I flew to India in the beginning of February 2019. I had a long flight all the way from Australia with a long layover in Kuala Lumpur. My friend from Australia joined me for the trip to India which was awesome! I felt so much more secure having someone with me. Continue reading
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.
I chose the bus company Nattakan from Bangkok to Siem Reap in Cambodia. It was around 20 dollars for a 8-9 hour bus ride and we got water, snacks and a vegetarian lunch. Continue reading
On the 6th of February it was again time to say goodbye to my family and friends. I spent 1,5 months in Austria and it was so good to see everyone again. I spent as much time as I could with my family.
This time, I booked a flight from Munich to Bangkok with Ukraine airlines. I never used that airline before and now I know why. Continue reading
kai and i decided to go to prague for a couple of days because we both wanted to go there since a long time. i found really cheap bus tickets with the flixbus for 15 euros one way. it only took 4 hours by bus to reach there. Continue reading
i decided that i will fly back to austria to visit my friends and family for a bit. kai said he will join me so after the vipassana course and two nights were we did couchsurfing in the big and busy city mumbai it was time to make our way to the airport for our long journey to europe.
our visa expired on the 16th of december and our flight was in the morning of the 17th december so we thaught that it would be a good idea to go the night before to the airport and tell the airline our visa situation. 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

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. Continue reading
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.
