A quick visit to Pattaya – Sin city of Thailand

In 2014 I gave myself a trip to Thailand as a birthday gift. The difference this time is that I won’t be traveling as a backpacker, but rather a “flashpacker”. I didnt even bring a backpack but a trolley that I borrowed. The goal this time was also to kick back and relax rather than going on the road everyday and sightseeing everyday. This time I also brought my buddy Greg with me as he hasn’t been to Thailand before but if you remember he did travel to Japan with me. He’s not so much an adventurous traveler, but more...

Diving in Koh Tao and Full Moon Party in Koh Phangan

After the adventure in Myanmar, it was time for something totally different. I met up with Benny, a friend I met during my first stay in Thailand during Songkran. We met up in Bangkok and headed to Koh Tao and Koh Phangan for some diving and of course… the infamous full moon party. Koh Tao The island of Koh Tao is mainly famous its diving. There are plenty of dive shops spread out over the island and from what I’ve seen so far, it seems that it’s one of the cheapest place to get your diving certificate. You pay for...

Threading into Laos – Vientiene & Vang Vieng

Vientiene The first stop in the unknown Laos was Vientiene. I had no idea what to expect from this “little” town. It wasn’t until I left Vientiene on the bus that I found out that Vientiene is actually the capital of Laos…. There wasn’t much to see in the city itself besides the cool sculpture park. For me one of the only things that were worth visiting. They had tons of weird, buddhistic, godly sculptures spread out over the area. It was a nice 1 hour stroll, in the scorching sun though…. It was also the first time to experience...

Start of the Inca adventure in Peru (Lima & Cusco)

Edit: Actually posting this just now, since there is very limited internet speed here in Venezuela! What better time to start writing about my trip(s) in Peru than on my last day in Lima, Peru.  To be honest I didn’t think I’d be traveling so much during my time here in Peru, but there’s just so much to see and visit that you can’t help it. And to make things worse, Peru has a great (and cheap) long distance bus traject all over the country. There are tons of different bus companies that offer you great service depending on the...

Brazil beaches 7

Experiencing Rio de Janeiro

So yesterday I finally got a taste of the real Brazilian sun and it wasn’t exactly kind on me… I got kinda burnt on my neck and slightly on my arms too. Though I was already kind of black, now I’m really getting closer to that fondant chocolate color. I didn’t think to bring sunblock on that day out since I’m dark skinning, I figured it wouldn’t effect me that much. But today I went to the beach again and tried to even it out a bit, but during my shower just now, I have some really ugly farmers tan...

Must visit places / must-do in South-Korea (part 3)

Part 3 of the places you must visit when you’re ever in South Korea. Remember to check out part 1 and part 2 for more highlights! Party like it’s friday in Hongdae (yes that was a Rebecca Black reference) The area surrounding Hongik University, or ‘Hongdae‘ (홍대) as it’s affectionately called, is the center of Korea’s youthful nightlife. Many of Seoul’s idiosyncratic clubs that draw the younger set are clustered in the area, and on the last Friday of every month these clubs host a ‘Club Day. While many tend to visit Hongdae only during the bewitching hours at night,...
