BEACH CLEAN-UP & HELICOPTER FLIGHT IN PARADISE – WHAT TO DO IN FIJI ?!

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

WHAT TO DO IN BALI !? escape the tourism

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

one of the most beautiful cities – KAMPOT, Cambodia

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, Cambodia – teaching english in an eco-lodge

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) 😀

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.
