As often as possible, traveling the world, one cup of coffee at a time.

Places I Follow

Lawrence's Activity

AEurope: 17 days in Europe

I would include a few days in Venice​. There's no better city for photography, and in December, the sun will lie lower in the sky during the entire day, lengthening the shadows. Just be certain that the seas are not flooding Piazza San Marco​,... See More

AFlorence: Help with a good travel itinerary!

I spent 7 days in Florence a couple of years ago. It's entirely doable without renting a car or scooters. The bus to Siena is easy to navigate (and by the way, the cathedral there is one of the most beautiful buildings I've ever encountered). There is a train to... See More

AFlorence: Uffizi tour in Florence?

When I toured the Uffizi Gallery​, I pulled up Rick Steves' audio tour on my iPhone. (It's also available on Android or any device that can play a podcast.) On its own, it takes 48 minutes, but you stop and start as you move from one room to the... See More

ABest Unexpected Event While Traveling?

About a year ago, I landed in Chiang Mai​ and was surprised to learn that the annual Flower Festival parade was scheduled for that very afternoon.   The parade was spectacular, with floats decorated with nothing other than flower parts, similar to... See More

ANew York City: What to do with 24 hours in NYC?

Get a discount-priced Broadway ticket at the TKTS Times Square​ booth, and take in a matinee or evening performance. After that, take the Number 1 train from Times Square to Sheridan Square and find the piano bar Marie's Crisis Cafe​... See More

ASoutheast Asia: Suggestions for trip to Thailand, Cambodia, and Burma?

Great trip idea, not dissimilar to the one I took last February. (I left off Cambodia in favor of more time in Myanmar.) Here are my notes for Myanmar: In Yangon​, the highlight of the city is the Shwedagon Pagoda​ complex. It... See More

AHow do you usually travel?

I usually travel alone, because I like to find inexpensive hotels, and I don't want my more luxury-dependent friends complaining that the shower is down the hall. I've had some luxuriously large accommodations whose only downside was plumbing as far away from the... See More

APrague: A weekend in Prague on a budget?

I'm going later in the Spring, and have booked at Hotel Anna​. Quite reasonable prices, and good reviews. See More

AVenice: Tips for Must see and Must do's in these Italian Cities?

In Venice, I stayed at a converted monastery, the Domus Ciliota​. It was located in a quiet neighborhood on the main island, and a quick walk to the Academia Bridge, the Gallerie dell'Accademia​ museum of art, and San Marco... See More

AMyanmar: Where to visit in Myanmar and Vietnam?

Great trip idea, not dissimilar to the one I took last February. (I visited Thailand instead of Vietnam.)  In Yangon, the highlight of the city is the Shwedagon Pagoda​ complex. It is beautiful at any time of the day but stands out... See More
