Fantastic Foto Friday – Historic Taipei, Taiwan

Taipei has a turbulent history, with influences from China and Japan and it tells that story well, without hiding the dark spots in it! While you’ll learn a lot in Taipei’s museums, the historic buildings, like the memorial to Chiang Kai Shek, the founder and former president of the Republic of China, tell the story, too!

Fantastic Foto Friday: Pattaya Beach, Thailand

The (in)famous Pattaya, is the closest beach getaway from Bangkok. You’ll get all the sand, sun, warm waters and gorgeous sunsets you’d expect from a tropical beach, and all at a budget price. And while the beach in Pattaya itself can be so crowded with chairs that you can barely see it, Jomtien to the South has beautiful beach with fewer vendors, so you can just throw down your towel and stick your toes in the soft, white sand!

Fantastic Foto Friday: Singapore Aquarium

I love to scuba dive. But sometimes, a visit to the aquarium is the next-best thing. Especially, if it is as good as the SEA Aquarium on Sentosa Island, Singapore. From giant eels like in this pictures, to scary sharks and huge, gentle manta’s there is lots to see and something to learn, too. Despite having seen lots of sharks in the open sea, I only learned at the aquarium how to distinguish male and female sharks!
