Greek Holiday: Boat Trip to Skopelos Island

Travel Period: June 2017

Back in the summer of 2017, Dutchman and I holidayed in Skiathos which is part of the Sporades group of islands in the Greek Aegean Sea. We mostly spent our holiday in Skiathos but also did little trips to the nearby islands.

One of the trips we did is a boat excursion to Skopelos and Alonissos Islands.

One Night in Rome

Travel Period: December 2018

What would you do if you have one night to spend in Rome?

Bernini's Barcaccia fountain on Piazza di Spagna.

Hmm, it would be difficult to choose because there are so many great places to see in the city...

I was in Rome for work and was planning to have dinner in the nearby suburb or at the hotel I was staying in. However, the hotel's restaurant was exclusively booked for an event. I also learned that they have a shuttle bus that goes to the city center which includes a re-tour ticket of the metro. Things seemed to have fallen into its place for me that night. So I bought the shuttle ride and in half an hour I was on the way to the ancient city.

Playing Tourist in Amsterdam

About the same time last year (1st week of January 2019), I went to Amsterdam to see an old colleague. We were colleagues at a research slash consulting firm 13 years ago. Goodness, I feel old having to mention ex-colleagues from double-digit years. She moved back to Sweden when her contract ended and I was even at her apartment during her going away party.

She messaged me on where else, Linkedin, that she would fancy a catch up in Amsterdam as she is visiting for a work-related trip. I then took the opportunity to stay longer in the city and played tourist. Of course, as part of the package, I took pictures along the way.
