Free! "Sights & Attractions" in Yokosuka, Japan
Mikasa Park is located near Naval Base Yokosuka in Yokosuka, Japan. It is a worthwhile attraction if you have time to spend observing Japan's military history or just want to stroll through the park. I decided to peruse through the area during a hot day waiting for a restaurant to open. The park hosts the decommissioned Battleship Mikasa, which was a pre-dreadnought battleship built by the Imp…

Cheap "Sights & Attractions" in Lviv, Ukraine
Ivan Pidkova Square is located right behind Taras Shevchenko monument in Liberty Square in Galician District of Lviv. The square is between Theater Street and Liberty Avenue. It was called Holy Spirit Square before since it is located at the place of the former Holy Spirit Hospital that existed here until 1780. The square got its present name in 1946 in honor of Ivan Pidkova, a Ukrainian Cossack…

Cheap "Hotels & Accommodations" in Georgetown, Malaysia
I was a bit skeptical when I booked this hotel because despite its very good reviews (8+), there were comments saying the aircon doesn't work and the bathroom has damp smell. I gambled with my luck because of its location, and was pleasantly surprised with what I got. Pros: - Spacious room. Leave 2 suitcases on the floor and still have room to walk about. Comes with a working desk and chair. …

Expensive "Restaurants, Cafes & Food" in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia
Mongolia loves its Korean food - its the spicy Kimchee they especially enjoy, apparently - and you can find plenty of Korean eateries on the streets of Ulaanbaatar. However, in among all these, tucked away on an upper storey of a building that appears to be a supermarket and no more, is a North Korean restaurant. Yes, that’s right, a North Korean restaurant. And yes, you did read the title of…

Average priced "Sights & Attractions" in Drumnadrochit, Scotland, UK
I took a Jacobite cruise from The Loch Ness Clansman Hotel to The Urquhart Castle site. I wrote in my journal that it wasn't worth the money but that wasn't because of the castle itself. The problem with going by boat is that they only give you just barely enough time at the actual site. I felt a bit rushed. But then again, I'm probably just slow. And not just mentally. The castle can, of course, …

Free! "Sights & Attractions" in London, England, UK
I have visited Kingsland Road so many times, but never ventured east of it along Shacklewell Lane until today. This time, the bus from Newington Green, a route we had not used previously, deposited us outside the UK Turkish Islamic Trust, a mosque on Shacklewell Lane. This mosque is housed in a former synagogue, the ‘Stoke Newington Synagogue’, which despite its name is closer to Dalston th…

Very cheap "Sights & Attractions" in Delft, Netherlands
Somehow there is so many good places to visit in Delft within walking range of Delft Station. This was the start of a long wonderful day for this old man, so I took a bus from Delft Station. Admission was only four euros ($5 USD) and the gardens are beautiful. Not far into the garden was the very nice Thuja tree. (I have different Thujas planted in formation at my homestead. I also have planted …

Expensive "Restaurants, Cafes & Food" in Schiedam, Netherlands
As I have written in the main part of the blog that this is hopefully attached to, I had somehow ended up in the delightful little town of Schiedam when I thought I could get a train direct to my final destination of Leiden from the ferryport but apparently not so. We were transported to the train station here but planxty had nothing to do and all day to do it and so I took off round a town I ha…

Expensive "Hotels & Accommodations" in San Luis Obispo, California, USA
San Luis Obispo lies roughly midway between Los Angeles and San Francisco on California’s rugged and majestic central coast. Growing up in California I’d driven by The Madonna Inn more times than I can count. My parents loved to grab a bite in their coffee shop or bakery and grab a delicious treat on our vacations to Los Angeles. I finally fulfilled a lifelong wish and stopped for the night th…
