Turku, In Winter Or In Summer?

I really love this city. If somebody were to ask me where I would like to live when I have millions of sacks full of gold to buy a house abroad besides my current home in Moscow, I would blatantly say ‘Turku’! Turku (in Suomi) a.k.a Åbo (in Swedish) is the oldest city in the country. Before retaining its own name ‘Turku’, it was originally called Suomi (Finland) which later became the name for the whole country itself. The name Åbo was given by the Swedish as this area was part of their kingdom. What does Turku offer? As I mentioned before, Turku is the oldest town…

Angkor Wat Part 1

BASIC INFORMATION: All you need to know before visiting Angkor Wat Some people said that to visit Angkor Wat in a day was truly a blunder. I can’t agree with them more. But, as ordinary people with a bit of stubbornness, we kept to the previous plan of touring the Angkor Wat complex in a day.

If you're a foreigner living in Indonesia, or you're just simply a tourist, you might consider it as great hospitality while still in the ‘honeymoon phase’.

What To See in Sisowath Quay, Phnom Penh

After spending a night watching the Water Festival and sitting for too long on the bus, what we needed was to sleep like logs. Yet, our (actually, my) enthusiasm about exploring Phnom Penh successfully beat what we called our tiredness. Right after coming back to the hotel, with the help of a super map and guide book we ‘stole’ from the receptionist’s area, we made a list of places we’d like to visit around Sisowath Quay.

Water Festival in Phnom Penh

Life is an adventure, and MY life is that kind. Wherever I go, unexpected things always happen, whether good or bad, pleasant or annoying. The good thing is I always have something to write about. Maybe that’s God's way of helping me stay on my path: rambling about something unimportant in my blog, or my diary if I still had it. When we go to the hotel in Phnom Penh, I stretched for a few minutes, jumped on my bed to see how soft it was, and, of course, filled my tummy. The owner of the hotel proudly told us that we were lucky to come at…
