The world-famous Charles Bridge that crosses the Vltava river in Prague.
Beautiful town, really. This is the Old Town Square, as seen from the Astronomical Clock.
The famous Astronomical Clock in Prague, early on a Sunday morning : not too crowded, nice !
For the first time in many years, I flew on Saturday to a 3GPP meeting (just to get cheap ANA tickets) and as a result, I had some free time to visit the city. First shots from the subway, early Sunday morning. The escalators are sooo fast ! Being jet lagged, and being used to […]
Enough place to work but no will to do so, so killing time with my RX1 :)
On my way to München on NH207.
And one onigiri before boarding at Fukuoka Airport. Love those, I wish they were more universal (outside of Japan that is) !
Typical scenes from an Airport, here at 135mm/f2 in Narita.
Not one trip in San Francisco without having one of those !
I do enjoy eating in those, always reminds me of Seinfeld !
At the corner of O’Farrell and Mason, right next to the hotel, how convenient for 3GPP delegates ;-)
Wouldn’t it be more logical to separate the emergency button from the commonly used ones ?!
Actually cheaper than a taxi for a group of people !
Enough calories for a week !
Not too far from Cupertino, naturally ;-)
Delicious portobello mushroom burger with french fries :)
An omnipresent sight in US !
Proper mix of French and Vietnamese cuisine, yummy !
Somewhere in San Francisco…
In order of appearance and in decreasing order of price : Vietnamese, Thai and Indian Curry.
Night panorama of San Francisco’s skyline, with and without clouds. Cannot get tired of this view…
First dinner after landing in San Francisco so of course : burger + locally brewed beer :)
Impeccable service as always. I now avoid all airlines which have sacrificed service quality in the name of equal opportunities. If you’re stupid, it’s obvious that you can’t be an astronaut, so I don’t see why unfriendly & rude women should be allowed to be employed as stewardess.
Killing time in NRT before flying to SFO. The ANA lounge is the first lounge I have been where the staff guides you to the seat you want, asks you what you would like to drink and brings it to you, together with an oshibori ! Nice, very nice :)
This one is from… Barcelona. Don’t ask me why but someone thought it would be wise to recommend a Japanese restaurant, in SPAIN ?!?!
Killing time at the airport…
Most salary men I know like going to Fukuoka (or FUK if one was to refer to the airport code – no pun intended). The usual claim is that the local delicacies are worth the trip. But somehow, I have the feeling that they do not necessarily refer to food like motsunabe or tonkotsu ramen… […]
Fukuoka’s open air food stands (屋台, Yatai) are possibly the city’s best known symbol. Yatai can generally seat about seven or eight people and provide an atmospheric outdoor environment to enjoy various foods that are generally simple and filling. There are over 150 yatai scattered across Fukuoka but the best place to find them is […]
An interesting looking back alley in Fukuoka.
Cooked garlic at an izakaya in Fukuoka : delicious ! Looks nice too :)
