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 […]

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 […]

25 May, 2019 in Padua

Earlier this year I attended a one week workshop in Padova (Padua) in northern Italy. Padua University in one of the oldest universities in the world with famous folks like Galileo Galilei as resident scholars. When not in the workshop, we enjoyed tours of the university campus and the city. We visited some lovely historical […]

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 […]

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 […]

10 Mar, 2019 in Bangkok, Visions

Thailand was my first stop in Asia, where I spent over 3 months, on and off. It’s been 14 years since I left, and did not have a chance to visit back until this year. I was curious to see what I’ll remember and how I’ll feel about things. To my surprise, there’s very little I […]

31 Jan, 2019 in Porto, Visions

Ever since I first visited Portugal, to Lisbon and Sintra, I’ve been meaning to come back and explore more, and this year managed to make my way back and explore more of the north. First stop, Porto, with a grand river set between two hills, connected by a series of bridges. Walkable old town, lots […]

21 Dec, 2018 in Paris, Visions

This year I was fortunate to have a couple of weeks to spend in Paris and go and explore beyond what I already saw in my previous visits. I’ve been to Paris quite a few times, but it seems like every visit my understanding of the city becomes more nuanced, I notice different things, my […]

29 Nov, 2018 in Normandy, Visions

In my recent visit to France, I rented a car and did a drive towards the northwest to see Rouen and the French northwest coastline, to see Fécamp & Étretat. This is a photo summary of my trip, starting from Roeun, my visit to the NEOMA business school campus, and then the breathtaking coastline.     […]

29 Nov, 2018 in Guangdong, Visions

By now, I’ve explored most of what Hong Kong has to offer and so I find myself venturing out to the nearby mainland China Guangdong province. When I ask my Hong Kong friends if they go travel in Guangdong they usually reply there isn’t much to visit or see there, it’s not like Guangdong is […]
