Photo Journal Entry #2

Having lived in Paris and having been brainwashed by the North that it’s better than the South, I haven’t really thought of a reason to visit Marseille. I imagined it to be like a normal French city just closer to the sea. I was wrong. If anything, this more-Tuscan-than-French cathedral is already an illustration of […]

Photo Journal Entry #1

Chefchaouen or should I say, Smurfsville? Morocco’s blue city is the right blend of picture-perfect sky blue hues and that of traditional bucolic terracotta. The painted village was a little bit uphill and the more modern city center is actually, way less blue. I remember we spent a good two hours in the latter thinking […]

This Time in Africa

This quarantine downtime is finally giving me some time to add some entry to this otherwise inactive blog. It’s getting a little bit crazy out there so I need a little bit of distraction. Before the whole COVID-19 explosion, I managed to catch a trip to Kenya for a friend’s wedding. We were lucky that […]

Frozen Series – 6. Chamonix

I know this would have been more interesting if I’d talk about skiing but we weren’t ski-ready when we went here and we were only on a day trip from Geneva. But I must say, I didn’t know I would say this about France, but next to Geneva, this is quite a budget destination. And […]

A Night in the Sahara

You can’t leave Morocco without visiting the sand dunes of their part of the Sahara. The golden sea of sand that change hues with the sunlight will forever stay in your memory. I was lucky enough with a couple of friends to witness its grandeur with the best weather possible. There are many packages from […]

Magical Moments in Montserrat

Hello, blogging world! Yes, I sound like a Blogspot noob from the ’90s. I kind of still am. It has been a while since my last post, more than a year even. The past year has been devoted to my thesis. I did joggle blogging and my manuscript but I’m no multitasker, so this blog […]

The Frozen Series – 5. Frederiksborg Castle

It’s the time of the year once again, when the spicy aroma of mulled wine and the vanilla-hinted scent of fluffy waffles dominate the air, at least in the upper hemisphere. It’s time therefore for the winter series! Let’s start this cold season featurettes with a take on the Frederiksborg Castle in Copenhagen. I was […]

The Venetian Holy Trinity

Don’t get me wrong, Venice is beautiful in person. In fact, at first, it was not really on my bucket list because I thought it would be so touristic and hence, overrated just judging from its ubiquity in social media. And although normally I find myself quite right with my gutfeel, I couldn’t say the […]

Pilgrimage to Dragonstone

The rocky coast of Northern Spain is always a treat for the mind, the body, the senses. Long sandy coasts locked by plateaus of expansive greenery and cliffs withered by the beating of the crashing Atlantic waves, these picturesque sceneries await any traveller who would find himself lost in this less known part of Europe. […]

The King of the Adriatic

Before I became a fan of Game of Thrones, I had wanted already to visit Dubrovnik. Its intact medieval city-fortress hugged by the azure waters of the Adriatic breathes a charm that understandably seduced the myriad of tourists that stomp its stone alleys all year round. It was definitely crowded this year, enough for them […]
