The joys of travel

The most misunderstood assumption people make, is that I adore travelling. Well, I do not. I enthusiastically, absolutely, positively and very radically hate it. O yes, I love to be in cities a bit all over the globe, I love meeting with people from a different culture. I just love discovering other landscapes, monuments, wildlife, …

Have a wireless holiday!

With the holiday season kicking in, I start dreaming about lonely beaches and deserted oceans shimmering under a lagoon-blue sky, listening to the happy chatter of a colourful Parrot. *deep sigh*.
