Comment now »

I started posting about Kuala Lumpur travel tips few weeks ago. I’ve been now in Kuala Lumpur for few weeks and have settled in quite nicely. As my stay is quite long, I decided I needed more than what a hotel can offer and ended up calling my KL home an excutive suite in one of the many brand new highrises within a very short walking distance from the extravagant KLCC. I believe renting a modern furnished apartment is without doubt the way to go whenever one’s stay exceeds one week in a cosmopolitan city. I am extremely pleased with my new place and appreciate the pleasure of settling down for a while after having been on the road for so long. I have great amount of comfort and all the amenities I would enjoy in Vancouver or Toronto including high speed internet, cable TV, large LCD screen, and the luxury of having all I need within a short walking distance.

Just returned from a fabulous diving trip in Bali. In addition to being a true exotic destination, Bali offers great diving with five star certified Paddi operators, and various diving sites each with its own flavor, and rich marine life.

Bali lies on the Indian Ocean in South East Asia northwest of Australia. Diving can be enjoyed all year round thanks to its tropical climate and the usual 25-30 celsius degrees water temperature.

Italian Opera Take 2: Verona Arena

Posted on August 19th, 2006 filed in Travelogues

While La Scala is the ultimate connoisseur italian indoor opera venue, Verona Arena is the must-experience-open-air venue for all including those non opera fans. It is not only listed on every touristic guide of Verona but also ranks high on almost every must-do list in Italy. It is now accepted that if you want to attend to one opera in your life, then you must do it at the Verona Arena.

The Arena is a roman amphitheater in Verona, an ancient city located one hour west of Venice and famous for its being the stage of Shakespeare’s ‘Romeo and Juliette’ (More on that in a later post). The arena is almost 2000 years old and for centuries has been the mecca for lavish games and art productions.

Italy Trip Report : Lake Como

Posted on August 3rd, 2006 filed in Travelogues

Lake Como, the must see destination for everyone visiting Italy, is a charming, picturesque, and romantic glacial lake nestled in the Italian Alps in close proximity to the Swiss border.

Lake Como is shaped like the greek letter lambda (reverse Y). Its three branches (Como Branch, Letto Branch, and Upper Lake) can be reached via the efficient (yet very expensive) ferry service operating around the clock from early morning till shortly after midnight. The main destinations on lake Como include Como, Bellagio, Menaggio, and Tremezzo.

Travelogue: A Chicago Tour with a Twist

I’ve been to Chicago many times and I am quite fond of the city, its downtown, night scene, shopping experience, pizza joints, and the Sears Tower. And, as with all that is familiar, my Chicago trips, while very rich, lack as they no more have the novelty factor, the feeling you have when you first visit a place for the first time. Try to recall the first time you visited the Niagara Falls and compare that with the subsequent visits. Sure it is comforting to know a place very well but it takes an ingredient of novelty for that essential je-ne-sais-quoi to make a travel experience unforgettable.
