HAPPY PLACE THAILAND

2018-01-25T14:21:59+01:00

You haven’t heard from me for a long time, I know. Since arriving in Thailand something has changed in my body and mind. I have the feeling that I found my current "Happy Place" in Thailand. As happy and contented as there, I have rarely been in my life so far. The people, places, moments, conjure up a smile on my face every day and fill me with positive energy. I‘m just happy to wake up in the morning and realize where I am at the moment and how thankful I can be. So I started in the north of Thailand, in beautiful and cultural Chiang Mai. The city may not seem very impressive to some at

CÁT BÀ – HALONG BAY

2017-11-07T16:55:46+01:00

Our last stop in Vietnam was the largest island in Halong Bay. Cát Bà Island. The island itself is not as overcrowded as the well-known Halong Bay and you have time to sit back and relax. That is exactly what my Mum and I have done the last few days in Vietnam. Just relaxed. That's why I can not tell you much about the island. Except that it hosts one of the most beautiful national parks in Vietnam and is a great location to do day trips to Halong Bay. The latter we have done and booked a tour with kayaking, a stopover on Monkey Island and snorkeling. (The snorkeling can also be omitted, there's not much

NINH BÌNH – THE DRY HALONG BAY

2017-11-07T08:26:32+01:00

Hey guys, After my mum and I needed to say Goodbye to Hoi An, we went with anticipation to Ninh Bình. Ninh Bình is a small province 80km south of Hanoi and is also known as the Dry Halong Bay. And the way down there is already worth an experience. If you take the local bus. ;) From the airport we took an UBER to the bus station Giáp Bát of Hanoi. Barely got out,  the first locals came and asked us if we want to go to Ninh Bình. We agreed and they brought us to a small cheap bus and told us to wait for a few minutes. The bus driver 'sweetened' the waiting time

LANTERN TOWN – HOI AN

2017-10-25T11:23:34+02:00

Hey there:), It's me again & this time the beautiful Hoi An is the turn. I'm enjoying since a week now the breathtaking colorful light-flooded old town and I'm fascinated every evening by it again. In 1999, UNESCO also drew attention to the small town and from then on counted the harbor city as a world cultural heritage. Hoi An is a small coastal town about 30 km south of Da Nang and is located in the heart of Vietnam. Besides the truly amazing location and the impressive old town, Hoi An also offers excellent cuisine and countless tailoring and leather shops. The town is also known as a tailor-made town beside the lanterns. Tourists are coming

CÔN DÀO ISLAND

2017-10-23T08:53:33+02:00

Xin chào! after my mum and I had been to the Mekong Delta & Ho Chi Minh City, we were longing for some peace and serenity. So we booked two flights spontaneously to Con Dao. Con Dao is a fairly small and still sparsely populated island south of Vietnam. In addition to beautiful beaches, bays, fluffy-looking mountains of rainforests and some prison ruins of the Vietnam War, there is much silence and relaxation. If you want to be more active, the cheapest and most fun way is to rent a scooter. We did that, of course. Helmet on and let's go! By the really not yet developed tourism we had the roads as good as for ourselves

MEKONG DELTA

2017-10-15T18:40:57+02:00

Hello my loves, Last week I finally got my backpack strapped on my back again and made me together with my mum on the way back to Asia. To Vietnam. Our first stop: Ho Chi Minh City or also known as Saigon. But I need to say we only spent one day here because the city was too dirty, loud and crowded for us. With a privat-tour we escaped directly to the Mekong Delta on our second day. At six o'clock in the morning the alarm clock rang and our guide picked us up with a car. 2 1/2 hours later we finally arrived at our destination Cai Be in the Mekong Delta. In Cai Be begins

NUSA ISLANDS 

2017-07-16T14:16:31+02:00

Hello again:) Because I didn't like it very much in Seminyak and generally on the coast of Bali, I decided to make a short trip to Nusa Lembongan. Nusa Lembogan is located south of Bali and can be reached by the speedboat from Sanur in about 30 minutes. Arrived at Lembongan, I understood why the Nusa Islands still considered an insider tip. There are relatively few tourists here and everything is still very original and simple. What I really liked, because Semiynak was simply overrun and incredibly loud & dirty. In the hostel (Lembongan Hostel) I met some cool and nice people and planned with two of them a trip to the big sister island Nusa Penida

EXPLORING UBUD II

2017-07-09T17:47:03+02:00

My second week in Ubud is already over now & I still love the city. (even if the weather at the moment is quite unpredictable) But that's no problem :) On rainy days I go to a good spa and treat myself with an amazing (and cheap) massage or mani / pedicure. (Or all together!)  And then spend the evening in one of my favorite restaurants like the Bali Yoga in the Jl. Kajeng.  They have very delicious food and a very comfortable athmosphere.  But if the weather is better, I walk through the city or to the rice fields which are directly in Ubud and from my accommodation about a five-minutes-walk away. Taking a long walk

MONKEY FOREST

2017-07-04T11:41:14+02:00

Hello again, As the title suggests I made a trip to the Monkey Forest Park in the middle of Ubud. I started from my accommodation and walked to the Monkey Forest Road. (From the main road 'Raya Ubud' it takes about 15 minutes to get to the destination.) The closer I got to the park, the more pictures and videos from Facebook started spinning around in my head. From monkeys stealing your sunglasses. Your mobile phone, camera or anything else which is not safe. So, as you can imagine, I felt a little nervous. (But this time I had prepared for the trip (not like the Hidden Canyon trip) & stowed all the loose things in my

HIDDEN CANYON BALI

2017-06-30T02:28:19+02:00

Hello guys :), Last weekend a friend from Singapore visited me in Ubud. She picked me up with her little 'Scoopy' scooter and we made our way out of the city. On the scooter, I asked her where exactly we would go and what the 'Hidden Canyon' actually is. She just said, "Oh, a friend told me about it, he said you might get a bit wet." At that moment that sounded quite relaxed for me. A bit of water is not bad ... When we arrived at the Hidden Canyon car park and at the ticket stand, our illusion was directly destroyed. The salesmen said that we can't do the hike without a guide. Especially not
