Latin America’s best universities situated at the southern part of Mexico City. If you don’t have a reason to visit for the local academics, then atleast consider visiting for the interesting campus they have. On one of my visits to Mexico […]

Isla Carenero  Bocas Del Toro Province - Panama (18)

When visiting the lovely Bocas Del Toro islands in Panama I spent my first night at the Bocas Del Toro Town. Of all the places you can stay on those islands, Bocas Del Toro is probably the worst option, unless you want some variant of nightlife or care about convenient shopping. So, one of the […]

Central Park autumn - New York City (8)

Last spring I had the opportunity to revisit New York City and its gorgeous Central Park. The last time I’ve been to NYC before that was in December for Christmas during freezing cold winter and Central Park was covered with snow. Springtime Central Park felt different, blue skies with fluffy clouds, and the trees just […]

21 Oct, 2015 in Rome
Colosseum Rome Italy (4)

The Colosseum, one of the world’s most recognizable relics of the ancient world, representing a long gone era of a great empire. With all that’s Italy been through since it’s a miracle it stands as it does. The problem with universality recognized symbols is that they are considered a must-do attractions for all visitors and […]

20 Oct, 2015 in Munich
Nymphenburg Palace Park Munich Germany (34)

My visit to Munich was filled with little surprises. Upon my arrival to Munich I was asked whether I wanted to go take a walk at a nearby park, and looking at the gloomy skies outside I was contemplating whether a simple stroll in a park was a good enough excuse to venture out. Little […]

18 Oct, 2015 in Philadelphia
University of Pennsylvania  Philadelphia (2)

After a visit to New York City for an academic conference, I took a couple of days to venture down south and visit two universities I’ve wanted to see for long – Princeton University in New Jersey, and University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. Both are Ivy league, and how some of the best scholars in […]

Visions of Budapest Hungary (9)

On the way to Italy I made a quick stopover in Budapest for a few days. I’ve never been to Hungary, but the local airline Wizzair offers the most extreme budget no-frills flights known to man that make it very affordable to stop over in Budapest on the way from the east to the western […]

Visions of Milan Italy (7)

This year the Expo is hosted in Milan, and since we were in the area and curious about the fashion capital of the world, we decided to stop by for a few days to get a feel of the city and cruise around world cuisine at the Expo 2015. There’s no doubt that Milan is […]

Visions of Florence Italy (5)

The first stop on my recent travels around Italy was to Florence up an hour and a half by the fast train from Rome. A long overdue trip, it was my first time ever visiting Florence, and there’s no doubt that it’s a very beautiful city. We did two days of Florence just walking around […]
