Escape Hunter My Escapes

My Escapes - Epic Stories of Travels Around the World

As a casual solo traveler, I explore the World driven by passion and curiosity, a thirst for culture and adventure, a need for freedom and love for diversity.
Jump on board, join me virtually!

My escape trips (here below) are thorough walkaround guides, deep explorations and unbiased reviews "from inside".
Lots of photos and deep details, ruminations - my travel stories are mostly thick, detailed analyses.

As a solo indie traveler - I travel slowly to soak up the atmosphere.
I ruminate and contemplate, dissect and analyze - as an urban explorer, culture vulture, art lover... and more!

My aim is to discover and squeeze more out of my trips than the average traveler, because there's a lot more to travel than most would think!

Costa Blanca Summer Heat

Costa Blanca trip

Hankering for Spain's sunny beaches with bustling (and busty!) beach life, I set off for the explosive exotic Costa Blanca.
I pinned the long time-eyed legendary Alicante and Benidorm.

Another Lovely Trip to Portugal!

Portugal trip

6 years later I returned to Portugal to take an even deeper dip, to explore more - this time, my target was the mainland.
This finally ended up one of the most beautiful trips ever!

I hope this escape can inspire you in planning your trip to Portugal.

Stop-over Day in Istanbul...

Istanbul stop-over

A very short return to Istanbul: after an 11 hour-long non-stop flight from Singapore, I stayed in the heart of Istanbul's historic district again.

This time I was able to visit the revered Grand Bazaar, find out more about Turkish sweets, taste local beer...

Return to "Lion City"

Singapore again

Singapore wasn't enough once, I had to check it out again, but eventually my second trip wasn't enough to satisfy my hunger for it.

This was a slightly shorter trip than the previous one, but yet another wonderful- and, not at all less interesting escape!

My First Malaysian Escape

Malaysian escape

Diverse, prosperous, colourful, multi-ethnic, totally exotic Malaysia...

The official slogan says "Malaysia Truly Asia" - and so it is! Malaysia is a smaller Asia within itself!
I visited Kuala Lumpur, the Batu Caves in Selangor and Putrajaya!

Bustling, Colourful Singapore

Singapore trip

So, I eventually escaped to one of my dream destinations - Singapore!

I always wanted to visit this mini country, ever since I was a very young teenager. Well, I made it and behold: reality stunned me and exceeded my dreams, even!

Short Stay in Istanbul

First Istanbul trip

My first ever visit to Istanbul was a rather short, but an enjoyable one. I finally got to see why so many people have such a deep admiration for the ancient city...

It was a short escape, but I got to see most of the main attractions.

Cold Helsinki Business Trip

Port at dusk

The Finnish capital was cold indeed, but far more diverse architecturally and with a lot more shops and good places to eat than I previously imagined!

Helsinki is more beautiful than they say... But it's awfully expensive!

Back to Barcelona!

Back to Barcelona!

I just couldn't get enough of that fabulous sprawling art-filled city!
As soon as I finished my explorations on Madeira, I headed back for more Barcelona. Checked out a few more attractions, but not even my second time was enough to satisfy me entirely!

Short Stop-over in Lisbon

Lisbon short stop-over

I had roughly 3 hours to check out central Lisbon and take a few photos and I didn't want to waste my precious time.
This was the first time I ever set foot in the city of Lisbon.

Escape to Lush Green Madeira

Madeira trip

I dropped-in to the foggy green Madeira Islands almost unprepared, following my first Barcelona escape... It was more of an impulse-driven trip.

Little did I know how beautiful this lush green exotic Portuguese island is. I strongly believe that Madeira too deserves more spotlight!

Flight Connection in Lisbon

Portela Airport flight connection

I was flying from Barcelona to Funchal, Madeira. For my connecting flight I had to stop over in Lisbon.

Portela Airport was terribly disorganized.

Valencia, Spain - A Delicacy for Fans of Architecture!

Central Valencia

This is one of Europe's most beautiful cities and it's a shame that it doesn't get the deserved exposure!

Delicate architecture, efervescent Valencian atmosphere and colourful diversity surrounded me everywhere. I could barely put my camera down and I could explore from morning 'til late at night!
Ay, caramba!

Exploring Gaudí's Sprawling Surreal Barcelona

Plaza d'Espanya in Barcelona

For my first ever solo travel escape, I picked Barcelona. And I was thrilled by what I had found there. The colourful, dynamical, art-filled Catalonian city has captured my heart!

Here's what I found back then in 2008: experiences, beautiful places not to miss - with photos included! Enjoy!

Floating Worlds - Venice, Murano, Burano...

Burano's colourful architecture

Legendary Venice and its outlaying Murano, Burano and Torcello "sister islands" are picturesque little worlds of their own.

There's vastly more to discover than you can see in travel reviews, magazines, TV presentations. Join me virtually to see what I discovered!
