Angkor Wat

Angkor Wat and the rest of the temples in Siem Reap, Cambodia totally blew our minds!! I’ve been wanting to go for 10 years, but for some reason never made it until now. Even with all that anticipation and excitement, the place totally exceeded my expectations. The temples are mesmerising, and the feeling and atmosphere of being there is truly special. Not to mention that the people of Cambodia are warm, friendly and beautiful. One of the reasons why our trip to Angkor Wat and Siem…Continue Reading “5 Best Tips for visiting Angkor Wat and the Temples of Siem Reap”

Munks in Siem Reap

When you experience a place like Siem Reap, it’s hard to put it all into words. It’s needless to say that the area of Angkor Wat and the surrounding temples is breathtaking. But what also struck me about Cambodia are the beautiful people. Everyone are smiling, welcoming, warm and kind. During our week here, we haven’t encountered a single unfriendly person.

Secret beach in Bali

Unfortunately, Bali is getting more and more crowded, as the influx of tourists keep increasing every year. The beaches in Kuta, Seminyak and Canggu are way overcrowded (not to mention dirty), so we usually don’t hangout there too much. The beaches in the south part of Bali, however, are still pretty amazing. Most of them are also getting pretty crowded, but if you go off the beaten track, there are still hidden gems to be found. This weekend, we headed down to Nusa Dua to stay…Continue Reading “Secret Beach in Nusa Dua, Bali”

Jungle Getaway at Wapa di Ume resort in Ubud, Bali

As I’ve mentioned before, we love to explore this island, and to take time off for some “mini-vacations“. This time, we decided to explore the North side of Ubud, and headed up to Wapa di Ume villas. Wapa di Ume is a beautiful resort situated about 5 minutes drive to the North of Ubud centre. From there, we drove around on our scooters, exploring the area. Even after all these years in Bali, it’s crazy how unfamiliar I am with Ubud. Ubud town has become…Continue Reading “Jungle Getaway at Wapa di Ume Villas in Ubud, Bali”

As you all know, I love to travel and visit beautiful places. However, if there’s one thing that really can kill the experience for me, it’s when a place is overflown with tourists. Unfortunately, this is usually the case in Bali. But don’t be alarmed – we’ve found a solution to the problem: very early mornings. We wanted to visit the Tegalalang Rice Terraces (again), so we decided to get up at 4:50am to try to make it there in time for sunrise, and before all…Continue Reading “How to Visit Tegalalang Rice Terrace Without All The Tourists”

Starting a YouTube Channel

First of all, Happy New Year! I had a lot of New Year’s resolutions this year, as always, but already there seems to be just one I’ll stick to. And that is to start a YouTube channel. Not just that, but I challenge myself to put out 15 videos in 30 days. The reason I’m doing this is that I feel the continuous forced creativity will be amazing training. Second, it will also force me to go out an do cool stuff (let’s face it, no one…Continue Reading “Stepping Out of my Comfort Zone – Starting a YouTube Channel”
