Many people have asked me why I travel to Asia more often than any other continent or region in the world. There’s not really a single answer to it.
I like the weather, the food, the people and the adventures and experiences you can have there.
In 2015 I did a Contiki tour called the “Asian Aventure“. I met many awesome people from around the globe on the tour and made a great new friend. There where parties, of course, but the main reason why I loved this tour so much – besides making new friends – were the places we visited and the experiences we had. We went to the North of Thailand, Laos and Cambodia.
Lets take the following photo for instance:
Have you every imagined waking up very early in the morning in a small village in Laos (“Pakbeng”). Going down to a small pier to catch a “slow boat” on the Mekong river even before the sun has fully risen ? 10 years ago I woudn’t even dreamed about it.
We also explored the amazing Angkor Wat and the other temples in Cambodia where one of the Tomb Raider movies was filmed.
There’s even a cocktail named after Lara Croft in one the bars in Siem Reap. 😉
I’ll definitely come back, because 2 days are not enough to see all the temples in this huge national park.
Or in 2012:
I took a strawl though Bangkok and suddenly found this place. One of the many stores and venues with such a funny “In your face” name. You’ll find bars, restaurants, massage parlours and many other places with this very direct marketing. It makes me giggle. Every time.
In 2016 I went back to Thailand to visit some of the Islands in the west. (Koh Samui, Koh Phangan, Koh Tao).
We also took a day trip to this paradise like island:
