The first stone foundation of the basilica was […]

City Skyline: Lyon Panorama From the Hilltop

If there’s one thing that I regret visiting Lyon (in the central east part of France), that would be – I only stayed for two nights. A city with so much to offer, why did I think of staying there in such a short time? I don’t know the answer to that – but I […]

I Visited The Grand Place in Brussels at Midnight And I Was Surprised to See a Crowd of Hedonists

I visited the Grand Place in Brussels at midnight and I was surprised to see a crowd of hedonists there. Boy, it’s a rendezvous of both locals and tourists who pretend to be locals.

If you’re like me who like to see city skylines, then we could travel together. The view of the Vatican from the top of St Peter Basilica is surreal. You won’t just be able to see the city-state itself but it goes farther beyond Rome. You won’t be able to see skyscrapers like the ones […]

What You See Inside St Peter Basilica in the Vatican

What you see inside St Peter Basilica in the Vatican will be with you in a long time, if not, forever. As someone who grew up Catholic, it’s kinda big deal for me being inside a colossal place of worship. No, I didn’t meet the living Pope but I saw the tombs of the dead […]
