Winding down with the hippies in Northern Thailand: Pai

So after some intense partying in Pattaya, I felt I needed to relax and get away from all the busy and hectic life down south. So I made my way up to Pai, a small town north of Chiang Mai. From Pattaya it was a loooong day of traveling. First I took the taxi from Pattaya to Bangkok DongMuang airport, then took an AirAsia flight to Chiang Mai. Once I arrived in Chiang Mai airport, I took a taxi to bus station. There are several buses you can take depending on your budget and your taste for adventure. You could...

Bright lights and neons in Hong Kong, cliff jumping and visit to cat cafe

Hong Kong is my last stop on my 1 year travel around the world. It’s not a stop that I intended to visit because my parents are from Hong Kong and I’ve been here several times before. It was a required stop on my way back to Belgium. In the previous visits I haven’t ever really traveled around in Hong Kong. Most of the time, I’ve just been visiting relatives, taking care of paperwork, eating and shopping. So I had no idea what Hong Kong really had to offer. This time around I wanted to really TRAVEL in Hong Kong....

Bangkok revisited & Kanchanaburi

The first time I visited Bangkok, I was pretty pre-occupied with the Thai New year celebration Songkran. Meaning I didn’t have much time to actually go sightseeing around and see the Royal Palace either. This time I’m in town for a few days and I met up with a couchsurfer, Alina for some sightseeing. We walked around the Royal Palace for a bit and then walked around Chinatown and Little India. The palace was a nice place to visit, great examples of Thai architecture and royal treasures. The real highlight of that day wasn’t really the palace itself, but a...

Sunset in Luang Prabang 2

Luang Prabang, UNESCO World Heritage centre

While some people decide to skip Vientiene or/and Vang Vieng, noone visits Laos without stopping by the charming little town of Luang Prabang. The entire peninsula surrounded by Mekong and the Nam Khan is UNESCO protected along with its numerous Wats and French colonial buildings. Traveling in Luang Prabang isn’t about trying to visit all the attraction. It’s about enjoying the laid-back traveling life. The heat probabbly also has something to do with it too though. We spent all and all about 5 days or so in the city itself. First day we rented a bike and went around the...

Busan & Jeju island

Busan was the first stop in South-Korea after Japan. To be totally honest, I was pretty beat from traveling around so much in Japan. I’ve seen a lot of mountains, done some really nice hikes and visited a good amount of temples. And not to bring South-Korea down, but it is pretty much the same here, of course there are some cultural differences to be find. Nevertheless, the first couple of days I just chilled in Busan and figured out my plan for the next destinations. Though I did manage to find some stuff to do while I was here....

Moving on: Ilha Grande, Sao Paulo, Foz do Iguaçu

It’s been a while since my last update and during this time I’ve moved several times already and am currently writing this post on the airplane towards Buenos Aires. It’s been quite hectic the last couple of days since I moved to several different places. I had to find hostels and find transport from and to places and to the hostels. From Rio de Janeiro I’ve moved to Ilha Grande (extra destination), Sao Paulo and Foz do Iguaçu. I stayed only a few days at most of these destinations but still enough to see a lot of what the city...
