GOA – am i really in INDIA ?!

my travels from hopset to GOA was by far the most fancy travel i had done in a long time. i booked an overnight sleeping-bus for tourists because it was the first time that i am travelling alone as a woman in india and a lot of people told me that i should always make sure that i am safe.
the bus left at 8 pm from hospet and arrived at 8 am in mapusa, GOA. i slept pretty much the whole time, i woke up a few times for a couple of minutes because of a speed bump or because i almost fall out off the bunk-bed when the bus was driving fast around a corner but thats it. i got a cold in the morning because there was aircon in the bus. i much prefer taking the local sleeping class in a train here in india but now i know better.

DHAMMA – the law of nature

before i came to india i had two goals for my stay there:
i wanted to do a yoga training and i also wanted to attend another vipassana meditation course. i already did one in new zealand but unfortunately i hardly practiced the meditation anymore so i wanted to do another course to get back in a good routine. i chose india as country because its a meditation technique which started in india many years ago. before we came to india we applied for a vipassana course and we didn’t get an answer the next month so we thaught the course is already full.

taking a bath in holy waterfalls – HAMPI

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.

my first sailing experience – how to snorkel in the GREAT BARRIER REEF for free

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

NOOSA & travelling up the coast for free to mackay – queensland

i left byron after staying there for a month. i spent my last couple of days in suffolk, it’s a place close to byron, at a friends place. it was literally just a 5 minutes walk away from the beach – HEAVEN!
i went snorkelling and saw an octopus & a small shark and i also tried to improve my surf skills a couple of times but i dont think i am not getting any better BUT i saw dolphins next to me in the water so that was pretty amazing. i went out to eat my favourite food in byron which is acai-bowls and indian food.

what do we need to be happy ?!

when i first started to earn money i was around 15 years old. i bought so much stuff which i didn’t need at all. i went shopping almost every day to buy new clothes. so many people i know focus on materialistic things.. they are only happy when they are nicely dressed and when they bought the newest i-phone, car and all that stuff. but once you have that you are not so happy anymore because you always want more and the market never sleeps, there is always a new phone or a new car and new fancy clothes that you can buy.

when i started my travels in december 2015 i went to a few countries in south-east-asia. i saw so many homeless people, street dogs and cats which made me feel really sad. Continue reading

chill vibes in BYRON – small hippietown

i arrived at 7 am in byron and all the cafes where still closed. i went to the beach and watched the sunrise and a view people bicycling on the street with the surfboards in their arms.

then i went to a cafe and grabbed a chai-latte. unfortunately they didn’t have wifi there and i couldn’t write my couchsurfing host in byron bay that i am here and he can pick me up anytime. there was another customer in the cafe and i asked him if he knows where there is a place with wifi here. he gave me his phone to contact my host and he said he can bring me to his place because it’s close to his work, so nice.
