Sihanoukville – second attempt

Sometimes life brings you back to places you already have been to – so I ended up going back to Sihanoukville for a couple of days as I got a cheap flight to Siem Reap. So instead of loosing a day and a half from Kamot I had a one hour flight. I didn´t expected…

Some days in Kep and Koh Tonsey (Rabbit Island)

Kep itself hasn´t too much to offer as the town is spread within one street alongside the coastline so you have to walk a lot for anything. There is one beach which is ok but from my hotel 2.5km away. The good thing is, I found a place where I have my own room and…

2 weeks in Vietnam

Hanoi I started on a bad foot arriving in Hanoi and got overhelmed from all the traffic and motobikes in town. After coming straight from beautiful Laos, its nature and calmness, Hanoi was a bit too much for me. It is easy to get from the airport to the old part of town where most…

Yoga in Laos

There are several places to practice, mainly one studio in every “bigger” city. Due to my sickness I couldn´t test any of them myself but they look nice places and I heard good things from other travellers or was also in contact with the studios themselves. Here are the places to practice yoga in Laos:…

Stand-by Laos

Being sick in Vang Vieng The next stop in Laos was Vang Vieng, some years ago famous for its drug and partyscene and the tubing it now slowed down though there are still some bars and party people stopping by. I skipped all the fun part as I already became sick in Luang Prabang. It…

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…
