Long time, Hawaii

Wow, we haven’t written for quite some time, looks like our last post was from Japan, more than 6 months ago…
It’s not that we didn’t travel or do anything interesting, but were probably too lazy (or got too adjusted to the Ozzy lifestyle :)).
Anyway, we’re in Hawaii now (Maui) and here are some highlights from our whereabouts on the islands: Continue Reading…

A Fascinating Day in Kyoto, Japan

What a warm welcome to Japan – a truly beautiful and intriguing place with a lot of different cultural aspects and ancient history & apparently it is the best time of year to visit – Autumn, when all the leaves are changing their colors to red and the weather is not too cold yet. Continue Reading…

Shanghai – The Pearl Of Asia

Moving one step closer to our new home at Sydney we stopped in Shanghai for 3 days – mixing business & pleasure.
We arrived at late evening and went for an “hot pot” dinner – that means that you get a hot soup of your choice and kind of like in fondue – you just trough inside meat, fish and/or seafood (whatever you choose to) and cook it inside as much as you want to. Nice experience and warmly recommended but the only thing is that it was ONLY in Chinese so lucky for us we had Phillip or else we would of got lost in translation… Continue Reading…

The Wetland of Hong Kong

Amsterdam – The Classic Finishing Note

There are few places in the world that you fall in love with in just few minutes – for us Amsterdam is definitely one of them!

Right as we went out of the airport we had a warm welcome from the sun, the beautiful sunflowers and the pool at the entrance. Then, while we were riding the taxi to our hotel we discovered how beautiful and unique the city is – with its great water canals, old architecture, colorful streets, tons of bicycles wondering around and a generally happy atmosphere.

Finland – The (cold) Land of Many Lakes

Why did nobody tell us that the end of August also means the end of summer in Finland? well, combine the jet-leg we had coming from the US with the surprising cold and rain and add the fact that most of the places were already closed at mid Aug. – and you get some first few disappointing days in Finland, but in spite of it we were able to enjoy some of the things Finland has to offer: Continue Reading…
