Singapore

My last episode of this awesome almost eight-month journey though diverse countries in Asia ended in Singapore. First, I didn’t even want to visit Singapore because I thought it is to artificial and not typical Asian. But then I got a really cheap flight back home from there so I decided to stay for four…

Siem Reap – Cambodia

I made it to Siem Reap, Cambodia after a super long journey and some troubles by bus. First the border took really long because they charged more for the visa than they were supposed to. Cambodia, like some other Asian countries as well, is known for corruption and I experienced it the very first minute…

Chiang Mai – Thailand

Thailand as I think one of the most popular tourist destinations for at least European tourist was my next destination. I have never been there before. First, I thought about visiting the islands but the time would have been to short for that. I would have needed to skip Cambodia or another of the countries…

Syttende Mai in Oslo – Norway

The syttende mai is a national holiday in Norway and most of the people dress up in the traditional clothing of their hometown. It is fascinating to see people being proud of their origins and celebrating their country in such a happy way. I visited Oslo with my exboyfriend who has relatives in Norway two…

Nikko – Japan

Nikko is a cute little town around an hour by train and then bus from Tokyo. Perfect for a daytrip. I heard of the ton of beautiful temples in this town and the beautiful mountain nature around it. That is what brought me there and Nikko held what it promised. I don’t know why, but…

Bali – Indonesia

Bali, the main center for digital nomads, wanderers, travelers, globetrotter and people from all over the world to calm down and find their inner center. I know, so many people posted about Bali, spend time there and I always thought it lost its myth due to tourism. Yes, you will meet a hell a lot…

Jawa – Indonesia

The first vacation while being in China lead us to Indonesia. By us I mean two guys, a girl I met on exchange and whom became one of my best friends I shared multiple trips with and me. I already posted some short and longer trips throughout China. They where not in the right order…

Macau – China

The “Las Vegas” of China, that is what Macau is also known for. I’m not much into gambling, so I just played on a few slot machines, but some of our guys really got into it. Anyway, even if like me you are not into gambling, it is still worth a visit if you are…

Shenzhen – China

Since I have spent five months on exchange in Shenzhen this is going to be a longer post. Retrospective I tried to summarize the different experiences I made. The whole time I went through ups and downs, loving and hating the Chinese culture at the same time. I wouldn’t say I went though culture shock…

Hong Kong

On the 11th of August 2016 a very important journey started for me. I was on the way to an exchange semester in Shenzhen, China due to my master’s degree. Since Shenzhen borders with Hong Kong a few of the exchange students decided to spent a couple of days in Hong Kong before the semester…
