Travelling in Mexico: Part 2

Our next stop was the beautiful city of San Cristobal de las Casas in the state of Chiapas in the south of Mexico. The city itself is very interesting – both culturally and architecturally –  and well worth exploring on foot; however we only stayed here as a base to travel and visit a few natural attractions.

Hong Kong: Afternoon tea at LGB

There’re many places in Hong Kong serving afternoon tea but they usually have long queues and the waiting time can be very long.

Singapore zoo

I’ve had the opportunity to visit various zoos around the world but none comes close to the quality, greenery and spaciousness of Singapore Zoo. Even before arriving at the zoo, on the bus ride from the city, it feels like entering a completely natural area with massive trees, a lake and plants of all shapes and shades of green.

We finally decided to visit Singapore again after our first visit 5 years ago. I think the first time we didn’t enjoy it as much because it was right after we moved to Hong Kong and everything seemed new, different, overwhelming and very hot! This time around we  wanted to visit some of the popular areas but also some places off the beaten path.  Read More


Bologna is a nice place to spend a few nights away from the swarms of tourists visiting the most popular places in Italy – Roma, Venice, Florence, etc – while still getting to enjoy the great things Italy has to offer –  the food, the architecture, gelato, etc – . This was my second time visiting Bologna although this time I was there on business.  Read More
