    Outdoor & adventure in San Marino

    When I told my friends and family that I’d be heading to San Marino the past summer, they looked at me with a bit of doubt in their eyes. ‘So, what’s to see there?’ is a frequent question I got. Or worse, some people had not even heard of San Marino before and/or had no idea where it’s located. During my stay in San Marino I got plenty of time to explore, experience and soak up the outdoor and adventure in and around San Marino.   Before I will continue telling you about my adventures, I’ll start with some general information about San Marino, because few people know about it.…

    City-break Naples in pictures

    As I was making a back-up from my phone the other day I realized I never wrote much about my recent trip to Naples. And to be brutally honest, there isn’t much to write about. If I have to believe fellow bloggers, raw and dark cities are the new hip. No romance such as Paris or tons of modern history such as Berlin, but cities filled up with graffiti and all kinds of dirt everywhere, that’s supposed to be the new hip. When browsing through my pictures I realized I don’t even have proper pictures of the Naples. Because it was just plain ugly. There, I said it. Naples is ugly.…
