Visiting Luang Prabang

I spent about three full days here, which was a fair amount of time. Within one day of walking around the city center, you have enough time to see everything. I walked around the old part of town, visited some of the endless temples and crossed the bamboo bridge to the other side where you…

Crossing to Laos – two days on the Mekong

In order to make my life easier, I decided to prebook a tour which would bring me from Pai directely to Luang Prabang in Laos. The trip was three days, one day in Minivan and two days on a slowboat on the Mekong river. The decision was alright even though you surely can arrange this…

Pai : laid-back or wannabe hippies town?

I decided to go to Pai, 3h north to Chiang Mai as the location itself seemed to be quite nice; the landscape on some pictures I saw was stunning. About the town itself I heard so many different opinions that I had to check it for myself. Some say its beautiful and chilling, others said…

Yin Yoga & Energy Immersions with Lek

Checking the yoga studios in Chiang Mai I happily found out tha my stay there was coinciding with a workshop that really sounded interessting. Now being a Hatha teacher but at the same time still (and always will be) a student. I thought this was a great opportunity of getting to know how another culture…

Yoga in Chiang Mai

Yoga Kuukan The first studio I went to in Ching Mai was Yoga Kuukan conveniently situated in the Northeastern part of town and only a short walk away from Mr. Jacks Guesthouse (100 Baht/Night) where I stayed my first week. The studio itself is nice and clean. You get a warmly welcome and some herbal…

24 hours of silence

2 days of meditation I thought attending one of this short two day meditation retreats would be kind of a superficial experience from what I heard and read from other blogggers but as I didn´t had any other plans I thought I could as well attend it and try it out for myself. What I…

Living Life : first week in Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai – some people say it´s one of the biggest cities after Bangkok but once you are in it, it is much more easy going. There are no buses which whom you can get lost – you can basically walk everywhere or just rent a bike. For longer distance you also have the red…

Ayutthaya – the Rome of Asia

I stayed 4 days in Ayutthaya and I loved the town. Being a close one day tour destination from Bangkok I´m glad I stayed longer. The town is small but big enough to walk around the whole day, rent a bicycle and explore the area, temple by temple. Khmer culture is widespread but I also…

Trip 2.0 Asia, here I come

Anyone asking himself why I haven´t been too active lately might hopefully be happy to know that I´m stil alive and doing quite well. Maybe too well. My first week in Thailand was already full of experiences, not enough sleep and meeting lots of nice people wherever I went to. Currently I´m North, but let´s…
