From Gandhi To 007 – First Days In India

I got my passport stamped at the international airport Bangkok at around 3am, a few hours after my 30-days-visa expired, thus with an endorsement. Nevertheless, I left Thailand to fly to India. On my […]

Shirley’s Angels Last Days in Vietnam

Castaway in Ha Long Bay Zum Morgengrauen brachen wir auf nach Ha Long Bay auf die private Castaway-Insel vom Vietnam Backpacker Hostel. 3 Tage/2 Nächte vor der Traumkulisse des Weltkulturerbes. Nur ein paar Hütten, Strand und Meer, eingerahmt von einer Felsenlandschaft. Und in diesem, unserem Fall, jede Menge Alkohol. Der Großteil der knapp 100 Inselbewohner schien […]

Good Morning Vietnam

Arrival in Ho-Chi-Minh-City I continued my travel towards East from Cambodia to Vietnam. With my 4 week visa in my passport, the first stop was Ho-chi-Minh-City, better known as Saigon. Like in Cambodia, I got shown the cruel past of this war-torn country. I visited the Independent Palace and the war museum, where they present (naturally from a subjective […]

More precisely, I stayed at Otres Beach, a bit outside of the city center. This time I granted myself […]

Over Iceland and the U.S., I explored Central- and South America, did a detour to the Caribbean to fascinating Cuba, traveled trough breathtaking South Africa, […]

Live’s great Mate!

Byron Bay – Let’s get the party started From idyllic surfer village Yamba I moved on along the coast in Brisbane direction. Next stop: Byron Bay. A famous backpacker place at the East Coast. Again, nice surf and beautiful beaches. The lighthouse at the most easterly point of the Australian mainland is fantastically situated in […]

No Thunder in Down Under

2 Days in the air What a journey. I started at Wednesday at 6:10pm from Cape Town to Dubai. Thursday morning, 9 hours later, my Emirates-Boing landed at the Sheik-City. I redeemed my voucher at a cafe and relaxed a bit at the in the deckchairs at the gate, since I had plenty of time. My next […]

Marvelous South Africa
