Underwater Playground: Snorkelling In Koh Tao

Underwater Playground: Snorkelling In Koh Tao

Just like on my previous post about Koh Phangan, I am not going to go into too much detail about my visit to Koh Tao. You know it’s a beautiful place, you know it’s famous for its cheap diving courses and the incredible opportunity to see and swim with whale sharks — it’s an amazing island to say the least. My friend & travel buddy Buyana and I didn’t get…

Inspiration Is Everywhere

Inspiration Is Everywhere

Inspiration: that’s the theme for this week’s photo challenge. What inspires me in life? Well, lots of things. Travel, as you might guess, is probably the greatest source of inspiration for me. It’s Mother Nature‘s landscapes and habitats with their hypnotising colours and unique views; It’s the people you meet along the way and their stories — stories of sacrifices, great achievements and happiness; It’s humankind’s history, with tales and monuments…

Do It Your Way: Phangan Island

Do It Your Way: Phangan Island

“Not another one of those self-proclaimed bloggers with their ‘tips & tricks’ about traveling to a way-too-raved-about island that we all know too well already!”… Admit it, I read your mind right now, didn’t I? One of the many skills people don’t know I possess. Although to be honest, if it weren’t for the title, you wouldn’t exactly know which Thai island I was talking about, would you? From Koh…

Come Closer, Have A Look!

Come Closer, Have A Look!

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve edited the post I’m going to be uploading next about Thailand.

The White & The Black

The White & The Black

I was watching the Premios Platinos 2015 a couple of nights ago (which is the Spanish and Latin American equivalent of the Golden Globes) and among the different categories there was one for Best Documentary; the winner was “The Salt of the Earth”, a short film that tells the story of one of the best photojournalists of our time, Sabastião Salgado. Distinguished by his stark black and white photographs, Salgado and his…

The Truth About Backpacking Thailand

The Truth About Backpacking Thailand

Remember back in May when I told you guys I was going on an adventure and did weekly updates for (almost) 5 weeks until I came back and later said nothing more about the trip? (Try say that fast in one breath) Well, now I’m here to tell you all about it. It was my first solo backpacking trip and it was one amazing experience that I have been waiting…

Knock Knock On The Door

Knock Knock On The Door

Hello, children! (Chandler reference right there) I’m here to show you pictures of doors. For as boring and plain as it may sound, doors are quite interesting to look at and photograph – especially during the holiday season. This week’s photo challenge is just that: show photos of all the doors you have shot and stored in your archives for years and never really knew what to do with them…

5 Places To Visit In Singapore

If you have ever heard of Singapore (who hasn’t?) then you have also probably heard about their obsession with clean metros and well, basically clean-everything. If it were up to them, they would probably make you walk around with plastic bags over your shoes, making you clean up everything you have touched with your mandatory, personal disinfectant. Yes, you do get a fine if you drink water off your plastic…
