Dalat, the math and the schedule

Dalat, the math and the schedule

I planned everything carefully, but I should’ve known better… As the majority of my day was spent with travelling back from the island anyway, I thought I spend the rest of it on the road as well, heading to Dalat. This way I could have […]

Con Dao, my birthday gift

Con Dao, my birthday gift

Originally, I planned to leave the beach to the end of my trip and head North to South, but I realized that the weather in March favours the opposite direction. That’s why I started in Saigon and stayed at the beach in the beginning of […]

Trand De – travelled across the Mekong Delta

Trand De – travelled across the Mekong Delta

I’m in a faraway corner of Vietnam, away from the popular tourist destination. I haven’t seen a western face for a day now, since I left Saigon. I got a teenager driver who doesn’t speak a word in English, but he is very enthusiastic instead. […]

Saigon 101

Saigon 101

Saigon – or Ho Chi Minh City if you like – for beginners. I planned exactly this: just the basics to see and feel if Southeast Asia is still a good fit for me. My flight was pretty long and I felt supertired when finally […]

Preparation – the Vietnamese visa

Started here, ends here – Singapore

Started here, ends here – Singapore

I had difficulties with writing this post. Even watching Kung Fu Panda 1, 2 & 3(!) became a higher priority. It is the same feeling, like before important exams I suddenly have the urge of cleaning my apartment and washing the dishes, as if with […]

Malaysia just gets better – Malacca

Malaysia just gets better – Malacca

It seems that I keep visiting some place, where I had no intention to go at all, but it turns out to be a good decision to spend some time there. I was thinking about what to do after the Cameron Highlands a lot. I […]

Green rolling hills – Cameron Highlands

Green rolling hills – Cameron Highlands

I was heading to the Cameron Highlands from the super hot and humid Penang. I travelled with Deborah, whom I met in the hostel in George Town. We didn’t sleep much the night before and it didn’t have to do anything with the travel excitement. […]

In love with Penang

In love with Penang

I seem to easily fall in love with cities I never meant to visit. This was the case with George Town as well. But I don’t mind. Do you know the feeling, when you arrive somewhere and you feel at home immediately? This was exactly […]
