The next destination after Chiang Mai was Hong Kong! When I was still in The Netherlands, I didn’t plan to go to Hong Kong. But plans can change during backpacking and that’s also what happened during my travel in Thailand. Instead of Laos I decided to go to Hong Kong, where a friend of mine was living at that time.
After my flight from Krabi, I arrived at my first destination in Northern Thailand: Chiang Mai. It was still pretty early when I arrived in my hostel that was, besides the man from the reception, completely empty.
After Koh Phi Phi, I decided to chill some days in Ao Nang before flying to Northern Thailand. I booked a hostel with a beautiful view which looked like a mini resort. With a pool! I did this because I ate something wrong in Koh Phi Phi, and I had lots of pain because of an injury on my shins. This resulted in me only being able to walk like a penguin. But I can’t complain about taking it slowly on a beautiful place with sun.
Last minute, we decided to go to Koh Phi Phi. I already knew it was a touristic island, but the perfect beaches with blue water where too attractive. And I have to say, after being in the beautiful but quiet Koh Lanta it was also nice to have some life again.
After Krabi it was time for my first island in Thailand: Koh Lanta! I wanted to visit a less touristic island and Koh Lanta seemed like the perfect choice.
I didn´t really feel like flying again, so I had the great idea to take the bus from Bangkok to Krabi, which took 15 hours. After not sleeping in the bus, I arrived in Krabi with lots of stickers on my shirt. You got a sticker every time you had a different bus or van, and yes. In Thailand you never know in how many different buses you are gonna be in advance.
Time for Bangkok, Thailand! Where the first thing we did was going to McDonald´s. Of course. Continue reading
After hiking in the beautiful nature of Sa Pa, it was again time for exploring the nature of Vietnam. But a little bit less active this time. With motorbikes (although I have to admit that sitting on a motor for three days in a row is a real workout for your ass)! Continue reading
Since I was 14, I wanted to go on a backpacking adventure. At the age of fourteen I was not mature enough for it. After graduating and working, I finally decided to take a moment to travel the world! The first four weeks I am exploring Vietnam with my mom, the other six weeks I am planning on visiting Thailand, Laos and maybe Singapore. Continue reading
We are all human beings, but we all look different. Every culture has his own beauty. I want to show this beauty by my photography project: International Uniqueness. In this project, I’m going to photograph people from different cultures. I do this during my erasmus study in Finland. The people who are going to be photographed, all have their own stories about their country. This project is going to be made in Oulu, Finland.
This time it’s Minzy Kim, from South Korea. Continue reading
