The Sunrise in Santorini

Santorini is known for its sunset – yes, it’s majestic! My favorite comment on the sunset in Santorini was from a very nice taxi driver. He said he’s been living in Santorini for more than 50 years and he doesn’t get tired of watching the sunset because they’re different everyday. Perhaps. Although I’ve only watched [...]

Last Year’s Day Trip to Gruyère

It’s been almost a year since I last posted something here. Although 2013 was particularly a slow year for travelling around Europe, I must admit that my inactiveness in writing was because of work. 2013 was indeed a roller coaster ride for me at work with all the emergencies and crisis all over the world [...]

Pascua en Barcelona (Day 1)

In case I have not said it enough, I love Barcelona! In my almost 3 years in Geneva, I’ve been to over 20 cities in Europe and I must say, Barcelona remains my favorite city in Europe. Maybe it is the historical and cultural link; maybe it is the gastronomic treat; maybe it is the [...]
