Twists, Turns And Paradises Found In Indonesia

Many things went wrong on the last part of my trip, in Indonesia. Many things also went right and now when I think of Indonesia I see it as a very appropriate ending for my trip, and it somehow tied the journey together. Advertisements

Unexpected Adventures In Malaysia

Malaysia was a funny thing. It was in my itinerary as just a short layover in Kuala Lumpur, between Thailand and Singapore but things happened. Around New Year’s, southern Thailand and its islands where I was supposed to go diving, was flooding. So it became clear pretty quickly that I couldn’t go there but since…

Uncovering Vietnam

Vietnam was the country that offered me probably the craziest two weeks of my entire trip, the good and the bad and the beautiful and the ugly. It’s not the easiest country to write about and I could just put some photographs here but no, Vietnam’s worth more.

My trip to Singapore and Bintan, Indonesia

Feel like going to Singapore? Great, let’s go. Imagine the weather quite hot and humid, sun shining down on you. You’re wearing your favorite summer clothes and maybe zipping some cold drink.
