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 […]

4 Aug, 2016 in HK Hikes
Tung Lung Chau Island Hong Kong (21)

Hong Kong is my second home. I’ve live in Hong Kong for many years and I’ve had plenty of time to explore most of the places in Hong Kong. Even though Hong Kong is one of the most diverse exciting cities in the world, I did a pretty good job of covering almost everything, and […]

18 Feb, 2016 in Antalya
Phaselis ancient city Kemer Antalya Turkey (28)

The Antalya province isn’t all beaches and all-inclusive resorts. Sure, it has some remarkable beaches, but those are just part of what the region has to offer. Remarkably, Antalya province has ancient cities dating back thousands of years set in the most gorgeous surroundings, the ancient people did know how to pick their spots. I visited […]

31 Aug, 2015 in Cancun, Visions
Visions of Cancun Mexico (2)

The Cancun area offers some spectacular beaches and sea-related attractions. Booking a flight to another destination (in Canada! from Chicago!), I noticed peculiar pricing that made Cancun Mexico one of the cheapest stopovers. Although it was completely out of the way, I seized the opportunity to go see Cancun as a farewell to Mexico before […]

Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve - San Diego (22)

Torrey Pines is a natural reserve in San Diego offering spectacular ocean views, gorgeous hiking trails, and a unique opportunity to enjoy coastal nature at its best well-preserved moon-like mountains next to a long stretch of beach and all sorts of wild life. It’s got a little bit of everything for anyone, and all within […]

16 May, 2015 in Los Angeles
Seal Beach Los Angeles California (24)

Los Angeles has some wonderful beaches, and Seal beach is a prime example for a great beach not too far away from town. In my last conference visit to Long Beach I found affordable accommodation between Long Beach and Seal Beach, and a morning visit strolling down the beach I discovered a desolated quiet stretch […]

10 May, 2015 in Los Angeles
Venice Beach Los Angeles California (14)

Los Angeles has some great beaches and each beach has a somewhat different style and targeted at different populations. Venice Beach, to me, feels like the hippie laid-back joint. A great boardwalk, lots of crazy little shops, snack booths, cheap bars and pubs, street vendors and musicians, and then – ofcourse – the beach. A […]

6 May, 2015 in San Diego
Coronado Beach San Diego California-005

San Diego has some terrific beaches, some say they’re some of the best beaches in the United States. Having lived in Florida before, my standards are set pretty high, but there’s no doubt the beaches I saw in San Diego were beautiful. Long white stretch of beach, puffy sand, clear blue waters, not a boat […]

La Jolla Cove Beach - San Diego California (25)

San Diego is a lovely city. In mid-winter around Christmas time I took off from freezing cold Illinois to warm up down in southern United States. I’ve been wanting to visit San Diego for long, having heard wonderful things about one of the nicest most livable American cities. It has so many things going for […]

20 Dec, 2014 in France, Visions
Visions of France (45)

After a long absence from Europe, I got to spend a couple of wonderful weeks in Paris and roaming around France. To my delight, I was joined by some of my charming family to head out from the Paris airport east to explore the wonders of Champagne province. From there, we roamed around circling Paris […]
