World trip journal - flashbacks of a trip around the world.

•••
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 it'll ins[...]

Portraits from along the way: Lolo in Buenos Aires

•••
I remember very little about Lolo. It was the early in the year of 2006 and I had just arrived in Buenos Aires planning to stay there for a couple of months. Since I didnt know anyone there I contacted a few random people via myspace to find out what's happening in BA. Lolo was nice enough to invite me over for a BBQ with her and her friends one afternoon an[...]

The great American road trip: First things first

•••
As i'm sure you're aware, travel prep can be pretty  stressful, especially when you have no clue how long you'll be on the road for. Weeks? Months? The rest of your twenties? This is when, thinking about my trip, I began to realize it is not vacation: it is life. So after careful research and consideration my master plan is Not to have a master plan. Genius,[...]

Island life - tough, but someone has to do it

•••
It's time for showing off some holiday shots... Thailand has a few really great islands and whether it's beach, party or water sports you're into, all is available in plenty in places like ko tao, ko phi phi or ko samui. In my case, as I only had a short 7 days available I went to ko pha ngan for the wonderful beaches and the beach parties at night and[...]

Bangkok's Streets of Yum

•••
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 c[...]

Ko phan gan - half moon party

•••
You've probably heard of Ko phan gan and you've almost definitely heard of full-moon parties before. Arriving on Ko samui I had missed the last ferry to Ko tao and so decided to spend one night on Ko phan gan. As it turned out the bi-monthly half moon party was happening that night so together with a few others I went to check it out. Not the classiest of p[...]

Bangkok: Take me home, Khao San Road

•••
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 on Khao[...]

The Doctor Fish

•••
Arriving in Bangkok is like being in retreat wonderland. Massages, facials, pedicures, manicures, hair extensions - anything to make you more relaxed and more beautiful. While i plan to give myself the full package on my last day here next week, I could not resist but try out this "spa fish" treatment. I admit, I did it for the novelty factor, rather than th[...]

Smiling in the land of smiles

•••
Guess where I am!? Bangkok!! There sure are no bacardi breezers in India. One has to consider himself lucky to come across a bar and when you do, be sure that it closes at 10. Not such in Thailand, oh no. Any old budget hotel goes restaurant accommodation will often sport a full bar and dish up anything from beer to fancy cocktails - a heaven sent. I[...]
