25 Mar, 2019 in Chang Mai, Visions

Chang Mai was my first stop in Asia. Before Chang Mai, I had no idea what Asia was like. I was originally set to start from Bangkok, but then everyone warned me that I should aim for a softer landing and immediately take a domestic flight to Chang Mai. And they were right, later when […]

24 Mar, 2019 in Koh Samui, Visions

This Chinese new year, I returned to Thailand after 14 years of being away. I can’t imagine why it took me so long. Especially having lived in Asia for a few years since. But I’m very glad that I did. My visit to Koh Samui, which I remembered as an over-touristy commercialized island, compared to […]

20 Mar, 2019 in Chuncheon

I visited Chuncheon in South Korea as a daytrip from Seoul. The area is quite spectacular, with nature scenic views of mountains, rivers, and lakes, a lovely Korean countryside atmosphere. It’s mostly catered for Korean domestic tourists, with attractions like water sports , cable cars, slides, observation decks, sky walks, and an endless array of […]

10 Mar, 2019 in Bangkok, Visions

Thailand was my first stop in Asia, where I spent over 3 months, on and off. It’s been 14 years since I left, and did not have a chance to visit back until this year. I was curious to see what I’ll remember and how I’ll feel about things. To my surprise, there’s very little I […]

8 Mar, 2019 in Fukuoka

While visiting the Fukuoka area in Japan I took a one day getaway trip towards the east to see the Kitakyushu area, and make a stop on the way to do one of my favorite things when I travel – go up cable cars. The higher the better, the more spectacular the views – the happier […]

7 Mar, 2019 in Seoul

In one of my recent visits to Seoul I was looking for something fun and cultural to do and saw that there’s a funky Argentinian show in town –  Fuerza Bruta. I bought tickets without doing too much digging and so wasn’t sure what to expect, and so I was completely taken by surprise and […]

26 Feb, 2019 in Guangdong

Just when I think I covered all the main attractions in my region of Hong Kong someone brings up something new I have not heard of before resulting in me rushing over to have a look and look for new adventures. The Yingxi Fenglin Corridor Scenic Area is only a couple of hours drive from Guangzhou, […]

22 Feb, 2019 in Sokcho

During the last autumn, I went to South Korea to get a bit of real autumn feeling with some colors. Of all the places I visited, the nicest autumn colors were at the lovely Seoraksan National Park. I was originally planning to take the lift up to the mountains and hike a bit, but it was […]

20 Feb, 2019 in Coimbra, Obidos, Visions

On my last trip to Portugal, I did a road trip down from Porto towards Lisbon, going through the mountains and making stops in key cities along the way. There are quite a few remarkable cities to visit on that route, of which I choose two – Obidos and Coimbra. Obidos is a small fortified […]

17 Feb, 2019 in Tel Aviv - Yaffo

Beginning of this year I had the chance to go back and revisit a lovely university campus in Israel – the Tel Aviv University. Following a meeting in a nearby coffee shop with some of the local faculty, I spent a couple of hours roaming the lovely campus. I’ve been here before, I’m sure of […]
