10 Mar, 2017 in HK Attractions

In 2014 I left Hong Kong after living there for a few years. Although Hong Kong and the region are generally in very fast development, the changes are not always noticeable to tourists – the last time I visited there were new MTR lines popping up (e.g., there are now one taking you to Ocean […]

8 Feb, 2017 in Brussels

Since I already started covering Christmas markets of last year in Paris and their nearby Ferris wheel, might as well mention one more. My little sister came to visit me around Christmas time and I had the pleasure of exploring Brussels with her for the first time. Luckily for us, the Christmas market was in full […]

To get your bearings in a new place or just to get a feel for a city’s beautiy, it’s best to find a good spot to see the city from above.

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 […]

Lake Michigan walk - Chicago (53).JPG

The first thing I did after arriving in Chicago and putting down my things was to head over to the lake-side and stroll along the lake towards the city. My lovely host family were located at the adorable boys-town East Lakeview, only two blocks away from the water and so I was there within minutes, […]
