An Unforgettable Trip to the City of Incas
Machu Picchu — it’s mind-blowing, brain-bending and format-forgetting. It’s a trip you’ll never forget, and quite simply should be at the top of everybody’s must-see list. Everyone should get there. I can assure you you’ll never have a dull moment, so why not take an extended vacation from work and just go? You won’t regret it!
The Antarctica Adventure
This book is the story of one of the most interesting trips of my life. It’s an adventure peppered with amusing incidents, fascinating historical and geographical facts and a few hints for any intrepid travelers thinking of following in our footsteps. So fasten your seatbelts, treat your ears to, say, some Dire Straits, and enjoy the ride!
Places I’ve been to and planning to be there
A personal list of what I consider the most unique places on the planet (and beyond) made up of both those I’ve already seen, and those which I’ve heard about and hope to one day see for myself.

Btw, good quality graffiti done in good taste – is it an exposition or installation or hooliganism? The latter I cross out since […]
