A YEAR IN REVERSE

Thank you, 2018; Watch out, 2019!   Once again, the new year is knocking at our door, which means it’s time again — time for reflection. The last year ended with a tan, a backpack full of souvenirs from Indonesia and a broken heart. In some ways, you can say that I was at my lowest back then. I had a severe burn-out, no time and energy left for my close...

Altai Siberia

WHAT TO PACK FOR YOUR TRIP TO THE ALTAI REGION IN SIBERIA

  “Isn’t it freezing cold there?”   As soon as I told my friends and family I was planning a trip to Siberia, their reactions were immediate and identical: “Isn’t it freezing cold there?” Well, here’s a fun fact: although it does drop to -40 °C in the winter, Siberia is not cold all the time. In fact, the summers are very hot, with temperatures soaring to...

How to keep your health in check while traveling

No one wants to fall ill during a fun trip, but every frequent traveler has probably dealt with this at least once. A few nights of severe cramps, spiking fever, or insane back pain?

Nusa Islands Bali

HOW TO MAKE THE MOST OF THE NUSA ISLANDS IN INDONESIA

NUSA ISLANDS IN INDONESIA The Nusa Islands – Nusa Ceningan, Nusa Penida and Nusa Lembongan – are three  small islands just below Bali in Indonesia. Here, you can experience beautiful beaches, bright blue waters, rugged cliffs, soothing quietness and a super relaxed island vibe. These islands were absolutely my favorite part of Bali. We stayed a short five days, but...

Nusa Islands Impulsive travel

The pleasure of impulsive travel

Get up with the sun and to the sound of the waves. It is a dream. And you know what makes it even better? Sitting side by side to figure out what the day will bring. This is precisely what my partner at the time and I did when we  impulsively decided to go to Indonesia for almost a month. This trip truly gave us the sense of freedom we craved. Here’s how everything...

Laos Backpacking

LAOS: A BACKPACKER’S PARADISE

Backpacker’s Paradise When I was just 21, I went backpacking in Asia for the very first time — and it was fantastic. After a few enriching weeks in Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam, my eyes were wider and my life seemed fuller. The last leg of my tour was Laos. Laos is a lesser known destination in Southeast Asia, but as you already know, I’m totally a fan...
