Beautiful Amsterdam

Beautiful Amsterdam

Posted from Amsterdam, North Holland, Netherlands. Amsterdam wasn’t what I expected. Anyone who who’s been to this famous Dutch town knows what I’m talking about. I’d seen the photos and I’d heard the stories. I was expecting Amsterdam to be filled with potheads and prostitutes lurking in alleys like some grim Tim Burton movie.  If there […]

the grand sites of Rome

the grand sites of Rome

Posted from Rome, Lazio, Italy. My final day in the Eternal City was reserved for seeing the grand sites of Rome. It was early May, 24 degrees, and the sun was ever so bold. The weather was holding out perfectly for more walking. And walk I did, already clocking some 48,000 steps on my Vivofit the past two […]

roaming the streets of Rome

roaming the streets of Rome

Posted from Rome, Lazio, Italy. The streets of Rome in the morning are spectacular. The cobblestoned passageways are virtually empty, void of the people from the previous evening, though the party favours litter the streets. The sun creeps over the high buildings, conjuring fantasies of bygone eras, and characters my imagination insists once existed. All but […]

visiting the Vatican Museums and beneath

visiting the Vatican Museums and beneath

Posted from Vatican City, Lazio, Italy. My three days in Rome began with the Vatican Museums. I’m not a religious person, but … when in Rome. My Airbnb host made me promise the night before that I would get a proper Roman breakfast before I headed to the Vatican. By proper, she meant a cappuccino […]

trails around Wakatipu

trails around Wakatipu

Posted from Lower Hutt, Wellington, New Zealand. It’s touted as one of the most beautiful countries on the planet, and if you spend a few hours outside here, it’s easy to see why. Much of the land is unspoiled, untouched by the hand of man, left to its own wild inclinations, free to develop as […]

Stockholm and expensive laundry

Stockholm and expensive laundry

Posted from Stockholm, Stockholm County, Sweden. The train ride from Oslo to Stockholm is only about five hours. It’s not exactly express, but that’s pretty good for a big carriage on wheels. The only complaint I have with train travel in Scandinavia is it can be expensive if you don’t book at least three months […]

Paris, sing me a song

Paris, sing me a song

Posted from Paris, Île-de-France, France. My whole life I’ve wanted to see Paris. I’d been to Charles de Gaulle Airport three times, all stop-overs, but I never had the window seat, or the plane took a round-about way on its approach impeding my view of the city of love, and thusly my desire to see […]

Sanur

Sanur

Posted from Denpasar, Bali, Indonesia. From the not so magical land of Ubud I travelled to Sanur, a sleepy seaside town on the east coast of Bali. Sure, there are more famous towns I could’ve gone to. And I’m not quite sure why I chose Sanur, but to be honest, I thought it was on […]

Vienna

Posted from Address not found. The train ride from Salzburg to Vienna is a short journey. There are a few train stations in Vienna, with trains departing and arriving from different locations. I wasn’t sure where my ticket would leave me, but the transportation system in the city is excellent and very straight forward to […]
