My Travel Playlist

Whenever I travel, I like to listen to these songs – especially on during take-off and landing, because I get nervous easily, so this playlist helps me relax, shut off from noise and enjoy my time above the clouds. Continue Reading

Travels Thailand

Koh Tachai

Honestly, this is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to. Without even having touched ground on the island, I was already stoked from far away by it’s crazy blue water color. And then, when I was about to put my legs on the sand and take my first steps on the beach with its soft powdery sand, I realized that this is not a dream and I’ve actually found paradise.

Ko Lanta · Impressions

After a few days of island-hopping in the area of Krabi, we headed South to relax on the beautiful island of Ko Lanta for three days. We both wished to stay a few more days, but unfortunately I had already planned and booked everything ahead, so we had to move on. One thing is absolutely certain: I’ll come back! Tourism hasn’t reached this island so far and the many beach bars and restaurants alongside beach Klong Khong have this unique flair and offer stunning sunset views. Enough talking, you can see the beauty of this island (or at least the part that I visited) for yourselves in this blog post!

Bangkok · Travel Guide

Happy New Year everyone! After a few months of pause, I am finally back with a new post about Thailand, starting with Bangkok. As I’ll be traveling in Southeast Asia the whole month of February, I thought a post about Bangkok would be the perfect start into the new year. And since Bangkok will be my last stop in February, you can expect a sort of a revision of this post in March.

For many of us, Thailand is THE place to be during winter and honestly, I get it: delicious food, beautiful sights, crazy island hopping tours and amazing weather conditions – everything a traveler’s heart desires. I’m half Thai and I visit my family in Thailand every two to three years, so I like to start every trip with a few days in Bangkok to get used to the temperature and humidity. This post will cover all my favorite places in Bangkok – where to shop, where to eat, what to do and where to stay.

Oslob · Whale shark watching

I came across Christan Leblanc’s Youtube channel when I was doing some travel research in December. He was traveling around in Asia for a few months and also in the Philippines. His daily vlogs were really helpful for my journey, also the one from the whale sharks in Oslob. Whale sharks are the biggest sharks and fish in the ocean, but don’t worry, they only eat plankton 🙂

Siquijor Island

I think this island has much more to offer than I’ve actually seen on my daytrip. I only had a few hours to visit the main “sights” on Siquijor Island, but it was enough to convince me that this island is a little paradise. Amongst Filipinos, Siquijor Island is known as a mystic island, that is sometimes also referred to as “Witch Island”. Before I went there, I had heard that there were healers and people who practice voodoo. So, I didn’t exactly know what to expect of the island and its inhabitants.

Kalanggaman Island

Good morning everybody!

It’s time for another blog post and this one will be about the beautiful island – one of my favorite destinations on the Philippines – Kalanggaman Island. I did an island tour to Kalanggaman Island in the beginning of Febuary. Since then, I can’t get this amazing place out of my head. White sand, cristal blue water and palmtrees… everything you need to sit back and relax. Plus, tourism hasn’t reached this place so far. So hurry and visit this island if you’re in the area!

Malapascua Island

Good morning guys!

This beautiful little paradise north of Cebu Island was my first destination on my trip. I stayed there for 4 nights in a small bungalow next to the beach. On Malapascua Island, tourists and inhabitants live side by side. This is the perfect occasion to get to know the people who live there and hear their stories. One of those stories being the typhoon that hit the island in 2013. The island and its people are slowely recovering, but tourism – as their main source of income – is back to normal. Malapascua island doesn’t have any concrete roads and beaches are easily accessible on foot within a few minutes – that’s something special I’ve only seen on Malapascua Island.

Traveling in the Philippines

When I booked my flight to the Philippines in October 2015 it was just because I found a cheap flight without knowing what this beautiful country has to offer. My boyfriend and I then started researching, watching youtube videos and looking for images and places on Instagram – and oh my gosh, I was so looking foward to coming to the Philippines. We had a rough plan about where we wanted to go: first Cebu Island’s surrounding area and then Palawan Island. After two months I found out that – according to Condé Nast Travelerreaders – Palawan Island is the most beautiful island in the world and also Cebu is listed on rank 19. I didn’t have any expactations because I just wanted to flee from the cold and grey weather in Europe, get a nice tan and eat heaps of fruits. And after five months of waiting, the adventure finally began.
