28 Jun, 2017 in Malaga

To wrap up the visit to Malaga, no summary is complete without mentioning the old historic center. The apartment I had was very close to the center, and so I had plenty of opportunities, day and night, to walk around and explore. It’s quite lovely, all pedestrian area, lots of cool restaurants and bars, with […]

27 Jun, 2017 in Ghent

Ghent is one of Belgium’s top city attractions, featuring a charming old town center, filled with canals and cathedrals, with a laid back bohemian feel, plus lots of options for drinks and food, with music and culture everywhere. During my very short visit I strolled around a lot, did a boat trip around the main […]

26 Jun, 2017 in Lodz, Visions

Up till a year ago, I have seen very little of Poland aside from a trip at a very young age that I barely remember. In the year since, I’ve seen quite a bit of Poland – Poznan, Warsaw, and Gdansk. My most recent visit was to the Lodz area, to explore a bit of […]

25 Jun, 2017 in Lausanne

I was invited to visit Lausanne University located at the western side of beautiful Lausanne and so took the opportunity to take a long stroll along the Geneva lake all the way back to the old town. What a stunning area, lucky students and faculty, lucky locals. A clear water lake, wonderful beaches, fresh breeze, […]

22 Jun, 2017 in Bonn

Around this time last year I made a quick daytrip during a very hectic month to see the nearby Bonn. During that time there was a hot-air balloon festival taking place at the Rheinaue Park, a large park at the center of Bonn, although there were only setting up when I visited. I took a stroll […]

20 Jun, 2017 in Maastricht

Like caves and tunnels? Then Maastricht is just the place for you. In this very small area of the Limburg province in the southern part of Netherlands are an endless array of tunnels dug deep into the regional hills. You don’t get many hills in the Netherlands, and since they’re made from lime stone they’re […]

16 Jun, 2017 in Daytrips from Sapporo

I spent the last summer in Sapporo in Hokkaido, and was looking for daytrips from Sapporo. Otaru was a daytrip promoted to me as the Japanese Netherlands, in that it featured ‘canals’. Japanese tourists from all over Japan who flew in to cool down in the north would go to Otaru in expectation that it would […]

15 Jun, 2017 in Bagan

Following a morning flight from Yangon to Bagan, I took a taxi to Old Bagan to begin my temple run. There are those who do this with horse carriages, some who do this with electric scooters (which is what I did on day 2), but for the first day, I just did my Bagan temple […]

14 Jun, 2017 in Sicily

Visible from almost every corner or Sicily is the impressive active volcano mountain – Etna. Occasionally it erupts and has a devastating impact on the area, but most time it’s on fair low heat and visitors can hike up all the way to the top and get a glimpse of the volcano. We were less […]

13 Jun, 2017 in Vienna

During the last day following my conference in Vienna I had a bit of time to roam around and explore the old town. I did that the previous days but only night time, and on a clear blue sky day Vienna was absolutely gorgeous. Wonderful architecture, culture and art in every corner, magnificent buildings which […]
