What’s your wish? I have lots of them. Mostly wishes for other people, but I wouldn’t mind a seaside cottage. My other wish is to keep exploring new countries, like Taiwan. I always buy a travel guide, because I expect to travel alone, although there’s usually someone in the crew who wants to join me.… read more »

It was my birthday last week. Yet another wonderful year has literally and figuratively flown by. A year in which I discovered new destinations, some of which I had often dreamt about. Cities you really should see at least once in your life. Cities that make you break into dance, shake your hips, smile and… read more »
