3 days in Bangkok

Bangkok! I don’t even need to introduce Bangkok to you! It’s the capital of Thailand and… what a capital! ALL the travelers/backpackers/tourists I met in Southeast Asia, either in Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia or elsewhere… stopped by Bangkok. Sometimes just for a day, sometimes for a few days but everyone stopped by this city! Bangkok is […]

Inle lake boat tour

Inle Lake is, like Bagan, a major tourist destination in Myanmar. In fact, Inle Lake is a big lake located in the center of the country, at altitude and surrounded by mountains. The water is shallow there. On the lake, there are floating villages, which means houses on stilts are there. The people living there […]

Damn, it’s been a while! I almost forgot how it felt! In Mandalay, a lot of people greeted me in the street and smiled at me! I’m a star, like in Uzbekistan! I was thinking about the things to do in Mandalay but as soon as I arrived, I noticed many locals were staring at […]

Things to do in Yangon, Myanmar

The atmosphere is relaxed here. I would even say the vibe is cool here. I feel like I’m gonna like it. We are very far from the tensed atmosphere of Dhaka in Bangladesh. Now I’m in Yangon, the capital of Myanmar. Or I’d rather say… the former capital of Myanmar. Since 2005, it’s Naypyidaw. But honestly, […]

Places to visit in Dhaka

No gibberish, I’ll go straight to the point. I didn’t like at all my stay in Bangladesh, precisely in Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh. I had planned to stay more or less two weeks in the country : arrive in Dhaka, visit the tea plantations in Srimangal, hang around the Kaptai lake, see Chittagong, and […]

Places to visit in Kathmandu

I didn’t have any particular expectations regarding Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal. Because all the travelers I met on the road beforehand, who had been there before I did, told me not so good things “Kathmandu is in chaos! Cars everywhere, it’s filthy, very noisy and there’s nothing to do there! You don’t need to […]

Ella and Kandy : visit to Central Sri Lanka

I decided to start off my trip in Sri Lanka by the south of the country, before heading to Ella and Kandy, in the center of the country. As days were passing by, I noticed almost all travelers were doing it the other way around : they prefer to save the beaches in the south for […]

Places to visit in Colombo and Galle, Sri Lanka

My visit to the south of Sri Lanka didn’t start out well. I’m starting to get used to the dumb customs officers… People told me before getting there “The locals in Sri Lanka have such a prejudice against black people. They think they’re all drug dealers, or doing suspicious business. In the street, people will […]

Visit to Kerala, God’s own country

You’ve probably heard about, or even seen from your own eyes that famous Indian headshake. We don’t really see it in the north of India (although it’s present there). But the more you head to the south of the country, the more the headshake gets visible. When I finally arrived in the south of India, […]

3 days in Singapore

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 […]

I thought that was how cool people were calling Kuala Lumpur, the capital of […]

Solomangarephobia, the fear of eating alone in public

solomangarephobia

We learn so much from traveling around the world. Of course, you learn about yourself, but you also learn about the other travelers, the way they travel, their mentality, etc… For instance, I didn’t know the fear of racism in a country is a selection criterion of many black people, when it comes to choose […]
