Welcome to my travels. On this site you'll find recent trips and some very old trips. You'll note that for some trips I wrote very detailed reports (at least in the beginning), for others, I didn't even take notes of where I was on what dates. Nevertheless, I've done my best to document, to the extent I can, all of my major trips.



Day 4 - Road Trip

Otavalo, Ecuador


The equator, the market at Otavalo, Parque Condor

Day 6 -- More St. Petersburg

Saint Petersburg, Russia


On our own, we walked around the city, visited the Church of the Spilt Blood, saw AMAZING art at the Museum of Russian Art, and bought some of our own. Ended with a stop of that delectable art nouveau Eleseyev Emporium.

Day 4 -- Helsinki the Second Time

Helsinki, Finland


Bank in Helsinki, this time with all day to explore. Really loved this city. Hit up walked everywhere, from the central market to the Museum of Contemporary Art to Finlandia Hall. Found serenity in The Rock Church and the Kampii Chapel of Silence.

Day 3 - Stockholm

Stockholm, Sweden


Overnight Ferry to Stockholm. Hit up the modern art museum, the Noble museum, the old town, and some of the more modern parts. Tried to see Skansen but ran out of time.

Day 2 -- Tallinn

Tallinn, Estonia


Hopped on the Ferry for the short trip to Tallinn, where we mostly wandered around the Old Town. Some interesting sights; very medieval as expected. Surprisingly, despite how touristy it was, there were some nice artists shops and galleries, although with a few good street musicians.

Day 1 - Helsinki the First Time

Helsinki, Finland


Arrival in Helsinki in the late afternoon. Some wandering around near the Ferry docks. Had a nice fish dinner at Restaurant Meri Makasiini. Since it was Sunday, very little was open.

Visit Las Terrazas to learn about the environmental protection in this biosphere reserve. Sip a cup of coffee at Cafe de Maria. Visit three artists studios (Henry, Ariel, Lester). Lunch at Casa del Campesino. Continue the trip to the airport to board our flight home.

Day 5 - Vinales

Vinales, Cuba


Drive to the Viñales valley. Its landscape is interspersed with dramatic rocky outcrops. Lunch at Finca Agroecologica El Paraiso (farm-to-table). Amazing. Check in at casas particulares (private homes). Walk into Vinales and then horseback riding to a tobacco plantation. Dinner at family style. Evening music and dancing.
