This weird Singapore attraction will make you say WTF every 5′!

Sometimes you visit beautiful places and you love them! Other times you see ugly places and wish you’d never wasted your time! And then there are these places that are ugly maybe (by conventional standards), a bit extravagant, of questionable aesthetics and with no apparent reason of existence! Such thoughts stick in your head so much sometimes that they make you wanna find more about them, about the state of mind of their creator and you end up loving them in the end! Haw…

Photos from Portmeirion, Wales that will make you cancel your italian holiday!

I’m not ashamed to admit that I planned my recent visit to Wales around Portmeirion! Portmeirion is a not a typical welsh looking place! It looks as if it came straight out of the pages of a fairytale taking place in an italian village! The photos  that follow will give you a good idea about the village and its unique beauty! This is the entrance to the village after a long walk in the forest: The first thing you see is a cute little…

Normandy: Monet was here! And so was I! With a time delay!

We tend to visit a lot of places because of their historical importance, the events that took place in them and for the people who made history there. During my recent road trip around Northern France I felt something I’d never felt before! There were a lot of places of great historical significance, but there was an abundance of beauty everywhere I turned, as well! That bell tower in Honfleur And when I was having a late evening stroll in the…

ATH, Athens, Greece, To write home about

Molecular gastronomy in the best restaurant in Athens: The day I had to eat a greek salad with a shovel!

First things first: I had no idea what molecular gastronomy is until Maria talked to me about it a few years ago! With photos! And excitement! And then she shared the bill amount and I lost interest for a while! But humans tend to overspend when they want to celebrate a special occasion and so did I the other day! What is molecular gastronomy?  In very simple words: Molecular Gastronomy blends physics and chemistry to transform the tastes and textures of…

10 of the most morbid tourist attractions in the world!

There are certain tourist attractions we’re all familiar with. They’ve been there for ages (and some not for that long) and they need no introductions. Sometimes you don’t even question why they are popular, because they’re simply iconic! Who cares what the Eiffel Tower was made for? It just has to be in the background of your selfie from #Paris while you’re feeling #blessed! 😀 But then there are cemeteries and attractions that don’t really bring back the fondest of memories! Some of them are morbid. And some are even more morbid! But there are also the most morbid tourist attractions of them all! These include:…

This is the most surreal restaurant in Buenos Aires!

I can’t remember where or when I heard about this place for the first time, but I thought that with such a unique concept, it’d be so easy to find information about it when I next happen to be in Buenos Aires, Argentina. So when I knew I was visiting and that I would have good company, I started my research for El Gato Viejo. And I could hardly find any adequate info. Especially in English! What is El Gato Viejo?…

This is the face of the beautiful girl from #FollowMeTo!

This needs no introductions! I’m sure you’ve all come across these or similar photos all around the internet: And in case you live under a rock and you haven’t seen them, surely you’ve bumped into photos of couples imitating this pose in the streets and in tourist places! Or maybe such couples have been in your way while you’re trying to take a photo, so you weren’t really happy with their reenactment! We’re all familiar with the woman’s hair and sense of…

4 unique places to eat, drink and party in Berlin

I can’t say my days in Berlin weren’t full or busy (in a good way), but next time I’m there I’d like to explore more of its quirky restaurants, trendy cafes and alternative bars! But if, like me, you don’t have the luxury of time and want to go straight to unique places with a character, then I would suggest the following: 1. For breakfast or brunch: Cafe Bilder Buch ◊ Akazienstraße 28. Closest train stations: S1: Julius-Leber-Brücke, U7: Kleistpark, U7:Eisenacher Straße…

Abandoned Berlin: A risky day in a creepy theme park

“Are you prepared to climb a tree if the dogs start chasing us?” Kostas asked me while we could hear the sounds of dogs barking in the background! I knew he could climb any tree, but me? I can hardly climb 2 steps at a time! So, I started mentally preparing for the worst case scenario: A bunch of aggressive watchdogs running after us with their drooling tongues hanging from their hungry mouths and us having to find the closest tree and climb…

The sounds of an abandoned theme park that will creep you out!

Later this week I’m going to share some awesome photos from an abandoned socialist theme park that I visited in Berlin, Germany. There was such an eerie feeling all around the place! And having heard there are dogs and guards patrolling it was enough to give me the chills! But until my next post (which will include loads of photos and details about the whole experience), this is a short video I took. There’s no effects added in the sound!…
