Visiting Helsinki in Summer – Style, Seafood and Salmiakki

Posted on December 3rd, by Peter Parkorr in Finland, Roaming Resources, Uncategorized. 4 comments
When you think of travelling to Finland you probably imagine snow, huskies, seeing the Northern Lights, swimming in ice pools and other winter fun. But I’ve been to Finland in summer twice now and found it’s a great time to visit. Tips for visiting Helsinki in Summer Last time I went on a 2000km road trip in Finland and really loved seeing other parts of the country, before spending a few days in the capital.…

The Best of Graz, Austria’s Second City

Posted on October 17th, by Peter Parkorr in Austria, Roaming Resources. 20 comments
In early August this year, I visited the Austrian city of Graz for the first time. I was there to check out the performance festival La Strada for the MustLoveFestivals project. Graz is Austria’s second city, but like me before I went, you may have absolutely no impression of it. In fact, I’d barely heard of it.

They call it ‘the city that grew up around a palace’, but technically it’s not even a city. It did hold city-status once, during an overnight stay from Napoleon – but he promptly retracted it on his departure.…

Variety Is The Spice Of Life: Tong Tong Fair 2014, The Hague

Posted on July 11th, by Peter Parkorr in Asia, Netherlands, Roaming Resources. 4 comments
Ah Asia! As diverse as a colour wheel. As exciting as free fall. Adored by travellers from all over the world. Ancient explorers risked their lives to get there, for every reason under the sun, from trading spices to… *gulp* plunder and slavery. If you haven’t been to Asia yet, you have to go. Anyone who argues with that statement almost certainly hasn’t been.…
