From Sukhumvit to Khao San

April 7, 2017
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.…

Hello Hanoi!

March 31, 2017

Hanoi, Vietnam in March: I’m desperately cleaning my feet with the last piece of tissue because I thought wearing sandals on the wet, dirty streets was a good idea. I switched back to my chucks. It’s been the first day of my vacation and I couldn’t wait to change into my summer clothes as soon as possible.

New York City Fall Edition

November 25, 2016

Oops I did it again! I went to NYC the third time this year! Nope I’m not rich, I only got super cheap tickets each time (if you’re wondering) 😛 After spring and summer I experienced how autumn/fall is like in the Big Apple and it’s challenging all the other seasons for being my favourite. Why? Because if these cool things:…
