Kuraburi and Si Phang Nga – touched by nature

April 13, 2017
travel Phang Nga province

I’m fascinated by the jungle. And I’m also afraid – or let’s say – I have a healthy portion of respect for it. One of the (many, many) reasons why I love Thailand so much, is the amount of well maintained national parks that take you closer to the eye of nature without loosing contact to civilization completely. And just when I thought I’ve seen it all, the country always comes up with something surprising… The most unexpected jewel of this trip…

From Sukhumvit to Khao San

Bangkok popular areas

Coming to Bangkok from Hanoi almost feels like a cultural shock: Despite being rather close to each other geographically, they are very different: The way Bangkok has developed into a westernized metropolis within the last decades, is quite remarkable. I’m not judging whether this good or bad, but coming from the “West” you’ll feel way more accommodated in Thailand’s capital than probably other places in Asia.…

A perfect weekend in Brno

March 4, 2017
Brno travel guide

Brno – pronounced (“Br-no”) – is Czech Republic’s second largest city. Never heard of it? Well, this is just another good example for a country that is dominated by a big capital while other cities are hardly on a traveler’s map. However, from Vienna it’s just a stone’s throw away and I can’t believe I just made it there last weekend for the first time……

Planning tips for your (long) term travels Pt. III: Packing list

February 26, 2017
travel packing tips

After I’ve talked about general precautions and my travel budget, it’s time to continue with some packing advice in my travel tip series: Whether I go for a weekend, two weeks or several months – my philosophy has always been to go as light as possible! And after all, it doesn’t make much of a difference. When I traveled for 7 months around the world I carried actually the same weight like I’d do for a two-week vacation.…
