  • Valparaiso, Chile
     ‘Valparaíso, how absurd you are…you haven’t combed your hair, you’ve never had time to get dressed, life has always surprised you.’ Pablo Neruda       I have heard that Valparaiso is the most colourful city in the whole Chile. And it probably is. The hill on which the...

Forests, lakes, and rivers, clouds and winds, stars and flowers, stupendous glaciers and crystal snowflakes – every form of animate or inanimate existence, leaves its impress upon the soul of man.  Orison Swett Marden   Not long ago I told you about my wonderful trip to Ushuaia. I hope you...
  • Madrid
Autumn in Madrid. I think it is my favourite season in the capital of Spain. The Retiro park in the heart of Madrid is always beautiful, but the colourful trees make it extra special this time of the year and the golden sunsets add some more brightness to the picture....
Everest is famous but Langtang in Nepal is spectacular! Beaches or Mountains? Many people love the beach because it’s warm. Fair skin, sunburn and sand are the three reason I’ve never been a fan. I would pick the mountains any day! In 2009 I had my first true taste of...

The first place that pops into mind when you mention Orlando is Disney. Thank you, mass marketing. For me, the real magic was learning about all of the local trails and hikes. Turns out Orlando is a great place to get outside to discover native plants, trees, bugs and wildlife!...
I have been to the Netherlands many times before, but this time I looked at the dutch towns differently. I guess I should ‘blame’ this blog for that, beacuse since I started it, I look at things more attentively while traveling. I notice details, colours, architecture. I am learning to...
Hello everyone, I hope you are having a lovely Sunday. Today’s postcard is traveling to you straight from chilean part of Patagonia, one of the places in the world where humans are guests in the wild nature. I have heard many stories from people who have been to Patagonia, but...
