Looking through your old Instagram photos always brings back memories, such as why did I post that picture of a German folk legend pooping gold coins? And as some of you might have noticed, best way to keep track of my travels is on Instagram, which I tend to update almost daily if I have seen something worth a picture, or if we’ve just built a sick gingerbread house. So here are my favorite Instagram pictures from 2014 in no particular order; the selection process has been very scientific based on number of likes, artistic merit and awesomeness.   #1  Castle Combe Castlecombe, the 2nd best village in England, at least according to The Times. A photo posted by Jarmo (@thearcticnomad) on Jan 20, 2014 at 12:04am PST We started the year by living a few months in a cottage in Malmesbury, a small village in the Cotswolds.

Our Canadian adventure had brought us over to Thunder Bay; where we had just stuffed ourselves with Finnish pancakes in anticipation of our next endeavor. It seemed apt that our boat was called Frodo, a small, but sea-worthy sailing boat. We were about to embark on a quest on the world’s biggest fresh water lake, Lake Superior.

Paradise beaches of El Nido – Postcard

Posted by on July 12th, 2013 in Asia, Destinations, Feature, Philippines, Postcards | 6 comments

Islands and beaches of El Nido are about as close to a paradise you can find on this planet. Little havens of tranquility hidden between the towering rocks sheltering them from the wind. Crystal clear waters full of colourful fish and life. All you need is a cold beer or a coconut.

Ostend and the Sea

I looked at the yachts and I looked at the sea, I felt like I should’ve just stepped out of a boat, not a train. I knew Ostend was a coastal city, but I hadn’t realized how much of coastal city it really was. Even the train station was surrounded from two sides by the sea and the harbour.
