Enjoy travel stories by our friends and us

In the travel section we publish stories and articles about our travels, but also tips and tricks. We talk about the gear we use and the jobs we can get to earn the necessary cash for travelling. About the pitfalls and the peaks of the nomad period in your life.

This is, you could say, our travel blog.

You have two options to discover our stories. Either you start reading one of our favourites down there and follow the occasional link, or you look up our phenomenal archive of travel stories.

How I came to Asia again - via Hong Kong, the greatest metropolis I know so far.

The Mighty Mekong

The Mekong is a great river that origins somewhere in China and makes it"s way through Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam.

While I first met the "Old Father" in Xishuangbanna (Yunnan Province, China), the vast Mekong Delta is right here, not far away from Saigon. Read a travel review of a very nice one day tour to Cai Be and Cai Lay, towns in the picturesque Mekong Delta of Vietnam!

Dinh Cau and the Night Market

If you happen to travel to Phu Quoc Island in Vietnam, check out Dinh Cau, also called the Cau Temple in Duong Dong town. It is a really nice destination to visit, watch the sun set over the Gulf of Thailand and snap some travel pictures.

Afterwards, check out the night market near Dinh Cau and sample the local seafood dishes. It's a little weird, but delicious if you happen to be an adventurous eater. Of course, if you prefer not to ingest sea urchins or sea cucumbers, stir-fried with locally produced fish sauce, you can always opt for a plate of clams to be on the safe side.

The Imperial City of Hue

The world heritage city of Hue was the last capital of the old monarchy in Vietnam and high seat of the Nguyen dynasty. Not only that Hue is stunningly beautiful, also the professional attitude towards tourism impressed me.

Holiday in Da Lat

In my opinion, Da Lat is one of the most beautiful places in Vietnam. While not as clean and professional as Da Nang or Hue, the climate and picturesque setting of Da Lat on the Langbiang plateau makes it the perfect honeymoon location.
