Once again it has come the time to say goodbye. The last time was in Sydney when I started my journal by saying goodbyes to the city I had lived in for almost a year. At that point I was looking forward to my travels in South East Asia but also the time ... Read more >

There is a chicken in the bus

LAOS | Wednesday, 30 Nov 2011 | Views [866]

I’m in Laos. I’m trying to think of some words to describe you all I have experienced in the past few days I’ve been here but since I’m not a writer I find it very hard. I’m sitting in a bus to Vientiaine and I’m playing a game with a five year old ... Read more >

Since my Thai visa was expiring in few days and Bangkok was about to become one big pool I decided to evacuate myself as soon as possible. Because to the east seemed to be the only land route out of Bangkok not filled with water, Cambodia was a logical ... Read more >

Stop for a moment

THAILAND | Saturday, 29 Oct 2011 | Views [496]

It’s quiet. People are calm. At first look a traveler would say everything looks normal. Food stalls on the streets are selling their delicious dishes. People are smiling and doing their chores. Dogs sleep on the street. Tuk tuk driver is ... Read more >

Getting there and away

THAILAND | Saturday, 29 Oct 2011 | Views [333]

Traveling in Thailand is not very easy. Is not that there wouldn’t be busses, trains, taxis, boats or travel agencies but there are too many and something is always lost in translation. You think you make it easier for yourself by buying train-bus-... Read more >

and so came the tears

AUSTRALIA | Friday, 16 Sep 2011 | Views [266]

Today I have travelled by boat, by horse carriage, by minibus, by ferry, by another minibus and by foot. Maybe being hungry and tired have caused an emotional wave to flush over me or maybe it is the feeling of being so powerless and helpless in ... Read more >

As I have not been able to get online for awhile I post few stories at once so just bare with me. My first day at Gili Trawangan is turning into night as I hear the fourth call for the prayer from the mosque. Most of the population here are Muslims ... Read more >

Ubud

INDONESIA | Tuesday, 13 Sep 2011 | Views [302]

Ubud is a beautiful place. It is quite touristic but I think it hasn’t lost its personality to the tourism yet. You can still find the streets were the locals live and do their everyday chores although they do try to get their share of the money that ... Read more >

The coffee horror

AUSTRALIA | Friday, 9 Sep 2011 | Views [361]

I have come to realize that there is no such thing in Bali that getting up late. I’m quite fine with that but I need my morning coffee to make sure that I am actually awake and not just sleep walking. When staying at Kuta the coffee served at the ... Read more >

Cold shower and warm wind

INDONESIA | Friday, 9 Sep 2011 | Views [513]

Anyone who knows me at all must not be surprised when I state that there is no weather hot enough for a cold shower. I prefer my shower to be hot or at least warm and before you go and call me crazy I assure that there is the same logic behind it ... Read more >
