Wine and dine in Lyon

France, Citytrip, and UNESCO
I've often been to the south of France - from the Ardèche region to the Alps to the French Riviera - and I knew Lyon mostly from the traffic jams on the Autoroute du Soleil - France's north-south artery between Paris and Lyon - on Black Saturday, when everyone's trying to get to the south. But Lyon has more to offer than those traffic jams, especially if you're into gastronomy (which, admittedly, I am not.)

Understanding San Francisco

California, USA, and Citytrip
While it's not as impressive as New York, not as famous as Los Angeles, etc., I would recommend it over any other US city I've been to so far! It is unique in many ways, it has a monotonous good weather you can rely on, a ton of those charming Victorian houses and a long list of attractions, from the Golden Gate Bridge to Alcatraz.

What happens in Vegas…

Nevada, USA, and Citytrip
Is Las Vegas, the biggest city in the Mojave Desert, every bit as wild as movies would have you believe? While I haven't exactly gone all Hangover, I'm pretty sure the answer is a surrounding yes. This is Sin City after all.

Living it up in Monaco

Côte d'Azur and Citytrip
In a previous post, I said I'd pick Nice if I had to choose a place to live in the French Riviera. Actually, I'd prefer Monaco even more, because that would mean I'd be wealthy beyond belief. Property prices are through the roof here, with the average real estate agency selling apartments anywhere in the range of 1 to 20 million euros.

Hiking Zürich's Üetliberg

Switzerland and Nature
I hadn't really made any plans yet when I was in Zürich for a few days, but the hotel was in such a nice location that I couldn't not go for a quick walk. I kept going for as long as the scenery was pretty and didn't realize I was hiking up Zürich's highest mountain, the Üetliberg. It ended up being a pretty good hike with spectacular views abound.

5 New York City highlights

New York, USA, Citytrip, and UNESCO
The city that never sleeps: for a tireless traveler as me, this sounds too promising to pass up. But where to even begin in a city that has so much to offer? My list was so long and we didn't even get to finish it. So here's a short list of things you must absolutely do or see.
Yosemite Valley is stunning

Yosemite Valley is stunning

California, USA, Nature, and UNESCO
California's Yosemite National Park, one of the first national parks, is magical with its enormous cliffs & domes, waterfalls & giant sequoia trees. As I marvel the beauty of this place, I can't help but wonder what it must've been like for the first people to arrive in the valley.
