5 Feb, 2018 in Varadero, Visions

The last stop on my trip to Havana, just before wrapping up the two weeks roaming around this fascinating land, was in expat mecca Varadero beach east of Havana on the northern coastline. It’s essentially a very long beach stretch with fluffy white sand and translucent blue waters. I was based a bit outside the tourist […]

9 Dec, 2017 in Guanacaste, Visions

I had a month to go explore Central America moving between jobs, and took the opportunity to visit Costa Rica after visiting Cuba and before wrapping it up in Nicaragua. Compared to Cuba and Nicaragua, Costa Rica is easy travel, very touristy to the point of almost being too touristy. Everything is well organized, people […]

21 Sep, 2017 in Sicily

My last day in lovely Sicily included a visit to the gorgeous Mondello, very close to Palermo. Clear waters, fluffy white sand, and mountains rising in the background, as far as crowded Mediterranean sea beaches go, this is one great beach. Was a bit crowded when we were there, but still was pleasant overall, if you […]

While I was visiting Hong Kong I ran into an old schoolmate who invited me to come visit her department at the University of Macau, and so I had a chance to see Macau again. Macau is a really small place, and I’ve visited a few times, and so I was wondering if there was […]

20 Oct, 2016 in Hong Kong, Visions
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 […]

penghu-islands-taiwan-19

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. […]

15 Sep, 2016 in Tel Aviv - Yaffo

I think most people visiting Israel are pleasantly surprised by how nice the beaches are in the coastal cities. Tel Aviv, the vibrant energetic heart of contemporary Israeli cultures, boosts a very long coastline with some fine beaches, but those tend to get rather crowded and loud. For the more ‘posh’ and sometimes laid back […]

My trip to Cancun in Mexico was absolutely gorgeous. It has gorgeous beaches (#2), extraordinary pyramids (Chichen Itza and Tulum), and an endless array of natural and tourist attractions. To wrap up my series of posts from my visit to gorgeous Cancun the final post is from a daytrip to the beautiful island Mujeres (Isla Mujeres) with […]

5 Aug, 2016 in Gdansk
Sopot Poland (5)

In my last visit to Poland I made my way up to the northern coastline to see a bit of Gdansk and catch Florence and the Machine at the Opener terrific music festival in Gdanyia. Gdansk isn’t exactly world famous for beaches, but, not too far away you have Sopot which offers much nicer beaches […]
