To be honest, I think that insects, scorpions, and worms are the nutrition of the future. Without going too much into detail – To produce one Kilogram of insects a lot less water food and CO2 emissions are produced. Thinking about the fact that meat production is one of the biggest reasons for climate change I would welcome this idea. Besides, insects need a lot less space and have more proteins than meat.
Cambodia is expensive – yes it may be located in southeast Asia, but it is the most expensive country I visited until now. Why? What I heard is that the Chinese invest so much in this country located next to Vietnam and Thailand, so the prices rise steadily. Another reason might be that everything is paid in USD and often a coke or a beer cost 1 USD while it may cost 60 cents in Vietnam. These costs add up quickly. This day was indeed still a cheat day; there were some days I spent over 70 euros. Just an example is Angkor Wat – the entrance price is 37 USD, and you need either a tuk-tuk or a bicycle for which you also have to pay – it was the most expensive attraction in 3 months traveling.
I spent 2 days on Koh Rong and 2 more days in Koh Rong Sanloem,…
I had only one day in Kampot and decided to sleep in the Arcadia Hostel,…
This day was so much fun! I rented a bicycle and drove to the Duck Stop, and the Farm Stay in Phong Nha and had an amazing day. For 150.000 VND (5,6 Euro) I could feed the ducks, ride a Buffalo and got food at the end. I definitely had the most fun in the duck cage. They ate from my hands, from my feet, I was the “duck leader,” and I let fly a duck into the water. To end the day, I went to see the sunset at the Farmstay with a good beer and fresh fruits.
This Video is a bit different, I was just amazed at how great the streets in Ha Giang on the loop are that I created a video with the best driving scenes. In the four days we did one mountain pass after the other, hill up hill down – amazing views and one 180 degrees curve after the other. It was so much fun to ride the streets even if they were sometimes in terrible conditions.
The 4-day motorbike trip through the north of Vietnam was such an amazing experience. We had a semi-automatic bike and drove 400 km in 4 days to make a loop and arrive again in Ha Giang. On the third day, we did the most dangerous road in Vietnam. A path only 70 cm wide and on the side, it went down for 400 meters. So basically one wrong move would cost you your life. My body was full of adrenaline, but I’m happy that I did it because it was such an amazing adventure and everything went well.
The Island Cat Ba, where I stayed for a few days is the perfect place to start a boat tour to Halong Bay. I went with the company “Cat Ba Ventures” which was the right choice. After swimming, we had lunch on the boat, went kayaking and swimming again. To finish the day we watched the sunset from the boat while driving back to Cat Ba. Here is the Video from the day tour.
A day in Hongkong and then partying Halloween there was amazing. We bargained to get cheap souvenirs and had a nice party. Mr. Wong’s was definitely the highlight, but also the party in the club was good.
In Macau, I was doing the first time couch surfing, and I had a really good time. The Hotels are so expensive, and everything is expensive in this country. However, I managed it to stay in my budget and to have a great time at the same time.
