This article recounts my stay in the Gili Islands, which took place before the earthquakes of past summer. The Gili Islands were temporarily closed to the tourists. From the information I found here and there, it’s now possible to go there but the islands have been severely damaged, especially Gili Trawangan. The first time I […]
Having a strong interest in traveling, I decided to leave my hometown, Paris, to travel around the world. Ayant un intérêt prononcé pour le voyage, j'ai décidé de quitter Paris, pour voyager à travers le monde.
My visit of Kuta in Bali didn’t go as planned. I was expecting a peaceful place, and I ended up with backpackers who were just thinking about getting shitfaced and having drugs. So I started wondering if it was going to be the same thing in Ubud, my next stop (in Bali as well). Fortunately, […]
“Where are you going after Singapore?” I asked the beautiful Dutch girl in front of me, in the common area of the hostel in Singapore. “I’m going to Kuta, in Bali! What about you?” “Uuuh… Me too!!!” 😀 I had absolutely no idea where to go after my visit of Singapore. Actually I knew I […]
This past summer, I had the opportunity to be invited by the Tourism Authority of South Bohemia and Czech Tourism in South Bohemia, with a few other bloggers. We had the chance to explore the region of South Bohemia in Czech Republic. And truthfully speaking, I had a great time there. Most travelers who decide to […]
I already talked about it in my article about my visit of Singapore. This city-state, located in Southeast Asia, is very different from the neighboring countries. Either the culture, the standard of living, or even the odd rules you have to follow there. Therefore I was quite disoriented, sometimes surprised and constantly with my eyes […]
Wow! I’m used to live comfortably with not that much money in Southeast Asia. Either in Laos, Vietnam or Indonesia, I just need a few euros to sleep, eat, do activities and have a beer! But it was without counting Singapore, the city state of Southeast Asia. Everything is extremely expensive compared to the neighboring […]
Malaysia is clearly the kind of country you have to go to if you want to relax. Admittedly there’s Kuala Lumpur, the capital of the country, but otherwise it’s possible to relax almost anywhere in the country. In Langkawi, you can spend some time chilling on the beach. George Town is the second largest city […]
“Where you from?” “From KL” “Huh?” “I’m from KL!” “What’s that KL???” “Kuala Lumpur!!!” “Oh sorry I didn’t know the term ‘KL’!” The first time I heard the term “KL”, from what I remember I think it was in Eastern Europe. I thought that was how cool people were calling Kuala Lumpur, the capital of […]
George Town is the capital of Penang Island, located northwest of Malaysia. I didn’t particularly want to go there but Penang Island is not far from Langkawi, where I spent a few days to relax. After doing my little research, I finally told myself “Yeah… Why not go to the capital of Penang Island, George […]
Before starting my long term solo trip, I told my friends I wanted to go to Malaysia. Whenever I was saying “Malaysia”, all the people I know who had been there already told me the same thing “Oh you’re going to Malaysia? Then you have to visit Langkawi!” And when I was asking why, usually […]
