31 Oct, 2017 in Romania, Timisoara

While visiting Timisoara I was looking for something a bit different, and not too far away from my hotel I saw there was a Communist Consumers Museum, which sounded really promising. I expected some kind of a big overpriced museum, like the DDR Museum in Berlin, but to my surprise this museum turned out to be a […]

30 Oct, 2017 in Aachen, Visions

Aachen is a quick getaway trip from my base in Maastricht in the Netherlands, and although it was very near, I never really took the time to explore much and see the town. So before leaving the area, I spent half a day going through the old town and taking the cathedral English tour, and […]

27 Oct, 2017 in Bagan

While touring Burma I made my way to Bagan to do a two-days temple run. The first day I spent walking on foot around the temples in the old Bagan area (see temple run day 1 Part 1 and Part 2), . On the second day I had an electric scooter, so that made life easier, and started […]

19 Oct, 2017 in Koblenz

Did a weekend trip to Koblenz during gorgeous weather and was pleasantly surprised by how nice it was. The highlight, ofcourse, was the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress, reachable by a cable car from across the river in the old town area. On a nice day, with fluffy clouds on a bright sunny day, it’s as good as it gets. […]

17 Oct, 2017 in Eindhoven

One weekend I had family visit, and was looking for something interesting to do, and a quick search revealed that Bryan Adams was in town, with warmups by famous bands I knew from back in high-school but never realized were from the region – like K’s Choice (Dan Owen, and DI-RECT). So, we set off […]

7 Oct, 2017 in Nijmegen

If you live in the Netherlands, then you probably own a bike, or two, and biking is a serious mode of transportation for you, and possibly an important aspect of your life. The very flat Netherlands and the ultra efficient Dutch have managed to make the Netherlands into one of the most bike friendly countries […]

6 Oct, 2017 in Utrecht, Visions

Been in the Netherlands for about two years, passed by Utrecht lots of times from the south going up to Amsterdam, but never really took the time to go around and explore. The closest was during my parents trip, but even then we just did a quick walk and grabbed a bite, and didn’t even […]

3 Oct, 2017 in Cambridge

On my last day in Cambridge, during a gloomy rainy day, I made my last stop at a local ‘attraction’ to visit the Cambridge University Botanical Gardens, which was close to my B&B near the train station. It started out gloomy, but ended up fairly sunny, which somehow got my mobile camera to over-correct and […]

2 Oct, 2017 in Venice

To wrap up my visit to Venice to meet my family for the holidays, I’ll just give you a photowalk around the city on my last day in Venice on my own after my family left. It’s very picturesque so almost every photo you take in whatever direction is likely to look gorgeous. Canals, colors, […]

1 Oct, 2017 in Daytrips from Sapporo

I did lots of daytrips around Hokkaido, and the last one I’ll mention was on the way to Furano, stopping by Asahikawa. Really wasn’t sure what to do in the area, didn’t do my homework, and had very little time, but the person at the hotel suggested taking the shuttle to see the local ice museum. […]
