Luang Prabang

Luang Prabang

Love at first sight. Right after getting off the slow boat we were already sitting on a tuk-tuk, and within a couple of minutes we were standing in the center of the town. Lao feast Right on time, as I could explore the offers of […]

Cruising on the Mekong

Cruising on the Mekong

I looked up some description about the slow boat, but all posts that I found with a quick search were really outdated. Many things changed throughout the years: foreigners are not allowed to cross the border with the ferry anymore, we need to go through […]

Spontaneous bordercrossing to Laos

I figured a while ago, that from Northern Thailand I will go to Laos, and will travel there from North to South, in the direction of Cambodia. I cancelled my original plan to go to Northern Vietnam and spend some time with trekking. I knew […]

Temple overload in Chiang Mai

Temple overload in Chiang Mai

I remember writing about Bali, that there are temples or temple-like buildings at every corner. Same is true for Chiang Mai, with the exception, that here actually everything is a temple that looks like a temple. And there’s a lot of them. My trip from […]

I hit the road again

I hit the road again

This is home. I realized it in the beginning of December. I remember one day I went to Koh Samui to extend my visa, returned to Koh Phangan: got off the ferry and walked to my scooter with confidence. I left the parking lot in […]
