Visiting Mu Koh Surin National Park

April 23, 2017
Surin islands day trip

Dear Thailand, I gotta tell you something: You’re spoiled. The amount of tropical islands that belong to your kingdom isn’t fair. And I doubt I’ll be able to visit all of them during my lifetime but I’m trying. It doesn’t matter how often I keep coming back to you, I’ll always end up with a longer bucket list. One by one I’m working my way through that list to finally make it to one of the remotest of all Thai…

Castles by the sea – Trieste and Duino

July 14, 2016
Duino Trieste

A trip to Trieste would be incomplete without visiting some of the most stunning landmarks of the area, if not the whole province of Friuli Venezia Giulia: The beautiful coastline has inspired emperors and artists alike, who chose to spend their time frequently near the healing sea breeze. As I’m not a pro with history I’ll spare you with too many details (which can be read on wiki anyway) and take you on a virtual tour through some amazing castles by the…

Moorea beach

*remark* Somehow it seems like my last post about Bermuda has been overlooked according to its bad statistics 🙁 Please give it a boost (later) if you missed it  – thank you 😘  *self-promotion off* If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you probably know by now that I’m a beach bum through and through……
