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 […]

30 Nov, 2018 in HK Hikes

I’ve visited Hong Kong’s Lamma Island several times in the years I’ve lived in Hong Kong (example1, example2), but the last time was over 7 years ago, and it was mainly on the same path crossing the island from north to south-east (Yung Shue Wan Ferry Pier). This year, I went back to revisit, and […]

29 Nov, 2018 in Normandy, Visions

In my recent visit to France, I rented a car and did a drive towards the northwest to see Rouen and the French northwest coastline, to see Fécamp & Étretat. This is a photo summary of my trip, starting from Roeun, my visit to the NEOMA business school campus, and then the breathtaking coastline.     […]
