Mt. Fuji Day Trip

My day trip to Mt. Fuji aka Fujisan Good weather is key for the vest Mt.Fuji view. That's why I decided only the evening before after checking the weather forecast for Mt. Fuji to go. This meant waking up at 6 am to catch a train from Shinjuku station. I paid 2319 yen...

Tips for planning your Japan travels: Book your flights early (unless you are a last minute person), I use www.momondo.com I booked a Premium Economy seat via British Airwyas which did cost more but was absolutely worth it on an almost 13 hour long direct flight. Book...

Travel essentials will make or break your journey

Having cash and important documents is all that matters while travelling. I once didn't check if I have all the travel essentials and it could have gone really wrong. Last years I had just arrived in Siem Reap and had to fill out a visa application. Sadly, I didn't...

Deceleration

It has been a while since I posted. I have been living the last 3 weeks as if I am racing against time. After 3 weeks on Koh Lanta, I suddenly felt as if I'm running out of time and found myself spending not more than 4 nights at each place. I hopped to Langkawi,...

Gratitude Exercise

Before I started my travels I considered many possible scenarios that might appear: that I might feel lonely and homesick, miss my family and friends, that I might get stressed about things even if they are tiny, that I might not achieve my goal of letting go and...

Wireless speaker on the go

I am a big Libratone fan. I had the Libratone Zipp Mini at home, which I loved but it was with it's the weight of 1.5 Kg to heavy. I choose to travel with the Libratone Too which I find with it's 599 Gramm still too heavy but compared to all the other speakers it has...

Bangkok by Cab/Taxi or Bike with Driver

The asian equivalent to Uber is Grab. And Grab doesn’t only let you order a cab/taxi. You can also order a bike (and yes there is a driver with this bike), you just hop on the back. It costs from Ratchathewi shopping malls district to Khaosan Road 35 Baht, a Grab...

Bangkok by boat

Another option that is totally worth checking out is the boats that run in the canals. Fares depend on the length on your journey (I paid 9.50 Baht from the Ratchathewi district with all the shopping malls to stop Phanfa Bridge which is a 10 min walk from Khaosan...

Bus from Bangkok Airport

You can get for 60 baht in the air-conditioned S1 bus from Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) to the old quarter, backpacker hub Khaosan Road and the Sanam Luang royal field, it takes 45-60 minutes to get there. Once you exit from the baggage claim hall into the arrivals hall...

Choosing a backpack

It is totally up to you what your body is worth to you. For me, it was very important to buy a backpack that feels good to carry even with 15 Kilos on my back since I have back problems. 15 kilos are easily achieved with technical equipment such as laptop, hard...
