Because, sometimes, pictures do speak a thousand words, and I have a soft spot for people on bicycles.
I am still looking through the pictures of Verona. I’ve already selected around 70, but resizing them will take a while so I decided to make a separate post for the small town that I visited on my last day – Garda, on the shore of its namesake lake. It’s a peaceful, quiet village nestled between the mountains, where swans waddle around the shore of the lake and people hide from the rain under the […]
A futuristic city rising from a sea of sand. Ridiculous amount of shots of the Burj Khalifa, but that thing is so ridiculously enormous you can’t miss it, wherever you are. Also, I really like stingrays/manta rays/everything-rays. Added a ‘Travels’ category to the blog!

I am writing to you all from The Datai, a lovely resort in Langkawi. I haven’t posted in a while because I’ve had no time to research interesting art or to buy magazines (this is causing me great pain as everyone else has probably seen the F/W Prada Menswear ads in print except for me) so I was planning on waiting until I arrive back in Lisbon in September… but I thought a little update […]
