15 Aug, 2019 in Hvar, Visions

This summer I needed a retreat following a European work visit, so I took a quick flight to Rijeka in Croatia so get closer to the coastline and get some warm weather. After a quick visit to Zagreb, I took a flight down to Split, and after a couple of days decided to take the […]

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 […]

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 […]

22 Aug, 2017 in Sicily

While roaming around Sicily with my family we made a stop to the northern town of Cefalu with a gorgeous beach stretch and a charming old town. It captures the essence of the Sicilian experience, historical forts and cathedrals, old pedestrian area with narrow streets offering a variety of restaurants and shopping options, beach chill-out […]

24 Jul, 2017 in Sicily

Taormina was our first stop in Sicily. A gorgeous little old town overlooking the active volcano Etna mountain from afar, with a great stretch of sea side beaches down below, and mountain top fortresses to take in the view. We came in late evening, to see the old town at night, and then spent the […]

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. […]

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 […]

After two years living in Taiwan, on and off, I have come to know Taiwan very well. It’s safe to say that I’ve covered most of the major tourist spots, even making it all the way to the off-the-beaten-track places like Jinmen islands close to the mainland China coast. So, when I made it back […]
