19 Jul, 2019 in Antwerp

In my last visit to Belgium, I toured the north eastern part of Belgium to explore areas I’ve never visited before. Up north, close to the border with the Netherlands, is a town by the name Turnhout that has an interesting history – it was once the center of manufacturing of playing cards. Because of […]

22 Jun, 2019 in Philadelphia

In my last revisit to Philly, I got to see a few new attractions I have not explored the first time around. There were all sorts of hidden gems and quirky experiences, but the weirdest of them all – by far – was Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens, a non-profit folk art museum with works by mosaic […]

27 Apr, 2019 in Turin

After a few days of touring around Turin (:), I headed out to the nearby mountains, first stop at Rivoli Castle, a large 17th century castle turned contemporary art museum, with wonderful exhibits and the most wonderful scenic views of the area. I adore contemporary art museums and so spent a couple of hours wandering […]

27 Dec, 2018 in Fukuoka

I love specialty museums. I’m so tired of the same old typical museums in each city that every time I run into something different, I’m ecstatic. In a recent trip to Japan to the Fukuoka region, I did a quick trip to the nearby Kitakyushu and while on the bus from one cable car to another […]

22 Nov, 2018 in Turin

I love specialty museums, and I love the cinema, and so there is little that can excite me as coming across a cinema specialty museum, like the one I found out about when visiting Turin. It’s one of the best museums I’ve visited in recent years, and it is so well done I wish I […]

31 Oct, 2018 in Eastern Denmark

Visiting Denmark, I headed off from Copenhagen towards the southern Møns Klint cliff, and on the way noticed an interesting attraction. A specialty museum featuring a large collection of Danish nostalgia, an opportunity to explore Danish culture and compare their nostalgia to my own. It’s quite a comprehensive collection, with endless exhibits, and the complex is […]

6 Aug, 2018 in Around Paris, Visions

This summer I was invited for a few weeks to Paris, and was looking for new things to explore in the area. A local I met who grow up in Chantilly strongly recommended I check it out, a quick daytrip from Paris, so I decided to rent a car and combine Chantilly with exploring the […]

12 Jul, 2018 in HK Attractions

Just when I think I’ve seen everything in Hong Kong, especially museum wise, I run into a new surprise. Away from the tourist beaten track in Tseun Wan, just near the MTR is the Sam Tung Uk Museum, a 200 years old walled village turned museum. Will give you a feel for the Hong Kong history, […]

27 Jan, 2018 in Vilnius

Those who know me personally probably know these two things about me – (1) I really like funky speciality museums, and I’d choose those over fancy old school museums any day, (2) I take a special interest in the human mind, especially biases and heuristics. Which is why the VILNIL Museum of Illusions in Vilnius was […]

1 Nov, 2017 in Liege

Lots of great exhibitions going on in Liege. I previous attended the wonderful “From Salvador to Dali” in 2016, and returned in 2017 to visit the “I will be 20 in 2030”, a funky look at our not so distant future with all that’s happening now with science and technology and the changes happening in […]
