    The Old Harbour - take a couple of hours for strolling along the shabby docks and ships. 

  • Sightseeing | New Zealand > Franz Josef Glacier
    Updated at May 22,2013

    After we finished with Nelson Lakes, we continued south and suffered a few days of heavy downpours while passing through some forgettable towns along the west coast. We ended up in Westland National Park, home to the popular Franz Joesf & Fox Glaciers. The glaciers, going down all the way from the slopes of Mt. Cook (& its neighboring peaks) area to the coastline are remarkable and worthy of your time. There are several options to explore the area, including heli-skiing and heli-hiking. If you are a backpacker (like me) with little cash in his pocket, the cheaper option would be to explore the lower regions of the glaciers. While it may not be as clean & pristine as the upper edges of the glaciers, the views from the mid-bottom area are still beautiful and the whole experience is quite impressive. You can go with the commercial tour guides that are located in the villages next to the glaciers. They will take care of everything you need so you don't need to have any ice/glaciers skills at all - but as i said, these are commercial tour operators and if you dream of a intimate adventure in the glaciers by yourself - forget it. The alternatives are either going up by helicopter (expensive!) or going to explore the glaciers by yourself independently, provided that you are experienced enough with glaciers or mountaineering  and equipped with crampons, ice axes etc.

    A real pleasure to stroll in midday or the afternoon hours along the central lanes of Plon. I can promise you that all locals are still in their Sclafstunde...

  • Sightseeing | Germany > Lubeck > Altstadt
    Updated at May 22,2013

    Make the walk from the Lubeck Train Station to the Altstadt - on foot. You won't regret it - especially during the late evening hours - when the Old Town is lit by the last sun rays and colored with magic orange color on its  wonderful skyline of castles, towers and walls. Of special interest - is the entrance to the Altstadt !

  • Sightseeing | Thailand > Ko Phi Phi Don
    Updated at Jun 13,2013

    Viewpoint - A must!  40 mins walk from the cabana. After a long climb of many stairs we reached the Phi Phi view point. Very beautiful and  Worth the climb. My daugther (3.5) managed to get to the lower view point. My son (5) managed to get to the upper view point. Anyway, worth the time and the 20 Baht per adult fee. The top picture is from viewpoint one, the bottom from viewpoint two.
