Malaysian Memories

This trip happened a long long time ago. It was the summer that we graduated from school and I just can’t get my head around the fact that that’s almost three years ago. After lots of parties in London, hopping around European capitals, relaxing days in […]

Wiedermal Berlin

I just came back from a weekend in Berlin where I met some good old friends from my time in boarding school in Germany. Everyone of us has spread their wings and we are now all over the place, from Mongolia to Sweden, London to Berlin. My ex-roommate also […]

Yogyakarta and its madness

I experienced Yogya and Java in a really intense and impulsive way. I took a 23 hour night bus from Bali – a bus full of men who couldn’t speak English and one white girl travelling by herself, we battled our way through heavy rainstorms & flooded streets, […]

Lombok, Indonesia

Indonesia comprises more than 13,000 islands and Lombok is one of them. It is close to Bali and also similar in size, but it is nowhere near as touristy as Bali. Bali is crowded & busy, every single piece of free land is used for bars, […]

Ubud, Bali

Everyone knows Ubud. It’s where Julia Robert falls in love with Javier Bardem and dumps James Franco for him in Eat Pray Love. It’s about an hour away from the coast, so unlike anywhere else in Bali you don’t come here for surfing. I came to Ubud for the […]

Out and About in Hong Kong

Before heading to Bali, I stopped by Hong Kong for one night to drop off some luggage at my best friend’s house. After a crazy month of backpacking through Indonesia, I returned to HK – and this time I stayed. Traveling by myself was such an amazing […]

Little Trip to Longsheng, China

Early in the morning, we got on a bus in Guilin that took us to a bus… which took us to a bus… that took us to a bus… which finally took us up to the mountains to a place called Longsheng. It’s only 100 km away from Guilin, […]

Chinese Food Markets

This post is generally gross and revolting. S. and me had countless experiences, which left us in shock and disgust. And these food markets were quite something… I feel like there’s nothing we haven’t seen in China. Kids peeing and pooing in public, a puddle of blood on the bus, a […]
