This is a story about one of the best trips I’ve ever made in my life with one of the best travelmates I’ve ever had. This is a story on how I crossed one of Indonesia’s most magical islands on a motorbike. This is a story about Flores, which contains all the magic of Indonesia on one […]
I already quite liked Koh Mak, one of the few places in Thailand that I actually enjoyed. I’m not a big fan of the overcrowded, touristy beaches where all form of culture seems to have disappeared. When a friend brought me to a hidden spot in the jungle, my likings for the island only grew bigger.
Is solo travel even safe? What if my friends and family don’t approve? Won’t I be lonely? I am kind of shy. Won’t I get bored? Isn’t it better to travel with someone together? What if I’m not brave enough? Or if I get homesick? What if I come home early because of this homesickness or […]
You might get very high hopes by reading this title. The Kathmandu Fun Park for sure is fun, and it definitely is the biggest theme park of Nepal, but it sure as hell ain’t Disneyland (which is good – but hey, you know what I mean).
When the group I traveled with and I decided to go on an off the beaten path journey to Kong Lor cave in Laos, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. Yeah, I wanted to go, since it was one of the few places in Laos I hadn’t yet visited. But I wasn’t mega enthusiastic, which […]

Suffering from post-traveling depression there’s nothing better than curling up on the couch on a rainy day watching travel movies. These are some of my favourites. I’m aiming to extend this list as much as possible so it will turn out to become the Ultimate List of Travel Movies.
Absolutely nothing could have prepared me for a visit to Bangladesh’ capital Dhaka. For me to go there after travelling through Myanmar was an impulsive action, so I came barely prepared anyway. All I knew was that it was poor and immensely densely populated. However, it turned out to be an experience I will never forget […]
The cities of China transform at night. It seems like they never sleep. Barbecues keep going until 4 in the morning, spectacular lightshows spring up on skylines and rivers and steaming pans of youtzes are sold everywhere.
When I hopped on the plane that would take me from Bangkok to Yangon I’d been traveling for over 9 months. I started to think I couldn’t be surprised anymore. A temple was just a temple now. Another jungle with monkeys I tried to avoid, since these animals always try to steal your stuff. And yet […]
