Ready for a tour in one of the dryest place on Earth ? Yes, then follow me A while ago, I went to Morocco for a trek in the Atlas Mountain and I had a few days free before returning to my lovely Amsterdam, so I wanted to experience a night or two in the desert. I booked a trip to Merzhouga and Erg Chebbi with my trekking agency, the driver brought me from the Atlas Mountains to the door [...]
Moscow with such a limited time, it’s a real challenge ! My time in Russia being limited and because I wanted to spend more time in Saint Petersburg (see my previous post), therefore I told myself that I should not miss the chance to see Moscow even for a very limited time. Well knowing that I had only 3 days/2 nights (including my travel from and to Saint Petersburg) to visit this megalopolis (11 millions people), there was no doubt [...]
Visiting St Petersburg is a fantastic opportunity that you will not regret, but keep in mind that if you want a fantastic experience, you need time. Some people say you need a lifetime to fully understand the city which has a huge historical background, I totally agree with them. TIP:As St Petersburg is extremely generous with sightseeings, art and other point of interests, so TIME is a crucial factor you need to consider when you are planning your trip. I [...]

I wanted to go to Russia but using train as the main transportation. So I had an opportunity last November 2011, when I had to go for a business trip in Finland, I grabbed that chance to check how far Helsinki was from Saint [...]

Well I know, it’s pretty much a “tourist spot” for everyone coming in Manila, but somehow, it’s “MUST SEE” place in order to understand who was Jose Rizal. In the park, you have a full section dedicated to the national hero. One thing that striked me was the scene representing the [...]
Over the last 10 years, I noticed a strong increase of Au-Pair coming from the Philippines in Europe. Having myself a kid of 9 years now, I was exploring at that time (when he was a toddler) with my partner the possibility to enroll to an Au Pair program but at the end we just found another way. The Au-Pair program provides an excellent way for families to have a nanny at home that can help them by taking care [...]
Here is recap of my favorite moments of 2011. No need to make a long story, each pics correspond to a special atmosphere. Enjoy !
The other day I was invited for a dinner in a fine dinning restaurant called The Water Library located in Bangkok. More info about the exact location can be found here This well-respected establishment has not received any Michelin Stars yet ..there is still some miles to cover before The Water Library belong to the supreme élite. Overall the dinner was interesting enough to get my full attention An interesting aspect of their “fine cuisine” is the fact they want [...]
