Last day in Ubud – Bali … instead of running around to temples or rice fields, I chose to walk and closely watch the people in town … behind Monkey Forest Road, life is more normal, quieter and deprived of the Western luxury of farang restaurants.

Today, my steps will wonder through the more gloomy side of Nicosia… It’s the Green Line, the fortified and militarized area that is under UN control and which divides Nicosia in two. Although tension is long gone in most of Cyprus, in this area you can still feel it in the air… even though you do not see fully equipped soldiers, but merely remains – bombed houses, walls with bullet holes, barricades, barbed wire… read more…

    Istanbul between Europe and Asia, between history and future.

    I should confess from the very beginning that I love history. I started to love history since I was a kid, when I spent so many hours and hours reading about heroes and warriors, defectors and fighters, about magnificent cities and brilliant kingdoms. But I always tried to imagine how they looked like (I guess […]
