Bangkok

I’m pretty sure that every blogpost I ever wrote about Thailand and Bangkok in particular was essentially just one big lovefest. It’s true that the most popular of destinations in Asia is simply always guaranteed to provide a good time, pretty much regardless of weather, company or budget. It’s a bit like a disneyland for adults with fun people, amazing food, stimulating culture, great nightlife, incredible beaches – and trust …

I love Bangkok. It’s easily one of my favorite cities of all time and the type of place I love coming back to again and again. Bangkok was the first stop on my one year trip around the world back in 2005. Like any 23 year old backpacker I headed straight for Khao San Road, home of the budget traveler, haven for banana pancakes and $5 hotel rooms. The very …

When most people think about accommodation in Bangkok, they think about a backpackers on Khaosan Road. After all it was The Beach that put them on the map for most and which girl wouldn’t put up with thin walls and crummy sheets if it increases the chance of finding her personal Richard. However sometimes a girl just wants to feel like a princess, with or without the prince.
At least that’s …

After returning from my recent trip to Thailand, people asked what my highlight was. It was definitely different from my first trip to the country of smiles and Pad Thai noodles, all three years ago (wow, time flies!). My new answer was Bangkok. The capital city it was this time! I know we’ve been going on about our love for Bangkok before, but Thailand gets a lot of love from …

A wonderful way of spending time in a 3rd-world country is by doing volunteer work. Countries like Bolivia, India, Cambodia, Ghana or Mexico require a lot of developmental help and you have what it takes to give them that help. Because you are smart, caring and a wonderful role model for all those who will profit from your support.
During my world trip in 2005 I knew I wanted to do …

I knew it would happen, it was inevitable. As I had mentioned before, I definitely hadn’t faced the reality of the extent of my trip and it all just seemed like a dream that would never be fully undertaken… until I peeped out the plane window and was faced with an alien Thai landscape. Then it hit me: the inevitable fear. Cue a mini stroke with the cold hand of …

When in September 2005 I embarked on a trip around the world I left with great plans and ambitions. To let all my friends at home know how I was getting on and about all the stuff that happened to me along the way I would email them – first regularly, then more and more scarcely. I will publish those emails here for you guys to hear my story. Maybe …

When visiting certain Asian countries, travel guides often warn about the potential dangers of eating off the street. While I can very much confirm this to be true in India, in Thailand I’ve never heard of any problems. Luckily, because eating off the street belongs to the highlight of any day spent in this gorgeous country.
With Bangkok as the culinary centre of street stall diversity, I’ve snapped away, to show …

One night in Bangkok
Bangkok can be an awful lot of fun. Tons of young people all ready to party their pants off. In my case I made a fun German friend – Simone – on the bus from the airport and together with Dutch fella Nick the 3 of us headed out for a night of exessive drinking, dancing, and people-meeting. To give you hints of what a night out …
