Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico
You can see the Tijuana arch from almost anywhere, and it's the landmark to head back to if you get lost. I thought I would see drunken rowdy Americans, and illegal street activities in broad daylight, but nothing came close even though the red...

Amesbury, Salisbury SP4 7DE, UK
We visited Stonehenge a couple of days ago, on the way back from Wales. It was a grey, rainy, cold and windy day and we still wanted to be there. We were only able to be at the site for about 2 minutes. The wind was extremely strong and the rain...
Pont des Arts, 75006 Paris, France
Strolling over the Pont des Arts, in spite of the tourists, and the cliché, bereted accordian player busquing for a Euro... even with the lovers buying locks to place on the fencing, and the nasal wail of the Bateaux Mouches loudspeakers floating...
Zapecherna St, Kyiv, Ukraine, 02000
It is so frustrating what is happening in Ukraine right now. I hope the country would be as strong as the Motherland Monument, standing tall, strong and resilient to what would become in the coming days, weeks or even months ahead.
