“To awaken quite alone in a strange town is one of the pleasantest sensations in the world. You are surrounded by adventure.

A Halloween Story

“I would like, if I may, to take you on a strange journey.”

Toronto’s most wicked street party takes place every year on Halloween night, October 31st. Hundreds of Halloween-dressed revelers converge at the Village (Church & Wellesley): scary zombies, clowns, trumps, witches, skeletons and other bloody creatures being treated by sexy nurses – plus a mixture of funny penguins, high tech robots, big head babies and even a pair of huge dinosaurs.

October 1st is the World Sake Day and we are celebrating!

Made from fermented rice, sake is the national beverage of Japan. Sake can be served at the room temperature, hot or cold – depending on the type of sake. With 18% – 20% alcohol, sake is not a strong drink. Easy to drink, but so easy to get drunk!

Can you see Lisbon in one day?

It depends of your travel style and if you travel alone or in a group. My travel philosophy consists in not relying entirely on maps, but rather getting lost  – and using a combination of transportation vehicles and walking – a lot of walking, on average 40 km per day.

Spending my first afternoon in Lisbon, the time came for a full day of sightseeing. “Lisbon in one day” is a two part series photographic journey starting with Alfama and ending with Chiado and Bairro Alto neighborhoods of Lisbon.
