Arriving in magical Oman, in the Middle East, you are confronted with beautiful blue skies, wonderful warm air, the constant aroma of burning frankincense, and the turquoise waters of the Arabian Gulf. It truly is Arabia, in all its relatively untouched by tourism, glory.

Movenpick, Marrakech, Morocco

I don’t have a bucket list (and shouldn’t it be wish list anyways, ‘bucket’ implies something nasty lurking deep within it), but if I did then Morocco, or more specifically Marrakech, would be floating somewhere near the top.

Travels through Japan

I already knew I was going to like Japan before I went.

I read, listened to and watched works both originating from and influenced by the country and local culture, and the technological great leaps forward always fascinated.
