Iceland stopover

Iceland stopover

Just south of the Arctic Circle, in the middle of the north Atlantic lays Iceland, an old country filled with vikings, volcanoes, and sheep. This northern land is most recently famous for the eruption of Eyjafjallajökull volcano in 2010 that caused air traffic chaos, but it has other claims of fame like singer Björk, and the Blue Lagoon, […]

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 […]

crate day

crate day

Posted from Queenstown, Otago, New Zealand. Is it a holiday? Is it a glorified excuse to abuse alcohol? A remarkable journey into the vast capabilities of the human body? Is it just a reason to try to consume 9 litres of alcohol in one day? Or an excuse to be a bloody idiot all day? […]

bewelcome – staying with a stranger

Posted from Nanterre, Île-de-France, France. People are inherently good. I believe this. Sure, there are bad people in the world, but most people are good – maybe a little caught up in their own lives and preoccupied with the “game,” but good, nonetheless. That’s my disclaimer and also my reasoning for joining and using BeWelcome.org, […]

Changi Airport

Changi Airport

Posted from Singapore. Changi Airport is said to be the best airport in the world. I had to question why. And until I found myself with a 12-hour layover, I knew nothing of this place. Had I experienced my 12 hours within security I’m sure I would’ve had a much different experience, but unfortunately I […]

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 […]

toes, geocaching and parks

Posted from Bangkok, Bangkok, Thailand. I really couldn’t wait to get back to Bangkok. I had been travelling for two months and I was ready to see a familiar face in the hub of SE Asia. I only had one full day in town to visit with my friend Stephanie before her spare room was scheduled […]

night train – Chiang Mai to Bangkok

night train – Chiang Mai to Bangkok

Posted from Mueang Chiang Mai, Chiang Mai, Thailand.   You’d think it would be easy to sleep on a train. You’d think. But when that train goes down a rail-line built by the Thais, it’s not gonna happen. My journey starts with a Songthew ride to the train station to buy a ticket. There are […]

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 […]
