PASSAGE by Serge Maheu, February 2022

As it happened with the Botero sculpture I am always looking for new things to see in New York so I have motivation to get out of my hotel room even if it's winter and fucking cold outside. The goal of this stopover in New York was to see the installation artwork "PASSAGE" by Serge Maheu.

Newark Liberty

This journey would start this time with a dead head flight to Newark Liberty Airport. I flew on the A321LR that would become my own long range aircraft one year later. But this time I was only qualified on the Airbus A330.

Nice to be parked side by side with this El Al retro dreamliner.


PASSAGE is an itinerant installation that was on display in the Garment District of Manhattan, in January/February 2022. It is basically an immersive tunnel of lights/colours and sounds.

I <3 NY

Finally a photo in Times Square and its Disney Store; one of the many Gift Shops branded "I <3 NY" with a super nice Air Force One scale model; and a last photo in the Americas Avenue:

There is always something new happening in New York!

Snowy Helsinki, January 2013

As you some of you might already know, Helsinki was one of my favorite stopovers. Even during winter period:

New York, June 2024: Gasenvoort Peninsula

This was my 4th time in New York this year. I'm always glad to have it. I arrived on the summer solstice day and temperatures were insanely high. So I decided to enjoy the longest day of the year and go the beach in Manhattan!

Gasenvoort Peninsula

Gasenvoort Peninsula is located in the Hudson River Park and surprisingly it is not an old pier. Also it is not that far from Little Island. Although swimming is not allowed you can enjoy being on real sand with some beach chairs and umbrellas. I enjoyed spending my time there sunbathing and listening to my music.

World Trade Center

On my way to the hotel, I never waste the chance for a couple of artistic photos.

Newark Liberty

Next day, as usual, I stayed in Newark doing some shopping and having a little pre-flight rest. I left the hotel after lunch time for my return flight to Lisbon. Nice to have a Lufthansa 747-8 side by side with our tiny but cosy A321LR.

Barcelona & Malpensa Airport, February 2024

Just a quick post to show a couple of photos I took in Barcelona, last February: the Sagrada Família seen from my hotel and a nice close-up of Torre Glòries at night, located in the Poblenou neighbourhood.

Before going to Barcelona, and part of the same flight pairing, we did a turnaround flight to Milan - Malpensa:

Copenhagen & Funchal, May 2024

This month I was two times in Funchal and one in Copenhagen. 


Trains and tracks always draw my attention.


I'm also a fan of Niemeyer's work and his world of curved lines. The iconic casino in Funchal is a clear example of that.
