tips for staying in a hut

tips for staying in a hut

Posted from Koh Chang Tai, Trat, Thailand. It’s low season and I’m kind of bored. And happy. And calm. But bored. It’s a side-effect of being sober and being alone, or so I’ve concluded. Or it’s because I’m in a hut on a nearly deserted island living rustically. But before I get into my tips […]

Koh Mak – the secret paradise

Koh Mak – the secret paradise

Posted from Ko Mak, Trat, Thailand. When a traveler comes across something special, like a magical or idyllic place unspoiled by the riggers of tourism and commercialism, especially in Thailand, they get very excited. Welcome to Koh Mak. The true quest of a serious traveler is to discover such a place. To tell only those […]

Sweden you say?

Sweden you say?

Posted from Halmstad, Halland County, Sweden. Life can throw some interesting things your way when you’re least expecting it. And if you pay close enough attention you’ll see just how keen the universe’s sense of humour is. Like LOL keen. Like punch me in the gut keen. Like really, stop. I get it. Before I […]

Sanur

Sanur

Posted from Denpasar, Bali, Indonesia. From the not so magical land of Ubud I travelled to Sanur, a sleepy seaside town on the east coast of Bali. Sure, there are more famous towns I could’ve gone to. And I’m not quite sure why I chose Sanur, but to be honest, I thought it was on […]

south Kuta – Bali

south Kuta – Bali

Posted from South Kuta, Bali, Indonesia. Bali is a big island. So when people say they are going to Bali, they could be in any number of places, Sanur, Ubud, Uluwatu, Kuta, Lovina, lying on gold or black sand, playing budget accommodation lottery or paying obscene dinero for the average 5-star resort, seeing the sunrise […]

Gili Trawangan

Gili Trawangan

Posted from West Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia. Oh, Gili Trawangan. How easy it is to do nothing and forget about everything when I am on such a laid-back and easy-going island. The hangovers contribute to my shiftlessness, but this island is also known as the party island, and I don’t plan on leaving without exploiting that […]

Sentosa Island

Sentosa Island

Posted from Singapore. To the south of Sinapore lies Sentosa Island, home to the most southern tip in continental Asia, golden beaches and a modern playground of adrenaline inducing awesome activities. Sentosa Island isn’t exactly what I make it sound like though. Picture Epcot, or Sea World, or a subdued Phuket where children probably won’t […]

Koh Mook

Koh Mook

Posted from Kantang, Trang, Thailand. My ferry from Koh Lanta to Koh Mook took three hours and cost 500 Baht, which isn’t bad considering it was low season and I was quite certain a storm was going to slam into us during the crossing lengthening my trip considerably. In two weeks the ferries stop operating […]

Vienna

Posted from Address not found. The train ride from Salzburg to Vienna is a short journey. There are a few train stations in Vienna, with trains departing and arriving from different locations. I wasn’t sure where my ticket would leave me, but the transportation system in the city is excellent and very straight forward to […]
