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
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
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.

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
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
shilo, the work-away host from the farm in bangalow picked me up from byron. his farm is around 15 minutes drive to byron town.
there are around 8 people living on the farm. everyone has their own small caravan. we have a shared kitchen and bathroom.
there is a pizza oven and a slackline, a bonfire-place, a lot of ducks and chickens.. a lot of art and paintings everywhere. it’s such a a chill and cool place to live!
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.
