Things to do in Nepal: visit the sadhu at Pashupatinath Hindu temple

If you wanted to say what is there to be seen in Kathmandu, only a full book would be enough. This is why I’d say let’s take a few steps outside the city as well and visit the outside-the-capital Nepal. And there are a lot of fabulous places – either if we talk about the Monkey Temple from above Kathmandu or the fascinating Buddhist temples of Boudhanath or the Hindu ones from Pashupatinath… read more…

Sights of Nepal: a sadhu in Kathmandu

Everest, Sherpa people, the beautiful crazy people that wrestle the eight-thousand-ers, victories and tragedies, mountains dressed in eternal snow and beyond, the mysterious Tibet…What can be more to visit in Nepal ? What the hell can one do there if he is not a climber to go and conquer the eight-thousand-ers? I also thought that Nepal meant only Himalaya before I started reading more about this fascinating nation. And only then have I found out that it is an extremely diverse and interesting country that is really worth visiting also by those who have no abilities to climb the eight-thousand-ers. Therefore I jumped on one plane’s wing and off I went to the mysterious kingdom, to Kathmandu… read more…

Lvov… almost live !

28 August 2012 live report, Ukraine 3 comments

Ukrainean girl

Usually, I am not doing live blogging. I tried to do it while visiting Georgia in 2010, but I realized I lose too much time in front of the computer rather than discovering the place I am visiting. However, I discovered lots of readers where interested in what I am doing “right now”, so I decided to make a compromise when I am traveling… So, I decided to have these type of posts – “almost live”, a kind of photo-report of what I saw and did in the last few days. Right now, I am in Lvov (Lviv, Lwow, Lemberg), Ukraine, so, let me show you this wonderful city !

A Luxury Oasis – Hotel Anantara Dhigu in the Maldives

Maldives resort: Hotel Anantara

There are worse looking places even in the Maldives, do not think that pure luxury is found everywhere, however today I will try to dream with you together about luxuriant places, so we shall visit the Anantara hotel on an island from the Maldives. read more…

Classic Japan between Nara and Kyoto. Episode 2 – Kyoto

Traditional wedding in Kyoto

A couple of days later, again on a train ride, this time, destination Kyoto. Expectations are set higher, as Kyoto is described as the quintessence of classic Japan. Furthermore, if Nara has only 8 sites on the UNESCO list of World Heritage, Kyoto owns more than double – inside the city there are no less than 17 UNESCO sites (13 Buddhist temples, 3 Shinto sanctuaries and one castle). Just like in Nara, when arriving in the train station the area has nothing to do with classicism… the train station in Kyoto is a glass and steel monster, looking like a futuristic Cathedral, with an observation point at the 15th floor…But let’s not anticipate. read more…

    Mumbai Escape at Ramada Powai Hotel

    Mumbai is one of the most interesting cities of the billion+ nation of India. It does not have the imperial history of Delhi, it does not have the princely elegance of Jaipur or Udaipur, it does not have the holly spirit of Varanasi and you cannot find any monument which can rival Taj Mahal of […]
