I finally got to travel back to my beloved Andalucía, although just for 8 nights- which is way too short. No matter how well you plan ahead and how many hours you will spend on the autovias del sur, there are just too many amazing things to discover. Heavy-heartedly we had to cross off our list cities like Granada (this was the toughest), Córdoba, Nerja, Jerez de la Frontera and so on; but it is midsummer and we wanted to spend some time at the beach after a disappointing “monsoon season” back home.

If one night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble, two weeks in Cape Town will make a weary man happier than Leo at this year’s Oscars.

Dear Tokyo

I have finally made it. It has taken me over a decade to pay a visit and the expectations are sky-high now. Of course your position is though, since I have been around the world like Puffy and Mase in their prime, and you are up against heavyweights like NYC, Rio, London, Sydney, Barcelona  and so on…time for some cherry blossoms and your A-Game.
