First impressions of South America (Mexico)

After a quick stop in Luxembourg, I’m back on the road. This time it’s the other side of the continent, Mexico and later the rest of South America. As you can imagine, it’s again a different world compared with Europe and Asia. But after being such a long time in Asia and spending the rest of my life in Europe, it’s super interesting to compare the three continents to each other and give you some inside about my first thoughts about south America.

India in Monsoon

Why you shouldn’t visit India in Monsoon season

Should I visit a country in the rainy season or not? That’s always a hard question, and you can be lucky and have a fantastic time for lower prices, but sometimes it’s a big waste of time. Some countries are worth visiting in Rainy season like Myanmar or even Thailand, but some countries are not advisable, and that’s the case for India.

First impressions India

2 weeks in India – a first impression

India really is a country of contradictions – you have to super friendly people who want to rip you off on every possible occasion as well, chaos everywhere but also bureaucracy everywhere, and the fantastic food which can make you sick any moment. It is not easy to travel in India, and it isn’t for sure a destination for a first time Backpacker. But once you get used to some things, pay attention to others and have some travel experience you can have an amazing time here. The following is my impression after two weeks in India.

Dhaka

Bangladesh – Maybe a little too much of an adventure

I wanted the adventure, I wanted the experience, and I wanted to get to know a country not many people know. I thought that it can’t be that bad and that it’s going to be a fantastic time.
Reality hit pretty fast, precisely after two days. I traveled 10 months before and never got a culture shock – Bangladesh gave it finally to me. I feel sorry for the lovely people in this country, but I think the truth has to be told even if it’s not positive. The country is simply not ready for tourists, especially not for solo backpackers on a budget. Here are the reasons I think it’s not yet time to visit Bangladesh.
