Travelblog: Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia

I love to travel and especially to more than one country at the same time. So last summer when I saw a 3 weeks trip to Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia I was thrilled. I didn’t have to think long about who to go with. I went with the same adventurous friend I took the Trans-Mongolian express with to Russia, Mongolia, China and Tibet with. Also, she’s a doctor and hey, it’s always handy to have one with you when you’re travelling right. We went around September 2016 and it was actually a great time. We feared the rain season but other than a few drops in Hanoi and Siem Reap, we mostly had sun.

Travelblog: Indonesia (Bali, Lombok, Gili Meno, Nusa Lembongan)

A few months ago I went to Indonesia with my sister and niece (and yes, I’m only now posting about it xd). It wasn’t my first time going to Asia, but it was my first time to Indonesia. Our vacation was an “island hopping” meaning we started out on Bali, then went to Lombok, Gili Meno and Nusa Lembongan. We booked this with tour operator Travelbird and everything was arranged just perfectly. All I can say about the experience is, wow! I can write a thousand words here, but it’s easier to just post pictures!
