The “Sleepless Town” (眠らない街)

“Tokyo’s hidden erotic wonderland is open for business.” – National Geographic

When I arrived first time at the Shinjuku Station in Tokyo, I was lost. 3.64 million passengers pass through the world’s busiest transport hub each day, more than the population of Toronto! Once you find your way out (from over 200 exits), you may head to the famous red light district of Tokyo, Kabukichō – the “Sleepless Town”.

Your first clue that you are in the area is when you are seeing well dressed young Japanese men with very long hair. You will find them at the main entrances to the Kabukichō red light district, every day and night.

A chaotic, but peaceful Labour Day protest against the newly announced vaccine passports in Ontario took over the Queens Quay W. in Toronto. Being at the right time, in the right place with the right tool – the inconspicuous  Ricoh GR III camera – I was ready to document the protest.

 Find Your Own Paradise

Once you don’t have a home can be liberated. Your home is the world! For almost one year I travelled as a digital nomad from one place to another. While in Asia, Bangkok is a good hub to be and plan your trips in Thailand and in the neighbouring countries.

After spending some time in crazy Bangkok, I moved to a remote place on the East side of the Koh Chang Island in Thailand, Baan Talay Thai.

What a city, Vienna! It is one of the most tranquil and civilized cities in the world.

Get a glimpse of the imperial grandeur by visiting the Belvedere, Schönbrunn and Hofburg palaces, or just walk through the old city centre starting from the Stephansplatz. The sound of music will follow you: Mozart, Beethoven, Strauss, Liszt, Brahms and many others.

Take a break in one of the beautiful coffee shops, savour Viennese coffee and taste the fresh baked bread. So good! For dinner try the traditional schnitzel with lots of beer.

Going off the beaten path, you will discover intriguing places that are not a tourist destination. In my trip to Nepal, I found this small village in the Chitwan National Park. Most of the houses are made from mud and straw, and the farmers are still ploughing their rice fields with oxen and humpback cows.

The people were curios, same as I was. So it wasn’t difficult to take pictures. Especially the children were very happy!
