13 Sep, 2019 in Rijeka, Visions

After a cold weekend in mid-summer at the Netherlands, I decided it was time to warm up, and headed down to Croatia. The flight took me to Rijeka, on the north-west of the country, and instead of rushing out to Zagreb and Split, I decided to stay for a few days to get some work […]

8 Sep, 2019 in Graz, Visions

Following travel starting from Croatia, to Italy and Slovenia, I ended up crossing the border from Maribor to stay for a few days in Austrian Graz. There’s a lively old town next to a hill with a fortress and a clock offering some panoramic views of the city from above. Under the hill there’s an […]

31 Aug, 2019 in Trieste, Visions

After exploring a bit of Croatia, and before venturing off to Slovenia, I wanted to see a part of Italy I have not been to before, just near those two countries – Trieste. I’ve made it to Venice a few times, but always failed to take the two hours east to the border to visit […]

31 Aug, 2019 in Split, Visions

Split is a gorgeous town at the center of Croatia, with the best mix: great old town with lots of history, pristine beautiful beaches, quick island getaways, and high mountains. It doesn’t get much better than this. Though it’s touristy, if you know where to go, and you don’t mind venturing off a bit, you […]

25 Aug, 2019 in Visions, Zagreb

In my recent visit to Croatia, I spent a few wonderful days in the capital city Zagreb. It’s a wonderful cultural city, with a pleasant old town, lovely parks, a large selection of specialty museums (museum of broken hearts, 80s, and war photography, to name a few), and lots of funky bars and restaurants. I […]

17 Aug, 2019 in Gelderland, Visions

I lived in the Netherlands for two years with lots of visits when not based there, and still – I have failed to make my way to Arnhem. I wasn’t even sure what I’ll find once I get there, but in one of my recent visits to Netherlands for a conference, I decided to go […]

17 Aug, 2019 in Ljubljana, Slovenia

Been hoping to get around to visit Slovenia for quite some time, and this year I finally got the chance. From Trieste in Italy, I took a disaster Flixbus to Ljubljana and stayed for long weekend. I wasn’t sure what to expect, and so was very pleasantly surprised at the somewhat hipster vibe in the […]

14 Apr, 2019 in Malta, Visions

Malta has been on my TODO list for years, especially when I was living in Europe, but I never really got around to it. Until this year. Finally. I had a few days, a weekend plus, to roam around and enjoy this beautiful country. It was everything I was hoping for, and more. Lots of […]

14 Apr, 2019 in Chaozhou, Visions

This year saw a few exciting changes to Hong Kong. The world’s longest bridge opened connecting Hong Kong and Macau, and Hong Kong hooked up to the China high-speed rail network. It is now possible to get to lots of destinations straight from Kowloon station at the heart of Hong Kong. So, I needed to […]

25 Mar, 2019 in Chang Mai, Visions

Chang Mai was my first stop in Asia. Before Chang Mai, I had no idea what Asia was like. I was originally set to start from Bangkok, but then everyone warned me that I should aim for a softer landing and immediately take a domestic flight to Chang Mai. And they were right, later when […]
