If you have been to Asia before, or are planning on going, the elephant experience is probably high on your list of activities to do. Before you explore elephants in Asia, you should be aware that this is a very “dirty” industry where most places are not treating the elephants any good, unfortunately the demand from tourists are so high, that this places keep racing unhappy miss-treated elephants. It might look like they are “happy” they are overall not. Thankfully there are several sanctuaries through out Thailand that take care of miss-treated, sick or old elephants, we went to an ethical sanctuary here in Phuket, and it made me happy to see happy elephants.


 



Hi lovelies, this trip of mine have been non stop the last two weeks, so I finally managed to take some time to sit down a update the blog, I guess it is a combination of enjoying travelling to much, pore internet and laziness that makes it harder to keep up to date.

The last 10 days we have made our way from Krabi (mainland) to the famous Phi Phi Islands and Koh Lanta. Krabi is a good spot to make your way out to the beautiful Islands of the Andaman sea, some of the best snorkelling in Thailand, a few days on mainland including some day trips we went to Phi Phi. My friend from Norway came to meet us in Krabi, so it as been a bit more night activity for us the last weeks, which Phi Phi is great for. The party never stops, fun for a few nights, but it is very commercial, even in the low season. Koh Lanta was very nice a calm, which was perfect after some busy days on Phi Phi, just exploring the Island by scooters. We are slowly making our way back to Bangkok, a few more exiting stops on the way.

Much love from Thailand

 

We are in Krabi on our way to Koh Lanta and several other little islands further south of Thailand.

We made our way to Koh Chang with bus from Cambodia, followed by mini van, tuktuk another tuktuk ferry and then a final tuktuk to our resort. Koh Chang is very hilly and green, with many waterfalls for you to discover. However Koh Chang and the north of Thailand has the most rain during rain season, so we experienced some crazy weather the last few days.

On Koh Chang you are best off getting a motorbike and go explore the island on your own, much more fun and much more affordable than taxi cars. We went to see two different waterfalls during our four days on the island, due to the rain the waterfalls are absolutely best this time of year.

Hi Lovelies

I’m currently travelling a bit of South East Asia, Cambodia, Thailand and maybe Vietnam, all three amazing countries with loads of culture and beautiful things to see and do. All though we are out and about a lot, we also spend some hours on the beach, swimming, reading, usual beach activities. Though it is rain season, and a bit more cloudy, you still get UV damage and sunburnt if you don’t watch out.

Sunscreen can be a saviour but also a killer, unfortunately almost all the big brands that produce sunscreen today are full of nasty chemicals, that can actually cause more damage to your health and skin, than by not using protection. I think this is such a shame, as the the whole point of protection yourself is then gone..

Thankfully there are some safer brands out there, you might have to pay a little bit more, but at least your skin is safe, which is what should come first.

The brands that I choose to use are also not tested on animals which is one of the first things I look for for when buying products.

Another part of my sun safe routine is taking extra care of my hair and face, using a good quality hair oil everyday and a good quality face oil.

Hope you are taking some measures when you are out playing in the sun beautiful people

Good morning from Thailand, Koh Chang.

The last week has been spent in the capital of Cambodia; Phnom Penh and a small remote Island called Koh Rong Samloem, we made it to Koh Chang in Thailand last night, after 12h of travelling on bus- mini bus – tuktuk – ferry and another tuktuk, finally arriving at the hotel.


PHONM PENH

 

Phnom Penh turned out to be nicer than expected, it is a bit of a busy big city, as Cambodia is a pore country, you can also see this in the quality of buildings, rubbish everywhere, and general lifestyle, however I liked it much more than expected. We visited the S21 prison and the killing fields, killing fields are located all around Cambodia, but the biggest one is the one in the capital. It is a really devastating part of newer Cambodian history, it is a must do when going to Cambodia.


KOH RONG SAMLOEM

 

Koh Rong Samloem was a really nice little Island, pretty empty, as it it low season now. Despite that we had really nice weather, just enjoyed laid back island life for a few days, doing nothing. I did really like the island, however I do prefer the islands of Thailand.

I´m currently in Phnom Penh, watching the crazy afternoon rain pore. It has been raining every afternoon, around 4-5pm, which is very refreshing, a good excuse to just have a drink, do some computer work, read a book, or simply watch the rain pore.

As promised I have some more photos from our day at the temples in Siem Reap, Jens loves taking photos, so the camera is always with us. I absolutely recommend doing several temples around Siem Reap, best way is to get a driver for the day, a so called tuk-tuk driver, he waits for you, know where to take you and you can also get some sightseeing from just sitting on the tuk-tuk.

More updates coming soon

Hi beautiful people, hope you are well.

We are currently in Cambodia, which has so far been great. It has taken a few days to get acclimatised, as it is very tropical here at this time of year. Summer in Asia is very hot, wet and humid, so you sweat non stop. All though it is rain season and you would think it rains all the time, we have only had a bit of rain in the late afternoon, which is great, as it cools everything down a bit.


SIEM REAP 

The first stop on our Cambodia trip was Siem Reap, where you find the famous Ankor Wat temple, and hundreds of surrounding temples, having some knowledge about the history of it all makes it much more interesting. We found Ankor Wat beautiful, but actually several of the smaller temples where more interesting. Our hotel is about 10 min drive from the city centre (which is a pretty small centre). Our hotel is a great little oasis, amazing staff, beautiful pool area and amazing rooms.

I will do a separate blog post sharing more amazing temple photos with you guys, just got to get them sorted first.


A FEW SNAPSHOTS FROM THE LAST FEW DAYS


Tomorrow we are getting on a bus for about 7h, making our way to the capital city Phnom Penh. Phnom Penh is supposed to be very busy and dirty, so we only have two nights there. We really want to experience the Killing Fields, it is such an important part of the Cambodian history.

GOODBYE SYDNEY


We are on our way to Cambodia, all we have left are two backpacks full of easy Summer clothes, ending our time here just how it started, as two exited travellers, on a mission to explore, discover and enjoy.

I thought it was suitable to share one last outfit post from Sydney, taken at one of my absolute favourite places; by the rock cliffs down by the ocean in the eastern suburbs.

Speak soon from Cambodia

Tasmania have been an amazing end to my time here in Australia, and if you ever make it down under, it should be on your list of places to see.

We spent 5 nights in total, in three different locations. Still so much more to see, but if you have limited time, like we did, better choose a few stops, over seeing everything.
