Highlights of Sevilla (Spain) – and how to see them on a budget

We’re leaving Sevilla this weekend for Japan. We’ve been here 8 weeks and have loved it, Sevilla makes both an excellent “slow” base (as I’ve previously covered) as well as a great destination for a tourist on vacation. We’ve made a few day trips outside the city but honestly, Sevilla itself has kept us busy. [...]


Córdoba (Spain) and the Mezquita – one of the most incredible sights you’ll ever see

We’ve had the fortune to see some incredible religious buildings over the last few years (including the Vatican earlier this year). Of those, it is Córdoba’s Mezquita that made the biggest impression on me.


A month in Sevilla (Spain): observations, experiences and thoughts

We’ve been in Sevilla just over a month as I write this (we have 3 weeks until we leave Spain for Japan). But it didn’t take us long to fall in love with this city – Sevilla is simply amazing and for full-time travellers like us it has made a fantastic base. In this post [...]


Avoiding Europe in the summer…and other places to go instead.

We’ve seen way too many tourists this summer. Europe always has a lot of tourists, there’s a reason it is most people’s favorite continent (including ours). We’ve spent the last 3 summers in Europe. But I think we’ll be taking a break from that over the next few years. It wasn’t just our recent stay [...]

Guanajuato, Mexico – the prettiest town I’ve ever seen

I love Guanajuato, it’s the prettiest town I’ve seen anywhere. I was here a few years ago and had my visit ruined when I came down with a horrible case of the craps (don’t ever order a salad in Mexico). So this time around I had a mission – to come back to Guanajuato and [...]

Driving Spectacular Mt. Biokovo, Croatia

Mount Biokovo has some of the most stunning views I’ve seen anywhere. I’d seen photos before and wanted to visit – but when I went with Croatian friends Goran and Vedran (who had never been) we were all blown away by the natural beauty and incredible views in this Nature Park. What makes Biokovo an [...]


Wild, Wacky Skopje (Macedonia). One of the Strangest Places we’ve been

Skopje is not the most beautiful place we’ve visited. But it might just be the most interesting and weirdest place we’ve ever been. Everywhere we walked we had “WTF?” moments: “there’s a pirate ship in the middle of the river! WTF?”, “look, there’s a London double decker bus! WTF?”, “those colors all over the monuments! [...]

Photo Essay on Lisbon, Portugal. And why we were happy to leave…

Photo Essay on Lisbon, Portugal. And why we were happy to leave…

We spent the month of August in Lisbon. For me, it was a return to a city that I had visited 25 years ago. Lisbon is a very popular place these days, attracting tourists with its beautiful architecture, tiled streets, sunny days (it is known as the sunshine capital), historic sites, and cuisine.
