Live #35 – Myanmar (Bagan & Monywa)

2_video_live_updates

[26/03/2017] My last stop in Myanmar was the world famous and absolutely breath taking temple complex of Bagan. Not only is it much bigger than Cambodia’s Ankgor Wat, but it also has a very different kind of architecture. I woke up for 5 consecutive sunrises at 04:30 and even spent one night in a small temple! Monywa and it’s huge standing Buddha turned out to be a great side stop on my way to Mandalay as well.

Live #34 – Myanmar (Golden Rock & Inle Lake)

2_video_live_updates

[18/03/2017] The balancing Golden Rock in Kyaikhteeyoe was crowded with locals, but the sunrise after walking up in the night was probably the best in the country! Stopping in the capital Naypyitaw next with it’s empty 20 lane highway was a good choice as well before arriving in Kalaw to do an independent 1 day hike to famous Inle Lake.

Updated Travel Report Section

Today, I touched down in Brunei’s capital Bandar Seri Begawan and am now only 5 more countries away from my big anniversary of 100 visited countries! Setting up every destination in a chronological list, I have ticked off 95 out of 196 (48,47%) and counted the 193 United Nations countries, Holy See, Palestine as well as Kosovo. With Australia and New Zealand taking up nearly half a year from June onward, my 100th country has to wait until November and will be the Philippines!

Live #33 – Myanmar (Yangon & Hpa-An)

2_video_live_updates

[13/03/2017] Myanmar is a true gem in the South East Asian landscape. It is not overrun by tourists (yet) and hosts some of the friendliest people I have met in Asia so far. This first part features the capital Yangon, giving me a strange sensation of actually liking a city and the amazing outdoor hub Hpa-An! Oh and as everywhere in Burma, you will see a lot of Buddhas!

Live #32 – Cambodia

2_video_live_updates

[24/02/2017] Traveling through Cambodia was absolutely great! Starting off at Kep, where one of the world’s best pepper is produced, continuing to the Koh Rong Islands with amazing water and phosphorescent plankton at night and eventually ending it with the countries highlight: Ankor Wat!

(Video) Climbing Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa

[16/06/2012] Climbing 5,895m high Kilimanjaro in Africa is a great introduction to the seven summits, being a technically easy trek. The altitude is not to be underestimated though and you can see in this video how it affected us on the Lemosho route. We could even witness a big tent flying away into the vast African plains, providing a rather unusual sight. Read the rest of this entry »

Live #31 – Thailand (Ton Sai, Rei Leh & Phra Nang)

2_video_live_updates

[16/02/2017] Amazing Thailand has still so much to offer aside the touristic hot spots! This video covers the arrival in Ao Nang, climber’s paradise Ton Sai near Rei Leh, wild camping on a complete empty Phra Nang Beach & a last amazing sunset overlooking the Phang Nga Bay before leaving the country again. I will be back for sure!

Travel Costs #01 incl. Country Statistics!

Here is a first update from my Travel Costs, including everything until today! Back in my original post about general travel costs and how to travel cheaply, I actually included all the future upcoming flights into the statistics. This has now been fixed and the following stats only count every expense until today and nothing that is booked ahead, reflecting the current daily cost a bit more accurate. I have also added a breakdown of the average costs for all the countries in detail.

Live #30 – Thailand (Phuket & Ko Yao Noi)

2_video_live_updates

[10/02/2017] Thailand is not such a loved vacation destination for many without a reason. This video covers my arrival in Phuket, the new baby cat friend I have made and the awesome Island of Ko Yao Noi; which is, for some reason, not yet overcrowded with tourists!

Live #29 – Singapore

2_video_live_updates

[07/02/2017] Before entering Thailand, I have made a quick stop in the “fine” city of Singapore! You could get a big fine for crossing the street without green light or drinking water on the train- both of which I have done repeatedly. There is not too much to see here, but the Marina Bay Sands building and downtown is certainly worth checking out!
