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 […]

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. […]

Bled in Awe

This year, there was quite a buzz regarding summer destinations in the Adriatic. Smart travelers would suggest otherwise, knowing that there will be a barrage of tourists there in summer months but since I’m a dumb traveler and the costs were too attractive, I ditched a well thought out plan around Greece and went for […]

What I Did Last Summer, Part I: Stockholm

It’s excruciating to wait for your summer vacation while you start to see every one of your colleagues starting theirs and it starts to get really quiet in the office. So here I am still planning mine and just flipping through my archives from the past for some inspiration. And then I remembered, I never […]
