One year on the road, one year alone in the big amazing world, one year without a place to call home and one year full of action. How is it to live on the road? And how did I change in the process? Which were the best, and what were the worst moments?
This is more of a photo gallery than a post, but I thing pictures best describe the amazingness of this journey so enjoy.
South East Asia is just crazy, you can find everything here, and there are endless possibilities to have fun. It is mostly an up and down of your feelings – the one day you stand on top of a mountain and feel like a king, the next day you might want to die because the journey to the next city takes you the last piece of calmness and energy.

Sometimes your heart beats faster because you get the warmest greeting from a young Thai woman in a restaurant, and sometimes tuk-tuk drivers attack you because you protect people from getting scammed. But after all, you’ll have the time of your life, and I’m sure you want to come back.

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.
