Ah, Koh Chang! Here you are surrounded by green and lush vegetation on steep mountains and will be greeted by monkey’s on the trees. Koh Chang is one of Thailand’s largest Islands with several beaches and resort districts along the coast. We stayed in the region called Hat Tha Nam which also known as “Lonely Beach” amongst the tourists. During the peak season this area is packed with backpackers who seek beach and party holidays but during the off peak season it is astonishingly quiet and very affordable to enjoy this little corner of paradise. And of cause you need a great place to stay whilst you are visiting Lonely Beach, so check out the Sea Flower Resort Bungalows with me…

Who said it’s hard to find vegetarian and vegan food whilst travelling? I guess it’s true in some countries but this is not the case on Lonely Beach on Thailand’s island Koh Chang! Almost every single restaurant in Lonely Beach I walked into offered vegetarian and even vegan dishes! Well, once you asked them to omit the egg and fish sauce that is 🙂 One of the many restaurants that offered a huge variety of delicious vegan and vegetarian Thai dishes was CafĂ© del Sunshine…

There are so many treasures to discover and things to do in Paris. The beauty is that most of the main attractions such as the Louvre, Notre Dame, the Eiffel Tower and the countless picturesque bridges of Paris are in plain view when cycling along the river Seine. Walking the distance would be a whole day event and result in very hurtful feet [I tried it and gave up at the Pont Alexandre III!] Thankfully you can see and reach all these main attractions in no-time with Paris’s public bicycle sharing system which is called Verlib! Super easy to use and to rent out! Find out how the bicycle sharing system works and pedal along the Seine to see the beauty of Paris with me…

The biggest expense you have when travelling on a budged is the accommodation and therefore I decided to share with you two guest houses, one we stayed in and the other we contemplated about. We stayed in the infamous Ubud in Bali for almost 6 weeks because it truly was a relaxing and culturally lovely region in Bali just as Elizabeth Gilbert described in her beautiful and witty book “eat, pray and love”. Check out these simple, affordable and great guesthouses with me…

Ho Chi Minh [former Saigon] is my absolute favorite city to date in terms of finding delicious vegan and vegetarian food!!! There is an abundance of little vegan and vegetarian restaurants hidden in the middle of the infamous “Motorbike City”. One of them is called “Healthy Farm” and they even offer a little “Vegan Supermarket” in the back! Come and check out this little gem with me…

The Speicherstadt is located in the city of Hamburg and known to be a major port city in North Germany. It is something to behold as this is the only location in the world where you will find a 130 years old “city” made out of warehouses which has been build on top of water! Come and check out one of Hamburg’s most visited Tourist attractions and one of UNESCOS World Heritage Sites…
