"A world beyond the books" clarelim's Profile


Ever wondered what you'll do if you won $1 million in the lottery? Did you think about travelling the world as your first expenditure? Or was it that car, or house you've been eyeing?

It's so amazing to see the world revolve, especially beneath the eyes of different members on virtualtourist and it's a real pleasure to be able to share my experiences, good, bad, ugly, with you.


Obsession with Japan

In 2005, I made my first trip to Japan and caught the bug of going back again and again.

If you've been to Japan, you'll understand what's so magical about the place, culture, people... and in 2007, i decided to go alone, so i did, 3 times... from Feb - April... and now am absolutely broke, but gonna make my way up to Beijing in August!

If you worked hard in life and spent it mostly on travelling, I don't see a reason why you should regret when you die. :) These experiences last forever.

Black Forest

Round Central Europe in 12 days, that's like speed dating except there's no one there to really annoy you...

Besides Paris and Luzern being my favourite cities, if you have time do visit Titisee, Black Forest.

I would recommend you to put up at a night or 2 at the Hofgut Sternen Best Western Hotel, it's really great in Spring, cold at some point, but the warmth of the country style cottage will soothe it.
Absolutely peaceful and serene. The Pork knuckles and breakfast are also sensational there...

Rhine Falls

The Rhine Falls or Schaffhausen, is the largest waterfall in Europe. I like this place for its simplicity and tranquility.

On a nice, breezy day in Spring, enjoy feeling the sprout of light mist on your cheeks as you gaze at the intensity of each plunge of the waterfall. Beautiful swans are by the lake, chillin', people are walking their dogs, its a lovely place to stop by and savour some yummy hot dogs which use quality sausages.
