TravelAround: North Luanda, Angola

  Platform instability has been causing errors, slowness and breaking the layout of some of the pages. I am hunting down the problem but it still persists. My apologies for the inconvenience and bellow-par experience.   The series of visits to Angola keeps on going, and trust me, I’m not complaining! This time, after a long preparation, and investigation I…

TravelAround: Sin city – Las Vegas, USA

Las Vegas, also known as the Sin City or the adult’s playground is located on the Nevada State, USA. The city was created in the middle of the Mojave Desert and there isn’t any change you forget about that fact when you get here in July: temperatures above 45ºC tend to constantly remember you. We all have heard, read and…


Time has come for another trip: a come back to Gavlë and Sandviken, Sweden. About a year ago I was fortunate enough to travel to Sweden for the first time and was received by a Christmas scenery as I couldn’t believe and wrote a post on the TravelAround series: TravelAround: Gävle and Sandviken, Sweden. Later on, I came back to Sweden, this time during the summer and to the South and once again was very well impressed. Malmö is a beautifull city, with lots of water and certainly benefited of big days with lots of sunshine (check the trip post: TravelAround: Malmö, Sweden).


This time around, I’ll have an added challenge as I will be driving for the first time on the icy roads of that northern location. Hopefully I will also get to know a bit of Stockholm, the capital city. Can’t wait to get there! 🙂


In about 15 hours, I’ll be trading the comfort of my home for 4 hours on the road, heading north to Serra da Estrela Natural Park (which translates to start mountain range). During the weekend, Imaginature 2017, will be taking place in Manteigas, deep in the glaciar valley. Being one of my favorite landscape photography destinations in Portugal, I can’t waste the opportunity to try to capture some images. Hence the early start of the day. The objective is arriving the first location well before sunrise (which by the way occurs earlier on altitude): Vale de Rossim. I will be posting details of the trip as I go along on Instagram (ruimphoto) and twitter (@ruimphoto #estrelatrip). Full report after getting back 🙂




Taking advantage of the IMAGINATURE ( , an event dedicated to the landscape photography, I will visit some of the iconic spots of this park. It will be a tough adventure with little sleep, trying to make the most of this amazing location. Stay tuned for the updates.

TravelAround: Malmö, Sweden

Malmö is the capital city of the Scania district, in the southern part of Sweden. With a population of approximately 300.000 inhabitants, Malmö is the third largest city in Sweden and the fifth of Scandinavia.  Once a big industrial area, Malmö struggled with the adaptation to the post-industrialism. The construction of the Øresund Bridge, brought a new life to the region,…

TravelAround: Copenhagen, Denmark [#pitstop]

While travelling to Sweden, I had the opportunity to go for a quick visit to Copenhagen, capital city of Denmark. Making the quick visit of no more than 3 hours, proved to be a worthwhile investment. The Sun was out, although the wind made the experience a bit uncomfortable. From CPH (Copenhagen airport), it takes 12 minutes to reach Central Station, located at Copenhagen…
