From Russia with love

In the beginning of this month, I have been on holiday in Russia: Moscow and Saint Petersburg. I have just returned home.

I have never been there before, and though I have heard it should be a beautiful country, I was surprised on how fantastic those two cities really are.

There has almost always been – and still are – some political issues. But it is hard to find a country, where this isn’t the case.

Everywhere I went, I met very nice and helpful people.

Time off in Japan

My holiday this summer has been a short trip to Japan. I have just returned from a fantastic – yet pretty warm – journey to the cities Kyoto and Tokyo, with a short visit to Hiroshima and Miyajima.




The Road Ahead

RoadYou may see a road, so easy to follow.
But you still can’t be certain where it will take you.
And if you keep on staring at the road ahead, you won’t notice those many shortcuts and detours, leading to other Places!
