Large Japanese cities tend to have atleast one shopping mall with a ferris wheel on top. It’s a trend, and I’ve seen this spreading to Taipei and other Asian cities. On a clear day, it’s a great way to see the city from above. So, on my last day in Sapporo on a day with […]

I spent a few weeks in Sapporo this summer and my accommodation was mostly based in the very lively Susukino area. Lots of funky bars and pubs and strange night life with many different adventures, but one unique somewhat touristic hangout that’s actually worth visiting is the bartending show at Flair Bar es overlooking the intersection at the […]

3 Nov, 2016 in Dusseldorf, Visions

I’ve used the Dusseldorf airport quite a number of times, but have never really taken the time to go see the city itself. One lovely Sunday, I decided to take the quick 1.5 hours bus from Maastricht to go explore Dusseldorf. I spent a day walking around the old town and the Rhine river and […]

The wonderful about living in Maastricht at pretty much the center of western Europe is that many countries are within easy reach for a weekend getaway. One gloomy weekend I decided I should head out and see more of the area before it becomes too cold and rainy. So, two hours south through clear roads […]

Just before heading out to spend the summer in Asia, I had a chance to visit the nearby Bonn in Germany. It was only a weekend daytrip, so i didn’t get to see all that Bonn has to offer, but still, there were some nice things to share. I started with the old town and […]

park-cytadela-poznan-7

On my last day in Poznan Poland I did a whole day of walking around, and decided to go visit the city park – Park Cytadela. As the name suggests, it’s a park built on the ruins of a fort, in this case Fort Winiary. I started from the Heroes Monument, walked around, visited the army […]

visions-of-hong-kong-hk-2

On and off I spent over 5 years living in Hong Kong. It’s where I lived the longest out of my home country, and it therefore has a special place in my heart. This summer was the first time I went back to visit since I left in 2014, and – as expected – it […]

17 Oct, 2016 in Penghu islands

During my last visit to Taiwan I finally made the trip to visit the remote Penghu islands. Although I’ve lived in Taiwan on and off for almost two years, I never had the chance to go visit, and so when visiting back and looking for something new I knew this is where I should be. […]

At the beginning of the summer I had a chance to go visit Polish Gdansk, a lovely old town with many atmospheric restaurants and cafes, maritime history and port area. To get a feel for the city you might want to head up an observation deck and a good place for that is the old Saint Mary Church […]

14 Oct, 2016 in Venice, Visions

Oh, Venice. How long I’ve waited to see you. For years I’ve been meaning to go, and came close many times, but never quite got around to it. Something always came up. But this time, a family gathering to celebrate a significant holiday finally gave me the opportunity to catch this beautiful city in almost […]
