El Caminito in Buenos Aires

El Caminito in Buenos Aires

Spending a day in the La Boca area is a must when you are in Buenos Aires. Sure, the neighbourhood is known for its challenges but it is a fairly safe place during the day, and there are plenty of tourists among the visitors. I took a bus from Puerto Madero in the city’s centre and ventured out to see the real birthplace of tango for myself. El Caminito in...

Gokayama in Spring Snow

Gokayama in Spring Snow

After visiting Shirakawa-go, we had one more stop to make before returning to Kanazawa. After a short drive through narrow mountain roads, some 30km away we parked in front of a shop with a little restaurant attached to it in Gokayama. Unfortunately, it was a bit cloudy outside, a very different weather we experienced in Shirakawa-go, but at least their town was...

I love it when the city has large parks. And you will find many of them in Warsaw, Poland. Most of them are also full of amazing historical monuments, buildings and of course old trees.

Monaco Palace: an Amazing Palace With a Long History of Royal Rule!

The Principality of Monaco is a small, mountainous country on the northern coast of France. It has been an independent state since 1297 and ruled by the same family since 1602. Since I was in Nice, France for a few days, I took a local train to Monaco, which only takes about 20min or so. It was a beautiful and sunny day, perfect for exploring this tiny yet rich in...

Inside La Sagrada Familia

Inside La Sagrada Familia

Every time I was in Barcelona, the long lineups to get tickets to enter La Sagrada Familia discouraged me from visiting it. On this specific trip, I was there with my mother who made a point of visiting it as she had never been there and was very interested in seeing it in person. So I bought reserved tickets online which gave us a window between 11 am and noon for...

The Monastery of Santa Catalina de Siena in Arequipa, Peru

What do you do when you feel like you are going to die from altitude sickness?

Yet, I was not sure I...

I am not sure how many times we passed through Singapore, but it is safe to say that we were there at least six times during that year.
