Yeah, right!

With the idea to beat the heat and the tourist masses, we got up very early this first day in Thailand. Armed with cereal bowls and spoons and a box or granola and some milk we headed straight down to the Ao Nang beach to catch a long tail boat to Railey Beach, our destination […]

We headed straight back to the Shree Mangal Dvip School for Himalayan Kids where had spent several amazing days before heading to the Himalayas (read the blog post here) in the […]

We arrived in Nepal just days after Nepali New Year’s Day (April 14th), marking the beginning of the year 2072 of the Nepali calendar.

Singapore Speed Visit

In Big Trip 2015 Blog on the road By Sebastian
