Kiev – the Winter Wonderland

January 30, 2012


Frankly I wouldn't have gone to Kiev in January unless I was asked to go but there are a couple of things I highly recommend in this surprisingly pretty city.

Short trip to Vienna

October 25, 2011


I have just come back from the beautiful Vienna. It was for a conference so I didn’t get too much time to explore and I’m kicking myself that I didn’t get up earlier and jog around the ‘Ring’ which is just a few kilometers and goes around the city. By walking around you get to […]

Pleasantly surprised by Moscow

October 6, 2011

Serene Sarajevo

January 7, 2010


Sarajevo enchanted me.The scars of the war that ended just 15 years ago are very visable. There is barely a building that doesn’t have bullet holes in it. The city is nestled in a valley of stunning mountain ranges. I want to go back and explore this region, ideally driving down from Slovenia (one of […]
