Chiang Mai – How to Elephant in Thailand

Chiang Mai – How to Elephant in Thailand

Since Chiang Mai is in the North of Thailand, right by Myanmar and Laos, we naively thought that the weather situation would improve and we would get a bit of a break from the heat. We were wrong yet again. It’s even hotter than Bangkok…wait is that even...
Thailand – Outsider’s Guide to Songkran

Thailand – Outsider’s Guide to Songkran

Man, are we behind on our posts or what? I’m sorry if the quality of the posts has gone down…actually i’m not. First of all, not much to go down from and second, we have been too busy having way too much fun in Seoul. Okay, so we left off on the last...
Koh Samui – How to Island Hop in Thailand

Koh Samui – How to Island Hop in Thailand

We got lucky and arrived in Thailand during the University’s spring break. So Suin and her friends had already plan a little trip south to visit Koh Samui and of course try some delicious southern Thai food. My first reaction was to take a bus, then i was...
Ho Chi Minh City – Madness and Mayhem

Ho Chi Minh City – Madness and Mayhem

Wow, wow and wow! What an introduction to Vietnam! Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) is like an over excited child on a sugar rush, wearing bright vivid colours, shouting, dancing and dragging you by the hand to come and explore, and absolutely not taking no for an answer!...
Singapore – Reverse Culture Shock

Singapore – Reverse Culture Shock

While shopping for tickets to Thailand in Argentina, we looked at the usual sources like Expedia and Google’s ITA Matrix. And just to be thorough decided to check out Singapore Airlines, we have a bit of history and loyalty with them. The first time i flew to...
800 Days on the Road

800 Days on the Road

Today is a massive milestone for us as we cross the border to Laos! We set out with a dream nearly 5 years ago to see as much of the world as we could by car. 75,568 miles and 49 countries later we’ve lost a few pounds (weight and financial) and gained a...
Angekommen

Angekommen

Die Klimaanlage schnurrt leise vor sich hin, es ist angenehm kühl. Wir liegen in einem bequemen Bett und schauen an die hohe Decke des wunderschönen alten Hauses. Es ist ein gutes Gefühl. Wir sind zufrieden. Wir sind in Singapur angekommen. Gestern Abend haben wir...
North Thailand

North Thailand

The mountain roads in the north west of Thailand had been recommended to us, so we headed to the Myanmar border at Mae Sok and started what was to be nearly a week of stunning roads. Pretty much all were in superb condition, with endless sharp corners and steep...
The Gibbon Experience

The Gibbon Experience

Ok, we admit it. We did it – possibly the most touristy thing in Laos. The Gibbon Experience. And what a fantastic experience it was. Yes, it’s expensive: we paid $180 pp for the ‘express’ tour which is two days, with one night spent in the...
wie fährt man nach Singapur?

wie fährt man nach Singapur?

Um es vorweg zu nehmen, als Autofahrer, Overlander, Camper, Wohnmobilist bist du in Singapur nicht willkommen und sie wollen nicht, dass du dein Auto hierher fährst. Wohnmobile werden grundsätzlich nicht nach Singapur gelassen. Bevor man nach Singapur einreisen kann...
Höllenritt ins Paradies

Höllenritt ins Paradies

Wir stehen zu dritt am Fähranleger in Mersing und schauen auf eine braune Brühe, die weiße Schaumkronen trägt, der Wind bläst das Wasser in hohen Wellen mit voller Wucht gegen den Strand. Hier soll es zur Trauminsel Pulau Tioman gehen? Wir können es kaum glauben. Um...

Koh Chang du 05/02 au 19/02

Quoi de meilleur pour finir la Thaïlande que de se poser deux semaines sur une île ? Venant de Bangkok, Koh Chang n’est qu’à 8h de bus et 45 minutes de bateau, c’est donc là que nous irons. Il paraît surtout que c’est une île qui reste, malgré...
Koh Mak

Koh Mak

We split Laos into two halves, as we had some special visitors coming out to meet us in the form of Tom’s parents. A mad dash from Vientiane to Bangkok to meet them at the airport, before heading down the East coast to Koh Mak – a tiny island next to...

Cambodia – fighting for the border

We’ve been to Cambodia twice up until now. While we didn’t see much during the first visit, as we just stayed in the Koh Kong Area as Andrea was ill at first and afterwards we worked a lot, this visit was quite nice and brought us to Sianoukhville, Kep, Kampot, Cheung...
Lovely Lovely Laos

Lovely Lovely Laos

  Warning!  Not our usual chatty, flippant travel tales.  A bit more serious but stick with it and learn about the lovely people of Laos and their lives.  After leaving China through the ornate border gate and the commerce of the Chinese trading...
