A traditional city trip due to usual and trivial case of our marriage anniversary — but the destination in any aspect trivial, not to mention, usual… New York, New York! March 2018
A short trip to Malta and Gozo, very intensive three days in June 2016.
A week in the Holy Land, with the highlight of Jerusalem, a holy place for all three Abrahamitic religions. March 2016.
The windy town of Essaouira on Morocco’s Atlantic coasts just opposite the Canary Islands, but how different. February 2015.
Learning to cook the Laotian way in Luang Prabang, from the early morning market purchases to the final feast. 1st October 2007.
Before going to Venice, read Joseph Brodsky’s “Fondamenta degli Incurabili”. It will sharp your senses to the essentials. Otherwise you will see the town just as a large tourist trap. And Venice is not guilty for this. See it with poet’s eyes, a poet hit hard by his fate. Otherwise you’ll miss it. And don’t ask me what “it” is. May 2006.
Although some professional thieves stole my camera in a tram, I do admit I somehow had nothing against the town itself. Lisboa in the winter light. Always worth visiting. February 2006.
