- Burano – the colours, the solitude, and the tranquility calm me and inevitably bring a smile to this sometimes-hardened face.
- Torcello – during the day it is a day-tripper’s dream and a night it is calm oasis of nature sounds and the occasional lapping water along the canal sides.
- I am in love with Bergen. I can’t say anything more than it’s been some time since I’ve been to a place that is this inviting, the people this welcoming, and the food this outstanding.
- Located over 200 miles north of the Arctic Circle, Tromsø is an amazing, but small town, that invites all travelers with open arms and stunning views.
- Shanghai – the new, modern China that is probably more “western” than any other place I visited.

Shanghai is an amazing place, and is arguably the most modern of China’s cities, if not the most western, but when taken in to consideration with the rest of China and what it has to offer, it really shouldn’t be missed! Continue reading
Hangzhou/West Lake – a wonderful, relaxing, lake-side retreat to recharge and recenter before your next stop in the mad-packed land that is China.

Chengdu – pandas, not to mention a laid back city (for China) but also one of the fastest growing and inviting cities.
