1001 Places I’d Like to Visit Before I Die #13 – Sydney and Perth

^Vienna State Opera shot I took from the Albertina’s mezzanine. What charm do Opera houses have at night that enchants a photobuff? Just look at this photo and don’t tell me you don’t find them breathtaking. Above is Vienna’s State Opera House (Wiener Staatsoper) glowing in gold at about 11 PM, took that shot when Read More

1001 Places I’d like to Visit Before I Die #12 – Iceland

Remember the Mighty Ducks? It was one of the movies I watched a lot as a youngster and I particularly remember a scene about Coach Gordon Bombay eating ice cream with their opponent’s coach, conversation goes like: Coach Bombay: I thought Iceland was covered with ice. María: No, it’s very green! Coach Bombay: I thought Read More

1001 Places I’d like to visit before I die #11 – Lipari, Sicily

Lipari could be one of the nearest places we could visit this summer…but the beaches of Hungary is nearer so I doubt if Lipari will be off my list of places to visit soon.

1001 Places I’d like to visit before I die #9 – Uluru

Another World Heritage site on my list of places to see is Uluru or Ayers Rock, a large sandstone rock formation in the southern part of the Northern Territory in central Australia. Uluru is an island mountain…it’s like a hill of rock in the middle of a dry region. Forget the high temperature in the region, I’d definitely love to Read More

1001 Places I’d Like to Visit Before I Die #8 – Pamukkale

Where we live is a building where occupants are of different nationalities and most of our neighbors come from Turkey. Friendly as I am I’d hit up a conversation when I bump into one of them at the elevator or at the front yard. More often than not, Turkey holidays would surface in those small talks. It Read More
