As we all know by now, the transportation in SEA is not the best. This counts especially for Cambodia and Laos. Proper Motorways are non-existing, and flights are costly. I was in the north of Thailand and wanted to go to Laos. There are three possibilities to make that journey. The fastest is a flight, but the costs are around 150 euro for a 45 mins flight, and then you need a taxi to the airport and from the airport what adds even more charges. The second option is an 18 hours bus which was no option at all – uncomfortable buses, extreme bumpy roads and that for 18 hours is not fun at all. The third option is a two-day slow boat along the Mekong river from the border between Laos and Thailand to Luang Prabang. I finally decided myself for this option and paid 45 euros excluding food and accommodation for the night.
To be honest, I thought that Xi’an would be a small city near to the Huashan Mountains and the Terracotta Army and that would be all. I was wrong, completely wrong. In China there are no small cities, the city has with its urban areas nearly 10 million people and the city center is surrounded by an old city wall. As I messed something up with my trains…
In my newest Video I will show you how expensive, or should I say cheap, it is to travel to China. I visited the forbidden city, went to 3 parks around the forbidden city, ate well and slept in an 8-bed dorm room. Find out in the video how much I spent to afford all of that.
Two weeks ago, I visited Dublin with one of my best friends to have a good, and that’s what we had – a lot of fun. In last week’s post, I already gave you a guide for a perfect weekend in Dublin. In this week’s post, it’s all about the video I created over the last days. It’s the first attempt at creating videos with beautiful and helpful content for you.
Not every trip goes as planned and sometimes especially this is so magically about it because who knows how my journey would have ended otherwise. But let’s start at the beginning…
3, 2, 1 – Happy New year!! Welcome in 2018! Everyone is hugging each other, Champaign bottles are popping, it’s the beginning of a new year – all my friends are around me, our location is just fabulous, and I got all these things planned for 2018..
While studying in Dublin for an ERASMUS-Semester I had one week off – it was called study-week – but I hadn’t that much to review, and everybody left, especially the other ERASMUS-students, so I decided to fly to Madrid. Again, I flew by myself and had a fantastic time, and it was there where everything began.

And you’ll like it, that’s what I promise you! You only need to take the first step, and you’ll open yourself a whole new world. Starting to travel on my own was one of the best and most fulfilling decisions in my life. And now..
In the last two parts, I already told you some pretty good reasons to travel by yourself, in this post my last thoughts about solo traveling will be written down..
I hopefully convinced you already in the first part, that even if you’re traveling by yourself, doesn’t mean that you’ll be lonely. But there are so many more reasons why you should travel by yourself…
