While there are a lot of interesting things to do and historical places to see in Jakarta (I’ll save these for another post), as a local who lives here, I often like to escape the hustle and bustle of the city for a more laid-back environment. In this post I’ll share my recommendations of day or weekend trips that you can take from Jakarta.
The northern region of Thailand differs considerably from the rest of the country, both in climate and geography as well as culturally and linguistically. An area with hill tribes, green mountains, rivers and waterfalls, often set against a backdrop of swirling mists and fog. It is an area that is perfect for the more adventurous traveler. Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai and Pai are the most famous places. If you want to see northern Thailand beyond its standard tourist attractions, have a further read. We have composed three different itineraries that will take you off the tourist trail.
Nairobi is not so straight forward when visiting as a traveler. What should you visit in Nairobi when you are staying for 2 days? Most travelers look at TripAdvisor that offer a handful of things to do in Nairobi, but they don’t give a good impression of Nairobi as a city or of the Kenyan culture, in my opinion. This is the reason I thought to write an article about it to highlight the hidden gems of Nairobi.
Yunlin is one of my favorite getaway places in Taiwan, as this was where I spent most of my childhood with my loving grannies. The place has changed a lot since I last visited it a couple of years ago. A city once considered the most underdeveloped area is now becoming a trendy hotspot and a must visit when you are traveling to Taiwan.
The following artsy hippie places are definitely worth a visit for any solo female traveler heading to Taiwan! Below is my suggested itinerary for a 1-day trip to HuWei township in YunLin.
Bali just made it to the number one global travel destination in 2017 in TripAdvisor Travelers Choice Awards ahead of London, Paris and Rome. What makes Bali truly unique and popular among travelers is that it combines all things many travelers are looking for. It has a tropical climate, delicious food, a vibrant culture, stunning nature, a relaxed vibe, picture-perfect beaches and underwater world. And on top of it all, it is easy to get around and easy to enjoy regardless of the money amount you want to leave here.
But popularity can often crush the soul of a destination and make it more difficult to find the hidden gems. Many travelers like me don’t like being surrounded by other tourists. Therefore, I am always on the hunt for the undiscovered and more unique places.
To make your life easier and help you find the best places to visit when in Bali, we have compiled a unique 3-week Bali off the beaten track itinerary for you. Curious? Read on!

Life is such a wonderful gift especially when you can explore the beautiful world we live in.

The number of people who want to travel and making the best out of their “annual leave” have rapidly increased. Research also shows that more meaningful work tend to be done in a span of short yet dedicated work hours and during our travel.

It all started in 2011. I quit my job to live abroad and travel the world. I pursued my passion and started a travel business with a mission. It was an interesting journey and definitely not an easy one. As I see many people struggling with the same questions I had at that time, I decided to share my experiences and lessons learned.
India is one of the most exotic countries in the world and I am a huge fan of Indian food. I think each Indian dish represents an independent and delicate culinary work. The distinctive aromatic flavour and the exuberant combination of spices are just as fascinating as the country itself!

If you are seeking to combine your love for cooking with an authentic Indian travel experience, then an Indian Home Cooking Class is maybe your cup of tea. If you’re a foodie on a constant search of unique dishes like me, The Full Belly Walk With Lavy may be what you’re looking for.
