100 places to visit before you die.

Hi all!

As many of you know, I do quite a lot of traveling. So much so I have to be real careful not to go over the 183 days abroad in a year to forfeit my onshore tax status!

And since it’s quite well known I’m a bit of a Marco Polo by a lot of the people I tend to meet on my extended business trips, often one of the first things they ask me is where I’ve been lately.

So I decided to put together a list of all the really interesting places I’ve been lucky enough to visit around the world.

Once completed however, my first draft list seemed a little… underwhelming somehow, and also totaled some odd number like 57 or 73 – I can’t recall now. So I decided to add more places to it – more essential sights to be seen sooner or later, which handily brought the list total to the nice round number of 100!

So here’s that list – The Top-100 Must-See Places in the World, as compiled by me. I hope you like it, and that you’ll be able to visit as many of the places on it as possible!

Bon voyage folks!

#101 – Waking up in a tent on Jamaica’s Blue Mountain Peak 5 minutes before sunrise with hot local coffee in a thermos!

Four tickets to Aogashima. Part 2. Hachijo-jima.

A summary of Episode One: 7 AM. Flight from Tokyo (Haneda) to Hachijo-jima, then a tight connection – a helicopter flight to Aogashima, a day there on the run – climbing over, looking at and taking pictures of every nook and cranny. Beautiful! The next morning, I had a vague sense of déjà-vu: waking up […]

Four tickets to Aogashima.

One day, as I was browsing the Internet, I came across a story about a very unusual place in Japan – it is not easily accessible, beautiful and fairly interesting at the same time. That’s the island of Aogashima several hundred kilometers south of Tokyo, on the boundary between the Philippine Sea and the Pacific […]

“Everybody be cool, this is a robbery.”

Startups – affairs that are risky and slow to build up momentum. They call for big cash, a knack for seeing into the future, and a nose for where the big returns on investment are. They take years to really get going; only one in twenty (or even more) doesn’t die a premature death. Traditionally, venture […]

Cool your boots, Japan.

Tired after a seemingly endless journey, the long-distance traveler normally resorts to some kind of body of water first in his/her attempt at winding down, chilling out a bit, and returning from zombie state to kinda normal state. Usually a shower, sometimes a bath – sometimes even a banya and its attendant cold pool! But […]

Singapore through the eyes of a first-timer.

Hi all! D.Z. – this is one of most distinguished and respected KLers, with us since last century (taking a brief creative break in the mid-2000s). D.Z. has also been my fellow traveler a d.z.illion times to… oh, practically everywhere on this planet – but surprisingly not to Singapore. He always takes with him a trusty […]

INTERNET-INTERPOL-2015.

I first used the term ‘Internet-INTERPOL’ somewhere around the start of the 2000s. The first time I got round to writing it down was in 2003. This year – 2015 – some 12 years later, finally, what I’ve been talking about, pushing for, advocating, promoting all these years is here: An INTERPOL division dedicated exclusively […]
