we catched the bus from KR nagar where we did a workaway-job to the next city called mysore. our train was leaving mysore in the evening so we had a view hours to kill.
there is a huge palace in the middle of the centre so we decided to have a walk around there. at the entrance there was a sign that we had to pay to get into the temple.
kai and i are both not the biggest fans of tourist attractions where you have to pay. the man at the counter told us that we can go in for free because he saw us discussing before. the palace is huge and very pretty.
we finally left the citylife after 5 days and caught a metro and a bus down south to our new workaway place which was close to mysor, in a place called KR nagar.
the metros in bangalore were really fancy and you even have to go through a security check to enter the metro-station. in the metros there are power-plugs and it looks like it could be somewhere in europe.
the bus down to mysor took us around 4 hours and the road was pretty terrible. speedbumps everywhere and the busdriver didnt really slow down before they came so we flew through the air all the time. Continue reading
this time we tried a new airline for our flight to india. the airline is called spiceyet and the flight number was SG2. it sounded like a fake-airline and we were both not sure if this airline really exists.
our flight was at 2 am in the morning from sri lanka and it took us only 2 hours until we arrived in chennai, india. i slept the whole flight luckily because normally i can never sleep in planes.
i tried to buy a sim card on the airport in india but everything was closed because it was 5 in the morning and it was diwali, which is a big festival of lights in india and the people celebrate it like we celebrate christmas back home. it is an important day here in india! Continue reading

there are so many great ways which you should know about if you want to travel somewhere with a small budget:
after a couple of surfdays we took the localbus to a place called dondra, which is on the southcoast and not far away from matara. i found a workaway job for us where a local guy who bought an old house two years ago and wants to rennovate it to build a hostel which has a great location because it very close to the beach.

we left the animal-shelter after four days and took a tuk-tuk to kandy because the owner there told us that there is no train going from her place which was in peradeniya.
we went to the counter and wanted to buy the tickets to a place called ella which is in the mountains but the men told me that there is no train from kandy today and we have to go to peradeniya. Continue reading
after we brought my mum and sister to the airport we made our way to a new workaway place in peradeniya.
the owner of the hotel where we stayed the night drove us to the bus-station in town to catch the bus to the new place. after four hours of driving
through beautiful landscapes we finally arrived in peradeniya. i asked a tuk-tuk driver to call the number of the german lady who we were going to work for where he should bring us. it was another 15 minutes tuk tuk ride into the middle of nowhere. she lives up on a steep hill so we had to get out and push the tuk-tuk. it was very exhausting to go up that hill but we arrived shortly after our “hike”.
kai and i flew from the gold coast in australia to sri lanka on the 19.09.2017. we had an 8 hour flight to malaysia and from there it was another three hours flight
to colombo, sri lanka. when we arrived at the airport in colombo we waited in a line to get the visa stamp in our passport. the guy behind the counter didn’t even look at us, i never got a visa stamp so easy before. Continue reading
isabelle, the girl who stayed at the farm in mackay as well, drove up from mackay to airlie beach on saturday the 2nd of september.
it was the day were i met john, my new workaway-host. he lives in australia on the gold coast but he doesn’t like it there so he sails around since a long long time.
it was perfect for me because i didn’t have to hitchhike or arrange a bus-ticket. it was only a 1,5 hours drive to airlie beach and we arrived around lunchtime. Continue reading
kai and i arrived around lunchtime in mackay. after we finally loaded all the truck tires in the trailer we said goodbye to the man who brought us all the way up from noosa.
i got a text-message from our new workaway-host and she let us know that she will be around 3 hours late to pick us up from town so we had to wait for the next couple of hours.
we got dropped of next to a big shopping-hall so we “borrowed” a shopping-wagon to put all our stuff in it because it was a lot that we had to carry. Continue reading
