The Menara Garden in Marrakech, Morocco was supposed to be spectacular! It’s supposed to be one hell of a view that would make me decide to move and settle in ...
OH, THE PLACES YOU'LL GO!
Ouarzazate is the door to the Sahara, the world’s longest desert. And believe it or not, the desert here is backdropped by snow-capped Atlas Mountains – even in summer. It’s only here where you can see that extreme scenery of nature, totally different from each other but they blend well as one landscape that’s made […]
I have a 6-hour layover at Amsterdam so I decided to get out of the airport and explored the city centre on foot. For almost three hours, I walked at my own pace, following the direction a Dutch friend told me to do to maximize my time. Right after I exited the Amsterdam Central station, […]

All the things my friends (who have been here before) told me about the celebration were true. Madrid, I declare, is the proudest city in the world! The diversity of people attending is […]
