    Frightening Halloween Glow with Watermelons!

    That time of year is upon us when the supermarkets fill their shelves with pumpkins and people all over the world go crazy to cut a scary face into one. Pumpkins however, are orange and they glow orange, and orange is a happy colour, a summer colour, and not a scary colour at all. Here is my solution to that Halloween problem.

    A four hour train ride takes you to Kanazawa, located approx. 300km northwest from Tokyo. This town is really pretty and watching the scenery of those well preserved architectures, I’m sure you will understand why this town has been called “Little Kyoto.”

    Come Down to Chinatown in Singapore

    In the lead up to the Lunar New Year, Chinatowns everywhere (Singapore included) are constantly packed with people at any time of the day. Though charming even in its busiest moments, Chinatown is best explored early in the morning when the city is only beginning to shake off yesterday's slumber.

    A Spring Sunday in Parque del Retiro

    The traditional way to spend spring afternoons in Madrid is to head out to Parque del Retiro on a Sunday and just relax. A picnic on the grass and a walk close to the lake; seeing the boats rowing in the pond, fortunetellers predicting the future, "alive statues", performances, mariachis and magic bubbles paint a pretty portrait of just a regular weekend afternoon in this place.

    To Russia with Love: A Place Where 3 Bridges Meet

    A place for dreaming. This is one of my favorite places in St Petersburg - a place where 3 bridges meet, in the heart of the historic city center. It is close to all the major tourist attractions such as the Church of the Savior on Blood, Field of Mars, and many others, two of St Petersburg’s most beautiful canals meet and three bridges, which cross them come together in one.
