Glorious Derbyshire countryside part 1

Buxton nature walks, exquisite Opera house and Buxton Carnival

In the beginning of July, I sent my son off to England to refine his football skills at a development summer camp.
As a parent, I wanted to stay within hailing distance, but also yearned for a slice of idyllic English countryside. So, I decided to find my own little haven in Buxton in the Peak District.
Buxton, nestled in Derbyshire County, is a charming town steeped in Roman history and serves up quite a scenic feast with its historic buildings and stunning landscapes.

A taste of India part 1

Delhi, Kochi, waterfalls and monkeys in Munnar Hill Station

In October, after work was done, I extended a business trip to India to spend a few days travelling in Munnar, Kerala. I did not have much time, so I hired a local driver, which turned out to be a wise decision because I managed to see so much in practically three days, and I did so in the comfort of an air-conditioned car while it was 33°C outside.
I definitely want to return to India to experience more of this beautiful, unique country rich in history and wildlife.

Road trip in Greece during COVID times - Part 1

In November 2020, after eight months of the prolonged solitary lifestyle that coronavirus imposed on me and the rest of the world, I needed a break. Greece was the only “green” country we were allowed to fly to, so together with my friend Hadas, we conceived a ten-day road trip to mainland Greece, “Thelma and Louise” style, only without the bad ending. Beach season was over, so we aimed for the mainland. Beyond this, we did not have a set itinerary or any reservations. We decided to play it by ear.
