Roaming the Isles of Giants

I’m still bummed that I couldn’t travel and it will be a while before I see again the sunny corner of the world I grew up in. Part of me is somewhat grateful that I am in a good place during the pandemic but my heart still goes to the people back home who are […]

Photo Journal Entry #6

Last year, my girlfriend and I went to Austria to celebrate our anniversary. I have been to Vienna way before but I did not know much about the rest of the country. I was completely surprised and amazed to see its mountainous regions whose stunning views rival that of Switzerland. One of them is Hallstatt […]

Prague Panoramas

I can’t believe I’ve been living in Prague for 9 months already. Time flies so fast, I still feel like I don’t know much about the city. But from the many weekends I spent wandering around the city, I may have picked a few favorite spots. I have a penchant for panoramic views so all […]

Photo Journal Entry #5

This photo was taken in the Maps Hall of the Vatican Museum, during our long and winding road to the Sistine Chapel which was a real struggle. I, and a couple of friends, knew this the hard way. We thought booking tickets in advance will cut our journey through the labyrinth but no. I have […]

Photo Journal Entry #4

It was my first time in Spain and I was with three Czech friends on a road trip. I let the type A friend plan everything because this is the YOLO point in my life, and luckily he made the right decision. Or maybe because the destination was too beautiful to care about the rough […]

Photo Journal Entry #3

For the last four years, it’s been my yearly tradition to take a peek at the cherry blossom blooms of Parc de Sceaux close to Paris. The sprawling park with a chateaux main piece and a man-made lake is a springtime delight in itself but just one week in April, it hosts the densest pink […]

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 […]
