Hello summer! It is indeed summer season now! The weather was quite hot today. We had over 30 degrees Celsius in our area. With this temperature, I have to water the plants and flowers in the backyard to keep it alive and blooming.

Let me share to you this photo taken in one of the festivals I visited in Germany. This was taken 6 years ago. Wow! Imagine that! Thanks to my digital camera and external hard drive. I can always travel in time by simply browsing at my photo albums. ==> READ MORE


I believed not many of you are familiar about this place called Demre. Unless you visited this town, for sure you  have an idea about it. Demre was  named after the river Demre. It is a Lycian town of Myra, the home of Saint Nicholas of Myra, the historical man later developed into the figure of Santa Claus.  Many of us believed that Santa Claus was  somewhere from Scandinavia but  history says, he is from Myra.

Demre  is located in the Antalya Province on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey.

The Roman Amphitheatre in Demre, Turkey.

One of the must-sights to see in this town is the Roman amphitheatre. It is considered as the largest theatre in Lycia and one of the main attractions of Myra.  So far, during our visit the theatre is still in good shape. It hasa double-vaulted corridors  and are well-preserved.  ==> READ MORE


Summer time is party time but where is summer? The weather in our place the past week and until this week was quite not so friendly. Temperature ranging from 10 degrees Celsius in the night and up to 19 degrees during the day don’t really feel like summer weather. I am still thankful with this kind of weather. Unlike in other countries who are experiencing massive heat like in Pakistan, I rather have the weather we have. I heard over the news that there were already a lot of casualties brought by the extreme heat in Pakistan. ==> READ MORE


There are certain holiday experiences that you need to make sure you have. They are essential to the enjoyment of the trip, and to helping broaden your mind. A lot of these will be visiting historic places, or taking part in significant events. These are things many people will never get to do in their lives. So it’s important that you make the most of them, and that you document everything.

Myra is one of the places we visited in Turkey in my recent travel. It was a 15-day trip comprising of a one week round trip in Turkey and one week cruise in Greece. That was a very interesting holiday visiting beautiful and historic places in both countries.

I am happy to be backed here! How have you been folks? I am quite tired today  for some reasons. I guess,  this is due to the busy day yesterday at work.  Short in personnel and too many  work to be done.

It is better to share for now the great and happy times I had in  Marrakesh. Wow, I could not really imagine that I did visited the  “world-famous square” last time. I have seen a lot of travel documentations about Marrakesh and promised myself to be there  once in my life. Indeed, that  wish and dream to visit  one of Morocco’s four former imperial cities came into reality. ==> READ MORE


Happy Easter everyone! The weather was not really friendly during Easter week but that is not a problem for me.  I have to work the whole Easter weekend. I would love to spend it at home or somewhere but since I was scheduled to work, I cannot do anything about  it. Besides in two weeks from now, the first vacation for this year will be starting already.  I really need a break and I am very  excited  for the upcoming travels.

Spring is finally here!  In some weeks, spring festivals will be commencing in the different places in Germany especially in Bayern or Bavaria region. One thing I love about this country are the festivals that are going on all year round. One of the Volksfest I witnessed was in Neumarkt in der Oberfpalz or Upper Palatinate region  in Bavaria. ==> READ MORE


I guess, I have to slowly say goodbye to March! In almost an hour,  it will be over and we will be entering one of  my favorite months and this is  April. You might be wondering why? I love nature and I love  plants and flowers and I am proud to be a gardener of my own.  The month of  April is usually the  time when tulips  are also flowering. In Europe,  this is the time of the year where tulip flowers bloom.  I am so grateful that I had the chance to visit the Garden of Europe  which is known as Keukenhof.

These are some of my favorite colors of tulips. Anyway, I love them all! Keukenhof is indeed a paradise for me.

Everytime I look at the pictures I had from this garden, I am badly missing my great travel buddies.  This is one of the places we visited during that adventure last 2013.   These lovely ladies named Joy, Jean and Malou  are really awesome travel buddies.  ==> READ MORE
