Below is the list of Countries I visited during the year 2015. Click on any country to view my travel photos and stories.

Hong Kong

Hong Kong is more than a harbor city with skyscrapers and crowded streets. From boat-buzzed waterfronts to its packed dim-sum restaurants, its incense-smoked temples to its chattering tea-houses, its street markets to its old-world hotels, Hong Kong is teeming with energy. For travelers, the best advice is to go with the flow.

Hungary

Hungary is a landlocked country in Central Europe. Over thousand years of history, since the first settlement on the territory by Celtic tribes, Hungary became part of many Empires including, Romans, Germanic Tribe, Magyars, Mongols, Ottoman Turks, Austro-Hungarian and Soviet Union. After WW-II in 1949, Hungary was declared a people’s republic and was ruled by communism. Finally, in 1989 Hungary became a democratic republic, a peaceful and prosperous nation.

Romania

Romania. a country located at the crossroads of Central, Eastern, and Southeastern Europe. The country is full of historic cities with their cobblestone streets and their medieval architecture, the friendly people, and the beautiful, picturesque countryside.

Slovakia

Slovakia is landlocked country in Central Europe, with high mountains in the north, low mountains in the center, hills to the west, and the Danube basin to the south. Over thousand years of history, since the first settlement on the territory by Celtic tribes, Slovakia became part of many Empires. Following the 1948 communist coup d’etat, Czechoslovakia fell into the Soviet-led Eastern Bloc and became a puppet state of the Soviet Union. Finally, in 1989, during the peaceful Velvet Revolution, Czechoslovakia became a democratic republic, that followed by separation of Slovak and Czech Republics on January 1, 1993.
