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.

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.

Much love from the tropics

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.

Jens and I are in Tasmania, a small Island that belongs to Australia, and we have not had wifi for several days, pretty amazing.

Just wanted to check in, with a little travel update. We have three main destinations to visit here in Tasmania, Ill give you a good update on all of them in a new post in a few days. In the mean time I´m going to enjoy a few more days of beautiful nature, before we have a few last nights in Sydney; then Australia adventures is over for this time..

Over the easter weekend Jens and I went up the coast with some friends, such a beautiful day spent out of the busy city. I honestly can´t wait to live a bit more secluded and closer to nature again, I love city life but I think I love nature life even more in the long run.

For easter we drove up Central Coast and to Lake Macquarie. As we planned it a bit last minute a few of the activities we wanted to do was unfortunately booked out, but we still made it a fun day.

One of our stops was a park area that is surrounded by wild Kangaroos and they love interacting with humans, especially when we come with bananas. I love seeing animals in the wild, as that is where they should be.

How cute is this little one?

Have a lovely week people, getting back to normal after some easter fun

I´m feeling the urge to move, explore and venture new places. My hearth is beating fast for  new adventure. A little change. A big change. I´m restless, impatient and hungry for more. Seeking change and surprise, more challenge and less routine.
My soul dies if standing still for to long.

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend

 

Honestly, when do you really go out and explore and venture your own city?

Probably not nearly enough. Just walking around, taking it all in. Appreciating your surroundings. I do not do it often enough, somehow life just gets in the way of it all. You have your routines, work, exercise, friends, family. We stick to the places we know and feel comfortable at, what we are used to.

Jens and I went on a little adventure last weekend, Saturday we spent down in the oldest part of Sydney, The Rocks, opposite the Opera house, and its really nice. Almost the only place where you find really old original buildings, just watching the harbour bridge from underneath it is pretty cool, and not to forget walking across it to the other side, seeing the beautiful harbour from a different perspective.

I think Sydney is one of the most beautiful big cities I´ve ever seen, the harbour is just breathtaking. I know there are so many beautiful cities around the world, that is much more beautiful than Sydney, when it comes to actually construction and buildings. The reason I found Sydney so beautiful, is because of the amazing balance of “big city life” with all its nature surroundings, coast line and how all the suburbs away from the CBD has really great venues (shops, cafes, pubs, restaurants) for all kinds of people.
