Monthly living costs in Chiang Mai, Thailand

I know, such posts can be a bit dull at times, but when preparing an extended trip or to live abroad this information  can come in handy. As we are in Chiang Mai now for about one and a half months we are not the complete authority, but we start to get a picture. With...

Chiang Mai – welcome to the digital nomad capitol

Remember the post I wrote some time ago? The Don’t plan too much ahead one? Well, I think our experience in Chiang Mai is a good example for what I wrote back then. Our original plan (find the mistake) was to drive all the way along the border of Thailand first to the...
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...
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...
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...
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...

Chiang Mai du 24/01 au 02/02

Pour ce trajet, pas question de prendre un bus inconfortable avec chauffeur mal aimable et horaires non respectés. Nous optons pour le train couchette même s’il nous faut attendre 3 jours pour les billets. S’il y a autant de monde c’est que ça doit...

Besuch in Thailand

Nach einigen Einladungen klappt es dann doch noch, meine Eltern kommen nach Thailand um uns zu besuchen. Es ist etwas Besonderes, natürlich haben wir immer wieder einmal ein Wochenende in den Bergen, zum Wandern oder Skifahren zusammen verbracht, aber mit Mama und...
