Vietnam – Halong Bay and Hanoi

IMG_6083

I was sooo excited to go to Vietnam, I had heard so many awesome things about it and after two weeks of chilling in Bali I was ready for new adventures.

Even though it was a little bit annoying, to be ripped off by the taxi driver right after arriving in Hanoi, I was happy to be there. And hey, it was somehow my own fault not to have checked in advance  how the currency works and how much I should expect to pay. Continue reading

Bali – Canggu, Uluwatu and Kuta

Canggu

If you want to learn surfing in Bali, I think this is the place to be. It is not too busy, one of the cheaper places and it is just really nice. I ended up not surfing here, but I did the other thing that Bali is famous for which is Yoga. I was just in a state of mind at the time that anything with too much action didn’t quite feel right, so I spent my days sleeping in, hanging out on the beach, reading and doing  yoga. It was amazing. Continue reading

Thailand – Koh Pha-Ngan and Koh Tao

Koh Phangan Ferry Ride

I had been in Thailand for a bit over two weeks now and haven’t seen a beach yet, this screams for a change of scenery: Off to the islands.

I booked a flight from Chiang Mai to Surat Thani with Air Asia, even though I was a bit sceptical about this airline, I can now wholeheartedly say, I like Air Asia. They are cheap and their service is great. Why? Here is the story:
I must have been in complete holiday mode when I packed my stuff, because after checking in my luggage and when trying to get through security to my gate, the lady there told me I had a knife in my hand luggage. Continue reading

Thailand – Pai and the Golden Triangle

Pai Canyon

This already feels like it was ages ago, but I just didn’t have the chance to post this earlier.

Pai

When I came to Thailand I hadn’t even heard of Pai. But since I hadn’t planned anything yet I followed my fellow new travel buddies to this adorable hippie town north of Chiang Mai. Continue reading

Welcome to Thailand

Welcome to Thailand

When I plan a trip, I don’t usually think about all the things that could go wrong. I just prepare whatever I think is necessary and expect the best. So usually I just freak out really briefly right before the trip. This time was no exception and I worried that my expectations for South East Asia were too high and could never be met or that I would end up not finding any travel buddies and just be alone for 3 months.
Today, 3 days into my trip, I can already say, those worries were unnecessary. Continue reading

A weekend in the british countryside – Bourton on the Water

IMG_4468 - Kopie
A couple of weeks ago I wrote about my difficulties in planning to travel. I wanted to go on a ‘Country Side Adventure’ with a friend of mine and had to leave most of the planning to her as it is really hard for me to decide on a Hotel or even Town before being there.
I just returned for this trip and it was amazing. The planning my fried did for us paid out! The Bed and Breakfast we stayed in was so cute and just a little stroll away from the town centre.
But lets start at the beginning: We took the Underground from London to Heathrow Continue reading
