Sunset Cliffs

This 2 mile long stretch of the San Diego coastline is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to, the right place to take a long, serene and relaxing walk. Its key characteristic is represented by the sheer cliffs which drop straight to the ocean below, creating a breath-taking atmosphere in which…

Shibuya

When thinking about how to describe this area I had no idea where to start from! Shibuya is one of the most well-known areas of Tokyo, as it’s extremely fashionable and young. The first time I visited the area was to visit the Meiji Jingu Shinto Shrine, the shrine is surrounded by a massive forest,…

Coronado Island

The magic of Coronado Island starts in the moment you set foot on the San Diego – Coronado Bridge over the Big bay which is considered by many an architectural marvel. Once you reach the other side, you find yourself in another world, a beautiful world. As in the case of La Jolla, we can…

Shinjuku

Shinjuku is a city inside the city! It developed originally as an area close to the capital, Edo, slowly engulfing the surrounding areas that included red light districts (you can distinguish them from the red neon light at the beginning of the street). It grew especially after the 1923 earthquake that devastated the city, as…

Monte Carlo

Monte Carlo is a very curious city (or country) in my opinion. It’s very hard to get a feel of the real monegasque lifestyle, because you mostly get to see tourists exploring the port or the Casino square, or sipping cocktails in bars on the port. But through the years I’ve learned that Monaco is…

Roquebrune

Roquebrune extends itself from Menton to Monaco (Monte Carlo), the town is mostly residential given there are many summer villas and houses that overlook either the bay of Menton or Monaco. Roquebrune became French in 1793, but was then taken back by the Grimaldi of Monaco, during the 1848 Italian Risorgimento it was freed and…

La Jolla

La Jolla, correctly pronounced ‘la hoya’ as it comes from the Mexican language, is often known as the jewel of San Diego thanks to the spectacular views it offers. The beach Surrounded on three sides by the sea and backed by the slopes of Mount Soledad, la Jolla beach is the destination of thousands of…

Roppongi

Roppongi is another extremely modern area of Tokyo, dedicated to arts, shopping, communication and nightlife. This was due to the settling in of many foreigners, which transformed the area into a western-style entertainment spot.  In the southern part of this quarter is located one of Tokyo’s landmarks: the Tokyo Tower. Opened in 1958 as a…

Seaport village

Located downtown San Diego right on the harbor adjacent to the embarcadero, you can find this beautiful little village which will make you fall in love. As you arrive, you will feel as if you have entered a time machine and traveled backwards in time 100 years. No matter which time of the day or…

Old Town

This is the place where it all started, where the Spanish settled back in the days and where you can re-live the atmosphere of an 1850s California. As you get to Old Town, it literally seems as if you were transported back in time as you find yourself surrounded by Mexican lore and historical sites,…

Ginza

  To describe Ginza I’d compare it to the Fifth Avenue in New York! If you walk down the central street (chuo-dori) you’ll probably understand what I mean; you will find the most notorious Japanese and international stores, in modern and colorful buildings entirely owned by brands. A very famous building here is the Shiseido…
