I left Vanuatu after 2,5 months living on a sailboat there and jumped on a new boat, called Irie II. The owner is from Texas and it was so nice of him to give me a ride to Noumea.
He normally sails around the world single-handed since many years and I was the first crew he ever had for a passage. I bought lots of fruit and veggies to last us for the 2-3 day crossing but the wind was so weak and it took us longer than that.
After one month of sailing around in Vanuatu I went back to Port Vila, the capital of Vanuatu, by ferry. It was a 17 hours ferry ride from the north of Malekula Island. The ferry was very nice, a big area where you can sleep on the ground on a yoga mat or something and also on one of many comfortable benches. Continue reading
After three days of sailing from Fiji I arrived on the catamaran WAYFINDER in Port Vila, Vanuatus capital. It was my first crossing that I did by sailboat and I couldn’t have imagined it better.
I went to the market in Nadi town after I came back from a small island where I did a beach clean up and was living in a tent and run out of food.
I was happy that I could buy lots of fruits again, I really missed the market.
In the evening I had a call with a boat owner who was looking for a person to teach his girlfriend basic-english.
They told me that they only eat organic and mostly vegetarian food. They are from Brasil and the owners girlfriend doesn’t speak any english.
Also, I get my food and bed on board and can join them for surf and snorkel trips around the Mamanuca Islands in Fiji. He said that I can come anytime so I packed my stuff and made my way there the next day. Continue reading
Unfortunately we had all to leave Dravuni Island after 3 weeks because the job got cancelled and we all were very sad to leave the island already.
I didn’t make further plans for Fiji so I didn’t know what I want to do now. We all went back by ferry to Suva because the weather was too bad to take the speedboat.
It took us 5 hours and we all had an own small bed to ourselves. We bought lots of fruits and veggies in the market in Suva before we made our way to my friends place up in Nausori.
I was happy that I could stay there while figuring out a new plan what to do next. Continue reading
I flew with virgin australia from Bali to Nadi (FIJI). I had a short stopover in Sydney (Australia) for one hours.
I was so tired after a long flight overnight where I couldn’t sleep that I didn’t see the sign in Sydney which said international Transfer.
My flight from Cambodia to Bali was amazing because we landed in Bali around sunset-time and it looked incredible to fly next to the volcanos and land right next to the ocean.
The visa is free here in Bali for one month and when I collected my backpack again after I got my VISA stamp my shoes which I put outside on my backpack were gone.
I walked out of the airport and right before I exit the airport a guy came and told me that he wants to check my bag.
I thought okay Continue reading
A couple of years ago I found myself stuck in an office-job which I didn’t enjoy doing & I started to question everything in life a lot!
Everyone around me was doing a job they didn’t like in order to get 5 weeks holiday in a year and get pension when they turn 65 years.
They spent 40 hours a week working for someone else in order to get some income.
People around me were unhappy because they are just following everyone else & everyone is unhappy and need to get drunk on the weekend in order to forget about their life!
For me -> that was not a good option to do !!! Continue reading
An Indian guy who wrote me on the couch-surfing app came to cambodia for a short holiday. He told me that he can help me with making a great video as he loves doing that and so we met in Kep on my last day in the eco-lodge. We rented a scooter from there and drove another 25 km to the next city Kampot. It’s a small and chill city with a river and a national park around.
He booked a super nice place for us next to the river and outside of town. We stayed in a treehouse and I could sleep in a hammock.
I was so happy!
Kep is a small chill town on the coast of Cambodia. It once belonged to the french people & that’s why there are so many french people living now and almost every menu in the restaurants are written in french as well.
I found a volunteering job in a eco-lodge! (a french one of course) 😀
