    I am about to embark on a 15 days Okinawa + Taiwan trip, and i have yet to blog about the Europe trip which happened almost a year ago! I thought i should do one blog entry before i go, and Montenegro is probably the most memorable among the places i have visited. The other-worldly […]

  • Renting a car in Europe

    Renting a car in Europe

    This posting is long overdue. I’ve written about car rental in Japan, Korea and Thailand, but i have done car rental in Europe more times than elsewhere combined.

  • Laundry art

    Laundry art

    I’ve just gotten back from my month long Europe trip and there is much to write about, and I will start with this one. I can’t explain the reason exactly, but I found it artful seeing laundry hung outside the house. You don’t find them all over Europe, only in the more sunny southern parts. […]

    #onemontheuropetrip Italy part 1

    We’ve been in Italy for only 3 days, but it feels as if it’s been 3 weeks. Just so much to see and experience.

    In 2010 when i visited my sister who lives in Manchester, UK, she asked what i would like to see while in the UK. I thought for a moment, and the idea that came up was, gardens.

  • Travel Bucket List: Spanish Food

    Travel Bucket List: Spanish Food

    Ok, you must be wondering what Spanish food has to do with a travel bucket list. Spain does have many places worthy of being added to your bucket list, such as the Alhambra, but over and above, I love Spanish food. A satisfying breakfast with Churros, toast with cheese and ham and scrambled eggs (don’t the […]

    Probably the first thing that comes to mind for anyone who knows something about Romanian Castles is Dracula, the novel by Bram Stoker about the vampire Count Dracula who lives in a castle somewhere in Romania. Due to the commercial interest that an association with the fictional vampire attracts, many a castles have laid claim […]
