Unlike the culinary colossuses that are its neighbours, Cambodia is not that well known in international food circles, but all that looks set to change. Just as Angkor has put Cambodia on the tourist map, so too amok (baked fish with lemongrass-based kreung paste, coconut and chilli in banana leaf) could put the country on the culinary map. Chicken Amok Fish Amok Cambodia has a great variety of national dishes, some similar… Read More

It’s hot. Damn hot. And the sweat starts to trickle down our foreheads as the shirt on our back slowly glues itself to our skin. Nice. It’s Bangkok baby – we’re sitting on plastic chairs, eating a spicy noodle soup and already got scammed by some random locals.

Cambodia, a country of great contrasts where the rich are super rich and the poor hardly have anything. But it feels like there is one thing that is not missing in anybody’s life… the joy of living. Despite having the 8th world wonder in its backyard, Cambodia’s real treasure is its people. Everybody gifted us with a smile and treated us with great hospitality.

Here we are in Bangkok. But the visit is shortlived as we are just here to get a visa at the Myanmar Embassy to enter the Republic of the Union of Myanmar.

Perhaps Asia’s greatest culinary secret, Vietnamese food is on the radar but hardly a global phenomenon. Essentially it’s all about the freshness of the ingredients – chefs shop twice-daily to source just-picked herbs from the market. The result? Incomparable texture and flavour combinations. For the Vietnamese, a meal should balance sour and sweet, crunchy and silky, fried and steamed, soup and salad. The country’s vast range of excellent edibles invites experimentation.

Okay, we admit it… We were a tiny little bit worried about the 130km ride from Hue to Hoi An on a rented scooter. But we did it, we survived, and it was by far the greatest adventure we experienced so far! But let’s take a few steps back… The good thing while travelling on the “backpacker trail” is that you get to know many travellers who have done many things already in… Read More

After a couple of days exploring Hanoi, we took a 4hrs bus ride to Ha Long Bay for a two days party boat trip. The scenery is indescribable. Even though, the weather wasn’t on our side, the trip was a total success. The misty weather turned the Ha Long Bay into a misterious landscape with rocks appearing out of the mist. Once we got deep enough into the rock landscape we were able to… Read More

Starting our trip of in Hong Kong was a good idea. There are even more impressions to process in Hanoi. But so far one of the most fascinating cities we’ve ever seen. The scenery with all the little shops on the side of each road, motorbikes everywhere, the friendly people, and the absolutely delicious food. Street Markets You can eat a great Pho Bo (Rice noodle soup with beef) or Pho Ga (rice… Read More

Where to start? There is so much to say about this vibrant and pulsing city it’s hard to find the right words. But we’ll try. We arrived in the late afternoon in Hong Kong where we finally met up to kick off our round the world trip. After a quick and last western snack at McDonalds (ohwwww goood, never again – worst idea in a long time) we headed off to the… Read More

Hey there, Alright, finally I’m on my way to Hong Kong to meet up with Chris and to kick off our Round the World trip. At the moment I’m sitting here at the Ngurah Rai International Airport in Bali and waiting for my 5 hours flight to Hong Kong. Surprisingly the internet here is faster than ever and so I decided to give you a little update on my time in Indonesia so far….
