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[...]

Kolkata impressions

•••
To be totally honest I didn't like Kolkata too much. It was polluted, had an impossible overload of cars on the street and the offer of stuff to do was pretty poor, I thought. Either way I thought I'd upload a few snaps I took walking around the city.

Darjeeling: living in the clouds

•••
Have you ever wondered what life would be like if it rained every day? Probably not. You probably never really got to that level of boredom.

We got to Darjeeling 3 days ago expecting romantic landscapes, Himalayan views and chilled-out cafes [...]

Ngawang: Story of a political refugee from Tibet becoming a nun in India

•••
Travel is the best time to educate yourself about what's going on in the rest of the world, it's often enough to simply keep an open mind and look at all the options out there. When I learned that it was OK to visit the Tibetan nuns in McLeod Ganj, India, I didn't hesitate to take advantage of this unique opportunity. I was eager to get to know the women the[...]

Travelettes: Tell us about your India trip so far. Tamar: I came here 2 years ago and at first I just traveled around to all sorts of places all over the country. Somew[...]

Amritsar - a different world inside a temple

•••
Amritsar came to me like eyesight to the blind. At one point during my traveling years I decided that I was not interested in temples, museums and sights in general and I regularly skipped those pages of my travel guide in favor of markets, neighborhoods and cafes which is what I enjoy and consider a better testimony of a culture as it exists in the present[...]
